I've learned a ton about the industry in my time here. I get to spend every day working with very intelligent and successful people. Everyone here is a resource for knowledge and always happy to offer help. The environment is relaxed and professional, management is accessible and supportive without being high-pressure, and you will get as much out of the job as you are willing to put into it. Come in and work hard and the sky is your limit.
Nothing about the company comes to mind. The industry itself can be intimidating at first if you aren't already familiar with it, but again, this is a great place to learn the ropes in a resourceful and encouraging environment.
Advice to Management
Continue to be accessible to and supportive of your employees on all levels. My positive relationship with management here has gone a long way in keeping me focused and motivated.
I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Turtle & Hughes (Elkhart, IN) in March 2012.
Manager sat me down with the buyer and asked me questions. They make you feel comfortable and confident! First, I sent in my resume. The manager called and set up an interview. He asked me questions such as- How would hiring me be beneficial to the company? How would you better organize the storeroom? After a criminal background check and a urine drug screen, I was immediatly hired and have been there since. I love it.
I didn't negotiate. He gave me more than what I was asking for right from the beginning. With another plus being the great benefits! Great Health and Dental insurance, 401k option, life insurance, and a health savings plan.
