      The pay was decent and lots of work to keep busy so the days went by quickly and steady hours of work. Some of the staff were nice and professional.


      Rude Management and they were unorganized The project Managers did not treat their staff equally and often made people feel less than important. It was a "Do as I say" not "Do as I Do"

        It is a good workplace and decent benefits.401K, Health Insurance, PTO, and 10 holidays off. Has good work/home balance.


        The pay is below the national average and Houston is becoming expensive to live in. They need to consider increasing people's pay.

      Project Manager

      Hey everyone, Just needed to vent a bit about this job hunt. It's been a wild ride, to say the least. Lately, it feels like I'm sending my applications into a black hole, and I'm not alone in this, am I? Interviews seem to be the rarest gems, and job postings seem to disappear as soon as I hit 'apply.' Anyway, I'd love to hear your experiences. What's been your biggest frustration as a job seeker? How do you stay motivated in this crazy journey? Any words of wisdom or empathy to share?


      Marketing Manager

      What are people’s thoughts on those personality and logic tests some companies made you do as part of the hiring process? I frankly don’t like them. I understand if the test is for people who more technical but for roles leaning more creative or ideas based - I don’t understand how patterns I’m forced to review in a short time tells them I’m worth it to get the Hiring manager round. One asked me 50 ques in 15 min. And they never tell how you did on the tests

      Anyone have any stories of times where you declined an offer at one company (just because it wasn’t the exact right fit or you got another better offer at that time) and u successfully re-connect? Is that a burned bridge forever? Would they consider you for another job again?
