    I worked at Next Step Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Upward mobility, fair wages, good benefits, good atmosphere, frequent social events, good mission, modern office set up, ability to make bonuses and commissions in some roles

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be less than desirable in some roles; especially field and sales based roles. Sometimes they expect people to wear too many hats

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect people to keep adding responsibilities to their job description while remaining at the same pay grade for too long

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Next Step Living (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was extremely easy. Most of the questions were about the work I had done at my past jobs. They also asked how long I had been at each job and why I left. Also, what my career goals were and skills and experiences I had that I could bring to that company. I was asked when I could start during the interview. I was not asked for references.
