    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Master Lock full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back & friendly culture. Management is very approachable. Lot of growth and hiring. Overall job satisfaction is high - most employees retire out of the organization

    Cons

    Laid back - slow processes, lack of professional culture of a big organization like GE or NWM etc. Small teams.

    Advice to Management

    The management seems to still have a family run business kind of mentality. They need to embrace change and be more agile implementing the change.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Master Lock (Oak Creek, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    HR quickly responded after I submitted my resume. I interviewed with several persons and it went over the scheduled time [usually a good sign]. I was able to walk thru the office briefly and the receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. The corporate office in Oak Creek, WI is impressive!
