    I have been working at Central Garden & Pet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Central is very loyal to their employees and their employees to them in return. Majority of people in my office have been here 10+ years. Central promotes a family environment, and understands the importance of family first. Great benefits, tuition reimbursement, overall an amazing company to work for.

    Cons

    Needs a better growth plan for long term employees, but I do believe that is something they are working on.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Central Garden & Pet (Madison, GA (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Very professional and in depth. I participated in a phone pre-screening interview with talent acquisition, phone interview with head of research, and final interview with upper management of the division in which I was applying for a position. All were conducted in a very professional manner with excellent questions to enable me to provide the detailed information on my background/experience.
