    I worked at VonChurch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This place was a 2 hour commute for me one way, yet I still wanted to make the drive just to work with the team. The atmosphere is amazing as well. If you like Ping pong, video games, free yoga, free lunches, and most importantly a team with the best attitude then this is the place to be. Their HR Director, Cassi is incredibly supportive as well. She really takes care of everyone and tried to make the commute work for me to get me to stay. It was so difficult having to quit, but I know that if I were to ever move closer and if things change where I end up, that I would feel confident coming back to VonChurch without any hesitation. They have a very healthy team environment and that is something you can't just find anywhere.

    Cons

    The only con was that their office was not located near me, which is why I had to quit. :( That's not their fault though. I should've just moved out of the boonies to make it work. Haha :p There really aren't any cons about VonChurch. I would recommend working there for anyone who wants to get into technical recruiting.

    Advice to Management

    I like Jason Haan's management style. He knows the business and has had years of experience leading teams to know how to keep people happy and busy. He is a role model to everyone not just because he works hard and always has a plan for success, but he also respects his team's lives outside of work. He is an Iron Man Triathlon participant and is very dedicated to beating his goals both at work and on the training field. People on the team including myself look up to him. Everyone wants to continue working for someone as fun and as mentally focused as him.

    Ross Mahhaffey is also the Recruiting Director and I have worked very closely with him as a recruiter. This guy truly loves what he does. His passion is to help change the lives of our candidates looking for something better in their career. He has taught me so much on both the technical and personal side of recruiting that I feel like I can find anyone 10x better than how I used to search for candidates. He has a wealth of knowledge working on all sides of staffing (contract/perm). He knows what's going on in tech and in all the verticals that VonChurch specializes in. He's someone I look up to in this industry. He's sharp and has so much energy to figure out a solution for all of your recruiting challenges. He adds so much value to the team at VonChurch.

    My advice to management is to keep doing what you're doing, because everyone is happy at VonChurch. They're finding candidates their dream jobs while enjoying coming to work everyday.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at VonChurch in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and shortly after I was contacted for a phone screen. The screen lasted about 30 minutes and it ended with an offer for an in person interview for the following week. The in person interview was with the HR manager and someone who would be my supervisor. I was supposed to meet with a third person but that person was too busy to meet. The first conversation was relatively easy because the HR person was asking VERY general questions. The next part was with a supervisor who basically says that being a Technical Recruiter is not for everyone, and expect to fail. Also asked how I deal with failure and what be my motivation. Another question I was asked was to educate her about VonChurch. I heard back a few days later and did not get a call-back.
