I have been working at Mandli Communications full-time (More than a year)
It's an interesting company, family owned, generally nice people to work with, and they allow us to use headphones all day, so you can catch up on your podcasts.
This is an entry level position... Supposedly. But it's not your typical entry level data entry gig. You will be expected to learn a lot of stuff about roads and a suite of in house applications to do your job. Training is sub par. You mostly teach yourself based on documentation on the company wiki that is often obtuse and hard to understand. And the preparation for and execution of the work should merit more than 12 an hour. Health insurance is good, though.
Advice to Management
I think it would help the morale of your data processing team if you would find more capable teachers, both to train on the processes themselves and write the documentation. While the system in place currently works okay, it seems like you are hiring talented people and then not placing them where they could make the organization more efficient. It's also hard to square the size of the contracts with various states with the hourly wage. The data processors provide a huge segment of the final product and I don't believe 12 an hour is fair. It's close, but not quite there.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mandli Communications (Madison, WI) in September 2016.
Receive e-mail to setup phone interview, phone interview largely questions of experience/comfort level on a 1-10 scale and a brief job description and salary range. E-mailed to setup in-person interview, interviewed with 2 managers, given the list of main questions to review for a few minutes prior to interview. A few outside questions were asked but nothing major. Both interviewers we're professional and friendly. Given a tour of the facility after interview. The company seemed great; laid back and supportive of each other. Pay range for position is $12-14/hour. Not able to negotiate offer.
Reasons for Declining
Unfortunately the offer would not compensate for a relocation to Madison, WI.
