    I have been working at Vitacost full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Executive Integrity
    3 weeks for a typical technology advancement project vs. 6 months minimum anywhere else I've worked
    Autonomy
    Opportunity to drive business strategies and contribute in multiple ways including helping to set technical direction

    Cons

    open office layout (personally I like it though because of the ability to connect & converse directly with our Executives including the CEO)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the unofficial policy of waiting however long it takes to find the right people, rather than settling on someone just to fill a position. In my opinion this is why we have the highest-performance IT Team I've ever encountered in my career.

    Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Vitacost.

    Interview Details

    An executive assistance helped book travel arrangements, including flights, hotel accommodations, car rental and reimbursement for meals. The interview was meant to include 4-one hour blocks talking to separate people. Only two of those showed up and the interview ended a half an hour early. The company also has a strict guest/visitor policy and I was given a really hokey looking scrap of paper (meant to be a name tag) written with pen that someone came up with at the last second.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions were low-ball. One of the HR Representatives simply asked "so you think you can do this job?" before simply talking about the company, area, and when I could begin.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Several emails and a phone call were sent back and forth. The company was at least generous in terms of negotiating salary.
