I have been working at Kotis Design full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
There's a career path in place clearly showing how people can grow financially and develop areas of expertise. Promotions happen often and people who work hard are rewarded. The team is very collaborative and people really care about helping each other out.
The corporate culture is amazing and there's fun team and company wide events. I have yet to find another company that does a holiday party like Kotis does.
The account management position almost forces a work life balance. You never have to answer an email or handle a phone call on the weekends or late at night.
If you are processing a lot of business, you can make a lot of money with bonuses. Top performers on the Account Management Team have a really competitive pay for the position they're doing.Cons
It's a very fast paced environment and the company prides themselves at constantly evolving and changing at all levels. If you're someone who doesn't do well with change, this probably won't be a great fit.
Efficiency is huge in the Account Coordinator/Manager position. If you don't have good experience handling a position with a high volume of work OR skill-sets in place to stay super organized and efficient, you will struggle early on.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Stay inspiring - people can tell you genuinely care about the direction of the company and the work everyone is doing. It's refreshing.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Kotis Design in June 2012.Interview Details
The first interview was over the phone, it was more of a screening than an interview. They ask about your past work experience.
The initial interview had a lot of scenario questions. The manager seemed to expect for you to already know a lot about the products that they currently offer.
One scenario question was name ten products that you would offer a customer who are hosting a charity event for the sorority.
Another was, name five things that a customer would be upset about when receiving a product that did not meet their expectations.
The third one was an upset customer scenario and the interviewer asked for you to type up a response in reply to the customer on a laptop 'as if you are sending an e-mail to the customer'. The only problem is the interviewer did not provide full details of the scenario so it was hard to respond.
The interviewer also asked what you hope to make salary wise within one year and three years. * I would say don't be too honest with answering this question because if you tell them what your ideal pay would be it would put them off.
I honestly think that this was the strangest interview due to some of the questions. The best way to answer the interview questions is if you knew how they processed orders and what products they offer. I hope this helps any possible candidates!No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
