I worked at Hudson Advisors full-time (More than a year)
Great experience, and does wonders on resume. Get to learn from among the brightest talent in real estate in DFW.
Lots of hours make work/life balance difficult. No job security, they have no problem with massive layoffs if funds are running dry.
Advice to Management
Treat employees as people vs tools.
Applied via LinkedIn shortly after it posted. Over the next few days, it was whored out to every recruiter and job board surely resulting in 100s of resumes. About 2 weeks later, I received a form email with a questionnaire about my qualifications which I promptly returned. Another week went by so I followed up that they received it. No reply. Another 2 weeks or so go by and I get another form email asking to pick a time for a phone interview. Again, I promptly respond. A day or 2 before the interview, I reach out again asking for confirmation. I get yet another form email with the interview details. I know am convinced I am responding with an HR Bot as opposed to an actual human.
The phone interview with the hiring manager goes well. We come from similar backgrounds, both with many years of experience and the technical questions are a breeze. The half hour conversation goes to an hour and he leaves with "we will set up face to face interviews for the week after New Year's."
The week of New Year's comes and I reach out to HR to follow up once again. A week passes before I receive yet another form email. This time saying "Thanks for your time but it's been determined you don't meet the minimum job requirements."
Huh? What?!?! How did you not know this when I sent my resume? Or when I filled out the questionnaire or when I had my phone interview? It's one thing to be passed over for a better candidate. It's entirely another to waste my time and energy on a role I never even was being considered for. It's beyond unprofessional and a huge red flag as to what work life would be like at Hudson Advisors. Perhaps a blessing in disguise....
