Company Updates

  • Gold Eagle Co. Featured in Forbes

    The automotive accessory manufacturer Gold Eagle Company, whose brands include 303 Products and STA-BIL, was one of the early adopters. “ We decided to roll out spin images on Amazon for our brands 303 Products and STA-BIL to allow consumers the opportunity to “touch and feel” our products virtually,” says Salisia Webber, Ecommerce Sales Manager, at Gold Eagle Co. Within the first couple of weeks of adding 360 spin images to their product pages, the company saw a 6-8% lift in conversion rates.

    I worked at Gold Eagle as an intern

    Pros

    The culture here is awesome, the office is so modern and I love how you can bring your dog to work on Fridays!

    Everyone is very nice and welcoming, they take the time to help you learn and give you real projects that advance your skills. They provide you with real world experience (you are NOT just packing boxes). You are included in meetings and are part of the team. You actually get your own cubicle! As an intern you are valued and they listen to your ideas and suggestions.

    You become part of the Gold Eagle family!

    Cons

    None, this company has great values and treats their team members well.

    Advice to Management

    It would be fun if there was a social event outside of the Gold Eagle office for all the interns to get to know one another, instead of just our department!

    To many people and many separate groups from various departments. Call backs were almost three weeks later. Very timely to make a hiring decision which was almost four weeks.
