    Pros

    Working environment is outstanding. I love everyone I work with and work for. The Christmas Party and Employee Appreciation Day are the highlights of the year. Owners are accessible and pretty down to earth.

    Cons

    The wages are not as high as other places in the industry. There are some issues with management playing favorites. Some occasions where family members work under one another.

    Advice to Management

    Look to give opportunities to people within the company. There are a lot of talented people who work for the company and are not given the opportunity to prove themselves.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Word & Brown (Orange, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly simple. Questions were very direct, no curve ball. Had a phone interview screening with a recruiter who then passed on her notes to the hiring manager to see if she was interested in me as a candidate. They'll either say yes or no and then pass your resume on to someone else in a different department that they think is a better fit, then take a few assessment tests, and depending on the scores, it goes onto hiring manager to see if they're interested in scheduling an on-site interview.
