    I have been working at ASI (Advertising Specialty Institute) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy working at ASI because the company is very generous to it's employees especially during the holidays. Everyone in my department (including my supervisor) works hard and they share information which is a huge problem in most companies. I am challenged and appreciated all the time. Everything that they promised me during the interview came true. I am encouraged to think outside of the box and there are plenty of projects to go around. When I was going through a family members illness they were very accommodating and emphatic which really helped while I was going through a real difficult time. My supervisor is cool, easy to talk to and he manages our group well. I hear that there is a lot of office drama but I don't know anything about that, I just come to work everyday, work hard and go home with a great sense of accomplishment. I've been around for a long time and I have worked for a few company's and although no company is perfect ASI comes pretty close. If I have it my way this is be my last place of employment.

    Cons

    In my opinion it's hard to find any issues with ASI but if I have to put something down it would to have more PTO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about "Profit Sharing." Let the employee's have a stake in the company and see the productivity soar.

    Senior IT Support Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at ASI (Advertising Specialty Institute) in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a posted position I saw in careerbuilder. One week later I was contacted by email from HR requesting a time to have a phone interview. I replied with my time schedule. The phone interview was about 20 minutes. The standard questions were asked such as why was I leaving my current employer. What were my job duties. What I liked best and least about my current employer. We discuss all of my past jobs on my resume. We discuss my experience and education and how it applied to the job I was applying for. She asked why did I want to work for ASI and what did I know about the company. After that interview I had four other interviews. I interviewed with my IT manager, the systems administrator, the IT director and the IT vice president and they all wanted to know about my job history, work experience and they thoroughly drilled on my troubleshooting methods. The whole interviewing process took about three weeks. After the last interview it took them three days to call me to let me know that I got the position. We talked about the salary and the position title and they gave me what i asked for plus four bonus's throughout the year. When I walked into ASI I immediately felt a good vibe. Everyone spoke to me and all were very friendly. I was given a tour and most of the people I saw seemed to be happy and hardworking. There was plenty of parking. Starbucks was on site and a cafeteria with hot and cold food served. They even had a daycare for its employee's. The day I started working I received all the tools I needed for the job...cellphone, laptop, computer and office supplies.
