*great benefits *minimum 9 paid holidays each year *generous sick leave *family oriented *competitive pay *tuition reimbursement for furthering education *37.5 hour workweeks with flextime (come in anytime between 7-9, leave 8 hours later with a half hour break for lunch) *promotes from within 99% of time *all jobs posted internally *average tenure is 15 years *generous vacation time after your first 90 days *generous bereavement
*strict business professional dress code *culture encourages people to use vacation time rather than sick time as "perfect attendance" (using no sick days) is awarded and recognized each year. for someone who is new to the company, its not always feasible to do this. *some could see as a con- I do not- every employee required to donate at least $1 a paycheck to "charity pledge plan" fund which then a committee decides where the funds are allocated. I think its a great cause! *employees who have been there for 20+ years can sometimes be stuck in their ways and resistant to change.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Modern Woodmen (Lincoln, NE).
I was contacted by the company after dropping my resume off at the career fair that Modern Woodmen attended at my university. I was asked to complete a thorough questionnaire to see if my values matched that of Modern Woodmen's. After getting a follow-up call from the company, they scheduled an initial interview the following week. The first interview essentially explained what Modern Woodmen did and stood for morally as a company. At the end, I was asked if I felt that I would be a good fit for the company, and after saying that I did, I was asked back for a second interview. The second interview followed much more of a standard interview with questions about my past experiences, career goals, and personality type.
- If you were offered a position at another larger company (Goldman Sachs, EY, etc.) while still being a Modern Woodmen employee, what would you do? Answer Question
I was told the hourly wage that commission employees at the office had agreed to pay the interns and asked. I was offered either the hourly wage or the opportunity to take the internship for college credit. I chose to take it for the hourly wage.
