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


    Great environment. Since day one of the hiring process Gainsco has been awesome. From the initial phone interview to the follow up interview with my current manager, everyone has been friendly and helpful along the way. This is a great company with a lot of opportunity for advancement as long as you come in and work hard. I could not be happier and I just wish I would have come to Gainsco sooner!


    No cons that I have experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and let's make 2018 another profitable and fantastic year here at Gainsco!

    The process took a week. I interviewed at GAINSCO.


    The recruiter was very upfront and prompt which is something I appreciate. We spoke briefly over the phone and scheduled an in person interview. It was on of the best interviews I've ever experienced. The ladies were very informative. We laughed and had a great time but they are very sharp and definitely about business. I almost didn't want to leave. The atmosphere is very laid-back, everyone is smiling yet working hard. This is the ideal work environment. They called a few hours after leaving the interview with an offer. Ofcourse, I accepted.
