Work isn’t all about the grind—not all the time.

Sure, by definition, work is an activity in which one exerts strength or faculties (physical or mental effort) to do or perform something. Thank you, Merriam-Webster dictionary. But, what that definition doesn’t explain is that work can’t be done thoroughly and to its greatest capacity unless you break it up… make it fun… laugh a little… breathe.

WINation is good at finding ways to break up the heaviness of a hard work day. The technical term for it is called “having fun at work” but we just call it keeping it real. Whether that means laughing at a funny animal video during our break or sharing candy with coworkers at that 3pm lull… we know how to make each other smile.

Take a look at the video to catch a glimpse of how we roll… WINation style. Hope to see you on the other side!

    I have been working at Windstream full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great teamwork and highly qualified people that want to do a good job. The pay can be excellent in large deals

    Cons

    The red tape to get orders processes. In acquisition mode with lots of layoffs and stress. They laid people off in groups on a single call and mass fired with little detail as to pay, commission, etc. excellent people let go while less qualified remained on.

    The hiring process was very brief, short first interview, the second interview was a little longer. The person I met with shortly left the organization so I was left without a boss for a while.
