    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    In office gym Great view of Hudson River Work is not stressful, generally easy and straightforward to learn Coworkers are nice Seems a good place to be if you have other things going on outside of work or are looking for something easy to do post-graduation for 1 to 2 years Benefits cover healthcare and dental, with fairly good coverage on both Location near transit hub at Fulton

    Cons

    You get ok pay for a basic office job. This isn't a career but a decent starting place if you're unsure about what to do post-graduation. The people are nice and the environment is fine.

    This title isn't what it sounds like

    May 5, 2022 - Recruiting Assistant in Cleveland, OH
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Downtown Cleveland is cool On-site gym and shower On-site employee cafeteria

    Cons

    Parking is ridiculously expensive and the buses don't always run on time. You get zero financial assistance for either even though they require you to be in the building. Company culture is non-existent. Only managers get to work from home; so if there's inclement weather you either have to risk the drive or burn a day of PTO. This position in particular is the lowest on the ladder; it's not a 'recruiting' assistant, it's just an assistant for the entire recruiting department. You do data entry and all the tedious work that no one else wants to do. Your work is emailed to you by someone else and if that person is out or is busy, you have no work coming in and have to spend the day trying to figure out how to look busy if you don't coordinate your vacation with the person who sends you work. It's work that can already mostly be done with a program, so as soon as they find a way to completely automate it, this position will be the first one to be eliminated.
