    Pros

    Great employees, fun environment and inviting spaces. We laugh a lot and work with some of the most creative and smart business minded professionals in the industry.
    We have a great executive team. They are transparent, they are good to their teams, and they believe in the growth of the company as much as the growth of the individual.
    We have a great culture. Wire Stone is supportive of a healthy work/life balance and are flexible with family committments. There is a focus on wellness of the body and mind, and a real effort to connect as a team to experience true community.

    Cons

    Could benefit from having a new hire orientation to make a new person feel that they understand the company, departments, and org chart. Strong HR procedures and on boarding process would help a new employee feel more grounded in their understanding of their job, their management and their expectations.

    Senior User Experience Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boise, ID

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Wire Stone in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I contacted a friend at the company about several open positions. After a few weeks I received information about another position that the company was really looking to hire for so I applied for that position.

    I had 4 interviews, the first of which was with the hiring manager, then with the company's Chief Technology Officer, followed by a group interview with the Chief Creative Officer and Chief Strategy Officer, and finally with the company's Chief Operating Officer.

    Within about two weeks I had an offer letter, of which I attempted to negotiate a slightly higher salary, but ultimately accepted as is.

    I had worked with several 'stoners in the past at different companies and with Wire Stone on a startup software application I was building. Wire Stone had a knack for hiring (and keeping!) people that I truly admired both personally and professionally.

    Interview Questions
    • I was given a scenario where a client, a luxury home decorator with a high-end / high-touch business model, wanted a website to communicate with clients when they weren't in the showroom. I was asked how I would approach the project; what questions would I ask; and where would I start.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was slightly stressful. While the offer was in the ballpark of what I was looking for, it was actually less take home pay when benefits were factored in than what I was currently taking home. I countered and it was rejected. Despite this, I was excited about the environment, team, and projects that I would be working on so I ultimately accepted the initial offer.
