I have been working at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. full-timeRecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
The company remains small with lots of work to do, so you will have ample opportunity to develop your skills and move up the ladder. Quorum is a good place to start where you will learn a lot about the oil and gas industry, develop technical skills such as SQL, and professional skills.
The work/life balance can be hard to manage, especially if you have to travel 5 days a week for months at a time. Quorum has seen its business grow immensely, but its headcount is almost stagnant, so people are increasingly having to do more with less.
Advice to Management
Not enough attention is made to employee retention. Quorum's business success rests entirely on the people it employs rather than its patents or software products it sells; while it sells software products to its clients who pay an annual license fee, Quorum primarily is a services firm. Without good people, Quorum will have difficulty keeping its existing clients and selling its products to new clients. Quorum has smart employees who know what they are doing, but its client list continues to grow yet the headcount does not--or only slowly. As such, Quorum is increasingly stretched too thin to maintain its services and service quality, which is not good for business. So, my advice to management is this: focus on current employee retention, and improve year-round recruiting efforts to bring in more people throughout the year (rather than such a heavy reliance on University recruiting).
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 5+ months – interviewed at Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. in May 2015.
I went to the job fair in February and gave them my information. Applied online in early January and again in February. Contacted people from HR via email around March. Called and left messages around late March early April. They finally got back to me in May. I scheduled a phone interview with them a couple days later(Friday). Said they'd be back to me on Wednesday, then Friday. Didn't get an answer until the following Monday via a phone message, not a phone call.
I did think the company would've been a good opportunity, based on the interviewers answers to my questions and other reviews. Although, following the entire process, I am still left unsure as to why I was not selected for the follow up interview despite my good credentials. I emailed the head recruiter in hopes of getting some feedback for personal growth, but received a response with no answer. I was a little insulted when the person addressed me incorrectly(not a typing mistake), especially when my email address is firstname.lastname@...com. Based on the experience, I would say the recruiters have too much on their plate. They would be able to consider more candidates, more carefully, in a more timely manner if they just had some more help in HR. Moral of the story, don't feel bad if they don't get back to you, they will...eventually.
tl;dr Good opportunity, but recruitment seems understaffed. Extremely slow to get an initial response. 1+ week to get phone screen decision. Felt like they had too few people thumbing through hundreds of applicants, not giving enough consideration to each.
