      Remote work from home work. Flexible schedule. Interesting tasks so you never get bored doing the same thing all of the time. Great team members.


      None that I can think of.

        Business Outlook


        There are good things about the company: the job is relatively easy if you have good verbal and basic computer technical skills. Would not be bad as first job out of college. Also friendly colleagues and management. Work expectations are straightforward and there are clear standards of accountability for the most part. Work is somewhat mind-stimulating in the beginning when you are learning materials but that doesn't last. If work is fully remote it is good in that you can be done for the day and not think about it afterwards. Not bad as day job for creative types.


        Main con is lack of career advancement for most testers. Unless you can get a management position, HR, or have an advanced degree in linguistics you are basically in a dead-end job. Pay also not keeping up at all with inflation. Layoffs have been common the past year with the tech downturn. Holidays benefits are also crummy: they literally have employees go on unemployment during weeks of Christmas and Thanksgiving. If the job market is in recession as it was when I took position in 2020 pandemic, it's not the worst thing to take up for short term. But would avoid if job market is strong and you have multiple options.

      Interview Tips

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


      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


      Brand Marketing Strategist

      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?
