    I have been working at Design At Work full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at Design At Work for 6 months and can't say enough great things about the company, my coworkers, and our clients! Everyone on the team produces great work and goes above and beyond to exceed client expectations. We work hard, but there's always time to take a break to sit down for a group lunch or grab a drink in the in-office bar after hours.

    Cons

    You must be organized to be successful here. As can be expected, sometimes deadlines are tight and you may be asked to stay late to complete a project on schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize the production team for a job well done - they deserve it!

    Public Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Design At Work (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The office manager contacted me via email the day after I submitted my resume. She had me write a biography of myself and submit it. Then she called me for a phone interview which lasted an hour. She said they'd like to schedule an interview two days from then. She said I could come late and we could "drink some wine" while I interviewed. Then I didn't hear from her for 3 or 4 days, even when I followed up twice. When she finally wrote me back she said they'd gotten a new client and they'd gotten really busy, but said we'd pick the interview process back up the following week. She gave me two (shoddy) ads they'd done for a client before and told me to make a new over the weekend. I actually made three, and sent them to her on time. Three weeks went by, no response. I tried to follow up a reasonable amount of times and got nothing. I'm almost positive the manager was told to stop speaking to me because of my salary requirements- which were not much at all considering I have 8 years worth of experience. My advice? Real professionals, don't waste your time, it appears they are looking for an inexperienced candidate who will accept less than 40k. Very unprofessional conduct.
