Advice to Management
You need offer long term incentive programs. Employees understand short term trade offs for profit sharing if a long term incentive program could be implmented.
I applied online. I interviewed at Data Systems International (Kansas City, MO) in June 2017.
The interview took place at their office in the P&L. I first met with the manager who I would've reported to, this took about 30 minutes. I then met with the CFO for 30 minutes, this would be the 'cultural fit' interview. That lasted for another 30 minutes and was pleasant enough, more of a conversation than an interview. Lastly, I met with 2 of the team members that I would've worked with for 30 minutes.
After we were done, I was told that I would be asked to come back the following week to meet with the Chief Revenue Officer, whose group I would be assisting with recruiting. The call never came so I sent an email to the manager who I had met with, asking about next steps. I never received a response until I got an email 2 months later saying that they were moving forward with candidates 'who more closely fit the requirements', whatever that means.
I found the lack of response annoying since my 2 previous positions were considerably more senior than the one I had just interviewed for. I understand that not every candidate who applies gets personal feedback, but once you have an in person interview, it's just common courtesy. The last section of the rejection letter invited me to apply for future positions. Given my experience the first time, I'll never apply there again.
Also, if this is how long HR takes just to hire their own people, I can't even imagine how long it takes them to hire associates in other groups.
