Mission: At Summer Infant, we strive to delight parents and babies, and walk beside them in their parenting journey by providing safe and innovative products that provide peace of mind.
I have been working at Summer Infant full-time (More than 5 years)
Family feel, really good people. Making products that help parents and babies is rewarding. Benefits keep getting better and better. Can wear jeans any day. Started with summer half day Fridays and now is year round. Just added time off for dads of new babies.
Fast pace can be stressful and/or exciting. Summer has gone through a lot of change in the past few years. New CEO is experienced and grounded - this is not a con - feels like Summer is headed in a positive direction.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing - so far so good.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Summer Infant (Woonsocket, RI) in August 2016.
Scheduled an in-person meeting with another product marketing manager and a senior product marketing manager. Interview took approximately 30 minutes and was conversational and some what laid back. Majority of the interview was asking about my past experience and then telling me about the long hours, weekends/holidays they work.
I had to email HR weeks after my interview on a status of my application to find out that they had taken a different route and decided to hire internally. Can't help but wonder if this was the plan all along - if that be the case, I commend you for not only wasting my time, but my efforts as well. Future applicants, BEWARE.
