You are working with the non-profit sector and therefore helping people who are really making this work a better place.
Inept management. They have a business model that worked years ago but refuse to adapt it to the changes in the world economy. When they cannot figure out what else to do they simply beat up on their people. Employees are expected to sell even if you are on vacation. They expect you to take your laptop with you everywhere and there is NO quota relief if you are sick or on vacation. So you're expected to sell no matter what.
Advice to Management
Clean house and start over. You've already started by getting rid of the biggest problem. Now you need to take a close look at all the "YES" men he surrounded himself with. There are some empty shirts there.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at eTapestry (Greenfield, IN) in June 2009.
I was referred by a friend for the position. I don't believe I would have gotten an interview without it, as there were many candidates who had applied for the position. I had a initial phone interview with general behavioral interview questions. I then had to take a couple online intelligence tests. After that I had a face to face interview. A week later I spent a day job-shadowing and had two separate interviews as well. I was supposed to hear back after a week. After I had not heard back for a little over a week, I called, left messages, and sent emails without hearing back at all. I finally received an email 4 weeks later without any explanation, saying they had planned on getting back to me earlier, but had already chosen someone else a while back. I was pretty angry considering my main contact and first interviewer are alums from my college, and they did not have the courtesy to respond to my emails or calls after several weeks. The job is also not a very glamorous job and I believe I was far overqualified.
