    Pros

    If you brown nose well, this is the place for you.
    The pay.
    Geez I have a 20 word minimum with nothing to say.

    Cons

    Just about everything.
    Their contract is ridiculous. Wait until you read it.
    I have to give them one star when it's not deserved.
    The offer was fantastic, but the job description didn't last. Once they learn that you are multi-talented, they will add more work on you. They will butter you up and compliment your for your talents, giving you the warm and fuzzies. Then when you can't handle the workload, they give you a lecture about doing what you have to do to keep up since you are a salary employee, but no over time pay, even though they treat you like an hourly employee when giving vacation time. I don't mind working 60 hours a week, but don't keep piling the work on me if it takes me 60 hours to keep my head above water. And even though you work 60 hours a week, they cut you no slack when it comes to vacation time and they give you Comp Time either. When you mention the over time, the remind you that the OT was not approved. I was absolutely miserable at this job. They are the absolute worst company I have ever worked for. I dreaded going into the office. After I quit, I had to take anti-depressants just to remember that it was not me that was terrible, it was the company. This is no joke. Heed

    Advice to Management

    You have a great product that is highly over priced. Sell the company to someone who will care for its employees and customers.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Givex in January 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who reviewed my suitability for the position in order to submit my resume. I then spoke with the HR person at the company who went over a few basic questions, such as availability and my status. The recruiter then informed me that they wanted me to come in for a face to face interview. I picked a date and time from an online calendar. I had to complete 2 sets of questionnaires: one was more general and the other PM skills related with situational scenarios. Following the interview I was following up with the recruiter. I then spoke one more time with the recruiter who wanted to ascertain my interest and go over the salary with me. They then presented the offer letter, which I signed and return back to them.
