    Positive Outlook

    I worked at AltisHR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The culture here is the biggest draw! They are a Platinum winner of Canada's Top 50 Managed Companies and there are many reasons for that. There is no tolerance for catty behaviour, consultants never compete internally for clients, and there is a great training program delivered by senior consultants for new hires and refresher courses for all staff members. The environment with colleagues is very supportive and positive....

    Cons

    This is a sales position and a metrics driven environment. While this can be viewed in either a positive and negative stance depending on your work style. If you are not comfortable with a target based position than this is not the environment for you. However, if you are driven by set goals, clear expectations, a supportive management team, and a good commission structure than you will do well here. They have high expectations,...

    Advice to Management

    During my time there I would have recommend a more business casual office dress code rather than the standard corporate attire. However, I have since visited the office and noticed this has changed.

    Pros

    Excellent training program, friendly environment, very professional, nice office. You are rewarded for your efforts in the form of commission so you get to decide how hard you want to work. Good management- they provide a lot of feedback that helps you grow. Female focused environment so fun shopping spree, other prizes and annual review is really fun ( you get s nice lunch out at a fancy restaurant) and a nice gift like...

    Cons

    If you are not a driven, client focused person then this job is really not for you. Like any sales bases role, you have to put in a lot of work and pay attention to detail in order to make placements and be successful. Some people might interpret this as micro- management but reviewing your scrutiny and providing feedback is key to success in any sales / client focused environment. There is s set formula for success so...

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

    Pros

    Gave me my 1st professional experience in Toronto. Beautiful offices in downtown location overseeing the CN tower.

    Cons

    High turnover. A lot of gossiping, seems like its high school sometimes, mean spirited. Management were cold and the individual that ran Toronto office had favourites, she also seemed to be under a lot of pressure. Dog eat Dog environment. Yikes

    Advice to Management

    Need to move with the times. Communication needs improvement.

    I have been working at AltisHR

    Pros

    They pay weekly. This is the only positive.

    Cons

    The rate of pay is LOW! If you are working as a contractor you have to continue to do your own job search because you will never be hired for a full time position.

    Advice to Management

    Hire consultants with people skills.

    I have been working at AltisHR

    Pros

    Openings not available elsewhere, unfortunately so at least it give a foot in the door.

    Cons

    The recruitment consultants are completely unprofessional. Given that they themselves are working such a low level job, they have not comprehension of what the contents of an actual professional resumé are. They are condescending and rude, and have been deliberately dishonest and misleading. Considering how much money they make off of every hour that one of their placements works, you would think they would treat people...

    Advice to Management

    Respect the your placements! Do NOT force us to be tied to the agency for so long - let us free, or at least provide a raise or SOMETHING for every contract extension or re-placement.
