Not a great experience (for me)
Recruiting Director (Former Employee) – Lake Oswego, OR – August 23, 2018
I was brought on to Mass Mutual as the Director of Recruiting and given no direction. I still hit the ground running and one day after only two months of working there I was told that I was being let go. When I asked why they said "what ever you want to say" I asked again, what do I say to my wife when she asks me? Again, "whatever you want, we'll back you up on it". When I asked if I could qualify for unemployment they said yes as the position was being eliminated (yet someone else was in it within a month or two) and that I could claim unemployment and they wouldn't fight it. When I asked what to tell them why I was laid off or let go, again "whatever you want to say". They had no systems in place to train or ensure people hit the ground running. They also hit me out of the blue with this instead of saying ahead of time, let's have weekly meetings and discuss how you're doing and ways we can help you, etc. I respect the GA and his wife but am disappointed in my short stint there as I am someone who learns quick and they really seemed as if they didn't want me to succeed.
Had my own office, Nice overall office space
Not given proper support or training time with the previous Director of Recruiting
