My first step is to look at company reviews. But I don’t take them all at face value. I read both positive and negative reviews. The truth is that even good companies can get bad reviews at times. I work for one company that you can find several reviews that call the job a scam. However, if you have worked for the company, you can tell that those people just aren’t a good fit with the job, and got mad about it. So I take some reviews with a grain of salt.
