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!

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Windstream (Little Rock, AR) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was the best job interview I ever had. Very relaxed atmosphere, very professional, and very informative. I actually found out that the very attorney who interviewed me for the position I applied for worked for a competitive law firm that I was involved with in EEOC cases years prior, but, on the opposite side of.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about my experience with the EEOC and employment law.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I feel I was offered very fair compensation for the position that I applied for.
