    Pros

    I've been working at AVID full time and I am so happy that I decided to join this team! The interview process was pretty quick: had a phone screen and then was asked to come in for an interview and was offered the job a week or so later. During the period between being interviewed and after I was given the offer, there was complete transparency and communication between the manager and myself. I really appreciated that since I had another offer on the table and was going through deciding factors. They were nothing but patient and excited for me to join the team - as was I! All in all, it's a great place to get your foot in the door and really grow your skills while being in a friendly and hardworking environment.

     This isn't your typical staffing company where it's cut throat and everyone steps all over each other. AVID is a genuine company where everyone is helpful and wants each person to succeed - no games.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons except that the recruiting industry can be hard itself. If you're a hard worker, have an open mind and a willingness to learn and accept both success and loss - then this is the place for you. If you can't handle that, then this industry is not what you're looking for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with the fluid communication between employees and clients!

    I worked at AVID Technical Resources full-time

    Pros

    Good place to work when you first get out of college, you work with nice people and it teaches you a lot about hard work, diligence, and really sets you up for a career past staffing and recruiting.

    Cons

    There isn't any opportunity for a career growth. This is true not only at Avid TR but throughout the staffing and recruiting industry. People who are young in their career like to see advancement and career opportunity, and there isn't much opportunity if any to grow here.
    There are long hours, they can pay off because you have uncapped commission, but there is slim to none in regards to working from home, vacation time, any sort of flexibility.
    The benefits here are terrible, no 401K match, you pay a ton and a half for health insurance, no cell phone reimbursement, 10 vacation days. You can find MUCH better benefits elsewhere.
    HUGE turnover at the company between offices being shut down, valuable people being fired, and people quitting on their own. There is a huge turnover in general in the industry but this was surprising.

    Advice to Management

    The "transparency" at Avid is non-existant. You keep everything behind closed doors . There's a reason why 2017 there was such a huge turnover. Employees like the feel valued, especially after the long hours and hard work they dedicate to Avid.

    Pros

    AVID Technical Resources is a great place to work. Everyone here has the same goal, to find the best candidate for the right job. All of this is based on our ability to listen to our candidates to understand what they want to do, which industry they want to work in, what culture best fits their talent and where they see themselves later on in their career.

    Our leadership's dedication to instill AVID's core values of Hard-Work, Dedication, Communication, Honesty, Integrity and Passion really sets all of AVID's employees up for success now and further on in their career.

    Cons

    Tough Industry is really the only downside but having a work hard play hard mentality is what makes working in a tough industry worth it.
