    I have been working at Norm Thompson full-time

    Pros

    Great people and team environment! Culture is one of being able to make your own decisions and being responsible in helping grow the future of the company. We are encouraged to be entrepreneurials and make changes as needed to move the company forward. There are a lot of passionate people here working towards the same common goal!

    Cons

    The only con is that it's retail. You have to have the drive and passion to work retail. It's not for everyone. Are there long hours? Sometimes yes, that's retail. Are there direction changes, last minute changes and a little bit of craziness? Sometimes yes, that's retail and reacting to the immediate needs of the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Need system upgrades.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Norm Thompson (Hillsboro, OR) in October 2014.

    one interview was a phone interview, then had two or three in person with various people. The process was fine and very professional. I was offered the job within about a week.

    Negotiation

    The one thing I tried to negotiate they were unwilling to due to corp. policy, however my other expectations were met so did not push it.
