What is it like working at TSL? Here’s what real staff have said.

The Smart Local Job Opportunities

Here are 30+ entries shared by ex-staff about their The Smart Local work experience. 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.

There are also reviews for our sister sites Eatbook, MustShareNews and ZULA.

You will never see these on sites like Glassdoor, because happy employees generally do not go there to write reviews. It is way more natural for them to just express good experiences through informal channels like their IG pages.

You’ll also see many staff who have graduated from our internship program, who came back to work with us again in the future. Not everyone writes stuff like this on their IG, so these are the more vocal ones.
