    I worked at OneSource Building Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot working at OneSource about the industry and what a "Project Coordinator" does. Because of this after being laid off I was able to get a far better paying job. I don't drink coffee or tea so I guess the free water was good?

    Cons

    I won't sit here and bash the company has a number of this already reviewed have been brought up. If you get hired as a Project Coordinator just know that you could lose your job at any time. Maybe your account gets too slow or you get moved to a different account that ends up going kaput. Well you'll end up on the chopping block. Same goes for the Call Center. Every few months the call center get gutted because things slow down. Then there is too much work for them to handle, so the process starts again.

    As A PC, be prepared to be on call 24/7. But also note that you need permission from your manager to work anything outside of normal hours. Which will also be an issue because most of the time over time is not allowed. SO, be prepared to have to explain why you got over time x times in a row etc. Then also know that you may be asked to come in later or leave early so you don't actually get paid for any of that over time. But anything happening with your account while you are not at work so that you don't get over time pay is still your responsibility. Thus the cycle continues.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the hourly pay if you expect PC's to be on call and make them salary. OR, just pay for the over time. If some one is working to secure their paycheck and make your customers happy, they deserve the pay.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OneSource Building Technologies (Houston, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    4 managers interviewed me for approximately 45 minutes and covered much of my experience. They went over documents I provided which were descriptive of my abilities and experience. I was asked many questions relative to my past jobs and how I thought I might fit in.
