    Pros

    Very solid group of people to work with, everyone wants to make things better in IT. Management tries very hard to be supportive and allow you to develop. It is a good group of people to work with and very few bad apples.

    Cons

    IT works very hard to try to meet the needs of the business with 10 - 40 year old technology and skeleton crew to make it work. New ideas are not embraced by the business because they want to stay doing things they way they have always done it. Very little "NEW" is adopted by the business, and no one seems to care. Most in the company would probably be happy going back to pen and paper to do everything.

    Advice to Management

    Don't waste time and money on developing technology and then just expect adoption to occur by osmosis. Support your IT, and don't allow fear mongering around new technology and new ideas.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at ProBuild.

    Interview

    Applied for a laborer position and was called to set up an interview one week later. When I got there I met with the operations manager. He said the interview was for an assembler position, not laborer. Not sure why they had the laborer position posted online in that case, but I said I wasn't interested.
