I worked at DeVries Global full-time
I worked at DVG for about 4 years and I have to say it was a great experience.
- Friendly staff
- Awesome perks like summer Fridays, early closing before big holidays, unrivaled paid time off, good work/life balance (yes, sometimes you'll have to work long hours but that comes in waves), free coffee bar in the building, in-office holiday celebrations, free dinner/cab if you work past 8pm, and the list goes on
- Smart staff
- Great clients
- Nice people
- There's always leftover food
- Manicure Mondays
My biggest caveat is that pay can be pretty low. Also, sometimes teams are small and you're moved around different accounts, which isn't always great but you'll find that at any agency.
Advice to Management
Pay should be a bit higher considering the cost of living in the city
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DeVries Global (Poughkeepsie, NY) in September 2016.
Two DeVries employees came to my school to look at resumes and work on interview skills. Both were women, one was in PR and the other was from HR. They were both very nice and where I thought they would conduct the interview like a real job interview, I found they didn't have enough questions to ask me so there were a few strange pauses. It was pretty laid back and they told me once I had a bit more experience I should apply to be an intern.
