I have been working at NPP (National Purchasing Partners) full-time (More than a year)
Positive, wellness driven culture.
Managers are open to dialogue with you about personal and professional development.
Flexibility with in-office hours
Variety in work, ability to create your own projects.
Currently transitioning as a business, so things can get a little hectic, but it won't be hard if you're self motivated and bring your thinking hat.
Management has their doors open, but you'll likely have to walk in and step up if you want to get the most out of the development opportunities.
Advice to Management
Continue invest in genuine and visionary leaders who can provide hard working team members with goals and development opportunity. They will pay you back with their dedication and commitment to securing measurable results for the company.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NPP (National Purchasing Partners) (Seattle, WA) in January 2015.
There were two interviews. The first one was about 30 minutes long with a panel of 3 people (hiring manager and two account managers from your specific vertical you're applying for). Questions are about why you want to work there, what do you know about the company, and how can your previous experience be applied to NPP. The interview environment was relaxed and the interviewers made you feel welcomed. The second one is with HR which goes through each position on your resume and asks why you left it. They also tell you when the on-boarding is, how much you'll be paid, and when you will sign the offer letter. Very straightforward!
