I have been working at Collaborative Solutions full-time
Collaborative Solutions is a great company....this is home! Executive management is in-touch with employees and clients, and each "Collabie" is truly interested in helping others grow within the company. The culture here is tangible...it's ingrained in everyday communications and is something everyone embraces.
Every day is a good day!
I have no real cons at this time.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing!
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Collaborative Solutions in March 2018.
Applied online and the Talent Acquisition Manager reached out to me very shortly thereafter to schedule a 45-minute initial phone interview. The process then went as follows:
1) Talent Acquisition Manager interview: Standard first round interview questions, discussed why Collaborative, why Workday, why I was looking for a change in organizations, how I worked with others, if I was able to travel, challenges with past clients, likes / dislikes, etc...The next morning, I was asked if I wanted to proceed with a peer interview.
2) 60-minute phone peer interview a few days after the initial interview: A lot of double-sided questions, such as what were some really good experiences I've had, some really bad experiences I've had, things I do/do not like doing in the workplace, how I felt about a remote work environment. All in all the conversation was very positive and gave me a great opportunity to understand a day in the life of someone I'd be working with.
Was contacted at the end of the day by the recruiter to see how the conversation went and to schedule the manager interview.
3) 75-minute manager interview in-person, 2 weeks after the 2nd interview due to scheduling: Very casual and felt more like a conversation than an interview. Was asked about past change management, training and technical writing experiences and how those past experiences would fit into the role at Collaborative and what projects were like.
Was contacted the next day by the recruiter to schedule the final, director interview.
4) 60-minute phone call with the practice's director: Similar to the manager interview, very much like a conversation and to confirm I'd be a good fit for Collaborative. A lot of me asking questions about the role and its requirements, the practice and Collaborative.
The next day, I received a call from the recruiter telling me about the offer details, benefits and was getting final approval from senior staff on the offer. I received the offer shortly after the call and the official documentation for it shortly thereafter that!
Overall, the interview experience was very positive. Communication between each step was prompt, and each interview I had was very transparent about the inner workings of Collaborative, client-facing work and how teams work with one another.
