    I worked at Monster Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years


    The leadership on the advertising sales (no input on recruitment) side motivates the team and has developed a great culture. has a strong brand and focus. As a whole the company has great potential.


    The Monster brand is diminishing to LinkedIn and others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow with LinkedIn.

    Inside Sales Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Tempe, AZ
    Anonymous Employee in Tempe, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Monster Worldwide in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a few emails requesting a phone interview. I spoke with a recruiter for about 45 minutes. Beyond that he said he needed to share our conversation and my answers with the hiring managers for the next step and would be in touch with me either way within 1-2 days. That was over 2 weeks ago now and I still haven't heard anything from him after 3 follow up attempts on my end. As a professional, I expect to be treated as such and shown the respect of an answer either way. Leaving a potential candidate hanging shows a real lack of appreciation for their time. I personally sent him a follow up thank you email the same day as our interview and subsequent phone follow up 1 week later.... still, no response.
