Several people in the interview process asked questions regarding how I discipline my staff. I have been with my current company for a number of years and pride myself on the due diligence I put into my hiring process, and as a result, have had very few instances where I have had to discipline my staff. They did not seem pleased with that. Looking back on it, it seems that they may have been looking for more of a disciplinarian than a manager. It is unfortunate. In the course of management, you may have to discipline people, though I believe that if you put in your work on the front end and hire a top notch staff, you would gain more from having a leader than a disciplinarian.

From working at the Davidson Location you would need conflict resolution skills. A mixture of people from the South and the North is a clash. You should know that the company is spending a lot of time on cultural sensitivity, but it takes time. Check it out down the road; the atmosphere will change with time. Less

Answered. I’m so confused because they made a verbal offer. I countered for 2k more and a couple of hours later they said they would not move forward with an offer. I was only countering based on market average. If they would have told me the offer was firm, I wouldn’t have countered. This is the first time I’ve ever had this happen to me in my life. I was blessed to receive another offer and have 8 other 2nd interviews scheduled. I’m not even sure if the true reason is the counter offer because they are being so cold and won’t tell me. Arie just says, the hiring manager didn’t say why they aren’t moving forward with the offer. So strange. Less

I was told that they plan to build a nice office building - didn't say when. I was also told that many times people are in the office until 9:00 PM and weekends too. I was told that I am on the short list; however, I really don't want this job. I do not like disorder and chaos. Less
