    I have been working at The Headfirst Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Headfirst is a great place to learn how to grind hard and become extremely creative. It is an established company so you aren't digging up your own business, but they give you the tools to put your own twist on it. The team is very close with one another which makes for a fun working environment. Although we work hard it is fun doing it together and having a piece in the actual product that goes out. If you want to coast in a job, not the right place, but for those looking to either find a home for good or develop in finding out who you really are, Headfirst is the spot.

    Cons

    Long hours can be tough.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Headfirst Companies (Washington, DC) in February 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward. The entire process took about 3-4 weeks. It started with a phone interview/job description of the internship, followed by a couple of Skype interviews with different people in the company. I interviewed with the people I would be working directly with. They were extremely nice and informative. The interviews were very conversational. Make sure you research the company prior to the interviews.
