I have been working at ADESA full-time (More than a year)
Great people - friendly, helpful, and fun atmosphere.
Good community outreach and support for employee volunteerism - 1 paid day per year to serve in the community (each employee chooses their activity and place to serve).
Company provides regular "fun" activities - pitch-ins, giveaways, contests, cornhole tournament, ugly sweater contest, Halloween costume contest and trick or treating for kids, etc.
Nice pay and benefits...probably just a smidge above average. Smidge.
Excellent work/life balance with remote work option as needed, no weekends, few late nights. (Speaking for my position anyway, which is salaried. They don't abuse salaried folks. If you work yourself to death, that's by your choice not by their force.)
Great location in the northern suburbs.
No annual bonus! First company I've worked for in my professional career (18 yrs!) that does not have an annual bonus program. My salary is good, as noted above...but it was good at the other companies I've worked for too, and they offered bonus.
Advice to Management
When talent hears - or perceives to hear - certain talk coming down from upper management, they walk. We're not interchangeable "resources". The first hint that we don't actually have a choice or say in the work we do, buh-bye. Those of us who aren't newbies have heard it before, and each time we hear it again we tolerate it less and leave the company faster. It is not hard for talented, high performing people to get a new job in the Indy IT market.
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ADESA (Carmel, IN).
Very positive interview experience. Very informative. They ask some pretty direct questions, but they will also answer just about any question you ask. Pretty open and honest atmosphere. They take some time to decide in the hiring process, on boarding takes a bit of time as well. My experience was around 30 days from interview to offer, and another 21 days to start date. Very nice and flexible recruiting staff that does a good job explaining what all the steps and keeping in touch along the way. They have a new system and on boarding is all automated and online. Be prepared for lots of emails during this process. I swear that system emails you about six tasks, you complete them, and it emails you about seven more.
