KellyMitchell Group – Why Work For Us?

undefined

We’re KellyMitchell—a premier technology consulting company dedicated to matching the most qualified IT professionals with top organizations nation-wide. As an award-winning, professional services company, we pride ourselves on offering high-quality strategic consulting, staff augmentation and outsourced business solutions to a wide variety of companies, from Fortune 500 corporations to rapidly growing high-tech organizations. Whether you’re a potential candidate seeking a job, or an established employer looking to hire, we’re up to the challenge. As your IT staffing liaisons we are committed to achieving your goal by helping organizations quickly and effectively meet their technology personnel needs. Let us impress you.

 

History

In 1998, three visionaries gathered around a coffee pot, certain they could create a company that would provide the same high-quality technology professional services to Fortune 500 companies as the Big 4 consulting firms, but with better customer service and at a lower cost…if only they could think of a name.

Inspired by some very important names in their lives—the names of their children—they decided on KellyMitchell Group. They financed the start-up with their own savings and equipped the office with their own computers. It took two years to take home a paycheck, but they were driven to succeed.

Today KellyMitchell continues to rely on the simple philosophy that sets us apart from our competition:

  • We believe every employee is crucial to our success
  • We are heavily invested in our employees’ personal and professional growth
  • We have an unwavering commitment to create a win-win situation for our clients and employees

KellyMitchell serves the technology staffing needs of diverse organizations across the country, and employs hundreds of the industry’s top IT professionals. In addition to our headquarters in St. Louis, we have offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, Newark, San Ramon, and Seattle, and maintain service locations in over 35 additional states.

 

Community Involvement

We may be growing fast, but we never lose sight of the communities that support us. Our commitment to community service grows from the same philosophy that drives us to exceed expectations for both candidates and clients. We truly believe we can make the world better—by helping job candidates reach their full potential, and by serving the communities we are so proud to be a part of.

    I have been working at KellyMitchell Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company culture is amazing at KellyMitchell! The best part of working there is by far the people. Everyone is positive, hard working, and customer focused. The leadership team is professional and personal. It's a great environment to be in. There is also a lot of opportunity at KellyMitchell. If you work hard and prove your worth, then they'll promote from within or even create new opportunities/positions. It's exciting to be a part of a firm that is growing so fast and in the right direction.

    Cons

    The turnover. This comes with any IT staffing firm though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My one advice to Management would be to focus more on training. Whether it be for new Recruiters, Accounting, HR, etc., I think every position should have a formal training process in place.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at KellyMitchell Group in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online to recruit for the Chicago office, and was emailed about scheduling a phone interview within a couple days- maybe even sooner. I first did a phone interview with Megan who is in charge of hiring recruiters at that location. She was very nice, and asked a lot about my experience and about my resume. After this, in a couple days I was asked to schedule an in-person interview. This was a fairly straightforward interview with Megan again- there was supposed to be another interviewer Shannon, but she had an unexpected meeting and could not attend. I have interviewed with 3 other large Technical Recruiting companies in Chicago, and Megan was by far the best internal recruiter I've dealt with. You can tell she is very straightforward and honest with you, and really tells you thorough details of the position. She is great for her position in the company, and you can tell she really loves what she does.

    2 days after the in-person interview I was extended the offer and I am very sure about my decision to accept.

    Interview Questions
