    Pros

    This is a quickly growing company with a highly competent family ownership that makes decisions for long-term benefit of the organization, not only for immediate returns. Corporate values are lived every day, not just a poster on the wall. Sense of team and responsibility to each other is high. Rockline also attracts some of the top talent in the industry, so you will be working alongside bright minds.

    Cons

    There are and will continue to be growing pains related to the company determining how to organize for sustainable growth. The MO has been to implement a multitude of corporate processes, which can limit the agility needed to quickly respond to market conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly communicating the company's objectives and mission was a great way to keep the team engaged and focused - keep doing this, it pays dividends in employee buy-in.

    Production Line Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sheboygan, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockline Industries (Sheboygan, WI).

    Interview

    Thought I'd be a slam dunk candidate: many years of related experience, great references, in good health, arrived on time and dressed presentably, maintained a positive can-do attitude, and was applying for a position that had a generally undesirable working schedule.

    I was interviewed by an operator and a supervisor. While there was a structured interview at the end, the bulk of it was spent listening to a sermon about the company and the supervisor's personal success. Compared to interviews at other companies handled by HR professionals, this one was far less pleasant from the start and I felt like I was speaking to someone who enjoyed exercising his power. At the same time I was hearing about how badly the needed workers (farming out contracts to competitors because the demand is so great), he seemed indifferent towards my answers to his questions and enthusiasm about joining the team. Hearing about his personal financial success ("I was driving an Escalade during the recession") revealed this interview wasn't really about me.

    I'm only guessing, but I have a hunch that this particular supervisor is interested in working with people who are younger and more impressionable.
