    I have been working at AVID Technical Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    AVID holds standards of being a staffing firm. They do quality work with quality candidates.

    Coworkers are all friendly and here to help eachother

    The environment, including people, is very welcoming. Friendly competition is fun. The encouragement goes a long way.

    No one is breathing down my neck and no one is micromanaging me.

    Cons

    I wish training was more technical (since we deal with very technical positions and candidates). Also, we have some great sales people, so I wish we had more thorough sales training (it is definitely an art/skill, so let's build it). People get better in time, but specific training would make the learning process faster.

    Need a little better communication of the roles and companies between account managers and recruiters.

    Advice to Management

    Set a stronger habit of account managers giving the most thorough description possible on a position to the recruiters in person and digitally. It's hard to sell something when you don't know all of the details.

    More technical training and sales training would go a long way.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AVID Technical Resources in March 2018.

    Interview

    AVID reached out to me when they found my resume on a job board. They connected me with a company for a software engineering position. I ended up going through several interview steps at this company with AVID being my line of contact. The AVID employee who worked with me was very kind and helped prepare me for interviews. I would highly recommend using AVID.
