        Free gym membership. Free pool access to swim club.


        Salaries are extremely low with non-existent to peanuts for raises. Benefits are the worst of my career with a $2,500 deductible. Be warned you will spend a ton for healthcare. Lots of family members work there., which are favored. They look out for their own, but pretend you are part of the family. Family members get more worthy work. Outsiders get all the work nobody wants to do. HR is controlled by a family member. If you have any issues, you have no place to go. You have to work there 6 months before you can even participate in retirement. Vacation time is 10 days to start for the first 5 years! They have cameras everywhere because they don’t trust anyone. This is one reason they don’t want anyone working from home, and they say it’s the company culture. The management offices overlook the desks of employees, so they can watch everything you do and say. It like a modern day slave shop. They hire a lot of uneducated African Americans. And, they pretend they are Hawaiian, hence the company name.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Software Engineer

      I did my initial interview with a “better established” startup and they said the interview process is 5 interviews. 3 technical then 1 interview with the CEO then another technical interview. Idk about you but that seems like a lot of interviews and they said they want to do it as fast as possible in a short time span. Is this a normal amount of interviews? Is this a red flag? For a full stack software position 4-5 years exp how much salary should be the norm in a hcol area?


      Business Analyst

      Is it unprofessional to attend a Zoom interview from within your car? I am currently employed and just landed an interview for tomorrow. It is a virtual interview over Zoom. Should I try to find somewhere besides my car for the interview? I don't know that I could but wanted to get yalls thoughts on this.


      Public Relations Account Supervisor

      Has talent acquisition ever called you after a final interview to inform you that you DIDN’T receive the position?
