    Pros

    Never laid off. Raises were consistent with reliability for the first 15 years. Great co-workers. Steady growth in the beginning.

    Cons

    Stagnant wages in the last 5-7 years. Appears that the owner is unaware that the company is taking the same direction now that the previous owners ( Norlin ) , which made it possible for easy take over.

    Advice to Management

    Do more test marketing.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Gibson Guitar (Nashville, TN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Inefficient & ineffective. Three months, two phone interviews, 3 hours of psychological tests (most out of date & not relevant to the role), 1 hour of forms to fill out, and little initiative by company during process to keep me informed of the status of the search. After first interview with CEO was cancelled due to inclement weather and three weeks passed, I was informed by staffing manager that they had been unable to find time on CEO's schedule. She offered dates for following week, but I could not (due to prior interview commitments). No alternative dates/times were offered. After four weeks, I reached out to CHRO, who informed me - via email - that company had decided to not fill the position externally.
