    I worked at Lucas Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly, supportive staff (for the most part) with a "family feel" atmosphere. Cannot speak highly enough of the CEO, she is the best there is! The corporate team really does their best to socialize with the recruiters. which really helps to lessen the typical "divide" between the two worlds.

    Cons

    The marketing team. They have been improving, however, the CMO is, in my opinion, not the best fit for this company. For the majority of my time there, the marketing team never took the time to speak to the recruiters to actually determine what THEY needed. Like I said, they are improving in that aspect. However, the CMO himself still doesn't take the time to get to know the recruiters, other than his random "pop ins" where he thought that saying hello a few times a year was enough. He also does not seem to take care of his own team very well.. Morale is extremely important and it's a shame to see such a wonderful company with so much potential to not be able to reach that potential due to their marketing. The new members that they added to the team have definitely been helping to improve that tremendously! Also, the rest of the corporate team does more than enough to make up for his lack of leadership/team morale as they are all very friendly and more than willing to lend a hand!

    Advice to Management

    Some of the greatest people that I had the opportunity to work with! I only hope that you continue to flourish in your careers and wish you all the best!

    Andi - you rock!

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Lucas Group (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Standard interview process meeting one on with in a closed space one on one. We discussed past jobs I have had, and what I am looking for in my new role. He described what Lucas Group offered and what a day looked like for a recruiter and what the pay structure was for a recruiter there.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked my age during the interview and once this question was asked this person knew right away that he should not have asked this question. He said that he meant to ask what age range I was, which is not better. I used to interview people for jobs at my last role so I know that is it totally wrong to to. I am shocked that a person in a partner position at this company would ask this question.   1 Answer
