I have been working at GPS Staffing full-time
Our company was acquired by investment partners who are genuine. Our company has gone from stuffy, controlled and behind the times to fun, laid back, manage yourself but let’s get stuff done environment. We have an awesome team and we enjoy working together. We have nice new modern furniture including stand up desks and nice new computers. Although our company has a long history, we are now more like a startup in the sense that everyone has a chance to make a difference, everyone has power to make changes and everyone can move up within the company. Our new owners would like to take our company to an entirely new level of success in the thriving Colorado market.
Understanding and adapting to new leadership. Ongoing adjusting to the evolution of the company.
The process took a week. I interviewed at GPS Staffing (Denver, CO) in May 2016.
I had a really great phone interview and then was brought in for an in person interview. That process was very lengthy - I was given a test to see what knowledge I had of tech terms, etc., and then interviewed with the same person I met on the phone. All of that was fine, but then I met the owner of the company. I can honestly say I have never had a more uncomfortable interview experience. I was talked down to, and told that if I were to make it in the industry I would have to work harder than everyone else because it is a male dominated field. Everything in the office was beige and boring - and I didn't see anyone who looked like they enjoyed their jobs. It kind of reminded me of the movie Office Space, which in itself is a huge red flag. When I left, the owner didn't even bother to pronounce my name right (it's an easy name), so I think that was all I needed to know about the company to make an informed decision.
