    Pros

    If you're looking for a place to learn, this is it. If you want to work for a company where you really make a difference, this is it. Be willing to work your ass off -- you're not going to have time to surf Facebook or Youtube all day: this is a real job. There is no sitting in a corner and doing those few things that get assigned to you. If you want to be "just an employee" go somewhere else. You will be challenged and stressed but when you are done, you will have a sense of accomplishment.

    Cons

    CEO is a great guy, decent human being. However he struggles with interpersonal skills. He can be very demanding and curt - coming off as rude. But then he can turn around and be very generous. He also does not seem to pick up on normal social cues. Below-average wages. The CEO gave us a book for required reading -- I wish he would read this part again:

    "If I hire an employee at below-market rate, market forces dictate that I'm not going to keep that person forever, and replacement will be more costly in the long run than hiring that employee at the market rate. A high turnover rate is very, very expensive. It also makes it hard to create consistency in the workplace, which can lower productivity, service quality, and customer satisfaction (this is also expensive)."

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is a lot more than just giving orders and being "king of the castle". You must be able to garner trust and give trust in return. Once trust is lost, it's difficult to rebuild.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volacci (Austin, TX) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I figured I would give this place a shot, even after seeing it get trashed on this website. Heck, I was even kind enough to point out how badly they had been trashed to their "management". Bottom line is it seems this company doesn't know what they want. I went through a phone interview, group interview, then two individual interviews. Not only were the interviews redundant, they were a magnificent waste of time. Come in for this group interview and then several days later we'll call you in for a one on one, oh yeah, and then just one more one on one interview. Oh and then after the series of interviews, after spending several weeks giving this company your time and effort they let you know - "we are not currently hiring, but preemptively interviewing for when we have the work available". WHAT THE WHAT is that!? Well, why are you still running craigslist ads for the same position? Except now the advertised pay is cut in half! I just don't know, it seemed like a legit company at first, but after being through the process and seeing how the company operates, it's clear they don't know what they want or where they are trying to go. Good luck hiring talent when you can't even show respect to the potential talent that comes in. Thanks for wasting my time.

    Best Regards,

    MG
