I worked at Rylem as a contractor (more than an year)Pros
Contracted with Rylem for about a year at a large company in Seattle. I only left them because I changed from contract to full-time with that company.
I got benefits, really fair pay, and my recruiter on the Rylem side was amazing and very up front with me (Mandy, you're amazing!).
I almost didn't pursue the role because I lived in Tacoma (~an hour south) and the driving commute was just awful. They were able to give me a subsidized ORCA card that saved me at least a couple thousand dollars (I'm not even kidding) in gas, parking, maintenance, etc. I could not find any other agency in Seattle that offered this.
They also offered happy hours so all the contractors on my campus could get together and touch base and just chill out with one another. I would definitely consider them a high-touch, lots of TLC company.
I would definitely work with them again! I was sad to leave.Cons
I've heard rumblings of internal-office drama, but I feel like that happens everywhere, and as a candidate, I was not part of any of this (I heard it from a disgruntled former employee who was let go due to performance. You hear bad reviews more than you hear positive ones!).Advice to ManagementAdvice
Give people like Mandy (aka rockstar recruiters) so much love! They are what keep people coming back. :)RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

I applied through other source – interviewed at Rylem.Interview Details
A recruiter for Amazon approached me about some job opportunities. I went through three phone interviews with Amazon and heard nothing back. About a week later a person at Rylem emailed me saying her colleague at Amazon had given her my information and she told me I didn’t get the position at Amazon. You can imagine I was upset. I found out through a third party that I didn’t get a job at Amazon and that my personal CONFIDENTIAL information had been given out by Amazon to a third party. Rylem has inside people at Amazon feeding them confidential information on candidates. This must be part of the unethical practices that I see other reviews on.Interview Questions
