What are the best (or worst!) companies to work for in Dallas and Plano?

Ideally companies with positions in HR, Management and Marketing? Also good companies for a mid 20's graduate with some sales, management, and marketing exp. to grow??

Have applied to Dr. Pepper, Frito Lay, Perot Systems, Cinemark, Baylor Medical, EmCare, Alcon, etc..... Hoping for salary of 55k and up is possible. Also any tips to get an interview? Submiting online is very difficult to obtain interviews even if qualified for position.

Thank you in advance!

I was going to suggest Southwest...... Mavs is good as is the Dallas Stars and you might try the Cowboys since they are trying to still sell season tickets in the new JerryDome. Oh, one of the area suburbs lost the head of the Chamber of Commerce. It was on the northeast side.......... Garland, Rockwall, Wylie and that vicinity........ just can't remember which one I read about recently.

One way of getting interviews is references in these places that he applied if any available. The word of a company employer holds some value. If applying online, luck plays a part as in, applying at the right place at the right time. One positive way is to highlight the strong points in the resume and make sure those words match the requirements of the job. This catches the resume scrutinizer's eye (hopefully). There will be numerous resumes online, so his resume needs to standout.

I would also make a cover letter. Write one which says why he wants to work there and what makes him a good candidate for the position in particular and the company in general.
