    I worked at Greystone Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is long overdue, but I wanted to give this after some time and experiences had passed.

    I worked here for nearly 4 years, in Denver, and then in Boulder. I started out like many, very green. As soon as I started, I quickly realized the amount of work I had ahead of me, but found the amount of support and encouragement was much greater despite the office change.

    The job itself has its ups and downs just like any job, but what separates Greystone from the pack is the emphasis leadership puts on culture. Leadership from the top down focuses on authentic feedback from you as an employee. You will find you can always discuss things with your manager, and they will work with you to try come up with a solution. Leadership has your back, they want you to succeed if you want to. Their feedback isn't intended to back you into a corner, but help you get to the next level. (RARE!)

    Time off is excellent, and much appreciated for what the industry has to offer.

    Frankly, this was the absolute best place I have ever worked in. This sounds a bit fluffed, but it's the honest truth.

    Matt S. and Bobby S. are arguably Jedi Knights. Hats off to both of you, not a chance I would be where I am without you gentlemen. ......Thank You...Very Much. This company will forever hold a special spot in my heart throughout my life. Maybe when the timing is right our paths will cross again. I hope.

    Cons

    "Areas of Focus:" ;)

    -Health benefits could use some improvement for the price. (non High Deductible)
    -MSP world appears to pose internal growth challenges. You have culture, mastering this would be unprecedented (in my opinion)

    Advice to Management

    Mentorship methodology with genuine focus on your culture and employees well-being is an art that you all have done so well.

    IT Technical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Greystone Technology (Boulder, CO) in July 2019.

    Interview

    The hiring process is extremely adverse for a general IT Technical Engineer role. Greystone had a 2 part interview (Boulder then Denver). I attended both and had bad vibes at both interviews. First, the workplace environment did not spell a corporate business but yet a small business who offered a job not a career. It was not your typical nice building but instead a building at the end if a cul- de-sac next to a beer business. It seemed like a really dark and dingy place. The interview process seemed unplanned and rushed. The questions were marginally out of context when it came to IT networking.

    The 2nd interview was more of a test of your character and interpersonal skills. If the interview was about punctuality, then Mr. Jesse Armstrong would fail. As the interviewer, he was late and seemed judgmental about the interviewee's lifestyle of parenting. Mr. Jesse Armstrong would asked the interviewee if they had children of which the interviewee replied, "yes". Mr. Jesse Armstrong quickly replied, "well I don't" laughing with a sense of relief which conveyed to me Mr. Jesse Armstrong was against any job candidate who possessed children and wanted to work in this job role.

    Not a good vibe! Last, Mr. Jesse Armstrong mentioned hiring another manager and there could possibly be a third in-person interview for this 60k job. I am glad I decided to interview for research to advocate for job seekers on the do's and dont's of job tolerance/acceptance. The IT industry is huge & full of all sorts of opportunities. Many IT professionals (entry level - advance) have so much more availability of opportunities within the salaried/wage W2 employment option. My advice is to become part of a network & stay connected to generate more income for your IT support. Greystone offered 60K for this IT Technician role but, I was able to land an BSIT degree candidate with a Security+, A+, & Network+ certs into a 90k job. Greystone Technology, shape up & lead by example!
