    Pros

    I have found there to be so many pros to working for their company. This is a growing company and there are a few reasons why. First, I believe in our product offering. My job affords me the ability to speak with our customers every day. Our products and services our customers receive have are wide-ranging and are of the utmost quality. Second, service is a major tenant of this organization. The service we provide to our customers I believe is second to none. The company puts forth the extra effort to make sure our customers are successful and strive to put the customers as the number 1 priority. I believe that is one of the main reasons we continue to grow. The company also does a tremendous job of serving the community here in Austin. There is a steady flow of service opportunities that employees can participate in during work hours. The company also offers yearly one-week paid service trips overseas where employees go help non-profits in foreign countries and serve the local community.

    On a personal note, the company has truly treated me like family and has been a blessing to my family. In the last couple months, I have had a medical emergency, rushed surgery and will be very soon welcoming a baby into my family. The company has been extremely flexible and generous with my time, allowing me to take the time off needed to recover and heal, work from home if necessary and have encouraged me to take time off when the baby arrives so I can spend time taking care of my wife and our daughter. Honestly, the way they have treated me is priceless and I would recommend this company to anyone.

    I have already referred a former co-worker here who has since been hired and would do so again if the opportunity arose.

    Cons

    I hope in the future there is an option to do some type of 401k

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, I cannot say enough about my supervisor, Alan and the management team. They have welcomed me with open arms and treated me like family. I couldn't ask for more than that.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CourseTrends in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.   View Answer
