    I have been working at The Job Window full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The corporate culture is what makes this company. Everyone is SO friendly, it's a casual working environment (so stuffy business suits are out and you can get away with wearing jeans every day), there's constant rewards and perks for doing a great job (which is something I love because it keeps me constantly motivated) and management has a complete open door policy where they really make you feel like your opinions do matter and that they really want to hear your suggestions so they can implement them and make the overall work environment better. Working here really gives you a sense that both management team members and co-workers want to see you succeed and they coach you constantly to do your absolute best.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge about working here is managing your time, resources and productivity in order to stand out and prove to management that you deserve a promotion. There are so many hardworking and competitive team members here that you really have to be organized and have the ability to multi-task to ensure your efficiency levels are optimal and that you can exceed projected daily goals to separate yourself from the crowd. There is a ton of room for growth here from entry-level to mid-level management positions, as well as new roles constantly opening up in other departments but in order to be considered you need to understand that handwork, dedication and rising to the top of the group is required to be recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The constantly evolving training and incentive program is wonderful. Please keep this up! It's really helped me progress in this role and helped me understand what targets I need to hit in order to get to where I want to be (moving into a more mid-level management role)

    I worked at The Job Window for less than a year

    Pros

    There are none. 100% scam job that prays on recent grads.

    Cons

    I teach at a local university and this company is known to recruit students promising entry level marketing and PR jobs, when in reality it's a commission based job selling items in Sams club or going door to door selling items. The company is very dishonest in job postings and misleads young people in believing they are going to get experience in marketing and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest in job descriptions.

    I worked at The Job Window full-time

    Pros

    The atmosphere of the company was great. Upper management was very friendly and highly motivational.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The hours aren't desirable 8:45-7 M-Sat. The pay was appealing in the interview, but once you begin working you actually make about half than what they make it seem you will earn, on top of that it took three weeks to see a fairly decent pay check. Once you factor in travel time into your check, you're basically getting paid minimum wage. I made more money as a part time sales associate. Overall the company seems like a good place to work for initially, but its just a facade.

    I have been working at The Job Window full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Before starting with Job Window I'd only worked part time jobs - same with just about everyone I'm working with. I like the atmosphere in the office. People are young and competitive with each other. I think in this job you need to be pretty outgoing, but because the company is so young, if you are outgoing and want to advance there's room to move up pretty quickly. Plus there are free snacks in the office - what's not to like about that! I've only been with the Job Window a few months, but I'm pretty excited to see where it leads.

    Cons

    I can’t think of any

    Some Potential; Senior Management needs work

    I worked at The Job Window full-time

    Pros

    The recruiters working there are friendly and lovely to work with. It's a comfortable setting if you are ok with sitting all day for 8 hours

    Cons

    - literally on the phone 8 hours a day
    - pay is base or commission, however it is difficult to make commission depending on the market you are provided
    - borderlines cold calling -- you pretty much just book as many people as you can with little to no requirements or standards.
    - takes embellishing a job description to a whole new level. There is a standard pitch for every job no matter what job it is and very focused on numbers rather than quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide equal opportunity for training new recruiters on board, instead of watching their numbers after only a couple days on the phone.
    Provide better market and leads for recruiters to feel motivated to make those calls and bookings, otherwise it is difficult to motivate employees to make bookings when they know they are unable to make their quota

    I worked at The Job Window full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This was a great company to work for after newly graduating from university. They offer full time hours with salary pay and bonus incentives on top of that. I gained lots of human resources experience that helped me further my career within The Job Window. Managers are very approachable with an open door policy making it a great work environment to be in.

    Cons

    A lot is expected of you but with the high expectations and persistency comes a high pay increase. If you are a motivated individual with a business oriented mindset and looking to grow in a company then this place is for you.

    I have been working at The Job Window full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been working at The Job Window for just over 9 months now, and got promoted after just over 3. It's a great team environment with a lot of friendly competition to keep things lively! Just next month I have been chosen to go on a company trip to Dallas and I am so looking forward to it! The hours are very flexible and benefits are offered. Because it is a growing company there really is A LOT of room for advancement and lots of opportunity!

    Cons

    Really not much, yes the days can get a little repetitive but because of the great team environment we are all able to keep each other hyped up!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trusting that your employees can take on anything if the resources are support are provided!

    I have been working at The Job Window full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people working at The Job Window are young, fresh out of school. It's a growing company and there's room to grow and advance with it. They seek out the input and opinions of people working there so you don't just feel like an anonymous cog in the wheel. It's a fun place to work.

    Cons

    The day to day work can be repetitive. There's also a lot of pressure achieve goals set by the company. There are financial incentives to increase productivity, which are positive and negative. On the one hand they give you the opportunity to make more money, on the other hand they add to the stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting a new company off the ground takes time. More patience.
