    Entry Level Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at HireStrategy (Washington, DC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was called in for an in person interview at the HireStrategy DC office. We went over my resume and experience and discussed my career goals. The HireStrategy representative I spoke with was very helpful and understands the sometimes lengthy interview process. I submitted a resume to them and they forward it to the companies I say that I am interested in. I chose based on the type of company and the compensation.

    Business Development Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at HireStrategy (Washington, DC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I honestly cannot say enough good things about my experience with HireStrategy. I was referred to them by a former employee who worked there for several years. I submitted my resume for external opportunities and within 48 hours I received a call to set up a preliminary conversation so that the recruiter (Katie), could get to know me on a more personal level and better understand what I was looking for in the next phase of my career. From there, I came in for a 1:1 and met with the recruiter who initially contacted me, she was extremely warm, welcoming, and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, there weren't any external sales roles that immediately stuck out, but she did suggest that I look into internal opportunities. I took her advice and spoke with her superior who then passed me on to the VP of Sales, who goes by "CV." I met with CV in person and we had one of the most refreshing, open, and honest conversations that I've ever had with a hiring manager. CV was not only a pleasure to speak with, but genuinely put my priorities as a sales professional ahead of his own. He challenged me to think about my career path and the level of commitment required to be successful at HireStrategy.

    Ultimately, I decided to forgo the option to pursue a role within the organization. HireStrategy checked off just about every bucket on my list in terms of culture, competitive salary, and upward mobility. It came down to a gut decision, but I would recommend HireStrategy to anyone in the future that is looking to advance in their career and seeking complete transparency. I wish CV and the team at HireStrategy continued success, this is definitely a company that you should keep on your radar for both internal and external opportunities.

    Reasons for Declining

    In order to be truly successful in recruiting, you really need to commit 3 to 5 years to your craft. Unfortunately, my future in DC was too unpredictable to proceed further.

    Human Resources Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HireStrategy (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I had a negative experience working with a recruiter from HireStrategy. They submitted my resume for a position and scheduled the interview process with the company for me. During this process the recruiter was extremely helpful and communicative. However, after there was a lull in the process of moving forward, the recruiter failed to answer my emails or follow-up with me on the status/results. It quickly became very clear to me that the recruiter only had their best interest in mind and not mine (the candidate). The lack of professionalism has really deterred me from ever working with a recruiter here again.

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HireStrategy (Washington, DC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The HireStrategy team was very involved (called or emailed me 2-3 times per week) until I actually went in to their clients office for an in-person interview. It has been a month since my interview and I have yet to receive formal feedback or updates on the hiring manager's final decision. I tried to follow-up several times since then to no response from the HireStrategy team. For a company that depends on talent to grow their business, this is a very poor way to go about building relationships.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HireStrategy (Washington, DC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    These people are ridiculous. This guy called me about a Corporate Recruiter position and didn't even have my resume in front of him. He sounded surprised that I wanted a career in Recruiting just because I have a degree in HR. They are technically the same duties. I don't know what level of talent they hire there.
