    Pros

    Having worked for several other large, fortune 500 companies I really appreciate the feel of a smaller company like Clement Pappas. Whereas before I was just another cog in a giant wheel, here you feel like a valued member of the team. The new CEO is really focused on making Clement Pappas a great place to work and has implemented various employee-centric initiatives, which are already paying off. Not only are they doing small things (like pizza lunches and changing the dress code to be jeans-friendly) but they are doing big things too. They are rewarding and recognizing strong employees and really increasing the opportunities for advancement through internal promotions and newly created positions. They are soliciting employee feedback and suggestions (and acting on it!). They are establishing a training program to give every employee access to developmental workshops and webinars. They provide tuition reimbursement, 401K match, paid maternity leave, etc. They continue to hold employee events like an annual company picnic, a holiday party, Superbowl tailgate lunch, etc. The communication between employees and management has improved significantly as well. When the Clement Pappas was private, the company strategy and overall objectives were unknown to the average employee. Now everyone in the company knows what's going on in the business, what the company goals are for the year, and how we are performing against them. In my opinion, that level of visibility gives an employee a better understanding of what they are working towards and makes you feel more connected to the business. The culture is definitely changing, but in a good way.

    Cons

    As in many companies, there is still a degree of departmental "thinking in silos" in certain groups. I believe it's up to the individual employee to build those cross-functional relationships and encourage more collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Clement Pappas & Co. (Seabrook, NJ) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview with Clement Pappas HR. Interviewer called and asked for me and then immediately started asking questions. She did not ask if this was a good time to discuss the position. I stopped her and asked if she could give me a minute to get my notes and bring up the job details.

    Interview Questions

    • The interviewer was only concerned about the amount of time spent on the production floor of my previous jobs. She said that their expectations were higher and I tried to explain that it was a different position.   Answer Question
