    I have been working at QPS Employment Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Leadership allows employees to grow within the company and develop their skills. There is little micro-managing which allows for independence and self-guidance within your role at the company. I've had the opportunity to work in many areas while at this company. I've always been encouraged to try different things and push the boundaries of how and why we do things here at QPS. This company is a very fast paced organization and we work very hard, so employees have to truly dedicate their time and energy to the company.

    Cons

    When we're busy, we are BUSY! At times it can be stressful to work here, but we all pull together as a team and get through it. QPS is not for every employee, but we try to be up front about this.

    Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at QPS Employment Group.

    Interview Details

    Had phone interview with HR. Invited onsite for in-person interview with Hiring Manager. The Hiring Manager basically gave a run down of vision of department and did most of the talking, didn't seem too interested in learning about me. I had questions about metrics/expectations of recruiter that the Hiring Manager didn't have an answer because they were in the process of developing this due to newer division.

    Was invited back about a week later for second in-person interview with the owner. The owner asked questions such as "what would your friends from high school say about you?", "what activities were you involved in while in high school". Some other basic questions - "Do you have any other offers you are currently working through?", "What are your salary expectations".

    Overall, not many questions, if any, asking about my sourcing strategies or recruiting initiatives. I was really caught of guard by this and had to proactively bring up my strengths and re-direct the conversation back to the job description and my experiences. It seemed like they were just wanting to talk about their company instead of getting to know me. They were mainly looking for personality fit than anything else. It seemed like it would be a fun, laid back, low stress position while finishing up school, with a lucrative commission structure in place on top of the base pay (which the hiring manager went over in detail in the interview - they were very transparent) so I accepted it.

    Negotiation Details
    Didn't negotiate really since it seemed like the lucrative commission structure would be easily attainable, which it was. They have set up the commission at the company to be to your benefit - the percentage is high and you can make a lot of money.. which I did. I was surprised they gave so much in commissions to the employees, first company I heard of this.
