    I have been working at Columbia Ultimate full-time

    Pros

    Very Good company to work for in regards to family life. I am able to take time off when needed or work from home.

    Cons

    They hire executives that are not needed and pay them 6 figures a year while understaffing other parts of the company. They pay regular employees in comparison to what people got paid in the 1990's.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring senor management when they aren't needed. Pay employees what they are worth and quit under staffing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Columbia Ultimate (Vancouver, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    A weird interview.
    * Interviewer bragged about taking employees from a former company on my resume, trying to get me to trash that employer.
    * Employees laughed about disorganization.
    * The application form pried into every aspect of your personal life, asking: how I paid for college, what undergraduate courses did I like best (it's been 20 years since college), list part-time summer jobs. List out in excruciating detail my base salary, bonus salary, salary when I started, salary when I ended. What did all my supervisor have to say about me? What did I most and least like about my jobs. Can we have your social security number (before the hire-on offer)?
