I have been working at VMH International full-time (More than a year)
Benefits are average for a small company. The work is technical and very dynamic in nature, but this leads to a lot to rewarding experiences as you can see your work and progress impact the organization over the fiscal year. The company is small enough to where you have the 'ear' of the CEO and President to make effective and timely decisions.
The amount of work is endless, with the expectation that it will all get finished relatively quickly. Each week there will be a new list of top priority projects that have to be addressed, so you can sometimes feel like your long work week has accomplished very little. Expect to wear many 'hats' and be accountable for all company activities, even those that are not relevant to your position.
Advice to Management
Build a strong culture and establish yearly corporate goals at the beginning of the FY that are not just 'make sales quota'. This will help the team stay focus on the important tasks and it will allow the internal team to feel like they are working together towards a common goal - sense of unity.
I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at VMH International (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2012.
Interview process started through email communication and led to phone interview for qualification. After moving past the phone interview they will bring you for the face to face interview. The face to face portion starts with an introduction and walk through of the office, then you sit down with other members currently in that role. Then you sit down with CEO and CFO to discuss more detailed questions about job history, experience, etc.
I was not in a position to negotiate. However, I would start with 10% more than your currently salary and work down from there.
