    I have been working at Sage Recruiting full-time

    Pros

    I have been working for Sage since the beginning of this year and this has been one of my greatest experiences yet. The CEO takes time from her schedule daily to not only mentor & coach, but to provide technical training as well. I do not come from a technical background, so initially, everything seemed like a foreign language combined with acronyms but I am much more comfortable thanks to her help. She mentors & coaches not only her own team but others in the industry as well. She empowers her team to try to do things our own way and will only intervene when we ask for assistance. Working from home, I have the autonomy to work around my schedule, and she has always encouraged this. Her relationships with her clients and candidates are incredible and are long-lasting. She has a tenacity that you don't see very often and her energy is contagious!

    Cons

    My face will hurt from laughing so hard after a long day with her!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing & never change yourself!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sage Recruiting (Toronto, ON).

    Interview

    I actually have interviewed twice with this organization. The first time it was a very short conversation with the founder, which lasted a couple of minutes. I had recently arrived to Canada and my english skills were weak which I understood.

    I really liked the company so after a couple of years of experience I saw they posted a role and I was very excited to apply again!

    The founder contacted me right away and we booked a time to chat.
    This has been hands down the most horrible and unprofessional interview I had ever had. I actually mentioned to her that we had chatted in the past and that I had always liked the company and the tech training they provide for tech recruiters. She told me she remembered me and told me my english had improved a lot, which I appreciated.

    Later she asked asked me why I moved from the 1st organization I worked with in Canada, by that time I was working on my second employment in Canada, I explained that the compensation I had at the first was very challenging for me and this organization offered me a 25% increment. She later asked me how many placements I had done and I went on and told her the ones that I had had, she started asking me for the exact amount on commission that I received for them. I explained the ones that I was able to received the payment and the other I told her I actually lost those commissions due to my change to the second employer, she started asking me, why would I leave those commissions, that it didn't make sense and so on. Basically she didn't believe me and she went above and beyond to make sure I noticed. I explained that the process with the second organization had been quite long and in the process I had closed some candidates and it takes time to collect the commissions, however, she told me it didn't make sense.

    Also, in my resume, I had listed some of the clients I had been working with. She asked me why would I list the clients that it was highly unprofessional and she should contact my ex employer to let them know I was listing some of their clients on my resume. That she would wo and contact them to start working with them.

    She made me feel terrible! Like I had done something extremely wrong. I told her that I did not see it that was as my resume was to share with potential employers who would like to know what kind of recruitment I've done. That those clients were there for her to approach but it wouldn't necessarily mean they will want to work with her.

    The interview was a terrible experience and I couldn't believe she almost made me cry.

    Obviously the interview was not successful for neither parties and I was quite disappointed about it.

    She was rather unprofessional and aggressive
