    I have been working at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY full-time

    Pros

    - The company culture is amazing. I can only speak to my experience, but both my department and teams outside of my own were extremely welcoming and helpful from the very beginning.

    - Herschel cultivates an extremely collaborative environment. You're given a seat at the table, so to speak, and have an ability to effect change at the company.

    - You can feel the passion from the founders of the business and you'll find them walking around the office, sitting in on meetings, and greeting you as they pass by. They're personable and easy to approach.

    - There is a high-calibre talent at head office across all departments. Many employees possess a wealth of knowledge and experience from other top tier firms and global companies, At the same time, no one takes themselves too seriously.

    - Comprehensive health insurance plan

    - Friday afternoon drinks at the office

    Cons

    - Although the Herschel brand is renowned and far-reaching, teams are probably much leaner than most people expect—sometimes there is a lack of structure.

    - Remuneration could be more competitive and salary increases and promotions are inconsistent and often delayed.

    - There needs to be a healthier and stronger HR presence.

    - Lack of employee parking spots—If you drive to work, you either have to get to the office extremely early to snag one or be forced to pay unless you want to try to find a free parking spot and move your car every hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HERSCHEL SUPPLY COMPANY (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I was emailed by a recruiter and set up an interview within the next week. The interview was very comfortable and we talked for about an hour about my previous projects and experience, the two that were interviewing me explained more about the position.
    I was given an office tour at the end of the interview. Overall It was a very pleasant experience.
    I was a bit disappointed that I never received a follow-up and only received a rejection after emailing them.
