    I have been working at Boostability full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Boostability works hard to make the work environment fun and engaging. They regularly bring in food and treats, sponsor games and contests, and throw killer company parties. The atmosphere is laid back and casual. In most cases, they are flexible with schedules to accommodate students. They do a lot of training, so it's a great place to learn skills and gain experience in the SEO field.

    Cons

    A huge percentage of the company consists of entry-level students, and the pay scale reflects that. Unfortunately, Boost tends to underpay their full time professionals as well. It's hard to consider a long term career here when the money just isn't there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Boost would do well to hire managers with real experience and training. In the two years I have worked here, I have seen at least 6 people get promoted to team lead positions who are hard workers but very inexperienced. They quickly get burned out and quit, and then the process repeats itself. A training program for first time team leads might help with that, but hiring people with some real experience and leadership skills would help even more.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Boostability.

    Interview Details

    I was sent a couple of emails to schedule an interview, the interview was awkward and difficult in that the interviewer really did not have any specific questions to ask to evaluate me on. The second interview was more of a group interview again seemed to lack direction and give no indication as to the feeling of where I stood. The third interview was much the same as the first, and I think really was just to get a feel of my personality to determine if I was a good fit.
