    I worked at STA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many companies claim to be family friendly, but few really are. After my first interview upper management from STA called to ask me how my son felt about his father traveling for work. STA does not just claim to be family oriented, it’s woven into their business practices.

    Cons

    For me the only negative I found was the location of the position I really wanted. I have no complaints whatsoever, just an incredible company staffed with incredible employees!

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Izzi maintain exactly what you do and how you do it. As long as you continue conducting interviews as you did mine, STA will surely be staffed with some of the best and brightest. I immensely enjoyed the entire process as well as meeting all the wonderful people which STA employs. .

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at STA.

    Interview

    Went in to interview at the Santa Barbara office a week after applying. Interview went well, seemed very busy but laid back at the same time. Questions asked were pretty standard, wanted to know specific functions/roles in past jobs as well as any analyzing that was done with numbers. Was told the salary range for the job, benefits, etc. Upon receiving an offer letter, I was offered less than the base range.
