    Pros

    -- Most positions are living-wage.

    -- Will hire people without degrees, even if the Job Requirements may demand so. The company values job experience.

    -- Growing company with many possibilities for advancement.

    -- Many positions allow for frequent travel, should you wish to do so.

    -- Genuine effort is made to provide good benefits (though it could be better).

    -- Growth and Job experience is second to none. A job here will put you in position to advance in the company or seek advance employment elsewhere.

    -- Reasonable office hours.

    -- Main office is located in a business park which has an adjacent pond. Walks around the business park campus can be de-stressing.

    Cons

    -- Office politics can adversely affect evaluations.

    -- Company was once privately owned. Since acquisition by a larger public corporation, the company is slowly losing some of it's once-excellent culture.

    -- Company has cut back on opportunities to work from home or remotely (especially in support positions). The quest to increase productivity unfortunately hurts morale.

    -- Base pay is below that of similar companies with comparable positions.

    Human Resources Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ithaca, NY
    Anonymous Employee in Ithaca, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at The CBORD Group in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was referred for the position by a professor of HR. I was contacted after the HR director received the referral to set up an interview the following day. The interview took place the following week and I received notification that the position went to someone else a week after that. It was a straight forward interview. I was asked to elaborate my experiences detailed on my resume. It was my first real, interview experience with a hiring manager and I may have been nervous. I am not sure what she was looking for but maybe the other candidate simply had more to offer. But nevertheless, the interview questions were simple and straightforward.
