Not worth the irritation or money
Client Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – May 17, 2017
The work overall at Hobsons is not hard. It's much easier when people are willing to help (depends on who is asking), as the software can be hard to navigate.
Training is slightly less than adequate, but again, if you can get help after, it will be much easier.
It can be petty and cliquey most days. Unfortunately if you are not part of the clique then management will simply get rid of you. Your job performance really does not matter.
I actually had one woman in my department who decided that she hated me so much she would pretend to be deaf to avoid helping me with questions, and the only time she ever said good morning was the day after everyone was informed I would be leaving. She said good morning with such gusto to let me know she was very happy about that.
Plenty of companies provide the same if not better vacation, healthcare etc, so unless it was across the street from my apartment, I would not recommend them to anyone.
open office, nice kitchen/snack area
Cliques, rude people, gossipy co-workers
