    I have been working at Welfont full-time (More than 3 years)


    A lot of entry level jobs are a dead ends with little to no learning opportunities. Welfont is quite the opposite. The executive team TRUSTS the employees that they have hired to do their jobs which has created a laid back, family atmosphere. Additionally, they are open to advice (from employees at all levels) and willing to take the time to pass on their skills.

    I have received several promotions during my short time here. What is even better though is that I have received invaluable hands on experience which has allowed me to build my resume considerably.


    Welfont is growing quickly which does present it's challenges as things change quite quickly. With that said if you are adaptable, it is a HUGE opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Vice President Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Welfont (Tampa, FL) in August 2015.


    The interview process was like none I had ever experienced. The company provided the most well thought out questionnaire I had ever seen. Very thought provoking and based on the quality on my co-workers I would say very effective. The personal interview was scheduled for 30 minutes and went in excess of three hours. However at the end of the interview I knew that Welfont was a fit for me and felt I was a fit for Welfont.
