I have been working at Play-Well TEKnologies part-time (More than 3 years)
Pay is competitive. Compensation for time and travel is more than fair. Supportive co-workers and managers. Everything they do walks that very fine line between professional and fun.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Play-Well TEKnologies (Stamford, CT) in March 2013.
Casual meeting over coffee. I was told to dress casual ahead of time. The interviewer had very well thought out questions. He had a few standard interview questions, but some really cool thought-provoking questions as well. He really put me at ease and encouraged me to be myself. After meeting him, he made me really want to work for him and for the company.
20 years ago, our founder, Tim Bowen, had an idea to introduce kids to the world of engineering through building and playing with LEGO®, when the concept of S.T.E.M. had not even been popularized yet.
Since then, Play-Well has been lucky enough to teach over 800,000 kids. Here is the story of how a crazy idea became an engineering program for kids that now reaches over 100,000 kids a year all over the United States.
