    Pros

    Like most things in life, you get out what you put in. They call a job work and work sucks. But you have to do something, right? If you work for Revana you want to be in the Google program because Google makes Revana treat you like a Human. Go to another program and who knows how bad it can get.

    Excellent Training - Google AdWords certified is no walk in the park. It's a couple of very hard tests. The fact that everyone in our training class passed the exam says a lot. Sitting in a class all day for 2 weeks does not mean you are going to pass the exam. We all studied at home and we worked together as a team. Every last one of us passed the exam.
    Excellent Supervisors - We did so well on the AdWords Certification Exams we blew away the management. They pulled one of the best AdWords Agency people out of their department and made them our boss. Her name was Donna and was the best supervisor anyone could ever ask for as well as a great friend to all if us. No Joke!

    Cons

    If we had done poorly on the exams or not worked hard afterwards I have no doubt we would have been thrown to the wolves. If you're not willing to go the distance you will never make it to your destination.

    Poor Supervisors - There were people that just sat around and looked stupid. If that's what you do, you get treated accordingly.
    High Standards - Google does not want tuna with good taste, they want tuna that tastes good. If you're not all that smart. . . Need I say anything else?

    Advice to Management

    Make Donna P. the CEO of your company and get past the boiler room mentality. Just because education is treated as an after thought in Arizona does not mean you should do the same thing.

    The way you treat others is the only true measure of how you feel about yourself. Working with Google was the best thing you folks ever did.

    You should let Donna run the whole the company.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Revana.

    Interview

    I've applied online the next day after meeting Revana-Tempe recruiter
    on Career Connectors event in Phoenix (03/04/2015).

    I was told that Revana has 200 openings.

    After two or three phone conversations with different Revana recruiting persons
    and passing 1 hour (100 questions) online assessment I was invited for face-to-face interview
    with IT manager at 9:00 AM sharp (actually they asked to come 10 minutes earlier).

    After waiting 10 more minutes (@ 9:10 AM), I was finally invited inside and told that IT Manager could not meet with me because they decided to fill that IT position internally;
    and I am obviously unacceptable for phone sales position due to my heavy foreign (Russian) accent.

    I had no choice as to leave after learning that my information will be kept on file.
