    I worked at Austin Focus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really did love working here. It is an awesome opportunity! Within 9-12 months you can be running your own marketing company. It is a management training program that teaches you from the ground event level all the way up to executive management level. Not only did I learn skill sets that pertained to marketing. I also learned all kinds of skills for business in general.
    Its also a very positive environment. Everyone who works there always comes in a very good mood and willing to do whatever it takes to get you to reach your both professional and personal goals. I not only consider the people I worked with as former co-workers I consider them personal friends.

    I also got to travel to Phoenix for 2 weeks to learn from the one of the best of the best in the business. (that trip was completely paid for by the owner Kati).
    The owner and everyone invest a lot of time and money their employees. And it shows.

    I personally had to leave because realized that my personal and professional goals could not simultaneously be reached while going through this program. But I highly recommend the program for anyone who can put in the time and work.

    Cons

    I wouldn't say this is a really a con but it is a lot of time and work. They cram 5 years of management training into 9 months. So if someone does not have a strong drive or good work ethic it might not be the right opportunity for them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Austin Focus.

    Interview

    After reviewing your application they will call you and ask basic questions and (maybe) schedule an interview in the office. That is followed by three rounds of interviews: 1) get-to-know interview at office; 2) meet at an event where a second person will interview you and inform you about the company; 3) at the office you will take a short quiz about what you learned at the event from interviewer AND share more info about yourself.
