    I have been working at The Job Window full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits & job perks, no micro-managing. Unlimited growth opportunities. Flexible working environment. The team members in all departments are a pleasure to work with and are always willing to provide great feedback to better company workflows, IT systems and the overall employee working experience. Our new work space is also a big improvement. So much natural light - makes coming into work that much better every day!

    Cons

    It would be nice for HR to implement some more company wide team building activities to help open communication between individual departments and build a better sense of camaraderie.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work of showing the staff how much we value and appreciate all of what they do by implementing even better employee incentives!

    Pros

    Nothing. It is all non-sense.

    Cons

    They lie, it's all commission. The 4/5 star reviews on this page are all faked by the managers that work there.

    This is door knocking & selling.

    Advice to Management

    Close the scam company & get honest real jobs.

    I worked at The Job Window full-time

    Pros

    The atmosphere of the company was great. Upper management was very friendly and highly motivational.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The hours aren't desirable 8:45-7 M-Sat. The pay was appealing in the interview, but once you begin working you actually make about half than what they make it seem you will earn, on top of that it took three weeks to see a fairly decent pay check. Once you factor in travel time into your check, you're basically getting paid minimum wage. I made more money as a part time sales associate. Overall the company seems like a good place to work for initially, but its just a facade.

    Pros

    NONE there is NOTHING good about this company. They lure people in thinking that they are about to get entry level jobs!

    Cons

    This career site is a RIP OFF! All it does is HIRE ANYONE who applys to walks around in Sams Club trying to get people to buy shittttt. Oh and it 100% commission!

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying telling people that this is a marketing or public relations job!

    I have been working at The Job Window full-time

    Pros

    - Can openly share and bring ideas to team members and to management, and really work together to create more efficient company procedures and practices.

    - Everyone is together instead of separated into cubicles which provides more of an opportunity to work together to collectively achieve goals.

    - Advancement based on merit and leadership vs. seniority.

    - Great staff members that make coming into work easy and fun.

    - Great benefits package.

    Cons

    There aren't many, but could use more team outings - they're fun!

    Good communications are the cornerstone of a successful company. If you do have something you'd like to communicate, don't hesitate to get in touch.

    Pros

    Over the year I’ve been here the company has grown a lot and evolved to better suit the needs of our clients and candidates. I like that when someone has ideas about how to make things run more smoothly, management listens and things actually change. As the company’s grown I’ve been getting more responsibilities. I was hired in a junior position and was promoted first to team manager then account manager. I think that’s the greatest benefit to being part of a growing company

    Cons

    I don't have any cons. At first I wasn't making as much as I was hoping but my pay has increased with each promotion and now I'm where I wanted to be.

    Advice to Management

    Management here works with an open door policy. I've seen how that translates into more streamlined, smoother systems. I don't have advice for change. I'm grateful they listen.

    Pros

    My job is fun. I get to spend my day researching and writing about topics I'm interested in. I feel like the things I write about are helpful and informative so I feel good about what I'm doing. Management is encouraging and supportive and gives me a lot of independence to come up with topics to cover.

    Cons

    It's a great learning experience, but the company is still pretty small so there isn't really too much room for advancement in this position.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been great. My opinions are listened to and respected. I like the people I work with. I would say keep on doing what you're doing.
