    I have been working at Collaborative Solutions full-time


    As cliché as it may sound, the best part about working for Collaborative is the culture. The leadership team is comprised of the most approachable executives I have ever worked for. Employees are encouraged to hone their skills through internal training workshops and Workday certification courses. Collaborative also offers unlimited PTO which they strongly encourage employees to take advantage of. The benefit options are also very generous with the Company paying 100% of the premiums for employee only coverage for medical, dental and vision.


    Collaborative is quickly growing which means there may be a few growing pains here and there which is to be expected of a smaller company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company grows, management needs to remember that one of the main things that makes Collaborative so great is the culture and not to lose track of this as the company expands.

    Thanks for being so awesome!

    Workday HCM Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Collaborative Solutions in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I heard about the position through a friend who is an employee at CS and reached out to the recruiter who was a very young and inexperienced (self-proclaimed) girl from CA. The initial phone interview went very well, basic questions and conversation. I was then supposed to be scheduled for a second round interview and I waited 2 weeks to get scheduled. Finally only after I had to reach out to the recruiter, I was informed that hiring was put on hold for about 5 - 6 months. I was interested in the job so I waited. I reached out a number of times during those months to ensure that I would not be lost or forgotten. I was assured that I was on the list to call as soon as hiring resumed. About 5 months later I heard from my friend that hiring had resumed although I never heard from the recruiter (she completely forgot about all of the people she has spoke with in months prior, not only myself). I reached out to her and was finally scheduled for the second interview. The conversation went fantastic and I was even more excited. I was then scheduled for a third interview which went awesome as well. Then I had a fourth and a fifth. All of which went really well. The entire process was overseen by the initial recruiter. The fifth interview was supposed to be the last but then the hiring manager was on vacation for a week so they decided to squeeze me in for a sixth interview. Keep in mind that each interview was an hour long phone conversation with people in various positions. I took the sixth interview and then was told I should hear something by the end of the week. That week came and went. Then another week came and I emailed the recruiter and received no response. I followed up again the following week with no response again! Then I sent another email the week after that. I went a total of three weeks after my last interview before hearing back from her late on a Friday afternoon. It was the generic, "sorry but we went with another candidate" response. I emailed her for feed back and essentially got the same email in different wording.
    I am not even upset that I did not get the job. After being jerked around for so long I can see that this company does not have their act together and it probably would have been a huge mistake for me to take a job with them. It is ironic however, that a company that supposedly consults for HCM, Financial, and recruiting software has such a deplorable recruiting process.
