I have been working at Softworld full-time (More than a year)
Abundance of recruiting tools/resources
Solid, proven business model - easy to buy into
Staff & Mgmt. alike are top-notch and very communicative
More opportunities to make money than I've ever had in recruiting
Work/Life balance is very fair; employee's personal lives are 100% considered
Work day ends at 6:00 PM
There's been noticeable improvement since I've started, but sales leads management needs some work
Advice to Management
Keep staying current with industry trends and continue to make employees feel that they are indeed the keystone of Softworld's success - it's working!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Softworld (Boston, MA) in October 2015.
Very long interview process - three weeks. Total hours interviewing phone and in person about 12. Softworld begins like all the others with a phone screen, then another, and then expect a good 3 hour initial face to face, which will include interviews with potential future co-workers and supervisors. If that goes well, they will interview your current employer, or employer you recently left about you - they will ask about your skills, etc.. this is not an employment check, but an interview of your employer about you. So if you are passively in the job market and do not want your employer to find out you are interviewing, pass them up, as it is a must in order to continue (as explained by the recruiter). Should that go well, you will be flown to Boston to interview for a final in person, that will be with the VP, CEO, and other employees.
Everyone there is very professional and solid at what they do, so expect superior level employees and company. The CEO is solid and many of there people are among the best. Most of all, they have a realistic culture (from what I could tell) and are very transparent - you get to interview their people as much as they get to interview you. Very refreshing change!
Pay and benefits are the industry standard - almost every company I have interviewed with offers the exact same.
During the final interview I explained I was turning down offers, but I would not continue to do so past a certain date. When that date came, I accepted another offer, I finally heared from the recruiter via email six days after the deadline I gave them. (They use outside recruiters for internal positions - or at least for this one anyway).
