I worked at Avery Dennison full-time (More than 10 years)
Great company to work for. Excellent pay, work was a lot of fun always working on something new. got a chance to develop a lot of new skills, and lean new technologies. Met a lot new people.
They close the facility where in California, misplacing a lot of the workers. sold most of the busyness in the west coast. Management changed now they only focus on the quick dollar.
Advice to Management
Get back to the basics focus on the people who work for you they are the once make the company. Without the people, you have no company.

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Avery Dennison (Pasadena, CA) in August 2010.
I was contacted after my resume was viewed on Monster.com. I was interviewed by a senior recruiting manager over the phone for about 20 minutes. The interviewer asked "Have you ever had a hiring manager that was impossible to work with?" and "Can you tell me about how you took a consultative approach with your hiring managers" "tell me about a time when you changed a hiring managers mind/influenced their decision"
I found these questions tough to answer, though I was probably a little underprepared. Every hiring manager's personality is different, and some are difficult and have to be treated with kid gloves, but I've never had an impossible hiring manager. I gave her one such example, but she seemed disappointed. For the second questions, as recruiters we influence our hiring managers every day in how we present them and in our follow-up of how their own interviews went by prompting a discussion that brings out our best candidates strengths. But, again she was looking for something over-the-top. Basically it was one of those interviews where you would have been better off making up a believable but fictitious story of some game-changing situation where the hiring manager was like "I was so blind, but now I see!" So the person has something to write down.
