    I worked at Norgren full-time

    Pros

    I worked at Norgren, in Colorado, for 5 years. During that time the company went through some pretty strong ups and downs, along with all the other companies in our sector. During the highs there were lots of opportunities for career growth and during the lows the company seemed to do everything possible to take care of it's employees and not cut jobs.

    Cons

    Company seems to have very strong short term numbers focus, but then what public company doesn't . Location (Littleton Blvd and Broadway) isn't the greatest of locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After you've conducted your employee satisfaction surveys you could do a better job of telling the employees how/when you're responding to their concerns/requests. Some employees seem to feel the comments they make on those surveys simply fall on deaf ears.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Norgren.

    Interview Details

    I had a pretty thorough interview process: phone interview with recruiter, phone interview with VP/potential manager, in person interview with VP/potential manager, and in person interview with VP of HR. This was an open position due to relocation of the department.

    After the phone interviews alone, the VP made it very obvious that he wanted me for the role. The two in-person interviews cemented it.

    After days of leaving me hanging and ignoring my calls, I got a pathetic email from the recruiter riddled with spelling and grammar errors apologizing - an employee had decided to relocate after months of refusal and my potential spot was no longer open.

    Took them 3 weeks to call me back after applying online, and it was a three week process between phone interviews and in person interviews, and the job had been posted for quite some time. After a ridiculously long, inefficient process, the job was no longer open? And I had to beat that information out of them?

    My experience with HR/hiring mirrored other reviews from Norgren perfectly.

    This was definitely a blessing in disguise, as I received an offer to work for a much more professional, honorable group of people.
