    Pros

    An amazing legacy which has helped the company grow nationwide. The company has a "family" feel to it which probably extends from it being a family owned business. The culture is wonderful - very competitive but extremely supportive. I have never seen sales people be so helpful to each other while still remaining so competitive.

    Company is willing to invest in its people and infrastructure. It is nice to see the company want to remain private while doing so. You always feel supported from every level of the organization. There is a very big "team" mentality which is refreshing.

    Cons

    Nothing big enough to warrant a post

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Balani (Chicago, IL) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I received and email shortly after applying to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty standard afterwards I was asked to take an assessment that was made up in 3 parts the first one was 270 question to determine your personality. The second set was situational questions and the third were random math questions. This process is very time consuming. They clearly don’t feel competent hiring people on their own judgement. This process felt very icky and then I received a rude email that my score was far from the score needed to get hired. You would think someone’s skill set would be far more important than a test score.
