    I have been working at PoolCorp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working as a contract employee in the IT department for 6 months now, and I'm due to become permanent any day. Since day one, I have been treated with immense respect and care from management and have been given the responsibility and authority I have craved for so long. My ideas are given consideration and I am included as a member of the team in all aspects. In my previous working experience, I have never been treated as well as I have at POOLCORP.

    Cons

    From what I hear and have yet to experience, the health insurance and benefits could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat employees with the same care and respect that you do now, but don't forget that operating as a big business with a small business mindset will only get you so far.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PoolCorp (San Diego, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    After applying I received an email informing me that the company would like to conduct a phone interview. I selected a time from the available options and was contacted within the window I had chosen. The phone interview is conducted by a third party agency. A few minutes after the phone interview, I received another phone call to set up a face-to-face interview.
