    Pros

    After working at Windstone even the worse job will be heaven.

    Cons

    Working in this place is almost surreal, nothing is even close to normal.
    The projects arrive mysteriously and as mysteriously stop. All of them. Nothing has ever been built.
    Cyclically some is brought up again, made a few changing and after a couple of months/a year comes back to sleep.
    The quality of projects is terrifying, is probably good that none has ever been built.
    The working conditions are a nightmare: 48h per week, with the lowest salaries. The politic is to hire only foreigners because he knows how hard it is to find job without a good German knowledge.
    They will try to give a freelance contract, but as a matter fact you ll end up having to respect the employees rules and no right to anything (Scheinselbständigkeit).
    Even if you ll get an employee contract your life wont be easier.
    Weekend, Christmas, holidays..Forget about everything, he expects you to work no stop.
    The turnover is crazy, none of the architects survive more than 6-8 months.
    The administration is a disaster: salaries arrive incredibly late, very often wrong, do never let down your guard cause their purpose is to screw you in every possible way.
    Accounting is another funny story..no accountant last more than a couple of months.....
    Honestly do not waist your time in this company.
    Study German of do anything else.
    This place is a dark hole that will drain your energy, consume your time and will lead you absolutely nowhere (except possibly for the doctor)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at WindStone International (Berlin (Germany)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Die erste E-Mail vom Unternehmensadministrator fragte, wann ich als Freiberufler anfangen könnte. Dies geschah innerhalb von 24 Stunden der Bewerbung. Dann, nach vier Wochen, der CEO und der Geschäftsleiter interviewten mich. Die folgenden Punkte sollten über die Firma beachtet werden:

    1. Das Unternehmen hat keine aufgebaute Projekte auf der Website des Unternehmens übersichtlich aufgelistet.

    2. Es scheint eine hohe Fluktuation der Mitarbeiter zu geben

    3. Das Büro ist in Deutschland, aber alle Projekte sind im Nahen Osten

    4. Das Unternehmen kann eine "Freiberufler"-Stelle als die höchste Stelle des Büros anbieten.

    The initial email from the company administration officer asked when I could join as a freelancer. This happened within 24 hours of the application. Then four weeks went by and the CEO and the Head of Business interviewed me.
    The following points should be noted about the company:
    1. The company does not have any built projects clearly listed on the company website.
    2. There seems to be a high turnover of employees
    3. The office is in Germany but all the projects are in the Middle East
    4. The company may propose a "freelancer" position for the highest position of the office.

    Interview Questions

    • Nach etwa fünf Minuten Interview, wurde ich plötzlich gefragt: "Aus welchem ​​Land ist Ihr Pass?"   After about five minutes into the interview, I was asked abruptly, "From which country is your passport from?"   1 Answer
