I worked at Booster Enterprises full-time (more than an year)Pros
The company focuses on developing their people and seeks to develop them. Worked with some incredible people and was stretched. Gained invaluable work experience specifically in customer relations, sales, and management.Cons
For a small team the expectation is to travel quite a bit. First year pay is not good. If you make it through the first year the pay jumps up, but you really need to get promoted a time or two before you can make a decent salary.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep the culture. Pay qualified first year employees better.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Booster Enterprises in April 2014.Interview Details
The initial contact came from an hourly employee of the company who knew one of my family members. It was explained to me that new hires are found in a grassroots manner, allowing current employees to explain more about Booster and to give access to job openings.
I received a phone call from the HR director, who asked about me and my college experienced. My portfolio had already been reviewed. I had to fill out personality surveys and provided 3 references, who were expected to fill out a similar survey about me.
I was then asked to come to Alpharetta for a 1:1 interview at the "home office". I drove 6 hours to the office, and interviewed with my potential direct supervisor. He seemed uncomfortable asking me interview questions, which made it hard for me to relate to him and connect personally. I was then given as much time as I needed to create a mock poster for one of their current marketing campaigns. I was provided about half of the artwork, and was told that it was an exercise in document layout. "Take as much time as you need, make the final piece print-ready." was the instruction I was given. I took about 1 hour from concept to final PDF, and was then promptly thanked and shown the door. At this point I assumed that I bombed the interview because the whole experience was very awkward.
I then had a follow-up phone interview with the director of the department, where we talked more about my work experience and personality. I was given a freelance project that took about 5 hours at the rate of my choosing. At this point I was told that I was competing against one other applicant. It was about a week after this call that I was told that I was not getting the job.
Overall, not a bad process. I would have like the job, but I don't feel robbed of the position. The work seemed fun and engaging, and the employees seemed like really fun and energetic individuals and teams.Interview Questions
