    I worked at SMART Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great product family that met the needs of educators across all grade levels. Great team to work with, very progressive understanding work/life balance.

    Cons

    Need to be more innovative, too late to the corporate market. Recognized the need early on for a line of product appropriate for corporate use but too slow in bringing it to market.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SMART Technologies in July 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed with corp recruiter, then District manager, then phone interview with National Sales manager and then the offer. Took place over the course of about two months and was a pretty easy process back then. I was very excited about the prospect of working for SMART at the time as it was just a case of leaving my old employee to find something new and exciting. I also knew that SMART was in trouble financially bit I was willing to take the risk for my career as it was and always will be a good mark on my resume!
