    I have been working at AltisHR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    AltisHR has a collaborative work environment, proven system, dynamic people, awesome location, training provided, positive & motivating, great incentives - TEAM TIME

    Cons

    It's hard to say anything bad! It is demanding, you need to be flexible with your time - because deadlines must be met. It is a fast-paced environment, never enough hours in the day!

    Pros

    They actively e-mail you with opportunities, and contact you via phone. They dont hold it against you if the opportunity isn't the right one for you. Been working with them for a year now, and never had an issue in regards to pay/hours. They also check in on you periodically to see if theyre are any concerns you might have at the workplace.

    Cons

    I cannot see a con to this company, they help you find employment at a fair wage. And keep on going relations between themselves and you open.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what your doing, its great work and shows with the placements youve found for myself.

    Pros

    AltisHR offers top notch training that sets consultants up for incredible success. I owe my career growth and development to this brand that has helped many like myself flourish personally and professionally. Never have I ever and probably will never come across a company culture that is so genuine, rewarding and passionate. On the service side - they hold each and every practice to the highest importance ensuring that client service is always seamless. I will miss the Altis team dearly.

    Cons

    No office in the Unites States.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing - the structure, training and true care for the team really sets the Altis team apart from any other staffing agency out there!

    Pros

    altisHR is a place where you can learn, grow and push yourself to your full potential. They create a work environment that allows you to be successful and they are there to celebrate that success with you. Here are my top pros:

    - Strong management team & CEO
    - Lots of personal growth potential
    - Supportive work environment
    - Great commission structure
    - Fun & entertaining work culture

    Cons

    If you are looking for a 9:00am to 5:00pm type of job, this is not the right place for you. This job requires you to put in extra hours, but you will see the benefits of your hard work in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for your continuous encouragement, support and help. I appreciate that you are always there to listen, make suggestions and assist with our growth.

    I have been working at AltisHR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    AltisHR is the most incredible place to work. I've never had such a positive experience in the workplace. Our team is comprised of sales driven, happy and positive people. We all work as a team to help candidates get placed in jobs that are the best fit for them. There is a great balance between recruitment and sales. This balance allows consultants to understand their clients needs and find the best candidate for their role. Management has created incentives to motivate consultants to do the best they can on a day to day basis and ensure that each employee is successful in their job.

    Cons

    If you're looking for a slow paced work environment this probably isn't the best fit for you. Consultants need to be driven and have the ability to multitask.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! The Mississauga team wouldn't be the same without you

    I worked at AltisHR full-time

    Pros

    I use to work at AltisHR as a Recruitment and Placement Consultant for almost a year, and have nothing but positive things to say about the company. The corporate culture is fun, has a very work hard play hard mentality. All of my co-workers were extremely inclusive, and always willing to lend a helping hand. AltisHR has "team time" every Friday, which really helps you connect with the other members of your team, and relax after a busy week!

    The company is well managed and structured, they train their employees extremely well with interactive videos, role playing, mock interviews, one on one training and visual presentations to keep you engaged every step of the way. In addition, if you find there are areas where you need additional training - managers and other co-workers are always extremely supportive!

    Other Pros:
    > Uncapped Commission- SOO much earning potenital
    > Last Friday of the Month Casual Friday's
    > Fun Competitions- including large company wide shopping Spree's, sales blitz's and team challenges
    > Fun- Upbeat Environment
    > Individual Office's- that are beautifully designed
    > Team Time Every Friday end of day- with some bubbly!
    > Great Location in the centre of the city
    > Great internal database
    > Continuous training and education
    > Great benefits packages
    > Ethical and reputable company
    ** Great Managers, CEO and Team of People***

    Cons

    The recruiting field in general is a tough industry at first. You have to be willing to work hard, and put yourself out there! Your first year at AltisHR is the growing year, you are learning so many new things and really building your foundation to become a great recruiter. Success takes time at first, so be patient - use your resources and keep trying- you will see results.

    I left due to my interests lying in a completely different field, and had nothing to do with the company or the role itself. It is a fantastic opportunity, if you like to be rewarded for your hard work and be with a fun company- Altis is the place for you.

    BEFORE APPLYING- Cons:
    > Have to be willing to work hard
    > Industry is always changing- so you have to be adaptive
    > Requires resilience, persistence, and patience
    > Team Player- no cattiness is tolerated here
    > Sales and Metric Driven Individual

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, you really do help each one of your recruiters feel special and heard.

    I worked at AltisHR full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really great individuals at this company. Even the CEO and executives seem like great people, but man: it's a super uncomfortable place to work.

    Cons

    They seem to distrust their employees and expect infinite unpaid overtime. They don't pay well, but, hey, they have beer.

    Non-managers do not have access to the Internet at their workstation. You are not allowed to check your cell phone and even while working unpaid overtime, your supervisor will time your breaks. They seem to subscribe to an outdated punitive work place culture.

    Altis/Excel say that they have a "work hard/play hard" environment, but it just feels like a sad and desperate place.

    Advice to Management

    You might be amazed how productive employees can be if you treat them like adults. Just give it a try.
