    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Recruit Rooster as a contractor (Less than a year)


    1) Client focused --- Throughout my career I’ve seen teams that are (essentially) selfish, thinking mostly about what’s in it for them. Forgetting their clients. Recruit Rooster's team, however, impresses me by how far they go in the *other* direction. They bend over backwards to make sure clients are happy and getting a ton of value.

    2) Hungry --- The team here is high energy and laser focused. Ultimately, as a recruitment marketing firm, we’re on a mission to help our clients attract the best people they can so that *they* can have awesome teams too and accomplish *their* missions.

    3) Kind --- I’ve also seen teams take a lot of short cuts. This usually looks like a culture of gossip, bending the truth, unhealthy politics generally, etc. I’m impressed that here, instead, integrity is baked into culture, identity, decisions. Rocket Build leadership does an excellent job modeling true leadership — and not the kind of “leadership” that’s popular on magazine covers today. The kind of leadership they practice is all about results, and that flows out of kindness, patience, listening. Think Stephen Covey.

    4) Fun --- I enjoy working with others here. Each has their fun quirks and we joke around a lot.


    The only "cons" I see I also see everyone else. So it's not really a fair critique.

    Human potential is unlimited. We can learn from the past, from others… That means that we're all ***just getting started***. The journey is endless. Every day we can jump up, dust ourselves off, and take another step upwards.

    This looks like continual transformation of how we serve clients, how those clients serve *their* clients, and onward… Continual transformation of ourselves. Of our companies. Of our industries. Of our economies. Of our world.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Recruit Rooster (Indianapolis, IN) in December 2019.


    The full process happened in 5 steps. The first few were phone interviews followed by an onsite with the managers and another with a few team members to test culture fit. The final step was a prepared presentation with materials and guidance which helped a great deal. After this, an offer was made!
