I worked at IT Trailblazers full-time
Good work environment that is conducive to personal and career growth. Company growth story is very inspirational. Flexible schedule and great colleagues.
None that I can really think of aside from the fact that pay could be better.
Advice to Management
Management seemed somewhat disorganized but was really helpful in general.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at IT Trailblazers in September 2015.
Was contacted by a recruiter about 3 weeks ago for a permanent position. Filled out a form about the pay rate and other typical questions. Sent the form with my resume. 2 days later, I was told that the hiring company's outsourcer wanted to interview me by phone and that I would receive a call "today". After 2 more days, I contacted the recruiter and asked if an appointment could be set up. Heard nothing. A week went by and I received a phone call and an email from the recruiter - inquiring whether I had heard from the hiring company's outsourcer. I said "no". Today, I received an email which stated that the hiring company's outsourcer had interviewed me already because I had applied thru another source. But it's not true. A month earlier, i had received an email from a different recruiter with IT Trailblazers. But I did not reply or speak with the recruiter, because I wasn't looking at the time. My job field is very specialized and I often receive multiple inquiries about the same position from various recruiters. I know better than to use different recruiters for the same role. In this case, only IT Trailblazers had contacted me. Someone was not telling the truth, either the recruiter for IT Trailblazers or the screener for the hiring company. I am more concerned about the possibility that my resume was submitted by the first recruiter, without my permission - or that someone did a phone screen, using my name. It was a total waste of time. Update on Oct 2, 2015: I received the same recruiting email today - from the same "recruiter". It didn't take long to figure out that my resume and personal information was being harvested via Job Diva, an applicant tracking system and subscription portal for employers and recruiters for contract jobs. 1. The “recruiter” was not authorized to recruit for the position. I was actually contacted by a "harvester". 2. A harvester identified me as a targeted candidate, by scraping my resume from a job search website. 3. My specialized skill set was matched, by scraping a position from an employer's career website. 3. The harvester contacted me and deceived me into filling out a form which would confirm a requested salary and provide permission for my resume to be submitted to the employer for a permanent position. 4. The form was used to provide private data which would not be included in my resume - and is searchable via Job Diva. The form contains personal information which targets my age, salary range, education - which should not be stored in any database or email system without my explicit permission.
