    Interview

    Spoke on phone, met in person, interview led to nothing. They only recruit for corporate accounting so if you’re looking to obtain a position in public or under a cpa look elsewhere.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I got a phone call from the company asking when is a good time for me to have a phone interview. We set it for the day after that which she forgot to call and after 40 minutes I send her an email and finally, she called! Then we set a facetime interview for 10 days after that. One hour before the interview she sends me an email and apologized that she has to cancel it. In response, I asked when is the next date for our interview and she never replied my email!!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch in January 2018.

    Interview

    It was a phone screen only. Did not proceed further. It didn’t feel right to give someone all the information and sign the contract before even meeting someone personally from the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch.

    Interview

    Contacted twice by a recruiter from Parker and Lynch insisting she had a position that fit my qualifications. I set up a phone interview time with them to discuss, never got a call just an email a day later saying something came up. They contacted me again this week, set up another phone interview, never got contacted. This place is unreliable.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Met with a recruiter after I applied to a job they posted. Met with them and not only did the recruiter I met with never contact me again, but he did not respond to an email I sent him a couple of weeks later. I updated my resume with some changes and wanted to touch base and I didn't get so much as a reply back. Meeting with them was a complete waste of time.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who said that I should come in and discuss some job opportunities. I came in and met with the recruiters, who said they would try to help me find a job and they mentioned a few different positions they had. However, after that was over I never heard from them again, ever. Not a single word from them about these positions. I am assuming that they just brought me in so they could meet some type of candidate interview quota, never intending to actually help me with anything. It was a waste of time to meet with them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch.

    Interview

    They will do anything to get you in the door; I am guessing to meet some sort of sales (i.e. number of applicants in the door) goal. However, once that is over don't ever expect to hear from them again. This place is a 100%, total waste of your time even if you have the most pristine qualifications. One must wonder what they actually do.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Parker & Lynch (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    They spam job posting sites like LinkedIn and ZipRecruiter by posting roles for their clients. Then you meet with their sleazy sales folks who inform you that they are going to help you find a job. I interviewed for two different roles through Parker and Lynch, which uses a number of different aliases. I did not get either job, but the interviews were long - and one was a roughly 2 hour commute from the city. They float a bunch of different people for the same job, so there is a low likelihood of getting it. But they will tell you not to apply for any other jobs in the area. In all I wasted about a month because I bought into this scam. Don't fall for the fake jobs they post.
