I worked at Altima Technologies full-time
Willing to hire quickly
Attempts to create company bonding moments
There are some co-workers that are willing to try to help you succeed.
Lack of local and/or national media marketing efforts to help bolster sales process
Lack of training and information on competitive products (why should they buy your product verse others or buy anything at all)
Very stoic office environment, nobody wants to say anything to anyone including management.
Poor use of company resources toward company growth.
Advice to Management
Altima needs to understand a company / product life cycle. When sales results aren't where you want them or they need to be, don't expect returns without continued investment in people, marketing trends, and continued training. The truth is, if you give people the correct tools they will produce. If you want a revolving door of people you will be spending more in the long run and your ROI is going to eat you up. Your lack of interest in what your employees think or need will be what essentially will close your doors as a company. Even the largest and seemingly impersonal corporations have the leaders ask employees "What can we do for you to do your job better". This question does have to come from the TOP at Altima and not from anyone else. Good luck, because I believe your going to need it.
I applied online. I interviewed at Altima Technologies (Lisle, IL) in May 2017.
I went in open minded thinking that all the previous reviews had to be outdated or false.
I couldn't have been more wrong. Believe every single review you read on this site.
I'm not going to rehash every review, but word for word... what was said before was exactly what I experienced.
1. Interviewers showed up late
2. Interviewers rude
3. CEO rude
4. Office has a very creepy vibe
The CEO demonstrated some horrible traits.
"This is my policy.... I am going give you my email address. You have 24hrs email what you want to be paid.... If I feel you are worth being paid that number I will call you in for a second interview, and I do not counter offer your salary"
I have never seen such an unprofessional practice in my life.
When I asked about this strange practice his answer was: "who am I to determine what your monetary value is?"
As others have said, avoid this company, I don't care if your going to be homeless, take a job at Mcdonalds you'll be treated with more respect than this company is willing to give.
