    I have been working at LA Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, friendly coworkers, collaborative environment and friendly culture that tries hard to please its employees. Upper management is trying hard to make this organization world-class and the best in the business. Many departments are at the top of their game in the tourism marketing industry. It feels good to work for a company at the top of its game. Benefits like 401k plan and insurance and vacation are top notch, competitive with other top companies.

    Cons

    It takes a long time — months — to hire and fill a slot, sometimes making it counterproductive. Salaries are moderate, although management says it’s competitive. Don’t expect to get rich working here. Instead, work here for the pleasure of making a difference for the city of Los Angeles, and as the brand ambassador for one of the greatest cities in the world. Not many jobs in Los Angeles carry this kind of power.

    Advice to Management

    You’re doing a good job of making this company better. I see the rapid improvement and high quality of people you hire. Good job.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at LA Inc. (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I turned in my cover letter and resume online and received an invite for an interview within about three days from the HR Director. There was a tight schedule to get the interview in, and I was able to come in on very short notice. I met with the Department director, who started off asking me questions to determine my knowledge of the field for which I was applying. Then the Department director explained the nature of the position and what that department was looking for in candidates. I asked a few questions and that was it. The interview probably lasted 20 minutes, and the Department director was pretty emotionless the entire time. I sent an email to the HR Director (I received no response) and a thank you card to the Department Director. About a week later I received an email from the HR Director stating that they would be moving forward with other candidates for the final round. I sent a follow up email kindly asking for an explanation as to why I had not been selected, and I got no response.
