    I worked at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Professional people, great atmosphere, tons of employee perks (too many to list), and solid benefits package including PTO, Health/Vision/Dental, 401(k).

    Cons

    Upper management seems to want more of a hand in the middle-workings of everything. It makes it difficult to respond to industry norms in a timely fashion.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to initiate and/or test quick changes and ideas freely. Take out the "We've been doing it like this for a long time" aspect and move forward - or get left behind.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads (Grants Pass, OR) in October 2015.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview with HR and then an in-person interview with the department heads and HR. No salary negotiation. I was required to take a basic skills test on a computer, which had absolutely nothing to do with the position I was applying for, and seemed rather offensive considering it would have been very challenging for someone with a reading disability such as dsylexia, even though someone with that disability would still be able to do my job. Upon hire they require a drug test, which again had nothing to do with the position I was applying for.
