I have been working at Holland Partner Group full-time (More than 10 years)
The people … I have met some of my dearest friends while working at Holland.
The above and beyond benefits! Profit Sharing, Key Associates and last but not least Sabbaticals…yes I’ve had multiple and counting down to another!
The ability to be creative and have your ideas heard and appreciated.
A feeling of family, I without question feel as though I am a part of the Holland family.
Wish there was a Kaiser option for medical insurance.
In some cases if you have been here a long time it seems as though the new hire compensation rate is higher than existing associates salaries, and you can't catch up with the standard increase that loyal associates receive. This may be resolved with standard salary ranges per job titles/level and annual cost of living adjustments.
Advice to Management
Allow more scheduling flexibility to associates who have proven they won't take advantage of flexible freedom. One bad apple shouldn't ruin a bunch.
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Holland Partner Group (Vancouver, WA) in March 2017.
The application process and initial call back for a phone screening was rather quick. I applied sometime in the afternoon, and less than two hours later, I received a phone call for a phone screening. This phone interview lasted about 45-60 minutes. At the end of the call, the HR Manager informed me that she'd like to schedule an in-person interview that same week. The following day I received a call from the Recruiter, who scheduled the in-person interview the following day, with the HR Manager and the Recruiter.
The in-person interview went well, with the typical HR related questions, that lasted around 45 minutes. I did ask about other candidates that were being considered, as well as "next steps". The HR Manager did share, that there were 3 other candidates, that they would be narrowing down to two, for the final interviews to take place the following week with the VP of HR and the owner.
I sent "Thank you" cards that same day. One week later, I had not heard back, and I reached out with a brief, follow up email, which went unanswered for an additional week; totaling two weeks before receiving any communication.
This was the only frustrating part - the lack of followup. Taking into consideration, how quick the company was to contact me to schedule a phone interview and in-person interview, compared to how the recruiter and hiring manager went "ghost" immediately following the in-person interview, in my opinion, can be an area for improvement. This left a bad taste in my mouth as a candidate, and made me reconsider my interest and affected my view of the company.
