    Pros

    After working at CourseTrends for almost 3 years, I felt obligated to post my opinion following some of the not so positive reviews here on Glassdoor. Based on a majority of the reviews, it seems like people expected to join a company and then not have to work very hard. CourseTrends is like every other company on this planet; they are aiming to be profitable. And one of the pieces of this is to maximize employee's output. This is not a place you can show up to work an hour late, browse the internet for 75% of your day and cut out early. While you are NOT usually expected to work more than 40 hours per week, you are expected to perform to your maximum potential while at work. I see nothing wrong with this and even see it is a major plus over most other companies. I learned so much during my time at CourseTrends that I moved to a much higher position at another company in Austin. Not only did I gain valuable experience, I gained an enormous about of confidence in my skills.

    I have absolutely zero regrets about working at CourseTrends and honestly think that the people who have left negative reviews had expectations that they could just show up at work and slide through the day.

    And in regards to salary...work hard, be ambitious and produce results and you will be greatly rewarded.

    Cons

    There could probably be a little more office culture; this would increase inter-office friendships and different departments could share their product observations to strengthen the overall product.

    Advice to Management

    I do have to admit the coffee is pretty bad...upgrade the coffee!!!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CourseTrends (Austin, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Interview started with a phone script and I had to call in and basically use their website and some material they provided to give like a 5 minute sales pitch. I was then told that I did well enough and came into meet a couple of the team members. Both were nice enough guys and went into some details about the job and the workload. I ended up turning it down the first time. Second time around was the same thing except I did the phone script with a different guy. The whole process the 2nd time took about a week.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really difficult but they realty focused on the fact that they really wanted you to have had some golf course experience even though the hiring manager had none.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate a higher base salary and day 1 medical but they declined.
