    I have been working at Right Stuf full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked at Right Stuf for a little over a year now, and honestly my personal experience has been very positive. I joined during a time when there were many experienced people in my department, so I was able to get a lot of help on training and I never felt like I was unprepared for any task. The manager in my department has changed since I joined, but both managers were great in my opinion. Overall, everyone in the company seems approachable and helpful, both in my department and outside of it. In my entire year of working here I can't really recall any bad or unfair moments. This is only my personal opinion of course but, in my department at least it feels like it's a good atmosphere. Also, on another note, the benefits are awesome here!

    Cons

    I suppose a slight con would be that all the company parties and gatherings during the weekday are mandatory- and while these are very fun, sometimes I wish that employees would be allowed to not attend them if they want to keep working. I understand that the company wants to make it's employees feel like a family and do teambuilding and such, but sometimes these events, though short, seem like a distraction more then anything. And if an employee asks to not attend they may be seen as 'unsocial' or not interested in 'building teamwork'. And personally I wish this was not the case. It's not a big con though, more of a personal opinion.

    Advice to Management

    I can't think of anything major. Maybe just make sure that all employees are on the same page with policies and procedures, sometimes there are instances where one employee tells someone one thing, and another employee tells them something different. But this doesn't happen very often.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Right Stuf in July 2013.

    Interview

    The company, hiring process, and building is just plain strange. Everyone acts like they are abused animals. Afraid to ask or answer a question that may open them up to scrutiny among coworkers. The company is basically a warehouse for Japanese Animation DVDs.

    Interview Questions

    • Candidates are strung along, then told they must complete 'a packet' of assignments and upon completion will be called back in to 'defend' their work and answers.   1 Answer
