    I have been working at Plex Systems, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)


    A company that's growing exponentially, forward-thinking management, empowering environment, excellent benefits, great culture, good people and top-notch product that is in high demand. No one is looking over your shoulder and micro-managing at Plex. Employees are treated with respect and given the freedom to devise their own solutions. You come as you please, you work as you please, and you leave as you please. As long as you're intelligent and do quality work on time, this is one of the best--if not the best--places to work in Michigan and in the U.S.


    Better salary for entry-level positions, but there are opportunities for bonuses and raises throughout the year. Like any other job you have to prove yourself before you deserve to make the big bucks.

    Easy Interview


    Very laid back interview. I was fresh out of college and they didn't expect me to know everything I needed to do my job right off the bat. What they cared about was whether I had the capacity to learn from my colleagues and think on my feet. First step was a Phone interview to exchange information. The next step was a on-sight interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Couple logic questions as well as a basic sql test as I indicated I had some previous sql experience in my application.   Answer Question
