    I worked at Hartz Mountain full-time (More than a year)


    flexible hours, good middle management, fantastic work/life balance


    The company is transitioning away from a great company to work for, to one that kept cutting employee perks. A large Japanese company bought it out and is slowly cutting enployee's benefits and hassling people.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to maintain all the great things about the company you purchased, you should restore the parts of the company that kept so many enployees for 20+ years. If you keep cutting employee incentives, you will lose all the loyal and hardworking employees you invested in.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hartz Mountain.


    I was interviewed by the Directors, the VP for Marketing and the President at that time. Questions asked were very pragmatic, not theoretical, with a keen interest on how I demonstrated certain skill sets and qualities they were looking for. I remember that they wanted to be convinced that I can "roll up my sleeves", deal with ambiguity, and be persevering in conflict situations.
