I have been working at Checkers Industrial Safety Products full-time (Less than a year)
I had heard a lot about the changes happening throughout the company so I was a little worried. I really need to be employed so I took a leap. It was an excellent decision so far. There are employees who weren't pulling their weight who have been let go recently and the whole atmosphere of the place has improved. Those of us who work hard are getting the recognition and validation deserved. Customers are happy. While I've only been here a short time, the respectful, professional atmosphere includes a warm family supportive feeling and I'm encouraged to ask questions and request additional training.
Training could be a bit more organized, but I know that is a work in progress.
I applied online. I interviewed at Checkers Industrial Safety Products (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.
I was contacted by a HR person to conduct a brief phone screen. The recruiter asked high-level behavioral questions that did not pertain to day-to-day tasks. She allotted time for questions, but was unable to answer anything related directly to the job. She indicated that I'd hear by the end of the week to schedule in-person meetings with the hiring manager the following week. The individual was permanently located at their out-of-state HQ and would b flying into town to conduct in-person interviews for the role. The end of the week deadline passed without a response, so I'd assumed they gone in another direction. Late on Tuesday of the following week, I received a call to come in the following day or Friday of the same week. When I called back the recruiter told me that the hiring manager had come in unexpectedly and would like to talk to me about the role. I knew that was a lie as I'd already been told they planned on doing interviews during this timeframe. At best they were terribly disorganized. Taking into account, how they treat you during the interview process is how they'll treat you as an employee, I refused to rearrange my schedule to accommodate the last minute request. I left the door open a crack by offering to make myself available for a phone interview. A few days later I received an automated response stating that there were no suitable positions available for my skill set. This was another falsehood as I'd already been contacted twice to interview for the position in which I'd applied.
