    Pros

    I love being part of a team that immediately feels like a second family. I get to help out people every day and be a part of a community that loves the same things that I do as well. I would recommend working here if you get the chance! What a great place to be.

    Cons

    The only challenges I really see are sometimes being able to handle requests that throw you for a loop from clients. But honestly its what keeps the job entertaining.I love being with this company!

    Interview Details

    My interview process was a four-fold one. The first step entailed a standard phone interview, where I was expected to talk a bit about myself, discuss previous positions held, etc. At the end of that conversation, I was given two writing assignments that involved composing a long-form, blog-style article and generating shorthand site copy. About a month after completing and submitting this assignment, I was contacted for my first in-person interview. During this meeting, I was interviewed by both the Senior Marketing Manager as well as the VP of Marketing. We discussed my past experience, familiarity with the company's website, and the writing assignments I was initially given. Finally, I was asked to come in for an additional interview, again with the Senior Marketing Manager and VP of Marketing, as well as with the company's co-owners and two other members of the Marketing Department. From start to finish, the entire process spanned roughly two months.
