    I have been working at AltisHR full-time

    Pros

    From the time I was first introduced to the staff at AltisHR to when I landed my first job through them- the team was simply amazing! It was almost as if they were there with you throughout the entire process. I felt as if my journey finding a job was made easier. Now almost a year into this job and I can still say that I LOVE it. The fit was perfect. I've never loved going to a job like I do now. I look forward to spending...

    Cons

    There is nothing really that I can point out - except that when I got the job offer - I didn't find out until a week later because the individual I was working with was super busy and missed the email. That made me nervous, but other than that - nothing negative to say.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to add the right sort of people to the team. It goes a long way for those who are out there actively searching for jobs. The right person can pick up when a candidate is frustrated, distressed and about to give up- and can encourage them to hang in there. At least for me, that was my case. Side note - thank you N.R for everything!!

    I worked at AltisHR full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The staff are really nice and enjoy going out together after a hard days work. When the CEO (Kathryn) pops into the office she is very warm and easy to talk to. Your unhappiness will not make up for any of the pros that are actually here. They offer you 'team time' on Friday's to enjoy snacks and drinks with the office but in reality, most staff can't afford that hour from 4-5 to enjoy themselves. You'll also...

    Cons

    INSANE metrics - they're never happy with what you produce! And also they micromanage like crazy. They're also quite shady in terms of the offer letter and commission structure. I've seen a number of people let go within a month and week before their 6-month probation. Salary isn't that competitive and can find better pay at other recruitment firms.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop micromanaging your staff and please reevaluate your metrics. I've had this discussion with my team lead a number of times but she couldn't do anything because her director was micromanaging her. Directors; Please let your team leads take control as you'll see more success from the consultants/account managers and you'll see less turnover. Please also allow more flexibility in the office like work from...

    It’s unfortunate to read your negative comments regarding your time at altisHR. You’re right, in a position that relates to sales, metrics are inevitable. They are not intended to micromanage, they are relayed to you as a means to support your growth and development. Especially in ...

    No Pros at all !

    Cons

    One of the most unprofessional people to work with! They track their employees performance the minute you log in and to each email you sent , to how many calls you make weekly and to how many emails you sent out each week! You have no choice over which clients you want to work with or chose accordingly to where your expertise lie.They follow a very authoritative leadership style. One of the most demotivating commission...

    Pros

    I worked with AltisHR for over a year and they were the employment agency I had the most success with. The staff are incredibly friendly and attentive and are great at finding you roles. As with most staffing agencies, building a positive relationship between you and your representative/s at the agency is the key to success. If they can trust you to be a reliable worker and can be confident in placing you in a workplace...

    Cons

    Occasionally didn't hear back when interviewing for extended placements and had to chase up a response. Hourly rates were often very low and few jobs payed higher than $12. I never did challenge this however and perhaps negotiation is possible.

      Pros

      No pros at all. They give lots of hopes to potential candidates but they never call them back for any opportunities. Most of the jobs posted seems to be fake and does not exist.

      Cons

      Unprofessional services, need to improve a lot and be very genuine with the aspiring candidates. Give unnecessary hopes to candidates.

      Advice to Management

      Please don't ruin and play with the emotions and career of poor candidatea
