    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, great product/concept, company sponsored non-profit Sustainable Research Institute, organic produce provided to employees from the company farmer/farm, company participates in the Bicycle Commuter Act, solar powered business

    Cons

    Based on my recent experience, Flat Management concept closer to "Don't get flattened" management, nepotism/cliches prevail, constructive feedback & supportive training rare. OSHA could close this place down due to the lack of enforced safety procedures & practices.

    Advice to Management

    Please get in touch with the reality of your flat management "experiment". Quit ignoring the lack of QC/QA in your company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sky Factory (Fairfield, IA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Candidates interview one on one with at least half the company so that a consensus can be achieved regarding hiring. They pride themselves on NOT hiring unfit candidates through this process.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were very typical of the interview process. The hardest question was "Why do you want to work here?"   1 Answer
