    Pros

    The key to working here is communicating with the owner. Don't hide your mistakes, because the owner actually works here as an employee. He breathes, eats and sleeps with Playhut. He doesn't like to micro-manage, but he does prefer to know updates on what he hired you for. If you prove that you are trustworthy, he will take care of you. The dress code is casual and the schedule is relaxed, so long as you communicate your schedule changes to HR and the owner (and not sneak in or out: Big pet peeve for the owner.) Owner respects time off for family issues.

    Cons

    The kind of personality that works out well at Playhut: Communicative (doesn't have to be verbal, but communicative enough so that the owner knows what your accomplishments are for the benefit of his business.) Someone who is comfortable working near a passionate owner who tends to yell no matter what he is feeling (happy, excited, frustrated, disappointed etc.), Be able to pick up on training right away, by being proactive, taking notes etc. Someone with integrity: Having the ability to step up to the plate when making a mistake and working with the owner to find a solution for that problem.
    Someone with no fear! Someone innovative: owner doesn't like to stay behind with technology. But that person also must be frugal and intelligent with spending company funds. This is not a fortune 500 corporation. This is a small business with 30-40 employees total including designers, product managers, accounting, production, sales licensing, warehouse workers and sample sewing machine clerks.The owner is no nonsense, very perceptive and picks up on BS. This can make people very angry, when confronted. It's not your typical place to work, but def ok with me, even with the bad days.

    Advice to Management

    Management keep doing what you do. Great work! Make sure to also take your team out to lunch once in a while.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Playhut (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    This interview took me one half hours, meeting with the financial supervisor and their boss. Asking a lot about experience and techniques questions. But there are just 2 people in accounting department.
