    I have been working at Helen of Troy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is always room for growth. The company recently build a new DC in Olive Branch MS. Everyone is willing to help one another. Bonus was an added plus, and the team I worked with are very supportive.

    Cons

    The training process was improving right before I left, but I see great opportunities in this area for both DC in MS. I feel that the long hours are contributed to this reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to listen and understand the process fully before making changes. Understand how the change may effect other departments before it's considered. Take time to ask question and most importantly, stay positive and be open to learn and you will do great.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Helen of Troy.

    Interview Details

    Interview was really easy since is very difficult to find skilled personnel in El Paso area, and even more difficult for managerial positions since for someone coming from big cities is quite a change.
    Interviewed by future manager and HR person the first time, and then by CFO and other managers, but again, it was only polite chat since they can be too exigent and they "massage" you for the coming low ball offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The 'Not Negotiable" low ball offer when it comes to salary, unfortunately, i needed to work to pay the bills and i accepted. And that is the only reason they still have employees.   View Answer
