Advice to Management
take less of a "downsizing" view of the companies you run. Your employees are your biggest asset, and cutting cost by eliminating positions is not the best way to do business.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FIC Corporation (Owensboro, KY (US)) in May-2010.
Initial interview was conducted at the location where the job was to be performed. This interview was done in a casual atmosphere and was conducted by the division president and incumbent, and took approximately 1 hour. After this interview was concluded, a second, more comprehensive interview was held at corporate headquarters, involving several other members of the corporate staff who held stake at the division, while not actually performing their work there. A very thorough process.
Negotiation was negligible. I asked for additional pay, per the range discussed in and after the second interview, but was told that "we make our best offer first, take it or leave it"
