    I have been working at Creative Circle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing culture, fun environment, supportive team. This has been one of the best opportunities I have had as a young person in the workplace. Great benefits as well, and our commission structure is higher than our staffing competitors. I also admire the fact that our company promotes work life balance, and encourages us to take time off to travel and holds fitness competitions, etc. I am so thankful to be a part of the team.

    Cons

    Sitting for most of the day is always hard, but that's just what comes with an office environment. Hopefully we can get stand up desks soon.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive, fun atmosphere! Really happy to be a part of this team.

    Pros

    Very supportive environment for women. Management strives to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Have lost some of their mojo since they were acquired (especially around culture), but still very good on balance.

    I worked at Creative Circle part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None I can think of.

    Cons

    A terrible track record finding applicable work. Very poor at communication, and when they do communicate, they seem rushed, not willing to actually discuss.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your current recruiters, find people that care, and can do their job!

    Pros

    Cute employees, clean office, nothing more.

    Cons

    They suck at replying to your emails, reeturning your calls. They invite you in for an 'interview', saying you need to dress well and have everything ready, forcing you to complete multiple forms before coming in, sharing your social security number and all of your personal info, only to be 'interviewed' for 5 minutes just to get more of your info, then they kick you out with a pathetic 'thanks'. Then I emailed them day later about the status, but no reply for a week.

    Get out. This company is more of a hassle. There's no reason to get yourself in more chains.

    I have been working at Creative Circle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well, the few people I talk to on the phone seem nice

    Cons

    Never once, no matter how many times I have signed up with them, talked to them or the hundreds of times I have submitted resumes to jobs both full-time and contract with them have I ever gotten an interview OR job through this company. What do they do?

    Advice to Management

    Get people actually advocating for the folks who submit resumes. I submit resume after resume to jobs I am more than qualified for - and nothing EVER happens. Ever.

    I have been working at Creative Circle (Less than a year)

    Pros

    IDK...Can you tell me? Because I do not see it. Would prefer to get a legit answer from someone who has worked with them.

    Cons

    Honestly feel that is not an agency for actual professionals because I can not take them seriously. I just laugh when I see job posting by them because I know they will not do any follow-up call or anything. There were jobs I knew I have confidence in applying for 120%. I called and a rep. said that the last job they received was the first of June of 2018. During that process I knew I applied to well over 45+. I would consider them a slum lord agency......that's it

    Advice to Management

    Create an actual team and not a computer generated system with only a staff of only 10 in-house employees. It's bad enough people are seeking jobs but just to post them with 0 is trash.

    Pros

    The people I initially spoke to were friendly and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    After your interviews, they give you a rundown as to what to expect. They make it seem like they will be actively helping you find a job which is not the case. It's been months and I've heard nothing back, and all the jobs I've applied for(which I'm 100% qualified for) have zero responses. It seems like a nice idea but I don't see myself ever getting a job through here. I recommend doing the work yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Give feedback to the people you want to work with. A lot of us have years of valuable experience and could really be an asset. Instead, we will have to find jobs ourselves and you lose out on money.
