    Pros

    The people, the pay (when you do well, after all it is a sales job and if you suck you don't make a lot), my boss, the mission.

    Cons

    There are people that have a very ignorant view of the direction monster is taking. You see it all over this site through negative reviews. Sometimes it is hard to be positive when there are so many negative people with an unrealistic expectation of the job and business in general. The company is adapting to the change in the marketplace faster and more smart than any of the competitors. Yes it would be nice to fail and still get 100% commission or a pat on the back, but that is not how business works. Sales is a very different job than most, yes the company gives you pto, but a true sales person knows that everyday missed in the office is an opportunity and a sale not made. The biggest con about monster is that they allow these negative, spiteful people work there. Monster is a great company and will continue to do great things.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the negative, ignorant, and unsuccessful sales people. They are poisoning the waters.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide.

    Interview

    Pretty simple, was referred in, phone interview with recruiter, 1:1 interview with manager. Everything went very quickly after that, background check, application online, negotiation and that was that. Overall it was pleasant experience and not daunting whatsoever. If you know what you are doing you can easily make a good impression. Just be aware that when you start and are in the field your on your own and the learning curve is a bit longer than other companies they compete with.
