    I have been working at Austin Fraser full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When the going gets tough, the tough get going, right? Well I'm really proud of all the decisions the Senior Leadership team has made during this unprecedented time. They have championed their people, improved employer branding, and maintained an excellent service level to our clients.

    Cons

    We had to furlough a few people and eliminate a very limited amount of positions which is never fun, however it was the right call at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and get us back to the new "normal"!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Austin Fraser (Austin, TX) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen followed by another phone interview with hiring manager. Next step was an in-person interview. I met with three people. Interview was 1.5 hrs and was very in depth. They wanted to know every detail about my past experience and motivators. They told me about the job and then I had to do a Role Play where I had to ask questions and "sell" the perfect candidate. This was followed by an "off the cuff" exercise which was easy. I was then brought in the following day to meet with another person who asked me some more questions and a lot of the same ones. My feedback was that I didn't explain my goals or work motivators well enough... which I thought I did.
