    Pros

    My boss was extremely flexible and understanding of my obligations as a student. She is extremely caring and everyone does a great job of helping each other out. Whenever I needed to take time off I was able to, no questions asked.

    Cons

    Job can be extremely boring at times. I ended up finding a couple of hobbies while working here...
    You pretty much have no excuse to not do well in school when you work here. As a grad student I never once did homework at home. I 4.0ed my entire degree.

    Application

    Interview

    The interview was a panel: five people, each with the same sheet of paper, asking questions from it. The questions may or may not be asked by a person with experience (like a marketing person asking questions about servers and databases).

    The interview was kind of strange and felt a bit sterile.

    Interview Questions

    • "What accomplishment are you most proud of in your life."   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The pay offered was below the industry average for this area, and far below what I already make.
