    Pros

    The team at Liaison is a group of fun, diligent, and straightforward people that do everything they can to find the right job for the right person. There's not a single opportunity they've ever sent my way that wasn't suited to my skills, interests, and needs. The company is truly heads and tails above any other recruiting or job placement organization you could ever work for.

    Scott and Sam are wonderful to work with, and they each take time to make sure you see opportunities that are relevant to your goals.

    Cons

    I know it seems suspicious, especially on Glassdoor...but I legitimately have nothing bad to say about Liaison.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Liaison Creative + Marketing.

    Interview

    This was the most unprofessional interview experience I've ever had. I applied for the job and had an initial phone screening, basic salary requirements were discussed, was told they could be met, and proceeded with the interview process. I had several skype interviews with the contact at the client end, a two hour panel interview, and then another one on one with the client lead, and was told during the panel process directly that I had really good experience. Shortly after the first few interviews I had another follow up with Liaison and they told me there were going to be a few more interviews. I had another very informal one on one with the client and was told several days later that not only did I not get the job but that the scope had changed, they would not be able to meet my minimum salary requirements, and that my experience scope was too wide for what is now a job with a narrower focus and I'm effectively overqualified for it and now a bad match. Not getting a job is one thing but this is a total "bait and switch" tactic, being told initially my salary requirements can be met and that my experience is a match and then AFTER the extremely lengthy interview process being told that neither of those things is the case. My time is valuable too and I don't feel that it was respected at all.

    While the client bait and switching the job scope after the interview process was frustrating and bad enough as it is, Liaison too had extremely poor communication and updates during the interview process were sparse and untransparent. The day of the final interview, which was several weeks into the process, I was told by my contact at Liaison that a decision would be made that day and I would find out the interview results soon without being kept in suspense. Three days passed, no notice came, and my calls and emails that I had to send from my end since the agency couldn't be bothered to contact me went unresponded to. Eventually I heard back from someone at Liaison saying he was busy with meetings and couldn't get back to me in a timely fashion, and also that the terms had changed and I was now "overqualified" for a job I was previously told I was a good fit for. I have meetings all week too and if I dropped the ball or left someone hanging it would never be a valid excuse for me, so the fact that Liaison apparently thinks this sort of thing is an acceptable way to treat people is totally unprofessional and inexcusable.

    All in all my experience felt like such a "bait and switch" interview process and waste of time that it's definitely soured me on any interaction with Liaison in the future. I still check job postings and occasionally see things I feel I might be a good fit for but if I see the job poster is Liaison I'll make a note to just not waste my time applying and keep looking elsewhere.
