    Pros

    Wheelhouse IT is a great place to get your feet into the door of IT and start your career! Having no experience at all, Wheelhouse IT gave me the opportunity to step into my career with confidence and a strong foundation. I learned different types of technologies and problem solving skills that I probably would not have learned somewhere else. I had a great team of people who believed in me and through out the years helped me advance through the technical hierarchy and grow in the company.

    The culture is amazing! We would have company social events at the park, beach or we would just whip out the BBQ and have lunch all together outside in the parking lot. Every Friday, we would hang out after work at the office, play board games and socialize.

    They offer great employee benefits such as a paid cellphone plan, health and accident insurance, 401K, etc.

    Cons

    Realistically, there are cons to working at any company in the world, but here are some to list:

    -On Call : responding to client support requests after hours or on the weekend (paid)
    -Stressful : a very fast high paced environment where you'll be juggling a lot of things at the same time. You'll learn how to multi-task very quickly.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WheelHouse IT (Fort Lauderdale, FL).

    Interview

    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.
