    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Altis Recruitment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The office is nice, happy hour on Friday

    Cons

    I have never been more micro managed in a role! If you are hitting or exceeding your targets it won’t matter, if you have not hit a certain number of calls or e-mails. You are pushed to contact clients and candidates that do not want to be contacted just to hit metrics. Management is extremely condescending and only wants you to do things their way, even if it is proven unsuccessful. The work environment is very toxic and you are required to work crazy amounts of overtime without being compensated fairly. They get their staff to come on here and write good reviews to increase their rating. Managements/ HRs responses to the negative reviews should tell you everything you need to know about this company.

    Cons

    Micromanagement Poor Management and Leadership communication High-school Environment You need to kiss leadership to be liked No room for growth Validation is required by most of the management. Need to be reminded they are doing a good job by reminding themselves. Pretend to care about the candidates. Management's communication is fake, they will talk behind your back about personal matters

    Altis Recruitment Response

    April 19, 2021Communications Team

    Thank you for your post – which looks a lot like a former post of yours. This is a false post. You state that you are a current employee – and that we have a nice office, and yet we have not been working on-site for over one year. You note that there is a high-school environment and micro-management, again, in this off-site context, the environment is held on video conference and micromanagement is not possible. Our employee surveys are showing the opposite of your statements – for example, many of our team members are taking an active part in our Career Pathing, and growing consistently. We have been engaging in active surveys with our candidates on assignment, and our scores are far superior to industry standards. We follow up with candidates who express a concern about finding work, and take steps to remedy what’s possible in their job search. The last point demonstrates that this is a competitor or very disgruntled person making false claims – why disparage an ethical firm? We have never provided cash, and we do not make “side deals”. We serve hundreds of clients in the staffing space with professionalism, clarity and ethics. If you wish to have a conversation, please reach out to any of our team. We’re here in support of our clients, our candidates and our community. Competitors seeking to be disparaging is not required.
