    I worked at BIC (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Setup so training is long enough so when your on a Machine by yourself you have confidence enough to work faster and become reliable.

    Cons

    Breaks are set in stone when the productivity would be the same if they slid another break in there. Maybe better.

    Advice to Management

    Absolutely loved working there. I believe the boss I had was a Matt Farrell. Reason I remember is his first name and even last initial is the same. Unfortunately a huge life event put a quick end to my employment but would recommend the job to anyone who, like myself, likes to put in a hard days work for decent pay. Only issue I can address or think of would be the presences of actual management on the floor instead of listening to someone who a new employee wonders if he is making the correct change or if the person who ces to help knows what the heck he's talking about.

    MBA Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BIC (Hartford, CT) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was poor. I applied for an internship and got the interview email another hour and scheduled an interview after two days. When the recruiter called me she was busy somewhere else and I stopped twice to check the call connection. She was not even listening to me. I don't know why she called. The worst interview I have ever given
