The company provides a great way to start a career in the IT industry, an industry where entry-level jobs are being outsourced left and right leaving little chance for the rest of us.
Training is provided when you sign on, and you get free housing, a free vehicle (you have to pay for gas), and pay (minimum wage) during the 8 week process.
Technical support IS provided to help you with interviews and while on-project if you need assistance with a task. (Treat support well, as they are all great people.)
There is also support with regard to travel logistics, living quarters, a two-week complementary stay at a hotel, and general advice-giving.
There is a two year agreement with a stiff repayment penalty if you jump ship early.
Many of the employee perks are internal-only.
You will be pushed hard during training, to the point you feel you're expected to really have 5+ years of experience from some of the higher-ups.
Making a mistake with interviews and soft-skills training may get you verbal and/or written warnings even if you're new to the job.
You are only given bench pay until you get your first contract, and are expected to live on savings between contracts.
There are some practices done by the company that can be considered immoral to some.
Advice to Management
The technical portion of training should last longer, which will benefit all your new hires greatly.
Cost of living adjustments should be made when a consultant takes a project in an expensive city so they don't have to find someone's bedroom to rent and live on a small portion of their salary.
Consider allowing even a baseline, minimum wage salary for on-bench consultants so they can still pay bills and not have to hope and pray they secure the next project before their savings run out.
Be a little more lenient with new hires when they make mistakes during interviews and soft-skills training, as scare tactics aren't great motivators for many.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
I applied online – interviewed at Unbounded Solutions.
Hiring process was a joke. I went in 3 times thinking that I had the job. Spoke to several "hiring managers" then after wasting my time, I was told I did not get the job and that they were going to keep looking
