    I have been working at Challenger, Gray & Christmas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    We help people through one of the 3 most difficult periods of a persons life, job loss (death and divorce are the other 2) and have a positive impact on everyone we touch. I've been on the receiving end twice and I helped me.

    Cons

    Potential customers try to compare us like apples to apples and we are just so much better. It gets frustrating at times. If the try it then they understand the magic.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Challenger, Gray & Christmas (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I interviewed with two individuals that left the company in less than a year. Ii was screened by a wonderful woman who made me feel very comfortable and at ease. My interviewer did not share that the position had little discretion or collaboration, but I am not sure that he was aware of the way the company works. Both individuals seemed as if they were recruiters that were brought in for a specific period of time to "get the job done."

    What do employers need to know about Gen Z

    For the last decade, marketers, employers, and brands alike struggled to understand the Millennial workforce. However, now that the oldest Millennials are reaching their mid-thirties, it is time to shift focus to the next generation - Generation Z.
