    I worked at Hartville Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For a while strong and intelligent leadership made decisions at the company, after key leaders left, new individuals were added that had no experience and blamed past leaders for all problems.

    Cons

    Current management looks to blame past leadership for all the problems while those problems are their own. There's a reason why they were forced out of their last job.

    Advice to Management

    Sack most of middle/senior management and find some true talent.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Hartville Group (Akron, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Frustrating. I was called in within hours of submitting my resume, and had an immediate phone interview. She scheduled me an in person interview later that week. I show up for the in person interview and immediately have to fill out a 9 page application, which took about 20 minutes to complete thoroughly. The group of people who interviewed me were not ready, so I had to wait longer. On top of that, I was told it would a 1:1 interview. I'm pretty good at improvising, but anyone would appreciate the opportunity to prepare for an interview properly.

    The interview was great. The company was great. I was in the room with them for almost an hour, and I left feeling incredibly optimistic this was my next career move. I was promised I'd have an answer either way within the week, and that someone would definitely be back to me.

    That was January. After numerous follow up emails to each of my interviewers, it's now April with not even as much as a phone call. I found out from a friend who works there that they hired two people a week later. I've since moved on and secured a much better position at an awesome company doing twice the job I interviewed for here.

    Snooze you lose, I suppose.
