I worked at ESET part-time (More than a year)
The human resources department is amazing at organizing company events like volunteer events, department meetings, fitness, and all hands meetings. The company culture is by far the best I've been able to experience of all my former (and current) employers. Everyone is has a great attitude, management values your input/opinions, and it is like a family. Also, their breakroom/gym is insanely large! It takes up half a whole floor! This has been the best employer I've ever had the honor of working for and from. I've not only capitalized on skills I had, but ESET helped me grow and identify other skills I didn't know I had.
I can't submit this unless I have at least 5 words. So there.
Advice to Management
I applied online. I interviewed at ESET (San Diego, CA) in August 2016.
I was emailed by a Sr Recruiter of a position, the first question was would I be available on a Friday afternoon for a "conference" interview virtually, which I advised I would be. I am in different time zone, but the job was work from home, as I found out from the recruiter via email. No phone conversation took place, but i thought about it and I am definitely qualified for the position, so was interested. Apparently if they are interested an offer is made, then would fly to San Diego for 2 weeks of training. The salary was good, so I waited until that Friday, and at 3pm PST (6pm EST) followed the link and found no one there on a "conference". I must also state, the email had stated it was required for the candidates to have camera on their laptop or mobile device, so I figured while taking the test, they may want to monitor to ensure we were not online getting the answers. I was very disappointed as I dressed appropriately, and at the date/time given found no "conference" taking place. I emailed the recruiter five minutes prior to the interview, been 2 weeks now and he never had the courtesy to let me know if there were any issues, or anything.
I held up my end of the agreement and took the 58 question test which 60 minutes is given to complete the test. As of today, I have never heard back from him. I took time out of my schedule to show up, take the exam, and not to be repetitive, no follow-up email, never a phone call. nothing. Sadly, I wish I could say this is the only company I have encountered this type of behavior from. it is becoming pretty commonplace for some companies to never follow-up, in this particular case it is a technical customer service role? Really, you treat potential employees like this, I would wonder how they treat actual employees, or the customers. As I always say, fortunately I have nearly 20 years of IT experience and industry certifications, instead of bothering to email the recruiter back, I chalk it up to experience. I would probably let him know I would not consider working for them if he ever did contact me again. There are numerous decent companies looking for a hard-working employee. As a job candidate, i do not tolerate this type of behavior, professionally or personally.
