    I have been working at All Star Directories, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    The vertical is finally bottoming out. The company remains profitable. There are plenty of opportunities to improve the business. Having latitude to work on them is what stokes.

    Perks: coffee/tea, fresh fruit, quirky missives and events from the cheeky "Mandatory Fun Committee", and a locker room for post-lunchtime workout shower.

    People are generally amicable.

    The CEO seems like a good guy. He has made a couple of tough calls promptly. Ex: in November, a couple of people with toxic work ethos + dragging down others were let go.

    Cons

    No shared, inter-departmental urgency. It takes too long to track down the owner of something or drive a decision.

    A few people not pulling their weight or plain clueless.

    Recent, voluntary turnover has been a problem.

    The open cube pit hinders productivity. People don't realize how much their hallway conversations disrupt.

    Software Development Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at All Star Directories, Inc..

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a local recruiting company for a position at ASD. The recruiters seemed nice but looks like they were blissfully unaware of the job requirements. No phone screen, they just asked me to come in for in person interviews. After getting there, the first interview was by a SDET and SDE. Both were bored out of their minds and kept looking at the watch repeatedly. In the second interview, they asked me "What according to you is this job position about?". I told them that from what I know ASD is looking for someone with strong Java and DB skills. The 2 SDE's then tell me that is not true and that they are looking for a UI developer, cut the interview short and walk me outside.

    I have had my fair share of interviews to know that before you call in a candidate, you are supposed to read their resume. My resume in no way stated that I was a UI developer. So thanks for wasting my time. Worst interviewing experience ever!
