Purchasing Analyst (Former Employee) – Vernon Hills, IL – February 22, 2019
I had several career opportunities to choose from, and I decided to take a chance temping for a great company. The agency helped push for me to get a pay raise and to be placed permanently. Three months later, I was offered a permanent position with an amazing benefits package. I'm now eight months into the job, I have a promising career path, and I couldn't be happier with my decision.
Great advocates, responsive and prompt, paid weekly.
Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Franklin Park, IL – November 22, 2017
I received an email from a recruiter at JobGiraffe for a position that aligns with my graphic design skills. The recruiter was very helpful and went above and beyond in making great points about the current company I was placed with as well as guiding me in my next career move. As a rather recent college graduate, it was very beneficial to have that insight and perspective. JobGiraffe has placed me in a position I am happy with, using my design skills, and steady income. I recommend JobGiraffe for their persistence, and clear communication throughout the job interview process and the job itself.
I applied for a job I found on Indeed (Former Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – August 3, 2017
I was skeptical to go to another agency- but the Downers Grove office was very professional. I interviewed, they helped me with my resume and so far I have had two interview with actual companies - no job offer yet but they are working for me.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 17, 2017
As a college student looking for temporary work, JobGiraffe helped me with multiple summer jobs. I was placed twice and both companies had requested I come back the following summer. Having the opportunity to extend my temp position was beyond my expectations. The initial procress of filling out paperwork was simple and all of the consultants were extremely friendly. Communication between the employer, the consultant and myself was always clear. The entire process from start to finish was rather smooth and I truly enjoyed both jobs they had placed me in. I would absolutely recommend this company to others looking for employment opportunities.
Full Time Employee (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 25, 2017
I've really enjoyed my time working at JobGiraffe. My co-workers are all very nice, and were very welcoming when I joined the team. Our CEO is available and always willing to 'jump into the trenches' with us when things get hectic.
Also, helping people to find full-time/permanent positions (as opposed to working for a temp agency) is incredibly rewarding. I'll never forget the first time I saw my work lead to someone getting a good-paying, stable job. It was great!
GREAT people with a ton of industry experience
If things get slow in the office, then the energy in the room can dip a little
Recruit (Former Employee) – Chicagoland, IL – March 15, 2017
Brought in for an interview and testing that took about two hours. Very helpful with resume advise and presentation, but it stops there. Once their initial prospect for you is gone, you will not hear back from them. For positions I e-mailed them I had interested in, was told to not bother. When calling them, was told to e-mail them instead. Would agree that it feels like you are just a number.
Resume advise was very helpful
Maybe they should re-brand themselves as resume and interview prep instead of an employment agency
Recruit (Former Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – January 23, 2017
This recruiter company just wastes people's time. They make you fill out many forms and take tests for nothing. The recruiter said I was a good candidate and to expect an email. I filled out everything and completed the tests with great scores. I had to be the one to follow up only to be told the position was already filled. All this happened within a few days. It seems that they are trying to fill out some sort of quota and could care less about you. They seem very interested in you at first but once you go in for an "interview" and fill out their forms, they do not contact you.
Former member (Former Employee) – Vernon Hills, IL – January 5, 2017
Working for these people was a nightmare. They find you a position but it seems like they knew that the position was supposed to end before you did and then once you tell them that your position ended, they forget that you're still around. Lack of compassion don't really care about their employees I found out I was working for two people but only getting paid for one how is that? You keep in constant communication with them but they'll sit up there and say oh yeah we thought about you but they actually didn't I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone just my honest opinion.
