Creative Circle in New York is worthless and unprofessional!
Having registered with them, with the best professional intentions, I received a call from one of their recruiters. She addressed with a "bratty" tone, over the phone, spoke a mile-a-minute, and said I should come in for talk... that "I know the drill".
When I arrived, I waited in the entry lounge, while a group of employees were goofing off in the hallway in front of me. No on came up to me to ask me if I needed some help, or if I were waiting for someone. Finally, I approached them, and said that I was there for an interview. I was escorted to a small interview room, where I waited another 20 minutes. Finally, the recruiter came in, gave me a canned intro (very quickly), wasn't particularly interested in my professional needs.
Every time I respond to postings and emails that fit my capabilities, I receive absolutely no responses from the group. When I call, everyone's in a meeting. When I leave messages, no one returns them.
I find Creative Circle very amateurish as a firm representing the creative community. They're definitely NOT professional recruiters, and most of the 20-something recruiters and account execs have no experience in the advertising and branding arena. STAY AWAY FROM THEM.
