  • The CEO's kids have purchased the company. Have no idea what they're doing.

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code.
    Work schedule was good.

    Cons

    Micromanaged by high levels (Chief Marketing Officer)
    Only the "yes" men move up in the company.
    "Good ole boy" system in place.
    "C" Levels do not appear to communicate with each other as to the direction they're committed to going.
    Four "kids" (they're adults, but the CEO's offspring) own the company now. The potential for real career growth is nonexistent now.
    CMO manages through "eyes and ears" in all the respective branches, and then promotes these individuals over time. You don't know who to trust, so trust no one.

    Advice to Management

    Stop moving in million directions at once, getting nowhere. Focus.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Jensen Precast (Sparks, NV) in August 2010.

    Interview

    As was referred by a current employee. Told to send in my resume, that was forwarded to the decision maker/s for the job through internal referral. I was contacted for a phone interview which went well. Covered questions regarding my background and what the job entailed. After passing this phase I was asked to come in for a face-to-face with the Customer Relations Manager and the Controller. That went fairly well. My next call was from the CFO for a face-to-face.

    My perception at the time, was that the organization was healthy and they based their hiring decisions more on personality fit that skill. That was appealing to me. Though they are in the construction business, the facility was always spotless, with on on-site janitor always cleaning.

    The advise for other candidates...look elsewhere.

    Negotiation
