    I have been working at LocalVox (Less than a year)

    Pros

    When I first came to LocalVox the company came across as being stuck a bit of a rut, which seemed to be due to previous employees that had come into the company and did not want to work. That has now changed, and most of those employees have moved on to other jobs outside of LocalVox, realizing this was a career where you needed to actually try to succeed in helping out small businesses.

    Personally, I have been working for LocalVox for 8 months and could not be happier with where I am. The supervisors are experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and genuinely care about my career goals, whether in the company or not. LocalVox offers insights into digital marketing that I had not previously experienced at past jobs, and really takes the time to train each individual that starts with the company. Plus, there is so much opportunity for growth within. I would recommend serious consideration for a job with LocalVox to anyone who is offered. You won't regret it, and if you work hard, then you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    The only con would be where the company was when I first started, but like I said, in the pros, that has already changed drastically.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring intelligent, hard-working employees and this company will continue to grow.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at LocalVox (New York, NY).

    Interview

    When I went to the downtown offices to interview, the receptionist talked about blacking out and drinking in the office while I was sitting waiting for my interviews. The over all first impression was poor, but I decided to proceed.

    The interviewees were both men who did not seem interested in speaking with me. Both were very arrogant and the one man kept checking his phone and couldn't remember my name. They did not ask about my previous experience and would cut me off if I tried to speak about it. They just asked talked about how much room there was to grow in the company and how much the employees loved working there. (I eventually found out that this was not the case at all). They quoted me an offer on the spot and said they would send me a contract. They took weeks to follow up, never sent me a contract and when I started they paid me almost $2,000 lower than the amount they had offered me. I was desperate for a job so I accepted.

    I was also hired for one position and was trained for another. The whole ordeal was misleading and a bit of a scam.
