    Pros

    We have great products that are made here in the USA and are 100% guaranteed. As a long-term employee we have always been committed to excellent customer service. Our management team is committed, honest and hard-working. They are true leaders dedicated to both our customers and the employees.

    Cons

    Communication has always been a struggle. We still need more streamlined processes in place because our plates can be a little full. The growth of the company came quickly and so it works backwards sometimes to still try and catch up with that.

    Advice to Management

    Stay committed to your employees and to what the company has always prided itself on - Customer Service!!!

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Champion Window.

    Interview

    I was "recruited" by a friend that worked there to apply so I turned in a resume and stopped in personally to talk to the appropriate manager. They had me fill out some application paperwork and then I left. A few days later I was called in to interview and I walked in with a dress shirt, tie, and dress slacks to look like appropriate for an interview and they thought I was applying for a sales job instead. I was interviewed by 3 people including the Division Manager. I have extensive experience in the position I applied for but one of the guys I interviewed with asked about my ability to hire good people under me and I said that I've got people that are willing to come with me if I get hired b/c of the current employer we were with. He thought I was all talk apparently and said not to make any promises b/c people always say that and never follow through (I can understand that). They asked me what I was wanting to get paid so I told them that if they could match my current employer I would be happy to come aboard. They told me only veteran employees make that much and that the amount they could offer would be "pretty much" the same once I factored their great benefits. I thought it was close but not quite. They initially "went with someone else" for the position I applied for but offered me a sales position (I hate 'selling') so I declined. A week later they called me back and offered me the original position I applied for. I later found out that their hire turned out to be a dud. It took a week and a half for them to get an offer to me and fire their original mistake. We negotiated and I accepted.

    Negotiation

    I negotiated my pay by highlighting my ability to solve their immediate need as well as grow their long term vision. I met them near the middle but was able to stay closer to my end of the package with the benefits. It took a week and a half but worked out and I'm looking forward to success.
