I have been working at Helen of Troy full-time (More than 5 years)
Friendly environment. Great hours. Good benefits. Great to get your chops and then move on.
Hard to move up the ladder. Not too many options available. Salary is very low to national average.
Advice to Management
If you plan to keep top notch employees offer them better career options, do not focus only on top management but also at the lower levels.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Helen of Troy (El Paso, TX) in September 2016.
I was first contacted by HR, then I talked on the phone with another peer Director, then the hiring manager. Once those interviews were completed, an onsite interview in El Paso was scheduled a month later. I was told they would cover hotel and air, but car would need to be out of pocket and reimbursed later. I interviewed with 4 separate people face to face on the same day and one on the phone, after a 3 hour flight from Chicago.
Once I was turned down for the position, I sent up to 10 requests for reimbursement on my car rental and parking at O'hare, and my requests went unanswered and no reimbursement was forthcoming.
