    I have been working at Catamaran full-time for more than a year


    Low-touch management allows for complete freedom of day-to-day activities. Company is growing, and the industry is always changing providing new challenges. Lots of opportunities to get involved with other teams and take on more responsibilities.


    Work-life balance. Long hours (50-60 per week). Lots of 'fire drills' since the company is growing so fast; hard to bring new employees up to speed fast enough. Making requests for any sort of IT access or software is a cumbersome process worth noting.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Catamaran in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went through a staffing agency Catamaran was a client of theirs. After taking tests and interviewing with them, my recruiter set my interview with Catamaran in the middle of August of 2013. The Catamaran supervisor that conducted the interview asked me the typical behavioral question, as well as what makes me want this position. I got the offer then and there, filled out paperwork, and took my drug test in the same day. The training class was set for September 2013.
