    I have been working at GDS Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at GDS for about five and a half years. It has been a great experience for both myself and my family. It is a challenging, fast paced, energetic environment, working with people I not only consider my colleagues but my friends as well. We work hard and we play hard!

    Cons

    It's not for everyone. Expectations are high, performance is a must. There is a lot of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be a bit more selective in hiring process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GDS Group.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview with recruiting. Did an in person interview and then met with the Sales Manager. Seems like a great growth opportunity and fun culture for the right person. Recruiter was very thorough and nice, as was the team manager.
