Although the positive is the growth and the potential for more and the con is it is hard to keep up. But that is a good issue to have in this economy.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SodaStream (Cherry Hill, NJ).
Terrible interaction with HR, but once I got through to the actual person I'd be reporting to, things improved. It seems like HR is completely disconnected from the needs of the business.
Once if got through to the manager, the shenanigans stopped and I was treated nicely. Manager seemed honestly interested in making sure the 'culture' was a good match, but didn't spend much time making sure the 'skills' matched. In the end, that was fine for me, but it probably doesn't always work that way.
Ask lots of questions, like "Who are your competitors" "Where is the company going in the next 3-4 years."
Go in with some salary research, they like to underpay and talk up the benefits packages. 401k matching was 6%, which is nice, but the medical plan isn't anything special.
