    I have been working at Global Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the better consulting companies I have worked for. Management and coworkers are respectful of each other and the work/life balance is decent for a company of this size. It felt like management had a vested interest in our success.

    Cons

    Orientation felt somewhat rushed and led to info overload. You could tell the new hires that had no prior experience were lost.

    Senior Business Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Global Resources in March 2017.

    Interview

    Email your resume, you will rec an email for a follow and initial phone screen in few days, followed by a Telephonic interview and if you are accepted you would be Offered to take a 1 week consulting course what they call "A mini-MBA" (on your own time not paid)

    Company's Directors, Executives, Recruiter would first brag about themselves for the no of years they have been there and how much they like it to get you buy into their talk with the same old marketing tactics to create a well-esteemed environment so the applicant feels it's such a well versed and organized company taking care of its employees totally manipulated.

    A Glimpse of what they offer:
    Compensation: Its 100% commissions only and what they call a W2.
    for the first 5 "Go Ahead" you will be paid $2820 for 200 hours you work which is equivalent to 5 weeks so your pay comes to $14/- an hour which is a salary of 28K a year. An intern working in school makes more than this.
    OK they mention after 5 "Go Ahead" with no mention of time after how many months etc you would make the following: $5142.50 for 200 hours worked (with multiple variation in commissionable %) which would make it too $25.71 per hour which would be a salary of a support tech making in the industry and they are hiring Senior Business Consultants for this position with 75-90% travel time required.

    Another important aspect: Travel Expense Reimbursement:
    $525 paid per week in which you have to manage your Hotel, Food, Car Rental, Incidentals & or any other travel related charges.
    They pay 30 cents a mile for traveling in your own car which is 22 cents below IRS Mileage rate.

    Benefits:
    Health Ins is offered where employee pays 75% and employer pays 25%
    They enlist Dental & Vision but there is no mention who is going to pay for that.
    They mention 401K but there is nothing enlisted how much they are going to contribute I assume nothing its the employee if they want to contribute.

    Looks like they are trying to get everything out of their employees to make the company benefit the most.
