Cons

The CRM/ATS is by far the worst but… everything has trades offs and it’s manageable for the most part, especially if your running novel research and sourcing strategies.

  1. Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Witt/Kieffer (Oak Brook, IL)

    Interview

    I spent about 4 hours on the phone with various members of the team in progressive levels of leadership.

    The interviews were standard. The interviewers were pleasant and forthcoming.

    My issue is that after 4 hours of interviews, I never received a response. I reached out about 2 weeks after my final interview, requesting feedback and/or a final determination but never received a response.

    I think it's bad form to have someone go through that many interviews and then never respond to their requests for a disposition.
    Interview

    Most questions were subjective and related to my personal recruiting style and professional goals.
