    I have been working at Huntel Global for less than a year

    Pros

    Very good management and team spirit. Always very positive and encouraging. Zero egos or arrogance. All working for each other and striving to achieve one thing. Company has big growth plans and will be a very strong force in the future.

    Cons

    Growing fast but lacking in some infrastructure and support

    Advice to Management

    Push to get more admin and infrastructure support so that we can do even better than we currently are. Keep up the great work.

    I worked at Huntel Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Huntel Global provides great platform for IT and Engineering recruiters. I worked with Huntel for close to 1.5 years and had the opportunity to work with some fantastic clients on varied positions. I would like to give a special shout out to the team at Huntel. Everyone is extremely helpful, courteous, approachable, professional - simply great. The main focus for all the recruiters is on providing top notch level of...

    Cons

    It is not the most technologically advanced place. There are no tools other than LinkedIn recruiter to help on a regular basis. Also, there are very few subject matter related trainings that are provided to the staff.

    Advice to Management

    I know that there are a lot of proposed changes and I feel they are all in the right direction. Please continue to bring around those changes and upgrades. Huntel has the talent and attitude to deliver and perform beyond expectations.

    I worked at Huntel Global full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    HR Process is good. Receptionist is friendly

    Cons

    horrible workplace. The promise that they have lots cllient requirements while majking an offer and make the person join. After that the recruiter is asked to make cold calls since the department has no work. Finally they let people go since they have no business.

    Advice to Management

    No clarity, false promises. They are degrading the name of drake

    I have been working at Huntel Global

    Pros

    I appreciate that an online venue such as Glass Door is available for people to express their thoughts and experiences regarding present and past employers. It 's often a great source of information for potential job seekers and can often be a catalyst for change within a company. That understood I make reference to the some of the negative experiences that people had posted regarding Huntel Global prior to October...

    Pros

    There is a lot of support from the team and management. Recruitment is a tough job and individuals who like to network and speak to others can do really well in this field. Management gave me tips and advice on how to speak with people of all levels and how to network efficiently and effectively. Working here has given me great insight into my interpersonal skills and has allowed me to grow my own contacts into a great...

    Cons

    1) I came across a lot of internal gossip and bureaucracy. The MD is constantly under the gun from Drake for giving his staff internal incentives and perks, he gives back to his staff quite a bit and I for one am appreciative and I know it makes me work harder. 2) From the reviews posted I note the gossip continues..... Please let me enlighten you to the REAL working world: When your employer asks you to do something...

    Advice to Management

    I think it will be very difficult to bring individuals into this field unless they are already a recruiter or they are already in sales. The management is very open and many people are used to structure, training, and formal approaches. Recruitment in general seems to require individuals who are self-motivators, independent and very social (outstanding interpersonal skills). Adaptive and flexible personalities with a...

    This post took place before Huntel Global was purchased by Drake. There are no longer any people remaining from the original Huntel Global. We have hired a completely new team that is working hard to support their clients and candidates.

    Pros

    Newbies and Tenured people can be successful at Huntel. The team is collaborative and inclusive in their approach to assisting you while you get on your feet and build / rebuild your book of business. Fantastic manager with a Salt of the earth sense of Character he is fair, and helpful in his approach to assisting growth.

    Cons

    The owner has relationships with C - Level Clients that are 2nd to none. He will introduce you to decision makers to get you started and let you run with clients once you demonstrate that you can bring in new business. If you come in with a big agency mentality and wait for the phone to ring you will be swimming upstream. He is fair and anyone that has worked in the industry knows B.D is Boss (Business Development).

    Advice to Management

    None really, if anything the corporate culture is born of level professionalism the manager brings, he is the best I have ever worked with and is a keeper!
