Employee Ownership

Everyone at HCSS -- executives, managers, and employees – has one thing in common: they're all owners of the company. Because of that mentality, they take extra care in their work and with customers.

Named to Houston Business Journal's "Best Places to Work in Houston" and "Fast 100" lists!

You’ll spend approximately half of your life at work. Why make it boring and miserable? Think about how much happier you’d be going to a job you enjoyed – more than that, a job you loved, that made you look forward to going to the office every day. HCSS is dedicated to providing that kind of career to employees.

Culture

At HCSS, we’re all about that perfect work-life balance. We foster a casual work environment where the dress code includes T-shirts and jeans and office Nerf wars can break out any time. We focus on getting our work done, not on how many hours we put in. See how our team showcases our culture through #insideHCSS.

Community

In addition to sponsoring several 5Ks and other events throughout the year, they also work with the Fort Bend Women's Center and other area charities.

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

    Pros

    Since the first day I've walked in the door, the support department has treated me like family. Everyone here is more than happy to help with any question or problem that might arise. I've never worked with a team so talented, smart, and motivated before. Each person in support truly cares about the customers, as well as each other. I have yet to wake up in the morning and say "I don't want to go to work today".

    Cons

    HCSS is not your typical, corporate environment. If that is what you are interested or you feel you need, then this likely isn't the right fit for you.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at HCSS (Houston, TX) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Very thorough and very professional. I was reached out to on LinkedIn and proceeded to have a screening interview with talent aquisition, a phone interview with the hiring manager, a first face to face interview with 4 senior level sales managers and a second face to face interview with the hiring manager, director of inside sales, CFO and CEO. Everyone is very polite and excited to get to know you and see if you're a good fit, but also if HCSS is a good fit for you personally. Be able to back up everything you put on your resume as they'll cover everything.
