Best Places to Work: 2014 (#48)
I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (More than a year)
Reward and recognition, Core values, consistent schedule, relationships
You have to be organized and stay on track for your goals, this is also a pro because it keeps you motivated to hit your goal.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Connor Group (Dayton, OH) in February 2016.
Like everyone else, I received a call from a recruiter and that went well, she then set up a time for me to do another phone screen which was more like a personality test. That also went well. I was then set up for an in person interview with the VP of Talent Acquisition. While I wouldn't say it that was a bad experience, it was a very rushed feeling and due to being rushed I don't think I was at my best. They are known for their very fast paced environment so maybe that was all planned but I think for an interview to be successful and also for the candidate to truly be able to show their true self, it shouldn't feel like such a rushed process. I truly don't harbor any negativity for it, I just wish I wouldn't have felt so rushed. I truly think I may have gone further in the process. One never knows!
I'm sure they will find someone to fill the position as it's a highly sought after position in my field here in Dayton but they missed out on one heck of a candiate and I have the recommendations to back that statement up!
I should note a few things that I thought were truly unique in an interview and that I really liked; 1. The first question I was asked was more personal in nature and that really impressed me. 2. I did get the impression that although they expect a lot out of their associates, they give a lot back in return, which is rare.
I only rated the overall experience negative due to the actual in person interview. If there were somewhat negative, or somewhat positive, I would have gone with one of those because it truly wasn't all negative.
