    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Richards Group.

    Interview

    The interview itself was pretty average, but the feel of the place was very cultish. Everybody I interviewed with spoke about Stan and what he likes, dislikes, etc. It almost seemed like they were brainwashed. The building was amazing, but on my tour I was shown the women's restroom and told that at night you can see into the restroom from I-75. She then proceeding to tell me, "Stan loves bringing guys in here and showing them that they can see the women's restroom from the road". She thought it was funny, but I thought it was creepy. I've read several reviews that said sexism runs rampant here and she pretty much confirmed that with her story. I got the impression that the people were very fake and it's hard to grow in this company. I was even told by one of the interviewers that the company culture is "every man for himself" Overall, it seemed very sterile and creepy.
