I worked at CPI Qualified Plan Consultants full-time (More than 10 years)
Good employer based on the size of the community. Casual atmosphere and Casual dress code. Work with employees on training for all positions.
Purchased a few years back by a big corporation. They did some serious down sizing/changes after stating this would not happen. Home office now only concerned about the bottom dollar and not its employees.
Advice to Management
Listen to your employees and work with them not against them. Purchasing a company that you have no experience with does not make your systems better just because you are a huge company. CPI's systems worked well for a reason, they were user friendly. Stop trying to change what works. Work with the CPI teams to make Retirement firms that we work with realize why CPI is so easy to work with!
I applied in-person. I interviewed at CPI Qualified Plan Consultants (Great Bend, KS).
Application submission online or on paper. After HR goes thru the application they will call you in for a computer and handwritten tests. If you pass those tests then they set up interviews with the appropriate department they think you are eligible for. Interviews are set up with the Managers and or Team Leaders of the appropriate department. After the interview, each Manager\Team Leader will give their nod if they want to offer the applicant a job.
