Mission: To provide technology and services that contribute significantly to the success of our customers and to provide Daxko team members with rewarding careers.
I have been working at Daxko full-time
Daxko doesn't joke about culture. They recognize that happy & fulfilled team members work better & harder. The culture is deep & it's contagious. The team here is all in -- and that's a good thing! New team members can feel it on Day 1.
Transparency from top to bottom! This was a HUGE deal to me when I started at Daxko. Our CEO has weekly Q&A sessions where any team member can ask any question they have about the company & what's going on. Also, leadership isn't behind closed doors in stuffy offices that remove them from everyone else -- they sit in the middle of the office & are always approachable for a question or just a quick hello.
The open office space lends to a collaborative work environment.
Daxko truly cares about providing rewarding careers to their team members. Every team member has a professional development budget to attend conferences or workshops, pay for books, join professional organizations, etc.
Benefits are FANTASTIC! Plus perks like Free Friday Lunch & free drinks/fruit/coffee on the daily, casual dress code & other random treats & surprises are awesome.
Everyone is willing to lend a helping hand. People here recognize that Daxko is a TEAM & are willing to help out. In my first few weeks at Daxko, I had TONS of questions & every person I interacted was more than happy to help.
Daxko is a very fast-paced atmosphere. Things are constantly changing. There's definitely an adjustment period if you're not used to that kind of work environment. If you don't do well with change or prefer a slow-paced daily work experience, Daxko may not be the place for you.
Advice to Management
Thanks for the transparency! Keep it up!
I applied online. I interviewed at Daxko (Birmingham, AL (US)) in May-2017.
I started off with a Video Interview as well as a personality and cognitive aptitude test. These were great because they could be completed on my own time. I felt like I could show more of my personality through this format than the traditional first round phone interview.
I was then brought in for a one on one interview with a Team Lead, which lasted about an hour and a half. The interview was very relaxed, but also gave me great insight into the position and allowed me to give much further detail regarding my experience.
Next, I was brought in for a peer interview. Essentially, I was given a scenario with some basic background information and instructions letting me know that I would be presenting on how I would approach the situation. I was given plenty of time to prepare for this beforehand and really enjoyed the process. I presented to 6 different team leads and transitioned to the peer interview portion immediately after. This process lasted about an hour and a half. It was awesome to hear different perspectives on the company and have the opportunity to answer questions from different teams within the company.
Lastly, I had a follow up phone call with a Team Lead which was primarily focused on giving me an opportunity to address concerns that they had with my experience and qualifications. How cool is this?! I was given the chance to give further insight into my experience and directly address concerns. This was a first for me. I feel like 9 times out of 10 companies don’t take the time to give you an opportunity to address their concerns.
All in all, the interview process lasted about 2 months.
