Old school company so they believe in loyalty and ownership. Most of the employees have been there from the get go so they take care of their own. Great opportunity for someone who is looking to stay local. Atmosphere is "homey". You want be where you can see your troubles are all the same. You want be where everybody knows your name.
A few downsides- old school company, old school rules. Very little on vacation/sick time. Zero sick time if you're in sales. Don't expect to take time off the last of the month or the during holiday. Compensation could be a bit better. You can tell who's favorited and who's not.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Blue Technologies.
To start, I will admit I had absolutely zero interest in this job, and treated it as a practice interview, but nonetheless took it rather seriously. The second I walked in, I could tell it would be a terrible workplace. Very quiet, somewhat snobby atmosphere, and was immediately asked for my completed application, which was never sent to me. I guarantee this hurt me in the interview process, even though I don't see it as my fault. Most of the interview went alright; however, a few questions that were asked seemed very condescending, unintelligent, and lacking common sense. I was even told that sales training consists of memorizing scripts, which from somebody who has worked in sales for years, is a terrible idea. I went on to ask them how large the company was, if relocation was possible, and if they are expanding, and was granted with a very enthusiastic "Yes! We are getting very big. We are opening an Akron location and even a Columbus in the future!" which is great, but was not what I was expecting when I hear about large expansion. The good: the lady interviewing me, I will withhold her name out of general courtesy, was overall definitely very friendly. There were one or two questions I was asked, which were mainly asking for clarification of my work history or the answers I gave, that seemed rather pointless and unintelligent, but aside from that, the interview itself was a rather enjoyable experience. The application was excessively long and mostly unnecessary, and the atmosphere overall did not seem like a high-morale workplace, but both the lady I interviewed with as well as another gentleman I talked to in the office were friendly, rather outgoing people. I think this is a type of workplace and company that suits people of a different personality type than myself; I have tended to work in a fast-paced environment, with high performance standards, but very relaxed office atmosphere and rather informal culture. If you have a personality or professional persona that is different than mine, you might fit in very well
