-I wish I could get full-time work, but I'm working on that. -The newest supervisor over the morning shift is not the most professional or the most on top of things at times, but other than that, he's awesome. For example, I was promised a raise after my 90 day review---It's been 7 months and still no 90 day review or raise in sight, and I've asked him, others, and the people above him multiple times. So, not sure whose fault that is, but yeah, it's frustrating because every penny counts for my family right now.
Advice to Management
If you don't plan on doing 90 day reviews anymore, please make sure not to promise the new hirelings a raise (or a 90 day review for that matter) after 90 days. It makes them sad. :(

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ancestry.com (Provo, UT) in August 2015.
I had a basic introductory phone interview, then they had me do an unreasonably large programming exercise. I worked on it for an entire weekend, producing over 1500 lines of code, and it still didn't cover all of the functionality that was required. Not wanting to waste another weekend on the project, I turned in what I had. Keep in mind that this is first-level screening, before I even talked to anyone in person. I've interviewed with multiple large companies in the past, and I've never had such a large and time consuming project thrown at me as part of an interview. If they have this little respect for a person's time during the interview process, I would hate to see how they treat actual employees.
