I worked at Babich & Associates full-time (Less than a year)
The owner is heavily involved, available and works at the same job as everyone else - this keeps him very much in the loop and on top of it all. He is a pro and has amazing energy, and there is a lot one can learn from him. The on boarding takes advantage of current motivational tips as well as past direct company experience. If one follows his advice, both in the manuals of the on boarding and directly, one can be successful. It is a real job for experienced recruiters perhaps a little older in the game and respects the work/life balance. I appreciated working there.
This can be a con or a pro: if one is happy with full desk recruiting but not interested in corporate mobility or internal projects, then one can focus on the job at hand and any focus is going to bring more money. However, if one is still in the throes of developing one's career or needs challenges outside of the job itself, then it might be better to look for a position with a larger firm. It just depends on where one is in life and what one is looking for.
Advice to Management
In my case, my request to move into a different line of service with which I also had experience was denied outright, even though all the ducks lined up for it to be a good move. It just seemed I wasn't heard. I was very disheartened, and coupling that with some sad family events at the time, I simply decided I needed to move on albeit it was a super hard decision and one I periodically think about till today.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Babich & Associates (Dallas, TX) in March 2015.
One starts the process by applying to a job posting listed by Babich & Associates. The recruiter reviews your resume and contacts your for a one-on-one interview. The interview helps the recruiter match you to potential employers. There are several recruiters, each working with different areas of employment, like medical or sales. The staff was polite but felt the recruiter I spoke with did not take the time to prepare for my interview. The recruiter asked questions that were clearly answered on my resume rather than asking me to further explain item(s) listed on my resume. Also, I asked the recruiter some questions and the recruiter's answers left me feeling recruiter was not well-versed in the legal field. Babich & Associates will most likely not help in my job search. Hopefully, someone else will have a better experience.
