    I have been working at Big Heart Pet Brands full-time


    Great people and leadership that genuinely cares. Flexible schedules depending on your manager, free on-site fitness classes


    Limited career opportunities in SF now that HQ is in Ohio. Lots of the best people have left/are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    The main reason for maintaining an SF presence was for the talent, so you should do your best not to lose your best people.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Big Heart Pet Brands (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.


    The process started with a phone interview with recruiter, then a phone interview with the hiring manager. I was asked to come on-site for an interview, which is still be scheduled.
