    I worked at Globaltranz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a young company with a lot of room for growth, and therefor opportunity. Compensation was enough to keep me satisfied. Very laidback, yet energetic environment. If you're able to stay long enough, you do inevitably build relationships with the whole office as everybody's job depends on everybody else and staying connected to the entire office builds relationships. There are office games and managers try to lighten the mood. And they were still trying to cater every other Friday, even as they expanded, which was nice (thank you!). Both locations are right off the freeway and were a convenient commute. I adjusted to the early scheduled and really enjoyed my afternoons which I never had. And, I sure did learn quite a bit about an industry that I had zero knowledge in before GTZ.

    Cons

    I was tempted to get really negative here, but the truth of the matter is this. The place isn't evil, but it is flawed. Once you're there, you learn very quickly what to do and how to do it, and if not, you get left behind; plain and simple. It requires quite a bit of mental stamina and an ability to deal with/handle daily negative customer issues. Expanding your client list while maintaining your current one all the while trying to meet a quota that never ends was too exhausting for my brain, my body and my soul. They hire many people every month with the Darwinian expectation that maybe 10% of each recruiting class will make it. You can make good money if you get lucky and/or drink tons of caffeine!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure any advice would be taken or even be necessary. From all indications, GTZ is growing and fast. The culture chews up and spits out many good people, but when your business is growing, why fix something that isn't broken? At this rate, the best job security at GTZ is in HR/Recruiting! You would think that, with all the money they spend on hiring people, that it would be frustrating to see the majority of them quit or get terminated within a couple months.

    Claims Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Prescott Valley, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Prescott Valley, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Globaltranz in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was connected to the supervisor before I was offered a job as a claims analyst. She was looking for someone to take over a temporary position while another worker was on maternity. The process was very fast and easy, nothing was done online. The interview was simple and she asked me a few basic questions, for instance my work history, my education level, where I saw myself in 5 years, and so forth.
