    I have been working at Granite Telecommunications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    accessibility of higher ups. At Granite I have had the support to take my ideas and run with them. Our CEO Rob Hale is regularly available for anything you need and extremely generous

    Cons

    Its not an easy job. You have the opportunity to make lots of money if you work hard but to many people coast on the salary and get left behind

    Advice to Management

    Reward the sales process not just the finished sale

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (Burlington, MA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Sent e-mail to manager at Granite, this was forwarded to temp agency (Insight Global). Recieved phonecall following day from agency, consisted of basic questions and review of job requirements and personal qualifications/experience. Set up interview with staffing recruiter for the following day. Discussed further in detail about the job, was told I was going to be sent on interview @ Granite for the position, and would be in touch within a few days. Before leaving, was sat at a computer and told to fill out my profile with the agency. Sent a follow-up e-mail to the recruiter following the interview, thanking for time and looking forward to hearing back regarding interview date and time details. Recruiter never called back or e-mailed, it has been over 2 weeks. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! Granite should look into going through another temp agency.
