I have been working at Influence & Co. full-time
Great people, creative environment, flexible environment
Fast paced and small growing pains
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Influence & Co. (Saint Louis, MO).
I had applied for an editorial position online. A couple of days later, an HR person emailed me to say that I was overqualified for that position but that a different position better fitting my lengthy background likely would open soon and that I should apply again. That position opened a week or two later, and the HR person emailed me about it. I formally applied and the HR person emailed with a request to talk about my background further. I was out of town but we arranged to talk by phone within a few days. At the appointed time, I called her and we spoke for about a half hour about my accomplishments, the company's needs, the editorial process and more. She said that because the company and team were young, they could use someone with my experience and leadership. She said that I was a shoo-in and that she'd set up an immediate appointment to speak with a manager and one of the company's founders for when I returned home. She said she'd be in contact within the next week. But a week went by with no contact, so I emailed her to ask if she needed anything further from me. I did the same after another week, and then another. Eventually, I decided that they weren't interested. It was all incredibly frustrating.
