    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.

    I have been working at The Job Window full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The office atmosphere is great. Everyone is super friendly and motivated and management is approachable and helpful. I really didn't know what to expect when I started this job. I wasn't sure how I felt about being on the phone all day. It turns out I love it! I get to help other people find jobs. it's true not everyone is cut out for the kinds of jobs we're offering, but not everyone is cut out for any job.

    I don't know how long I'll want to continue doing this sort of work, but so far it's been a great learning experience. I've had people call me back and thank me for putting them in touch with their new company. So far that keeps me motivated. Plus the fact that I can become a team leader based on my performance rather than how long I've been with the company.

    Cons

    Being on the phone all day can get a little monotonous. You have to be able to keep yourself energized and positive in order to take advantage of the pay incentives and move up.

    Advice to Management

    If it would be possible to add more variety to the job that would make it a lot easier to stay focused and energized through the day.

    Pros

    Awesome working environment filled with super friendly people. The office culture is a very relaxed one which helps us to focus on our jobs. The work itself is stressful at times but when goals are met the rewards are phenomenal. Free trips to mexico and gift cards are great motivators! This company has so much growth opportunity that any new grad should welcome this opportunity.

    Cons

    Compensation could be improved upon.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up this awesome working environment!

    Pros

    i have been working for the company for less than a year, and my experience has been phenomenon. The work environment is friendly, motivating and supportive. I can always count on my team leader and colleagues, whenever, i have a question. The team will always be there to motivate you, when it is needed.
    There's a a comfortable and understanding relationship with the management team.
    The management team will always try to resolve and aid the employees as much as possible.
    There's also internal growth with the company. Hard work and dedication will not be pardoned.

    Cons

    at times aiming for the main target goal may be stressful.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the supportive motivation and care!

    I have been working at The Job Window full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm glad they took me in when i was desperately seeking any kind of job

    - Good benefits and casual dress code which helps you save lots of money on work clothes.
    - It's good how they hire lots of people after post-secondary graduation; thus creating jobs.
    - I'm glad they took me in when i was desperately seeking any kind of job

    Cons

    I don't usually waste my time writing bad reviews but my experience is just beyond dissatisfied.

    COMPANY STRUCTURE:
    - Lots of unethical practices just like the second comment mentioned below
    - makes up fake job titles for the same job position hoping to trick more people into applying
    - management very unorganized in terms of recruiting the right candidate for clients and tells employees to twists the truth to get people to come in for an interview
    - Very high employee turnover rate. At least 3-4 people quitting every month

    PAY:
    - Very low pay for considering everyone is a fresh grad from post-secondary (minimum wage + commission). There was a lot of pressure to sell, sell, sell. It's easy to make a lot off commission if you are given a good city to recruit for. Some cities bring in lots of candidates, giving you a lot of commission and some cities just don't produce a lot of candidates, which put you in a bad position with the CEO and management. Therefore, the structure isn't very fair.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at The Job Window full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The corporate culture is what makes this company. Everyone is SO friendly, it's a casual working environment (so stuffy business suits are out and you can get away with wearing jeans every day), there's constant rewards and perks for doing a great job (which is something I love because it keeps me constantly motivated) and management has a complete open door policy where they really make you feel like your opinions do matter and that they really want to hear your suggestions so they can implement them and make the overall work environment better. Working here really gives you a sense that both management team members and co-workers want to see you succeed and they coach you constantly to do your absolute best.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge about working here is managing your time, resources and productivity in order to stand out and prove to management that you deserve a promotion. There are so many hardworking and competitive team members here that you really have to be organized and have the ability to multi-task to ensure your efficiency levels are optimal and that you can exceed projected daily goals to separate yourself from the crowd. There is a ton of room for growth here from entry-level to mid-level management positions, as well as new roles constantly opening up in other departments but in order to be considered you need to understand that handwork, dedication and rising to the top of the group is required to be recognized.

    Advice to Management

    The constantly evolving training and incentive program is wonderful. Please keep this up! It's really helped me progress in this role and helped me understand what targets I need to hit in order to get to where I want to be (moving into a more mid-level management role)

    I worked at The Job Window full-time

    Pros

    The recruiters working there are friendly and lovely to work with. It's a comfortable setting if you are ok with sitting all day for 8 hours

    Cons

    - literally on the phone 8 hours a day
    - pay is base or commission, however it is difficult to make commission depending on the market you are provided
    - borderlines cold calling -- you pretty much just book as many people as you can with little to no requirements or standards.
    - takes embellishing a job description to a whole new level. There is a standard pitch for every job no matter what job it is and very focused on numbers rather than quality

    Advice to Management

    provide equal opportunity for training new recruiters on board, instead of watching their numbers after only a couple days on the phone.
    Provide better market and leads for recruiters to feel motivated to make those calls and bookings, otherwise it is difficult to motivate employees to make bookings when they know they are unable to make their quota
