    Pros

    I manage a service center 1 1/2 hours from company headquarters. My only job is to assign the routes for my drivers, then I am done for the day, usually by 8am. I take a 4 hour nap, shave my legs, eat lunch, then go home. On occasion, I will get up early from my nap and use the company van to go shopping or watch the local youths play tennis at a nearby park.

    Cons

    The only con to my job is someday they might catch me or shut down my service center. But after 20 years of service, I'm sure I have them fooled!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your yearly audits, I can handle your sour moods, trashed cars, and your little detective work for 1 day per year.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Aurora Casket (Aurora, IN) in July 2014.

    Interview

    typical process.....responded to an add, spoke with HR, spoke with hiring manager, meant with team, received offer , and accepted offer. Not much more to say...I think they were in a bind and needed someone soon.
