    I have been working at ComPsych full-time (Less than a year)


    The office environment is very supportive. All of my coworkers are helpful and awesome. The building itself is beautiful and there are lots of perks just being here, in the loop everyday. I enjoy my work and there are lots of opportunities for advancement and specialized training. Mondays are fun (free bagels etc), There are snacks on tap and my salary is comparable/higher than my cohort of graduates. This is my favorite job ever!


    The hiring process was involved and took months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at ComPsych (Chicago, IL).


    Applied online, was emailed shortly after asking for a phone interview with HR (took about 30 minutes). HR rep was friendly and we mostly went over my resume. They wanted to talk some more, and I had a phone interview with the manager a week or two later. I was asked standard interview questions (why are you interested, etc.). I then had an in-person interview with the HR rep, the manager, and the people I'd be working with. There was a multiple choice problem solving test (which wasn't too hard), an AP style test, and a brief assessment of your web design preferences (they show you different design options and you just have to explain why you pick the one you do). Before the interview, I also had to write a brief article and come up with a game concept. I got a call a couple of weeks later to say I did not get the job. Everyone at the company was very nice - I don't really have any complaints to speak of.

    My advice: Make sure you do your company research and come up with some strong questions to ask the interviewers.
