I worked at VanderHouwen full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

We just recently moved from So. California and I was worried that finding a job in the Portland area would be a problem. But within a week of working with VHA, I was able to find a job that matched my skills and most importantly in close proximity to where I live. Kudos to Gabe Hoppe who constantly communicated with me regarding work opportunities in the area of finance and assisted me in preparing for an interview with potential employers. I had signed up with other staffing agencies and it was only VHA that was responsive and was genuinely interested in my career opportunities. Thank you VHA!

Cons

There are no cons associated with this firm.

Advice to Management

Based from my experience, management already excels in the area of finding a perfect job match for job seekers, so I cannot think of any advice for improvement.

    I worked at VanderHouwen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff and support by the team that I worked with. They had great transparency with the hiring process, helped advocate a raise, and were always looking for ways to improve.

    Cons

    Challenges are not really with VanderHouwen, but with the contracting experience with Bonneville Power Administration. The organization one is hired into can't manage work or provide direct feedback to employee (like annual performance review). This makes things challenging.
