    I worked at Lorillard (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company with a "Family" atmosphere. Benefits and compensation was above average. Advancement within the company was easily obtained if one desired it and was qualified.

    Cons

    After 250 years, the was Company sold. The restructered company (ITG) has reduced the pension benefits. Current employees are not feeling the 'family' warmth.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lorillard (Dorchester, SC).

    Interview

    Was called by a manager trainee, and asked if I were still interested in the job, etc..
    Asked 5-6 basic questions to ensure I was serious about the job (does the salary meet your financial requirements, etc.)
    Then was scheduled for a online personality test of about 50-60 questions which were answered on a scale of (highly disagree - highly agree)
    Then was finally scheduled for an in person interview.
    Was brought into a hotel conference center w/ Division Manager, Assistant Division Manager, and Regional Manager.
    Atmosphere was friendly and professional
    Asked basic interview questions (what makes you the best candidate for the job, etc.)

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation in salary. I knew about this before hand from a friend. Apparently if you asked for a negotiated salary, your interview was cut short because it was non-negotiable.
