Decision Toolbox – Why Work For Us?

Smarter recruitment solutions for smarter hires.

On the outside, Decision Toolbox is a recruitment products and services company known for the passion and creativity we bring to the table. But on the inside, we are a veritable R&D lab obsessed with innovating and optimizing recruitment productivity, quality and service. You will not find a group of people more zealous about this than our team.

Founded in 1992, the company is a 100% virtual organization with employees across the U.S. We are widely known for our unconventional, award winning culture and our ability to attract and retain the best recruiting talent in the market. And because we have no walls or windows, we are able to pass those cost savings along to our clients.

Decision Toolbox has taken a leadership role in almost every aspect of recruitment, including introducing an RPO offering years before it became industry practice. On the technology side, our (in-house developed) recruiting productivity platform astonishes candidates, clients and our own users with the way it wraps around every step of every process to build in both quality and efficiency. We are recognized as a thought leader by organizations such as SHRM, PIHRA, and the NHRA, are a four time winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility, and are a four time winner of HRO’s Baker’s Dozen top on-demand RPO companies. Decision Toolbox is also certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as a Women Owned Business.

Decision Toolbox Careers

slippersDecision Toolbox is a company that shapes the recruitment industry itself as we succeed within it.

From an employment standpoint, Decision Toolbox is a study in harmonious contradiction.

  • We are 100% virtual – everyone works from home – yet we have a cultural glue and feeling of camaraderie that blows peoples’ minds.

  • We have a tremendous amount of structure in the form of processes, tools and technology that we use, but at the same time we require people to think creatively.

  • We strongly promote life balance, yet our team members display tremendous passion and commitment in the important role we play in the success of our clients and lives of our candidates.

  • Our leadership team believes that its true role is to serve the rest of the company.

  • We strive for perfection, yet we celebrate mistakes.

  • This is not a company for traditionalists, yet we love (and are loved by) traditional clients as well as industry disrupters.

Decision Toolbox is a company for people who want to play an active role in the ongoing creation of something special. If you join us, be prepared to do the best work of your life.

    I have been working at Decision Toolbox full-time (less than an year)


    What a great company to work for. Not only do you get to work virtually, but also the welcome aboard you feel from every other virtual employee is amazing! The best of both worlds! I recently went through training. I felt the trainer communicated in a well-organized, courteous, and effective manner. The trainer was always on time and preformed a well organized and thought out training session each day. I felt I was treated in a respectful and supportive manner throughout my training. Whenever I raised my hand for help there was always someone in the organization there to help in a kind and supportive way. There is no other organization out there like this. If you are looking for a great place to work and find a home, this is the place.


    I don't get to see these awesome people everyday! At least I can IM them! You become like a family, so getting to see each other once a year is a treat.

    Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Decision Toolbox in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Refreshingly streamlined and efficient interview process. The very detailed job description with candidate questions built in is reflective of the service Decision Toolbox gives to its customers. A far better first impression than other RPO or search firms that just cut/paste job descriptions. First interview by phone includes typical phonescreen questions and takes about 45 minutes. The second interview is also by phone (this is a virtual company after all), but includes a screen share so you can demonstrate how you navigate and use typical recruiting tools. Great way to quickly determine if someone is bluffing about their recruiting/sourcing skill set. References and an offer follow shortly.
