I worked at Peer 1 Hosting full-time (More than 3 years)
working here gave me the opportunity to learn Vmware and gain the skills I still use today at my current job
the only two Cons to working for Peer 1 in their Data Center was that my scheduled work hours changed multiple times while I worked there. The best schedule I had there was working 12 hour shifts 7AM to 7 PM Working a 4 on 3 off, 3 on 4 off rotation where I always had Sunday off for the first day of my scheduled days off. The second Con is that I never got any kind of a pay raise while working there until right before I turned in my notice to leave to take my current job.
Advice to Management
Make sure you are paying your workers an adequate rate that is comparable to what other companies in the area are paying for the exact same job and don't make them wait again to get any kind of a raise, give them cost of living increases
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Peer 1 Hosting (Atlanta, GA) in May 2014.
Even from the beginning of the process, I felt like I was being taken seriously as a candidate for the People Partner position. The executive I spoke to initially took time on a Saturday for my culture screen. 4 other meetings/calls (not one time were they ever referred to as "interviews") followed. The people I spoke to were very clear about the role of the position and what it took to be successful. I was interviewed by a fellow People Partner as well as the Director of People and Performance.
Negotiation was standard: offer, counter-offer, agreement.
