    Pros

    You work with great people. The pay for where I was starting was exceptional. Benefits are good and getting better (401k price match just went up). Management has great people skills and a plan for each new hire. Work life balance is great usually 40 hours a week.

    Cons

    The training program could be more efficient. With more structure we could more than triple our progress.

    Advice to Management

    Like I said under cons, the training program could use more work. Sample quotes, workbooks, etc.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Patten Industries (Elmhurst, IL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring process took just under 3 weeks. Consisted of 1 phone screening, an interview, and a personality test. The screening is the most basic interview questions, asking basically strengths, areas of improvement, and so on. Sometime about a week later, I got a call from the sales manager asking me to come in for an interview that same day (but were willing to schedule later if needed). I interviewed with the Sales manager and the Inside Sales supervisor. I emailed a thank you to the sales manager who told me they were working on a job offer, pending a personality test. I took the test and passed. (As long as you were being honest in the interviews and screenings, it's a non issue.) About a week after that I got the offer. I think if you're open, honest, and have the credentials for the job that it's a pretty easy interview.

    Negotiation

    Offer was very generous and I accepted it. Didn't need to negotiate since it was more than I asked for.
