I have been working at WheelHouse IT full-time (Less than a year)
I've been exposed to many cultures over the years, and I have to say hands down the dynamic we have here at Wheelhouse is something to be recognized.
- Everyday we are seeking new potential and opportunities.
- Our leadership team drives people to think outside of the confines of the proverbial "box" and that is how we continue to grow which is a great comfort.
- Having the pleasure of working with some of the most passionate people I've seen in the industry is five stars in my book.
- Nothing feels better than a productive and creative meeting and I've seen plenty of those here versus my time in other organizations in the past.
- Passion, Passion, Passion drives this place... Many days I'll see people stick around after their shift not because they have to but because they "want to" and greatness isn't achieved by just doing 9-5
- Many of the perks here are a great way to help people offsets the "costs of life"
- There is always "something to do" and never a dull moment
No organization is perfect and I would caution anyone that might fall into the "grass is always greener" elsewhere trap, Wheelhouse IT really is making a very strong go of it in a competitive market and showing great results as a result.
The strong and rapid growth has some caveats and growing pains. For example, initiatives to improve parts of the business could and should move faster than they sometimes do.
Advice to Management
Keep your ear to the ground and keep the 1 on 1 meetings going. It's easy to get busy in the day to day , but remember by making the time and keeping a finger on the pulse of our team we will continue to see great things and grow people.
I applied online. I interviewed at WheelHouse IT (Fort Lauderdale, FL).
Applied for a job, got an interview. I showed up a little bit early, and things seemed a little bit disorganized, but nothing raised any red flags. I was put into a conference room and promptly kicked out of the conference room by two guys who needed it. The interviewer showed back up, noticed that those guys were using the conference room. Then, instead of taking me else where to conduct the interview, after about a 20 minute delay, I was lead into the same conference room with one gentlemen that was scheduled to be a part of the interview, and one random executive that didn't even know he was going to be interviewing, because the original interviewer didn't show up.
So we get to the questions, and I thought we had a great conversation. Everything was very open, very candid, and they seemed to be interested in what I was bringing to the table. They made several positive comments about the interview process, and even assigned me "homework" to have me do some quick research on a couple of basic IT principles which I was unable to explain during the interview process. I knew that I had gaps in knowledge, and was readily prepared to be turned down, despite them being interested in my extensive customer service and training experience. But given their enthusiastic demeanor, I was optimistic, because they seemed interested in following up with me.
Then they ghosted me. I followed up repeatedly with no answer until I started getting mailer daemon bounce-back emails from the woman who organized the interview. I called and got bounced around their phone network. I never received a follow up call from either interviewer. I did heavy research on the company ahead of time, and while they *say* they pride themselves on their follow ups, I see that I'm not the only one they ghosted. It's just impolite, unprofessional, and a waste of time, and I really wish companies would respect prospects and job candidates the way they would like to be respected in return.
