I worked at Colonial Surety Company full-time for less than a year

Pros

Benefits the day your start, lunches every Thursday (only in summer), leave early on Fridays in the summer...that's really it.

Cons

There could be so much potential with this place. The job itself is fine and the products are easy to sell once you learn about them (although training is haphazard). Upper management has no idea what is going on, high turnover rate, and overall bad morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have trust in your employees

    I worked at Colonial Surety Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -The people I interviewed with were all pleasant and I felt that I could potentially enjoy working here.

    Cons

    -Went through 3 rounds of interviews meeting with 5 different people. Was told the position would be filled in a month. They were down to 4 candidates and they would hire 2. Two months later HR explains that they will not be hiring anyone in this position at all. Really? These people honestly showed that they are either incompetent or just not that smart. I will be sure to tell everyone I come across not to do business with this company. I have never been through such a long interview process, just to be told that they decided not to fill this position. It is really disrespectful and shows that this company does not care about potential employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through with what you say. People are only as good as their word and from my experience these people are liars.
