    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Fun and exciting product to represent. Very lean company who is always pushing the limits of what can be done with LED displays

    Cons

    Company offers below average pay at best. There tends to be little room for growth. Not always open to new ways of going about daily responsibilities

    Interview

    They are very GPA based when choosing a student employee. I had a 3.2 and they continually got on me during reviews to improve it.

Basically you need to tell them you are a hard worker and are willing to put in the hours to get the job done. Organization is key. Make sure you let them know you intend to stay with the company upon graduation.

    Negotiation

    Wage was not negotiable, can get increases based off of classes taken and passed.
