I worked at Blount International full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
A global company with a lot of potential, a lot of great talent throughout the organization, one of the best Continuous Improvement programs I have witnessed in the industry, the CEO (Josh Collins) leads by example and takes the time to know every employee.Cons
While the rest of the company is positioned to succeed, Blount's supply chain is struggling. Horrible hiring practices has led to filling management positions based entirely on "feel" and not solid education / skills / experience. The morale in the supply chain is the lowest seen at any company I have worked for. Communication is nonexistent and favoritism is played on a daily basis. They have lost a lot of good talent this year due to the ignorance of poor leadership and poor project execution.Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a phone interview with the HR and follow by a phone (panel) interview with the hiring managers. The first interview consist an online personality test and the phone conversations took about 1.5 hours to complete with the same HR person.
Then, it followed by a phone interview with the hiring managers. Second phone interview is cutting short and seems to be in a rush and the atmosphere is somewhat formal.Interview Questions
