Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thor Group (Manhattan Beach, CA) in June 2012.
Had a number of conversations with the President and other Senior Employees. Conversations were very comprehensive covering both past work experiences as well as Thor's company ideology. Employees seem very content, the majority of the office environment has been around for a while (5+years). Compensation favors those whoa re truly wiling to put in the extra effort.

- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thor Group (Manhattan Beach, CA) in July 2011.
Phone interview. Interview with GM (lasted 2 hours) then interview with President on a weekend (lasted 3 hours). Presentation to GM and Pres along with 2 other associates. 2 days after presentation, GM offered me the position.
- would you be willing to take on a management position? Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
During the time of the job offer, GM informed me of several additional responsibilities that were not on the original job description. Initial offer was less than have the industry average. I tried negotiating for a higher salary but the GM said that the company could not meet even 20% less than industry average. I felt that if I worked at Thor, I did not want to think of better opportunities out there, especially those that pay the industry average. Because they could not pay the industry average for the position, I declined.
