    Pros

    Working with a lot of smart people in a very friendly environment. There's a really family-like atmosphere and there's room to grow and develop.

    Cons

    Sometimes it might feel like things are changing a little slow, but overall, there's room to voice ideas and make changes.

    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Eriksen Translations (Brooklyn, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    My several interviews went well, and I was verbally promised a position very soon after. However, the boss noticeably started to have cold feet, asking me to come in several more times over several weeks as she waited for my references. Finally, she called me asking for me to start work, only to rescind the offer mere hours later on the pretense of a non-stellar recommendation letter. While I can't comment on the reference letter itself, my own experience interviewing with this company was unfortunate and wasted no small amount of my time.
