    Pros

    Coming to work at Vari gives me confidence in my work and my work future. The company leadership works to give each employee a sense of self-worth and value. The leadership is very transparent and employees are always being informed of where we are and where our company is going. There are great visionaries at our company and they are always looking for more ways to innovate and grow our business. Working at Vari makes you want to come to work. There is a sense of excitement among the employees. From gathering at the coffee bar for conversation to meeting about work opportunities, people are genuinely kind and caring of one another. I have never worked with a more exciting team. You are encouraged to not be stagnant at your work station. We are always active and moving. There is never a chance for boredom at Vari. We are always challenged to learn more and grow in our potential. If you are looking for a place to feel excited about your work and company leadership, Vari is definitely a Texas Great Place to Work!

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I had an awful experience. The interviewer did not turn up to my first call scheduled with her, I waited up to 30 mins...after which her email response felt like excuses. In my 10 years of experience working with recruiters this was one of the most insulting. On the rescheduled interview there was no apology or feeling of sincerity. I really felt she had a lack of understanding of the role and requirements of the candidate. It was a cold interviewer who did not appear experienced, the questions felt without thought and scripted. They did not get back to me as promised, after a couple of weeks got an automated email.

    I heard about the importance of positive culture which is why i was very interested, but my experience made me feel my time was not respected not in line with the culture proudly advertised. If this is a HR problem, please address this as they are making Varidesk look bad.

    Having spoken to recruitment agencies, it seems this is a known problem with Varidesk and I should have noted the red flag and discontinued my application after my first experience. My time is as valuable as your personnel and i should not have to ask for it to be respected.

    I like what Varidesk stands for and respect the words of your CEO, that’s why I even continued after the bad experiences and red flags.
