I worked at FCB Health full-time (More than 3 years)
Great teams, smart, passionate people.
Work/life balance can be challenging...
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FCB Health.
I applied through a strong referral, but worked with a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks, though I have no idea why it took so long to not even meet with a single person. The recruiter I spoke with was completely unprofessional. She forgot about our phone meeting, and when I called she was surprised and tried to pass it off as no big deal. She clearly had not read any of my emails and had difficulty finding my very basic information even when I spelled it out over the phone. She also admitted to not having much experience recruiting for the level I was applying for. She gave me little to no information about the open positions I was interested in. We played email tag for a few days (I would email her and ...wait) and I even left her a voice mail. She finally sent me a note with the same information about the openings that she originally outlined in our first conversation. Finally, she forwarded my work to the appropriate people, but after a few more days of waiting I was informed that the hiring manager was moving on to other candidates and that another position had been filled from within. I know I am a strong candidate and I know I was working with someone who clearly wasn't focused on my potential contribution to the company.
I can understand a misstep here or there, but my overall experience was completely underwhelming and frankly gave me such a negative perception of FCB hiring that I'm not likely to consider them in the future.
