    Pros

    It was generally a relaxed atmosphere, though given the industry, that was to be expected. The CEO was seen, and engaged with staff almost daily (unless he was away on trips). Humor was a big part of the culture. There was an end of the year bonus for most employees in the form of gift cards. Benefits were standard. The warehouse was climate controlled.

    Cons

    It is a family run business, with sons and daughter(s) involved. If one out shined them in documented performance, and/or offers constructive criticism, it was disregarded. And those normally praised actions could find you unemployed (this happened to quite a number of employees). Pay was not in line with performance or experience, while the CEO flaunted his wealth. There was a general disregard of industry peers and customers by the family (though that was getting slightly better). Given the industry, it proved difficult at times dealing with customers and their product dissatisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be paid their demonstrated worth. Executives/family should listen to customers and staff for improvements. Every business has the ability to be better.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Fleshlight (Austin, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was awful. The woman making the times could not understand I was two hours behind... 4 times in a row. I understand once but wow. I had another job at the time and getting 4 phone calls in a row while in a meeting from someone who doesn't have the time right is ridiculous. Again this happened 4 separate times despite me clarifying her time to be ready versus mine.

    They also seemed very immature for their disciplines. It also seemed like they wanted a jack of all trades which we all know is a single point of failure for a business wanting to "launch to a new level". This company makes way too much money to not have professionals in separate disciplines.

    It also seemed like the owner changes his mind with the wind. I have seen this before and working for a company where the owner controls design with no training or experience is a nightmare. Chaos and a road to awful marketing efforts.

    They also were surprised when I told them my ball park for salary which is standard for my level and my industry. (I got hired a week later by a company giving me what I wanted)
