    I have been working at JM SWANK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I recently joined JM Swank and am enjoying the culture. It's a nice mix of long tenured staff and new hires. Everyone has that friendly "Iowa Nice" attitude and helps each other out.

    It's an exciting time as we transition to a stand-alone company and drive for growth. We are investing in many areas to enable that growth. We get to control our own destiny!

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change and that always presents challenges with communication. There is a lot of effort to address this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the drive to grow and improve the culture!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JM SWANK in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and JM Swank followed up to set up an interview. They scheduled an interview for a week later. The interview was with two members of the JM Swank team. I was asked about my experience, how it applied to the position, the industry, and how my skills could benefit JM Swank. The interview was professional, but not super stressful. I felt like the company took their time to get to know me as an individual. I left the interview excited about the possibility of working here based on my experience and what they had told me about the position. They followed up within a few days and kept me informed throughout the whole process about what was going and their timeline for a decision. Within a week, they offered me a position over the phone and I accepted.
