    Pros

    I just started a few weeks ago, but the team has been very welcoming. They have all taken the time out of their busy schedules to sit down and go over their techniques, key points to keep in mind, tricks and tools of the trade, and any other support and advice to be able to get me going ASAP. Each Account Exec also takes the time to sit with the candidates and the recruiters to go over the roles and ensure that we are submitting the best quality candidates to our clients. Overall we have great communication and get along like a family (with out the fighting!)

    Cons

    Summer is always a slow hiring time and heavy vacation time so requirements are light, but more requirements are coming in now so we are looking forward to being too busy!

    Advice to Management

    Not advice so much, but keep investing in the new business opportunities. It's nice that the recruiters are encouraged to also help with biz development, makes the recruiter/account exec bond that much stronger

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Eliassen Group.

    Interview

    Started off as interview with HR, which went well. She described role, sounded interesting, then put me in touch with senior leader of group I'd be reporting into. This is where it started to go wrong. The interview was odd, with each question being cut off after about 15-20 seconds. (He explained that if he heard the answer he was looking for, he'd just go to next question to save his time). OK. I understand if you want to know if I know what I'm talking about, but this came off as "my time is more important than yours...and I'm just looking to know if you can answer an oral exam." At end of interview, he said "congrats, you've passed" (Ok, good...) "You can now be an associate." Um. I thought I was interviewing for a director level role. Oh, no. That position is gone. But you can come on as an associate and work into a leadership role, after all, we want to see what you can do. Um, no thank you. I guess I should be flattered that I continue to be called by them. However, each HR rep is different who calls me, and I can hear them reading my bio as they talk to me, versus taking the 3 to 5 mins before the call to know a bit about me and the history. In the end, it felt much like a body shop than a group interested in partnerships and careers.
