Fast Paced, good people, fun friendly enviornment.
Always wanting you to work overtime, covering shifts. Schedule is tiring
Advice to Management
Appreciate the good people you have. The good ones come and go quickly due to lack of positive feedback, growth opportunity, and compensation increases only once a year.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PrintingForLess.com in September 2016.
Interview process started with a phone screen from HR. The HR rep was very professional and courteous and the conversation went well. This led to a phone call from the CTO the following day, whom asked a bit more about my technical background, though no true technical questions were asked. It was a great opportunity to get a feel for the personality of the CTO, and the experience was very positive.
The next part of the process was a coding test, which is pretty time consuming as a step to make it to the technical interview. It would be nice if the code sample were smaller and the technical interview was first. I'm not sure how much weight is placed on the code test as well, I completed the MVP of the code test, however, if one judged me solely off the technical interview, one probably would have thought I had never seen C# code in my life.
The next step of the process was a technical video interview where many technical questions were asked these questions are great for judging how much information candidates hold on the top of their head, however, the nature of software development is one which developers often find themselves reading documentation to recall concepts that are less frequently used and may misrepresent an individuals ability to build quality applications.
With that said, this is the interview process and it is one that works for them in selecting the right folks for the job. This company seemed very professional throughout the entire process. Many companies often do not even reach out to candidates to tell them they had not been selected to continue, but PFL took the time to reach out and call me to let me know what I needed to work on in the future to join the team which I felt was very professional.
