    I have been working at Hobsons full-time

    Pros

    Huge trim of the underperforming product portfolio and the dead wood associated with it. Can now focus on professional management of a profitable and thriving business.

    Cons

    At this time there is not much other than below advice to the new leadership team here at new Hobsons

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone buys into the mission yet so senior management needs to explain in detail the product strategy, approach to market and how it will positively impact students and the bottom line. Just saying we are investing is not enough.

    Interview

    The posting was on craigslist. I sent my resume, got an email back saying saying give me three time slots for three different days. from one the Manager, I emailed right back with the days and time. Never heard from him, after 4 days I get an email saying sorry, I was busy can you give me some days and time again. I emailed back. got a phone interview next day. Interview was nice simple. I got a call back the next day for onsite interview. 4 people interviewed me very nice people. One of the manager said we all like you that is never heard back from them again. I emailed the manager back, he said give me two we will extend and offer, that is it never heard back.
