I have been working at Creative Circle full-time (less than an year)Pros
Fast placement and lots of gigsCons
I've worked with them in the past and they did place me at full-time staff position years ago. This time around I am freelance to perm.
Terrible communication, disorganized. They did everything wrong from the minute I stepped in the door, from having an outdated resume to losing the background check and therefore costing me a week's worth of work. They placed me then didn't respond to my emails. Totally ignored me and left me on my own. My first paycheck was weeks late because the recruiter didn't set up my supervisor in the system. When I contacted my recruiter about the lag, she said, "You'll get paid. Promise!!" Entirely unprofessional.
They only offered vision and dental even though I was a full-time freelance contractor. They contacted me two days before my contract ended and I responded to the recruiter's email and she never wrote back. Now they are sending me job postings that have nothing to do with my field or what I do. So frustrating. Whatever can go wrong will go wrong.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Hire some recruiters who know what they are doing and who know how to answer emails.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
