Advice to Management
Management is great, but residents have many issues that involve management not solving anything.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Forrest Staffing Solutions (New York, NY).
Sourced by a headhunter during the summer for an internal role. not being from the outsourcing or recruiting industry, I contacted close friends of mine who have been in the staffing/recruiting industry for many years to share what they knew of the organization, if anything. This was with 3 different people and they each had virtually the identical response and each come from a different perspective within the industry. The reputation within the recruiting community remains one which is very chaotic and dysfunctional throughout it and without real and clear direction other than build sales. Before accepting the interview, i shared this with the headhunter who also confirmed this perspective but sold me on the "theory" that big changes were coming, one of the partners was moving out and things would be stable for the company moving forward. With this, I accepted the interview. During the process, I met with a number of people on the "Leadership Team" including Sales and Operations as well. There was just one person who seemed prepared and with a purpose to the interview while the others each seemed completely disinterested, uninformed, preoccupied elsewhere and what i felt was without clarity or a plan to fix the dysfunction and chaos other than convey that the one who was the cause of the issues has retired and no longer with the company. During negotiation and follow ups, i had been in interviewing within my industry (Consulting) and eventually accepted an offer which made greater sense. However, oddly a few months later, i was contacted by another recruiter for a similar role with them but referred someone I felt would be good fit. Come to find out, she had the exact same experience with them and i find out the "partner" had been gone for quite some time before i had met with them, but was still physically present at the time...so, maybe it wasn't the partner after all but the remaining "leadership". It seems as though this place could be a good fit for the right person, but no one seems to know what that person is although, they do have tenured staff from which they may want to find the common denominators for them. Everyone was nice and friendly but that doesn't cut it if you want to attract talent and be an employer of choice. Other than a strong comp, nice office space and some "friendly people" I would certainly recommend anyone to meet with them if they have the opportunity but i caution, go in with eyes open and address the reputation. Especially since i heard the word "transparency" from everyone...Good Luck to those pursuing
