    I worked at AltisHR full-time

    Pros

    - Fun/enjoyable colleagues
    - Yearly Incentive

    Cons

    - Micromanage
    - No trust - block the internet but expect staff to be able to be successful in business development and do it quickly.
    - Do not embrace keeping up with the times or refining recruitment techniques
    - Not open to hearing new ideas or changing any of their approaches

    Advice to Management

    Trust your staff, be open minded, embrace change, keep up with recruitment trends. Don't just shrug off suggestions and say "this is how it's always been", that is not good business.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at AltisHR (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter from Altis called and invited me to an interview. When she described the job, it was clearly completely unrelated to my background, experience, skills, and professional goals. When I expressed that this seemed really far from a fit, she said "No, no, this is how they describe it, but really your general skills in x will be perfect." What can I say? I was almost finished another assignment and needed work, so I went - taking (unpaid) time off to go. When I interviewed, the company seemed great and the job fantastic but clearly a total mismatch. I have a lot of valuable skills, but I have absolutely NO background in what they were seeking. The interviewers could see it, I could see it, and you know what else? I am sure that the Altis recruiter saw it too. She just had to "send her three people" and had one in mind and didn't care about the fit of the others. She didn't respect me or my time, or respond honestly when I spoke about my misgivings. I lost wages, time, and energy on this. Altis went further in losing my respect.
