    I worked at Search Wizards full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. I was always out at one company on contract, but it was always made clear to me that I was a FTE of Search Wizards. Our consulting concierge Dan was always there when I needed him. Just a great overall place to work!

    Cons

    If I have to stretch to say anything "con" like... While they did offer vacation and sick time, it seemed to take a while to accrue and it didn't roll over, so if you wanted to take vacation in Jan or Feb, for instance it was without pay. (much appreciated the amount we had though.) Also, any time off for holidays that you were contracted out to (at least the company I was contracted out to) were unpaid, so there were 10 days a year that I either had to use my vacation time for, or take without pay. Nice to have them off though, otherwise!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    I have had good experience with Search Wizards right from the beginning of my contract till the end. They resolve any issues very fast and are always reachable. Overall a very positive experience and would recommend.

    Cons

    Negotiate the hourly rate before the contract begins, because afterwards its a problem.

    They are truly the best when it comes to taking care of their employees and contractors. They have the best customer service and really care about each and every person.

Outstanding level of professionalism.

    Pros

    As an internal recruiter you can work from home. As an external contractor working for a client, the recruiters are very supportive and the team is great at onboarding and paperwork after hire.

    Cons

    There is favoritism. The internal team is a small team, the culture of the company feels like either you are in the circle of friends or the other recruiters will make sure to make you feel uncomfortable, and abrasive at times. No room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism. Stop micro-managing so much and trust your recruiters when it comes to submits and recommendations for positions. Management needs a class on leadership. Communication is very unprofessional and abrasive.

    Pros

    I have worked with Search Wizards on contract for almost three years. I am a senior recruiter with over twenty years of experienced, and I was very happy with the experienced. They negotiated a fair rate for me, always paid on time, were good with their communication, and checked in with me monthly. A professional, cleanly run organization.

    Cons

    None come to mind. I was treated very well for the three years that I worked with them. Very happy with my experience with them

    I have been working at Search Wizards full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment - everyone is virtual
    Great team - calls everyday so you don't feel left in the dark, fun conversations, good vibes all around.
    Great clients = great opportunities to make more than your base
    I get to hang out with my dog all day
    I recruit recruiters, which is fun! I love recruiting for my own passion and industry!

    None; the team recognizes hard work and dedication. If you don't mind not being in an office everyday and love recruiting, this is a great role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work - I enjoy my job for the first time in a while!
