Great Job or Greatest Job Ever?
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – June 19, 2017
I've worked at Boly:Welch for a few years and keep waiting for the other shoe to drop -- sure, it's a dog-friendly office, but there must be something wrong with it, right? Nope. As advertised, it's a truly Portland, women-dominant, family-friendly, sustainable, ethical B Corps with a passionate inter-generational workforce, supportive management team, and tons of opportunity to give back and get involved. The benefits are great (12 days to volunteer a year, world class parties, in-house massages, etc., etc.) and the people are even better.
It's not a process-driven culture, so it can be a little challenging to measure what we do, but I feel strongly that everyone does great work and really cares about their clients and candidates. There are a lot of inherent biases against recruiting and staffing agencies (people pushers, headhunters, putting warm bodies in open roles), but I like to think Boly:Welch turns those stereotype on its head. I hope all of our candidates and clients find a fit as good as Boly:Welch -- it's been the best job I've ever had.
Dogs <3, lots of healthy benefits, strong team, lots of continuing education options
Commissions subject to market fluctuations - can be a pro too
