    I worked at Absolutely New full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Met some really great people, creative, and just overall well rounded. Very diverse staff. Richard (CEO) did a fairly good job of always keeping the employees informed on the big decisions taking place and how it affects them.

    Cons

    Pay is below market. Always felt like the company could go under at any moment. Some employees really don't care, and it sucks b/c if you want to do your job well, it requires them to do it well. Employee turn over is fast (esp in sales dept). Departments were very siloed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Challenge people to keep pushing the envelope, hire good people, continue to keep them informed and do what you can to keep morale up.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Absolutely New.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screening - asking if you were comfortable speaking on the phone 90% of the time.

    In person - a lot of scenario questions, "explain a time when someone was clearing doing something dishonest, how did you handle"

    "do you have experience cold calling, are you comfortable"

    "how are you at dealing with difficult people"

    asked to read a phone script - (the one they use for training)

    Offer (it was presented over the phone), very informal.
