Mission: Our mission is to create business excellence and enrich the lives of people.
I worked at Design Group Staffing full-time (More than 3 years)
Flexible work environment, flexible time, friendly staff, downtown location (Jasper Avenue is really nice when taking transit as well as convenience for errands or last minute shopping). It is also great if you have a downtown event after hours, sometimes you can park in company parking!
Politics can be a bit tricky, but they're really not that different from other places. If you must drive to work, then parking can be expensive because it is downtown. At the time of my departure, things weren't going particularly well so it became a more stressful environment.
Advice to Management
Catch people in the act of doing it right. Otherwise, I think management is doing the right things. the market is tough so every bit of business is a fight and they seem to be staying afloat in spite of it all.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Design Group Staffing in June 2009.
Met practice manager, followed by number of other recruiters from the team. Had a short interview with CEO. There was HR / behavioural Test. And after reference checks, I was offered the role.
Salary is Draw against commissions. They don't negotiate commision structure. There is some flexibility to negotiate on draw but since its a recoverable draw, higher draw will put more pressure on you to perform. Its better to take minimum required draw, surpass that and earn commissions.
