    I have been working at Empire Today full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is really nice.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. Desire for local management to hold onto employees instead of cutting dead weight can be felt by quality employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for the level of commitment you have. Cut the dead weight.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Empire Today (Northlake, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted directly from the recruiter via Indeed, phone screen with him and did an interview with the manager and admin specialist- both were cool and easy Interview . I enjoyed the lighting round questions - maybe that was the behavioral questions as stated that I would be asked?
    Location was eh for me especially when trucks are backing up or about to when you try to enter only to have to turn around to convenience them to get into the tight one way parking lot. Receptionist wasn't exactly enthusiastic or as professional , but was decent. I already didn't want the job once I got to the parking lot when I arrived , but decided to go do the interview anyways which ended up being an easy going one. But never received a courtesy notice that I wasn't selected for the position , as like other companies nowadays even after you had to get out of work early and hike a commute to it.
