Advice to Management
Trust your people at the customer-interface level. Pay wages according to the local economy. Deliver on the promises you make to employees. Give your employees an opportunity to grow.
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Smiths Detection (Baltimore, MD) in February 2017.
Initial phone interview with recruiter, Second phone interview with another recruiter. Third phone interview with hiring manager, company then flew me Maryland for a 45 min panel interview with 6 managers. After the interview in person the hiring manager stated they would get back to me within 2 weeks either way. I contacted them 3 weeks later, 4 weeks later 7 weeks later and recruiter stated they still havent made a decision. I still haven't heard back from them. On top of that, they flew me there but I needed to pay for Hotel, car and meals, then submit reimbursement forms. No reimbursement 8 week later. I gave up and told them to keep the money. Management is very indecisive, unprofessional and poor leadership from my experience. Others commented with the same opinion, but I didnt want to believe a staff could be that bad, but it is. Recruiting team and accounts payable really isn't that much better, so obviously this is the way the CEO wants his company directed. I really believe this would be a good place to work based on the importance of their products to the safety of Americans. But I don't believe that the people running the company, or its management team have the same feelings.
