I have been working at Bayside Solutions full-time (More than a year)
I am an internal Bayside team member. Bayside is a place to learn and grow; promotion is common within the team. Morale is high with lots of love to go around. There have been a lot of changes in the past year that have made Bayside a great place to work. The management team works effectively together, and they have high expectations for each team member to be an expert in their own space. We all care about and respect one another. We trust one another to uphold Bayside’s core values: trust, accountability, consistency, integrity, and teamwork. The best part of Bayside is the teamwork that is exhibited every day. The business works because we all hold a piece of the puzzle.
Bayside provides breakfast every Friday. We celebrate once a month with cake and ice cream. The breakroom is hopping at lunchtime with people playing arcade basketball, and watching sports or playing the Xbox on two large screen TVs. We are housed on a business campus with lots of perks. Just a five minute walk from BART, our campus has a bocce ball court and putting green, onsite dry-cleaning, car wash and mobile gas service, multiple electric car charging stations, at least 20 restaurants in walking distance, a tree-lined walking path connecting buildings, a quiet sculpture garden, and my personal favorite: Food Truck Mafia every Friday.
Bayside offers 401K but no matching.
Advice to Management
Add 401K matching
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bayside Solutions (Pleasanton, CA) in June 2017.
I had two interviews with Bayside. The first one was with the Manager and the recruiter that recruited me. The second interview was a panel interview where I was able to meet the team and shadow fellow recruiters on what they do on a daily basis.
I received an offer a couple of days after and was really excited to take on a new opportunity. My mind was set UNTIL I read their offer letter after it was sent to me. While it seems like a good company to work for straight out of college, I had some experience under my belt and feel as if I dodged a bullet by not accepting.
First off, my current position is a salaried role and switching to become an hourly employee did not seem feasible to me. You do not receive 401K until you reach your 1 year and they do not match. Also, they do not provide an HSA account. Their commission structure definitely made it to where you are unable to reach it. They mentioned all these tiers where you can receive a raise once reached, but the numbers seemed unrealistic. I reached out to the manager and asked them if a recruiter reached the tiered 2 and did not bring in profit for X amount of time, would the recruiter be demoted back to tier 1? Of course the manager did not answer that. ( So the answer is Yes.) After thinking it over I reached out to my recruiter and declined my offer.
My advice to you is to do your research before the interview. I would definitely read all of the reviews on Glassdoor. They all pretty much state the same thing:
- Good if you are fresh out of college
- You are micromanaged
- HIGH turnover rate
- Poor commission structure
Hope this helps!
