I have been working at Varney's full-time (More than a year)
Well established company. Has high job potential and multiple positions for hire. Good growing company.
Some divisions of the company do not offer competitive pay rates. Upper management does not communicate well with employees.
Advice to Management
Give more notice of overtime hours. Offer more competitive pay rate. Work closer with field employees
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Varney's (Manhattan, KS) in November 2010.
I interviewed with the human resources manager and the store manager. They asked me about my previous work experience and how I could relate it to the job. They asked how many people I was friends with anf how I could convince them to spend money with them. I found out I got the job a couple days later, like they told me. There isn't really any negotiating the pay. Good luck trying to get a raise! The main thing I learned was to do what they say...even if it seems backwards.
