Fun learning experience, benefits, friendly environment
Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – April 7, 2014
Celerity recruiting is does not have much structure, which allows the more experienced recruiters to succeed easily. I would recommend the job to anybody with a good grasp of recruiting because the opportunity is huge. The training is light and allows the incoming recruiter to form their own methods to accomplish daily tasks. The company as a whole is extremely friendly and promotes a work hard/play hard mentality. We had happy hours every Friday and often were able to speak with the CEO at any time.
friendly, benefits/salary, good amount of business
lack of in-depth training, difficult metrics to meet
Consultant (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – January 7, 2016
I have worked for this company for over a year. I have been treated with the utmost respect and speaking with your company liaison manager is very easy. I always feel as though I have support and the work life balance is great.
This company made promises to the employees of the company that they purchased and did not follow through with those promises. They moved the employees from an office to working at home and required that the employees purchase equipment in order to complete their jobs. Some employees bought new laptops and then were laid off before being converted over to the Celerity system.
After Celerity slowed down the job was a Hit or Missed situation due to the layoffs. A typical day in the clean room went by fast because it was exciting to work with different cultures and learn new information about the job. The hardest part about the job is when we had to work everyday when we failed behind in work because it was hard to keep up when the quality of work wasn't there due to people being tired of working six to seven days a week.
SharePoint Analyst (Current Employee) – Glen Allen, VA – March 18, 2015
This company allowed me to push myself by not taking the standard solution but to find alternate routes / out of the box solutions. No limits on testing 3rd party applications or introducing new into their corporate enviornment
Electronic Assembler/Leadsman (Former Employee) – Yorba Linda, CA – June 23, 2013
This company is a great company to work for. I have learned and received all my management experiences from this company. They care about there employees and have great advancement opportunities and are a equal opportunity employer. They gave great benefits and compensations. I would still be employed by them now but I could not re locate out of state due to my family. I have many recommendations from the top supervisors from this company for my work ethics.
The client is much more important than the employee
BA Tester / Contractor (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 7, 2013
The recruitment process was good; nice, and friendly. When the time came to place me with a client, I was suddenly hit with the realization that the client requires MANDATORY 10 to 12 hour workdays, and 60-hour workweeks!! You get paid overtime, but it is "banked" for at least 6 weeks. If you can't do the the 10-hour days, the client terminates the contract. So, either Celerity KNEW about this up-front, and didn't tell its' own employees about it; or they DIDN'T do their homework, and exposed their employess to "slave labor". In either case, Celerity was unsympathetic with those who had trouble working the hours, because the client is always right.
celerity tried to have "social gatherings", and "happy hours"
my rep got visibly upset that things weren't going the way she wanted.
Technical Project Manager (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – October 12, 2012
I joined the company and went to the first day orientation. I became very ill and missed two days of work. They decided to terminate me due to "non-commitment" (taking two days of sick leave). After "seeing what they could do" with HR, they changed their mind. I decided not to work any longer at this company. Be very careful. Very unethical management practices.
I worked for this company for the majority of my young life and loved every minute. The people were so friendly, the work was easy and there was definitly room for advancement. The company ultimately closed but if it had not I would still be there. Loved this company!
