I have been working at Creative Circle as a contractor

Pros

Aggressive advertising and email blasts

Cons

Poor way of doing business without any commitment from their customers or agents. Beware the "if they like it they will hire you" line. If you work for free-= that is the value people will put on it.

Most agencies that serve the creative community work on a 200% markup in general- so just know that going in.

Advice to Management

Better screening of agents would be helpful.

    I have been working at Creative Circle as a contractor

    Pros

    none. none. none. none. none

    Cons

    Beware, just like a lot of staffing agencies, they drag you on to their office for an interview, promise tons and even call your references! Then they don't respond.

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

    Pros

    They're great to have in your corner. They take into account your technical, professional, and personal qualifications when reviewing potential matches. Once you're in a contract, they're still there for you, and following up almost immediately on any questions or concerns. When your contract is almost up, they spring into action so they can find another contract for you as soon as possible.

    Cons

    As with any contract work, you sometimes have to go without work for a period of time as you search for another position. However, Creative Circle wastes no time, and sends me potential opportunities before my last day, so I can hit the ground running in my job search phase.

    Advice to Management

    Krista Fisher and Sharon Perry are fantastic! They're the two recruiters that I've worked with, and this review is based on my experience with them.
