    I have been working at Search Wizards full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, personal, interested in their employees, proactive. SW has great tools in place to help their employees succeed.

    Cons

    I have been working here for 3+ years and I have yet to find a negative at this company!

    I have been working at Search Wizards as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    * Work with high caliber clients
    * Pay is competitive
    * Good recruiters

    Cons

    * Low customer service
    * nonexclusive processes
    * Failure to evolve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Response to a recent reply from the company. While polite, the response highlights the frustration in working with Search Wizards. Wearing the statement "our processes haven't changed in 14 years" as a badge of honor goes to show how far they are missing the point. How many contractors did they have on the west coast 14 years ago? Maybe it’s time to shake the dust off and polish up their processes so the employees on the west coast get the same level of service as employees on the east coast.

    Secondly, none of this is an excuse for poor customer service. Your contractors are out there working hard and doing their best to represent your brand. There is nothing wrong with deadlines, we all have them. It’s the way you police your deadlines that is the issue. We have to provide a high level of service and bring our “A” game every day for work. Is it too much to ask Search Wizards to do the same? Is it too much to ask they create processes and manage those processes in a way that is beneficial to contractors on both coast?

    I worked at Search Wizards as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Search Wizards moved very quickly, as did their Client to get me on board since I had another offer. When my contract ended, they got me 2 or 3 solid companies to interview with and although I was not hired to date, they never stop trying. Talise, Miranda and Leslie are excellent!

    Cons

    None that I can think of and I hope to work with them again in the future!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work - each member of your team is great!

    Pros

    Incredibly professional, took great interest in what I was doing for their client and if all my needs were met. Never any issue with pay/benefits or expenses. They constantly checked in on me to see how tings were going. Senior management was hands on in keeping in touch. Can't say enough good about Search Wizards experience!!

    Cons

    None to speak of at this time.

    I have been working at Search Wizards

    Pros

    Owner presents herself well and has been able to secure some good contracts.

    Cons

    I only had contact with one other person at Search Wizards besides the owner and she may have been a part-time contractor. Staffing Consultants are contracted out to the owner's clients. I don't
    think there are any "employees" at Search Wizards. Experience was disappointing with owner's actions and communications.

    Pros

    Every person I worked with at Search Wizards was professional and extremely helpful. If I needed anything they were on it! They checked in with me to see how my contract was going every month and I always felt that I could count on them. They also have excellent benefits and offer educational opportunities. They really go above and beyond to make the experience with them a great one.

    Cons

    There are not any. My experience was excellent.

    I have been working at Search Wizards

    Pros

    high energy environmet, flexibiliy with work schedule, opportunity for advancement,

    Cons

    it is a pro and a con: working virtual sometimes makes the "office" enviroment a thing of the past. Obviously the same interaction with coworkers is not there. However, the fleibility makes up for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing ... it is obviously working for you!
