I have been working at Cornerstone Environmental full-time (More than 8 years)
Cornerstone is a company that genuinely cares about the individuals that work with them. In my experience, from early on they encourage me to express my opinions and worked with my strengths as an employee. It is a nice environment with a good work/life balance.
I would say that working at Cornerstone has only minor downsides which can be expected at any company. Regional decisions are made quickly, however decisions influencing the entire company can take awhile to develop and approve. Certainly a better company to work for than my prior employers..
Advice to Management
No particular advice. Improving the speed of the decision-making process would be helpful. 401k match and benefits generally meet general industry standard.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cornerstone Environmental in February 2015.
I applied online, just to a random drop box, no cover letter. Was contacted about a month later to "discuss the opportunity" by phone. I was a little irritated when I received the call because I didn't realize that "discuss the opportunity" meant a phone interview. None the less, I did the phone interview, which I thought didn't go too bad having to think on my feet. They said they would be in contact in about a week or so. I didn't hear back within the week, so I followed up. They said that the senior hiring manager hadn't yet looked at it, and that they would be in contact once that person did. I still didn't hear back for two weeks, so I followed up again. This time, I was told that the position was officially on hold, and that when it came off hold, I would be contacted. None the less, I haven't heard back for about a month and a half, so I'm assuming that I didn't get the position. I think that it was unprofessional to leave me tagging along for so long, as I'm working on my job search and it was my first phone interview ever. I just wish that they had politely declined me the position or at least let me know if they had chosen another candidate. In my opinion it doesn't matter how big or small your company is, if a person is interviewed in person or on the phone, I think that person deserves a response from the company regardless if they are offered a position or not. It's rude and unprofessional to be interviewed and never contacted again, especially after three follow ups to show interest in the position. Very unprofessional interview process.
