    I worked at Group 1200 Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent manager in our department. He was understanding, responsive with valuable feedback and not a micro-manager. The fellow employees in my department I still consider good friends. I had an excellent experience being pregnant and taking maternity leave with the Group 1200. My supervisor tapered off my work load as my due date approached and eased me back in when I returned and everything was relaxed ALWAYS. It was a fantastic environment to be creative and output excellent work. I was able to pump milk for my baby as often as needed and had a safe place to store my milk as well as a clean and private place to pump. The hours were wonderful, 10-6 PM and I almost never had to work late or on the weekends and the company did a lot of fun offsite activities. The creative department was top notch and it was always rewarding to collaborate and work with them.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty low and the hiring process took longer than normal (I believe that is due to their application submission program.) Not in our department but in other areas of the building there were some HR issues, the company did its best to address them but they had to operate through ADP so many felt there was a lack of accountability, again-this never trickled into my department and I did not personally experience anything negative.

    Advice to Management

    More competitive pay or some kind of bonus structure but as far as workplaces go, Group 1200 will always be excellent to me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Group 1200 Media (Flower Mound, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Job was posted online every month for over 8 months. I applied online every time the posting came up and even though I was qualified was never contacted for even a phone interview. Eventually, the job was posted on LinkedIn. I used jobscan.com to compare my resume with the job posting, edited extensively and applied through LinkedIn. Finally got a phone interview. Weeks later I was asked to come in for a 1:1 which I thought went well. Weeks later, I was asked to come in for another 1:1 with the department Director. Not a good interview. Thought for sure I didn't get the job. Weeks later, I got an offer.

    They use ADP for all their HR processing. The ADP applicant tracking system rejects 90% of all applicants.

    Interview Questions

    • No specific questions. Mostly a few general background questions about experience then a very long conversation about how they do things.   Answer Question
