I have been working at Sevenstep full-time (Less than a year)
Quite frankly, I was a little scared to join the Denver team based on the reviews I saw on glass door. Sounded like there was a lot of turnover and management would always be looking over your shoulder. So far I have come to really enjoy working here. I couldn't get a job fresh out of college and went to work at a place where my degree was wasted away. I was stuck in a hole and had no way go get out of it. I was micromanaged and cursed out by customers almost daily. Thankfully SSR gave me the opportunity to work for them and I have shown them what I can do. I do not feel as if I am micromanaged at all. It seems like some of the reviews have come from individuals who were babied most of their lives. If you were raised to work hard and not complain about everything then I would recommend this company. Of course I agree with mostly everyone else before me about it being a job to start you career. Can't see myself here past 3 years but it is possible. You get out what you put in. This job is about relationships as is any job. Some reviews said that if you aren't liked you dont get promoted..... Duh.... That goes for any company. If you make your boss's job difficult then why would they like you. If you make your boss's job easier then they like you. Life lesson right there folks. This job does fit with my personaloty as well, I am very sarcastic and don't take anything seriously so I never have issues with anyone. I do agree that handling everything that is thrown at you is a challenge but once you are helping other... You get promoted. Team managers seem to listen to their recruiters needs pretty decently.
Yea the pay isn't great, but those 40k-50k a year jobs we all dreamed about right out of college are usually given to people whos daddys "know someone". Yes you start from the bottom but that is reality. Almost everywhere you go you will start at the bottom and work your way up. Great job out of college to teach you some professionalism and how to work hard and be productive.
Sucks that you must be a recruiter for a year before you get promoted to senior. Preformance reviews are only once a year and your pay percentage increase decreases as you are promoted higher. A few things that exist in most companies that I don't exactly like but you must prove your worth by being a consistent producer for the company. One last thing, I have seen what seems to be signs of managers slowly removing recruiters from accounts and Maybe trying to get them to leave the company by being difficult. Not positive but that seems to be the case. If that starts happening to you at least you know to start looking for another job.
Advice to Management
Maybe change that performance review to twice a year instead of every April. Lower the percentage increase to 10% and have them every April and October or something.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sevenstep (Denver, CO).
The interview process took three months. They needed new people for contracts that they didn't have yet, so they were interviewing a ton of people and then just waiting on the contracts. There were three phone interviews and two in person.
