    Pros

    SR has a strong history in the Dayton market, and many great people not only locally, but across their organization. Many of the associates outside of Dayton are the brains of the organization and think "outside of the box" and bring those strategies to the corporate decision makers.

    Cons

    Historically a moving target on strategy decisions, sharing with those that fulfilled the requirements to succeed did not always happenen. Cost reductions and positions being eliminated due to low performance in sales and targets slowed the technology needs until recently, which has placed SR in a "catch-up mode".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the levels of upper management, there are too many "chiefs and not enough indians" to do the work to be effective long term. Ensure you provide the training and balance needed to keep good talent because without good talent, passion in what associates are involved in, more and more will find another company to work for. It doesn't make sense to have directors and manager titles without having people reporting to the, does it?

    Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Dayton, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Standard Register in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very friendly, open, and cordial at first. Implied they wanted to consider me for another higher level HR role. How could I refuse even though I was not interested in that position. Continued interviewing with directors and other HR Business Partners. At times the interviews with eight HR people in total became redundant and made me wonder about the company, eg. "have trouble finding people, have retention issues, integration with WorkflowOne taking longer than expected, not an impossibility though, need someone to cover our backs, someone couragerous and strong, we are wary, just in one day hired 5 people and 5 people quit". Then director wanted to speak with me about how the interviews went with her team. I kept calling her back but only to be put into voicemail even though I left times I would be calling her. Finally, did receive call back--"no longer interested in you, liked you personally but taking a different path with position. Good luck, bye". This is typical HR speak to minimize Legal risk and politely get lost. So, interview process went from friendly and very interested to harsh, cold and abrupt. Now I know why Standard is having hiring, selection, and retention problems, not to mention integration issuses.
