I have been working at Central Garden & Pet full-time (More than a year)
Most coworkers I work closely with are in the same office. Management is generous with dress code and taking time off. Everyone is generally friendly and the working atmosphere is good.
The company as a whole has a very dispersed hierarchy that makes the largest/enterprise projects (no matter how urgent or agreed-on) take more effort and longer to realize.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Central Garden & Pet (Atlanta, GA) in December 2009.
I phone screened with Human Resources. Two weeks later the interviews where scheduled scheduled. This was quick compared to my other interview experiences this year. I interviewed with HR director, Hiring Manager and one of his colleagues. Everything was professional and mercifully rapid. My initial impressions were very positive, since I started these impressions have only been confirmed. The work culture here is progressive and oriented towards continuous improvement. Everyone seems interested in resolving big issues.
I was able to fit my salary wants into the brackets set for the position. I am making almost exactly what I made in my last job. After more than 7 months of searching I feel fortunate that I found a job in the same salary and bonus ball park as my last job.
