    Pros

    I would have never in my life imagined I would be in an office position, but after 2 years I've really grown accustomed to it. I love my coworkers and most of the supervisors. We get lots of incentives and if you really show your true colors, you will be recognized; Whether good or bad. Operations has come a Looooooooooooong way since I first started and its really appreciated. You get a causal dress code (They understand that some days we want to wear Sweats and Sneakers), Wonderful training schedule established (Unlike when I first started, which consisted of the trainer drawing on her arm and looking at cat pictures online.) Each department has designated Mentors to assist employees while management and supervisors are busy in meetings and conferences, Pretty standard pay for the amount of work performed, and advancements for those who exceed. Alot of the reviews on here commented on cattiness which has really been eliminated in the past couple of months thanks to management taking care of the problem employees. They give opportunities to people with all sorts of degrees and even those without degrees, we all simply start on the same level and management recognizes are strengths and weaknesses and helps direct us to the right roles for us. Supervisors do seem overworked for such a small pay, but they still hold a positive attitude which is really something special if you ask me. Its a very diverse environment, so not a lot of cookie cutter coworkers and the company really thrives on self expression! Did I mention we have a brewery, Food truck, convenience stores in each building, fresh fruit and bagels delivered to us, and a free gym? plus I really find the benefits on par for an entry level job.

    Cons

    Alot of change. The company really changes alot which is to be expected if the company wants to thrive but it can make it a little stressful at times with changing policies weekly. I don't think this is really somewhere to make a career, but for fresh collage graduates? Its perfect to get your feet wet in professionalism and basic work skills. The pay is a little low for someone who may want to live alone or is trying to raise a family, but for a single graduate like myself I've really seen the company impact me in a positive way. Don't expect to keep your job if you don't have a good work ethic, or the management will put you in your place...which is on the streets.

    Advice to Management

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CastleBranch (Wilmington, NC) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely simple. I had a very easy phone interview with somebody in the Human resources department. It seemed like more of a formality than an actual interview. She set up another interview for the next day, which seemed a bit odd and way to easy. The actual interview was really easy and the questions asked that were dumb like what song would I sing if I were on American Idol. It all seemed fake
