Positive Reviews from Employees

What makes you most happy at work?

Knowing I can make a difference in the company's success.

Getting to work with the people I work with in a career field I love.

What is most positive about the culture and environment at your company?

One of the most positive things about our culture and environment is that is fosters Growth, allowing employees to be the best they can be.

Constructive Feedback from Employees

Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?

Student workers are underpaid. With the AR minimum wage $11 and student workers starting out at $11.25, it does play a factor in our "importance". We do a lot of the same tasks as FT employees, which makes me (and the other SW's I've compared to) feel undervalued.

The company makes record profits every year, but wages are not reflective of that. The time off accrual plan is also abysmal as you have to work with the company 10 years to receive 4 weeks off. Industry standard is unlimited time off or 4 weeks to start.

What would you improve about your company's interview process?

I went through three or four interviews before I was hired, which was ridiculous. The recruiting team is working on an overhaul of the hiring process so things should be better in the future.
