    I have been working at INTERNATIONAL DESIGN SERVICES full-time

    Pros

    -There have been really great changes in 2016 for benefits. I feel like they have tried to add more benefits for the employees over the years to show they do care for our well-being but they have really stepped it up in 2016.
    -If you need off for any reason, they are always willing to accommodate and work with you. I have never been told no before. They have even let me leave early and come back to finish my shift, and if there is enough work, you could possibly make up your missed time.
    -My direct boss is always willing to listen and help me on any issue I am having.
    -Friendly co-workers, family type atmosphere since our home base is smaller.
    -We have several events to connect with each other outside of work that are sponsored by IDS.

    Cons

    -Maternity Leave is only two weeks paid, and that is not a lot time to spend with your new born.
    -Better training program for incoming employees, especially for the project managers.

    Advice to Management

    -Compliment more on a job well done. I love to complimented and I feel like I only know I am doing a good job when my annual review comes around.
    -Need more patience in certain situations, just because a task seems easy, doesn't mean it is.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at INTERNATIONAL DESIGN SERVICES.

    Interview

    I applied online and it was requested that I take an online test. The test was a generic IQ test. I suppose they use this as some sort of limiter in the hiring process.

    The actual interview itself was odd. It was very casual. My interviewer was wearing a T-shirt and jeans. I felt overdressed, and couldn't help being too self-aware. It turned out my interviewer was the CFO. The interview lasted 10 minutes. Some cursory questions were asked, but none of it felt the least bit personable.

    A week later I received a job offer. In all honesty, if the job market hadn't been so dry, I would not have taken this job based on the interview alone.
