Executive Assistant at MarketCounsel
in Englewood, NJ

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"MarketCounsel is a totally rad, regulatory compliance consulting aside :)"

What do you like about working at MarketCounsel?

"While at MarketCounsel I always felt supported, appreciated, and respected. It was a cultivating environment in which I grew exponentially, acquiring knowledge, skills, and confidence that has carried me far beyond my time there."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"My tips for interviewing here are no different than my tips for interviewing anywhere else: Be yourself!!If you, in your truest form, are not a good fit for a company, then you shouldn't want to work there.But if your question is what are some of the things MarketCounsel values, then my answer would be honesty, assertiveness, creativity, and sensibility... and follow-through. Be the kind of person that does what they say they are going to do!"

What don't you like about working at MarketCounsel?

"I wish till this day that the nature of the business at MC was just different. I was used to working at nonprofits and with children and missed that, so I left to pursue my passions. But MarketCounsel had such a wonderful culture; it was fresh and alive with great energy and outstanding people. If only I could copy and paste the company and the people in it to another industry entirely :)"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"As I said before, I always felt really supported. That was one of the tings I appreciated most there. Actually I still keep in contact with the CEO, Brian Hamburger. I learned so much from him back then and he is still a mentor to me. Continue to deliver that kind of experience to your team."

Executive Assistant at Hal Hays Construction
in Riverside, CA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"Awesome experience, love the environment."

What do you like about working at Hal Hays Construction?

"Everything! Team environment! Support! GREAT Benefits! Trust! Freedom! Growth!I have known of this company for the last 20 years. I have watched it grow. It is within the last 2 years that I made the decision to join the team. It is very apparent to me that the poor review/ratings were posted by FORMER Employees. Every objective employee knows that there is a reason you were let go. What you might state a negative, I see as a positive. YES, they do have a high turnover rate; due to the fact that the boss has an uncanny ability to spot the lazy, and is not afraid to terminate it for the betterment of the TEAM. Basically, if you are not afraid to work, you will do great in this enviroment!There is a reason that the company has thrived thus far!"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be yourself, state your capiabilities from the start. Be ready for growth!"

What don't you like about working at Hal Hays Construction?

"A few lazy people that need to be weeded out."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Keep training. Keep the bar HIGH! The right people for the team are out there."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

What don't you like about working at EXTRA Express?

"The company doesn't close so someone always has to work."
