    I worked at HP Hood full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Pay and Good Community Atmosphere. Opportunities available for career advancement. Provided me with work experience that I will carry with me later in my career.

    Cons

    Long hours and frequent mandatory overtime. There is not a lot of job security given such a high stakes work environment.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HP Hood (Winchester, VA).

    Interview

    Alot of questions from someone who clearly just started as a HR Recruiter with the company. Never returned any of my calls and said the hiring manager would be calling me to set up a face to face interview. It's been 3months now along with calls and emails. Still no return call. They signed up to help military spouses get jobs but didn't hold their end when you have a good candidate. I'll pass on ever calling or applying to this company again. Job still open. Town has a small population. My background is nothing but HR and federal.
