Best Places to Work: 2014 (#48)
I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (More than 5 years)
I am the Senior Payroll and Benefits Administrator for The Connor Group. I have worked for the company for nearly five years. Like a majority of the reviews here, I can attest that The Connor Group is a fantastic and rewarding place to work. The Owner, Larry Connor, truly believes that “PEOPLE COUNT.” So much so, that it is one of our Core Values. And, it is a common theme throughout all levels of the organization. I see every day how each person of the organization is truly valued. Whether it be the fantastic pay, great benefits, extensive training program, advancement opportunities, or reward and recognition, each person is taken care of. And unlike other organizations, Partnership is not limited to just the Executives. Every person within the organization has the opportunity to become a Partner.
I saw a review on here that claims the company hires only women or only men for certain positions. Or, they say we are not a very diverse organization, or that we don’t have maintenance techs over the age of 40. It is time for me to set the record straight and let you know that those comments are absolutely false. In my position with the company, I see the actual data every day. As just one example, I can tell you for a fact that we have nearly 30 techs – both male and female - over the age of 40. I am proud to know that we hire the best qualified candidate for each and every position, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, or any other trait. Those things don’t matter to us. The person’s qualifications, their propensity to follow processes and procedures, and their ability to do the best job possible is what matters.
I hope you find this review informative. If you are looking for a GREAT organization to find a REWARDING career with, check out The Connor Group. You will be happy you did.
The only thing I can say is if you are looking for a place to work where you don’t have to apply yourself, you don’t have to strive to “Do The Right Thing” and you don’t plan on staying at for a long time, The Connor Group is not the place for you. The Connor Group is not just a stop by and stay for a while kind of company, it is a great place to build a rewarding career.
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Connor Group.
The Interview process was very detailed. I like the fact that they take such pride in finding the right candidates. I had no problem going through a lengthy process because I truly knew exactly what I was getting into. The process started with a typical phone screen, a structured interview followed by three in person interviews and was concluded with a shadow day. They were willing to work around my schedule and very communicative about all steps involved. Not your typical process but one I truly enjoyed. By the end of the interviewing experience I knew exactly what the role would entail and had exposure to alot of different leaders from within the organization.
