Do Not Work Here - Follow up review Don't just take my word for it. If you interview with them, ask the person interviewing you about turnover and ask if you can speak to a few people about working there. Use what I list below as a guide.** Turnover was high for such a small company. Employees in every area of the company regularly discussed how they were looking for new jobs and helped staff find new roles once they were in new companies. The office sits above another business and it felt as if we were working in someone's home. There was little privacy even when meeting with candidates. Interviews were conducted in a smaller room that was connected to other rooms with regular traffic and coworkers regularly walked through. There was no commission for recruiters and no actual business development outside of government related work. The majority of the jobs were low paying short-term roles in the area and also in remote places throughout the state where there were few candidates. The higher level staff was disorganized, regularly late for meetings with potential clients and not fully prepared for these meetings. They also interfered with internal processes that worked. Many of us had ideas regarding improving the business and making processes more efficient, but we stopped making suggestions once we realized that nothing would be considered. I never had a performance evaluation, which is odd because recruitment is metrics driven. The applicant tracking system wasn't great and recruiters needed to look for workarounds for tasks that should've been automated. No one had a direct phone line, staff members had to answer and forward all calls to others because there was no general admin. person. There was also a security camera near the front door and the recruiters were required to verify that the person was a legitimate visitor, let them in and greet them even if the person was meeting someone else. Accountability was lacking for certain managers as most of their direct reports did the bulk of the work and were held to higher standards. People avoided speaking to certain members of management because the interactions were regularly negative.
