    I have been working at Geeks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Result driven. Where I worked for before Geeks, devs often made their decisions based on what looks good on CV, which I always had a moral problem with. At Geeks though, the culture, tech and everything is driven by what will create the software the client wants sooner, better and faster. I think we as an industry should focus more on that.

    Cons

    If you're looking for horizontal skills development, or would like every project's stack to be different, you will be disappointed because most projects are .NET.

    Junior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Geeks (London, England (UK)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Submitted CV ion line got time and was notified that they wanted to speak to me.

    I really should have checked glassdoor before applying for this job.

    waited a week and a half for a basic 3 minute 2 question telephone interview, the person 20 minutes late to call me, sounded so uninterested and junior. To put it in perspective my last telephone interview was 30 to 40 minutes with several follow up questions. The questions were very basic and i answered them well, so i have a feeling that they had already decided i was not a right fit but decided to call me anyway.

    Im not the first person to make these observations and i have a feeling i wont be the last , they really need to fix their employment process
