I have been working at Herman Miller full-time (More than 10 years)
Great products, talented people, historically values driven, ethical, sustainable, design oriented
Ambitious CEO is driving the company hard, work-life balance doesn't exist, micro-managing from the top down is a problem

Helpful (1)No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Herman Miller (Zeeland, MI).
Herman Miller has excellent reputation in the industry for treating their employees well, but I had no idea that their interview process is so unprofessional. I went through 2 phone and 2 skype interviews for this position. First, phone interview with HR with basic interview questions. Second, phone interview with immediate supervisor with job related questions. Third, phone interview with VP with general questions. Fourth, skype presentation with both immediate supervisor and VP. The last part was a design challenge that they gave me 2 weeks to prepare and present. The whole interview process took 4 months. At the last presentation, they gave me positive feedback about my presentation and told me they would definitely let me know the next step next week. They didn't respond the following week(week 1), so I followed up (week 2). Then another week (week 3) went by, still no response at all! Totally unprofessional to a point of disrespectful. At least let the candidate know that he/she didn't make it, or that the company needs more time to decide. Finally, I sent another follow up email (week 4), and the HR finally sent a generic email that they decided to proceed with other candidates. I am disappointed that Herman Miller would treat interview candidates like that. Honestly, 4 weeks of absolutely no response (when they promised the following week), even when I followed up twice is NOT professional.
