The guys know how to make money, and the CEO is among the highest paid. The company is expanding fast, acquiring new facilities, generating more cash. It is happening fast. Stock prices are climbing.
From the inside, it is a gloomy picture with layoffs and long hours for salaried employees. Company president acts like a dictator with absolute authority, hiring and firing on minutes notice. My way or the highway makes employees feel demotivated and unappreciated.
Advice to Management
Be more transparent with your plans. Show appreciation and some respect to employees. A company president should not be a dictator and act like a narcissist. Stop underlying threats of terminating more employees.

It was almost a day long interview process where you get the chance to meet different people from the different departments you will interact. Most of the questions where behavioral, scenario based and experience related questions. They focused on my experience from college and the fit for the culture of the company.
