I worked at Novotus full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Novotus overall is a structured environment that will mold you into a strategic thinker and deliverer. Training at Novotus is very unique and you will gain experience there that will set you apart from any future co-workers. There is great opportunity at Novotus if you go there willing to learn and grow. Leadership takes pride in "growing their own" and truly celebrates their Recruiters. Leadership will not only talk the talk but walk the walk. They put their employees above themselves and will show you by working to elevate your career and serve you in any way they can. Literally they will serve you your Thanksgiving meals provided at the office and deliver your Friday morning breakfast just to be sure they thank you for your hard work. This company has a heart and that is so rare to find today.Cons
Metrics can sometimes trip up delivery. The focus of delivery sometimes will be on numbers vs quality and relationship to the customer.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep the main thing the main thing ;) The foundation in which Novotus was built on is why it is successful and wonderful today. Never lose sight of the real reason we all love this job.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online – interviewed at Novotus.Interview Details
I applied online for a position in Novotus' Houston office. Then I was subsequently e-mailed by a Recruiter.
The Recruiter's secretary scheduled our telephone interview for 1:00.
The Recruiter was 15 minutes late to the interview (Strike 1).
Be that as it may...
There were no real questions during the initial screening process as the Recruiter was very unprofessional and ill prepared.
With that said...
She asked me the basic introductory questions in pertinence to my last job, what I had done, and etc.
Then, completely out of left field, she proceeded to tell me how completely under-qualified I was for the opening at hand (she told me that she needed someone who had experience recruiting welders...Again, my resume told her my experience. Furthermore, the job add said absolutely nothing about that. As a matter of fact it stated explicitly that Novotus was seeking ALL LEVELS OF RECRUITERS for several openings in Houston. Since I've been Recruiting for the last 5 years I thought I was qualified, hence the reason I submitted an application).
If I was so woefully under qualified then why did she even reach out to me for the interview?
Then, very unprofessionally (which was a theme with her), she laughed about how her hiring manager would shoot her down if she submitted my resume for this position.
I thought to myself, "I will never work for Novotus Houston, ever."
If this is the type of "Recruiter" that the Houston office has on it's team then I'll go find another RPO. I could not deal with this type of person everyday. So I feel fortunate that this did not go past the telephone interview stage.
The interview was horrible and it left me with a very bad impression of the company.Interview Questions
