    Great people. Informal atmosphere. Relatively easy to get things done. Very little "hierarchy" or working in silos. Great onboarding programs.


    As with other mid-size companies, budget constraints always pay a role in marketing budgets available.

    Advice to Management

    Your open and sharing management style is excellent. Do not change this as the company grows. It is a strength and seems to contribute to employee satisfaction.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lake Zurich, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Insight Beverages (Lake Zurich, IL) in June 2012.


    This seems like a solid company, but my interview process, get this, lasted 3 months. It started with a 1/2 hour phone interview, followed by 4 more face to face interviews. (Yes you read that correctly). They work through a recruiter and I was told that my resume needed work so I redid it. They were slow to follow up and I figured that they were very thorough in making sure there is a good fit, on both sides. I checked them out with former employees and no one had any complaints. I spoke with about 8 people up through the president of the company, twice. He went on and on about how the company is solid until the very end, at shich we talked for over an hour. Finally I was informed that I didnt have the hard skills for what they were looking for, which included the president's opinion-makes you wonder why he wasted my time at that point; I think he likes talking about how great the company is and how he gets about 30 offers to buy the company per week. The scope of the position expanded as time went on and I think they were looking to fill their Christmas wish list for the money they were about to spend on the position. At the end they wanted somone not just dedicated to running projects, but someone who would bring a project mgmt mentality to the place as well as looking at upgrading their business software, which is run by spreadsheets located on individual employees' computers.I found that they turned down one of their employees, the ops mgr, a six sigma black belt, for the position as well, so I would have that to contend with. I really dont think they know what they want at this point. Thank God I had and still have a job while talking to them. Imagine what a disaster it would have been if they made an offer and I accepted and a month into it, they let me go. Be very very careful when looking at this company; if you have a job think twice about jumping ship, if you are out of a job then still be very leery.
