CULTURE: The team is really dedicated and engaged- and they truly believe in finding the right fit for candidates and clients. The message comes directly from the CEO and partners to be honest and up-front about opportunities, available positions, and the market. As an employee this is a relief- there isn't pressure to compromise values to make a deal happen. FEEDBACK: Management is also willing to take time and offer additional training if there is an area of improvement, and will sit down to have a discussion when an issue arises. STAFF: The team itself is a pro, the partners pay attention to culture-fit when they are hiring. Everyone knows how to keep their head down and get work done, but there will be jokes, happy hours, and when you do a great job you'll receive congratulations and thank you's. Because chemistry is important, new hires will often meet most of the team before they start.
The office is extremely fast paced; the needs of the business can change minute to minute. It's also a small team. This isn't necessarily a problem, but it isn't for everyone. Whoever comes on board has to be ready to jump right in and wear many hats- if one person is out for a week chances are you will take on aspects of his or her role. You have to be assertive and actively ask questions, offer to help, and be willing to make a lot of calls. For better or worse you will gain exposure to all aspects of the company. This can be a bit chaotic, but it is also an opportunity. Someone flexible and eager to help can learn a lot and be part of decision-making.
Advice to Management
The management is made up of big personalities, but the partners all have a sense of humor. Even when the office is busy, they usually are able to make time and are receptive when employees reach out and ask for help or guidance. They will also openly ask for feedback (and it's not a false ask, they really want it)- probably one of the best qualities of Ruthi Postow Staffing!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ruthi Postow Staffing (Washington, DC) in August 2014.
It was pretty straight forward. I went through four rounds. I started with a phone interview, which was pretty extensive lasting about 45 minutes. that was followed by two rounds of in person interviews where I met several members of the team. The last round was shadow day where I sat in on the office for about 30 minutes to observe the company in action.
