    I have been working at Granite Telecommunications full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The place is a good stepping stone... put it up against other entry level jobs like state St or blue cross and granite pays a little better... plus the leadership at least knows you and there's opportunity to move up... you may be a cog in the machine but at least they know your model number

    Cons

    They put waaay too much faith in this intelligence test they give out after the interview... The company also takes somewhat more of an active role in your health... However the food in the cafe is still horrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are so many meetings... we absolutely don't need to waste as much time as we are currently

    Positive Outlook

    Interview Details

    I found the job originally from Indeed.com, and it was peculiar right from the start. The job description was a vague "Customer Service" entry and I figured I would go for it since I'm a recent University graduate and was hoping for some fresh hands-on experiences helping people with their needs over the phone. It never asked for a cover letter nor a detailed description of you, just your name, address, email account and telephone number.

    I was hired via a Temp Agency known as American Personnel. They responded a day after I sent my Indeed.com request, which I found to be very kind of them. The interview went very smoothly, and I felt as if I had the sufficient skills to meet the needs of the temp-to-hire job that he described. It really got my hopes up: the prospect of having a stable job with good pay, hopes of rising in the company, and a hands-on environment where I could help people.

    Man, was I wrong. When I arrived home from my interview I started reading Glassdoor's former employee reviews. My goodness, my heart literally plummeted. I never felt so cheated in my life, God be my witness. My father and I felt it was strange that the Temp agency would ask me to fill out my W-4 and I-9 forms, detailing my incredibly personal economic and social data (including my social security number). People talk about having their credit card numbers stolen online, but man I never thought there were actual businesses working side-by-side fishing for recent university graduates for cheap labor.

    Please. Do not look into these businesses. Save yourself the time and energy and look at actual, modern, honest business practices. Because, truth be told, American Personnel and Granite Communications are certainly not doing the right thing.
