      Forged some fantastic relationships over the years, and did very well financially (most of my tenure).


      The best way to describe Monster? They are the Titanic with a golfball-sized hole in its hull. It's taken quite some time to bring down a ship that big, but they have been sinking for years and they've finally sunk. Morale is at an all-time low, and even management is just going through the motions and biding their time to get out. I was there for 10+ years, and knew a lot of people (still do). Literally EVERY SINGLE person I know there was either recently laid off or is frantically looking for a new job. All the new IBM management that came into the company in 2015 either quit or was fired, as yet again it was a bunch of cowboys who thought they could turn things around (and then quickly realized it was hopeless and abandoned ship). So, to anyone considering working here - would you voluntarily get onto a ship that's headed towards the lip of Niagara Falls? Would you run into an empty, burning building? Of course not, and don't take a job here either. As other reviewers have said, from a sales role perspective, don't even THINK that you're going to be successful here - you won't be. The company is broken and dead in their space. Every employee at every single level is just waiting for another opportunity and then will leave. The people who aren't leaving are simply the hold-outs that are comfortable collecting a check and will need to be dragged out when the time comes. The company was acquired for a paltry $429M, a fraction of what the company was worth in its day. Most people in the know have a hunch that it will be dismantled soon, as there's no way Randstad is trying to breathe life into a dying, non-profitable brand (they bought it for its technology and database of resumes). Oh, and did I mention that in Q1, 2017, they completely screwed every single sales person that over-achieved their quotas? (there weren't many of them). They hid behind a caveat in their comp plan that allowed them to cap payouts, and by doing so they absolutely robbed their long-time, hard working employees of money that they'd earned. The verbiage in their comp plan technically made it legal, but boy was it immoral and wrong. The worst part is that they dangled a carrot in front of many of them, giving false hope that they'd eventually get paid out 'if they just wait a little longer,' but no one was paid was was rightfully owed to them. It was just a horrible ploy to avoid a mass exodus. Their senior leadership really put the 'Monster' in with that sleazy move.

        Nice office; nice coworkers (for the most part).


        I was unofficially promoted and took on a management position without a single pay increase for almost a year. Never got a formal, sit down review. Never got any praise. Never got any bonuses (even though they were promised to us). Never got the support or resources. Let me be clear here. I also went to Monster's HR department to ask questions regarding my employment, pending raise & promotion, etc. They told me to email the HR Business Partner. So I did. She then forwarded my confidential emails over to my direct boss and director of the department I worked under. I'm confused. How is this allowed? No one cares and no one supports you, no matter if it's HR or your direct manager. No events, no incentive, no reviews, no promotions, no reward. There's nothing. Here's a question: How can, the website and company that is supposed to help people 'find better,' be such a failure to its own employees?

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      Do you have to interview again if you didn’t get the job the first time but the HM wants you to apply to the additional positions that opened up a few months after?

      I made changes to my resume and would like some feedback and/or constructive criticism. Please don’t be mean… the job search is hard enough already (ex- “this resume sucks” is not helpful 😂). I applied to 40 jobs today using this version (adding/removing key words, technology platforms, and phrases to match job descriptions, but overall the same resume) 😬 Really hoping to see an uptick in interview requests soon. 🤞🏻

      I am having the most important interview of my life in a few hours. High-end position. But I am stressed because my situation doesn't allow me to lose this chance. Does anyone have tips about what to say when they ask you how you process in sales to seal deals? I personally love the spin method but it is so instinctive for me that I struggle to describe it in a correct way for an interview and I lose my words...
