    A very detailed process that includes several rounds of conversation, personality tests, spatial and pattern test recofnition, and meetings with the team as well. Thorough, but enjiyable as the people at TSL are professional and engaging.

Testimonials that you'll never see on Glassdoor. https://tslmedia.sg/experience We've updated our photo gallery with 30+ testimonials we've received over the years. There are many heartfelt messages, with staff sharing the friendships, lasting memories and good experiences they've had at our companies. We've never actively taken note of these, so looking back, these are just the few we were able to find. You will never see these on Glassdoor, because happy employees generally do not go to Glassdoor to write reviews. It is way more natural for them to just express positive experiences through informal channels like their IG pages. For those wondering what the job experience at TSL is truly like, we'll just let these pictures speak for themselves. https://tslmedia.sg/experience Featured in this pic: Hui Wen finished her internship with us in 2019. After trying out different jobs in other companies, we're glad she decided to return to TSL and she was hired as an FT in 2021.
