Granite Cares

Our corporate culture embraces a community of diversity, and our approach to giving back to the community supports a wide range of causes and organizations. Granite is the flagship sponsor of the Massachusetts Soldiers Legacy Fund, a non-profit organization that seeks to honor fallen US servicemen and women who had resided in Massachusetts by paying for their children's college education and other educational expenses.

Granite employees participate in various charitable and community outreach activities including, "jeans days," on which employees can wear jeans and t-shirts with a $3 donation. In 2011, those donations resulted in 66 charities receiving more than $175,000. During the holiday season, Granite employees annually provide Christmas trees and accompanying holiday gifts to ten local families in need.

Our marquee charitable event is our annual Granite Day when Granite hosts a free day of fun and food for local community families, while raising money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. In June 2011, Granite celebrated its 9th annual Granite Day and raised over $202,000 for Dana Farber.

Granite has been consistently recognized for its charitable giving by, among others, the Boston Business Journal, which has listed Granite among the area's top corporate contributors in each of the past several years.

    I have been working at Granite Telecommunications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked at Granite going on 2 years now and I couldn't be happier. Granite has a team atmosphere and is a very philanthropic company; the two going hand in hand. Granite offers employees interesting work in a cutting-edge industry with a clear path to advancement as well as good compensation (including regular company-wide bonuses tied to how well Granite is doing . . . everyone shares in Granite's consistent and continuing success) and good benefits (e.g., 401K plan and healthcare). Granite provides a much better work life balance than I have had in my prior jobs, typically Monday through Friday and only seldomly needing to work nights or weekends (a handful of weekend days in 2 years), with a generous number of paid time off (PTO) days from day one. I plan to stay at Granite for a long time and continue to contribute to and benefit from its continuing track record of impressive growth.

    Cons

    None (except for the commute . . . I should live closer to work or live closer to a T stop, Granite is within walking distance to the redline and a lot of employees commute using the T).

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management would be to keep at it; continue to work to grow the company and continue to listen to Granite's employees and share the company's growth with all of the employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (West Palm Beach, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I have a friend who works in sales there. He connected me with their internal recruiter who set up interviews with management. I believe their first step is to have you go through a CTS sales profile. If you qualify from there then they gear their interviews in a two step process. The first is with the sales managers. They then converse on their side and if they like you, they bring you back to sit down with the office VP and what they call a job shadow. You spend some time with a current employee to see the tasks they do on a daily basis. After the 2nd visit, thats is when they either make you an offer or they decline.

    Interview Questions

    • Whats your story? What are some big challenges you have had to overcome? Would you change they way you handled them the second time around? Strengths? Weaknesses? Why should I hire you versus the guy I interviewed yesterday? Many others, each conversation I have had with them was around 45 minutes in length   Answer Question
