    I have been working at Lorillard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits, company car, flexible schedule, pay is good

    Cons

    Company is being sold, CEO is a sell out! CEO cares nothing for the history of our company. CEO is a crook like all the rest of the Executives shifting stock money around. CEO says great things about the company & employees, if it was so good why do you jump ship?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Lorillard in October 2011.

    Negotiation Details
    It's a long process, drug screen background check, BMW check, and credit check. If you do not have good credit don't bother, my credit was ok however I never cleared some things up with the credit bureaus so I had been given the offer of employment and then they recanted because of my credit. I cleared it all up and was offered back the position. They will also ask you give us a specific example of when you had a issue at work and how you resolved it..
