I worked at Chiltern International full-time (More than 5 years)
Great people and team spirit. Although there has been a lot of turnover in recent years, there is a strong core of people that have been there more than 10-20 years that are very supportive.
Has been papering over the crack over the past few years. Systems and process are stone-age and have been driving the margins down, so they are letting for non-billable people to try to improve the margins for a sale. Long term this will be a disaster.
Advice to Management
Get your house in order and improve efficiencies before the house of cards falls down.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Chiltern International (Raleigh, NC) in May 2017.
I was connected to an existing employee who pushed my Resume/application through to the recruiter for this specific position.
The whole process from beginning to end was very unprofessional.
After the recruiter contacted me to let me know they would be in touch shortly to schedule a phone interview. I did not hear back for a week before I contacted the recruiter via email to inquire if the position had already been filled. I received an abrupt reply from the recruiter that was addressed to the wrong person (not my name but close). They indicated that recruitment for the position was "on hold" until final approvals, which puzzled me. Also, they stated that they were "super busy with approved positions" and would be in touch soon. This left me with a negative outlook for future contact.
Once the position was "open" I was contacted to schedule a call. Only one time slot option was given for the next morning. I accepted as I had hope that perhaps the rest of the process would be more smooth. Unfortunately this was not the case. The recruiter was rude from "hello" to the end of the call with a tone of condescension. After this interaction, I knew Chiltern would not be a place I could see myself pursuing a career.
