I had every indicator of stress while I worked there
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – July 27, 2017
Great training program, you have two training sessions every week. High turnover rates and very high stress levels. I threw up before I went to work. Great first job to get experience and unless you have a vice you wont make it here long.
IT Specialist - Aramark (Current Employee) – Aramark HQ - Philadelphia, PA – May 23, 2018
I have worked with many recruiting firms throughout my career and I always go to Workbridge first. They have always been able to land me interviews for great positions. I might not have always gotten the job, but they were determined to place me in a great place. Each time I was placed, they would follow up and ensure I liked it and made sure it was what I expected. They have you meet with all of their recruiters and they give you a sense that they care. They take time to make sure they understand what you are looking for. and not to waste your or companies time. I highly recommend going through Workbridge!
Lead Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 4, 2018
I started this job a few years out of college, most of my colleagues doing this fresh out of school. I have been here little over 3 years and have seen the success I was promised in the beginning. This is a place that values those who work hard and love to play hard. I was a bartender before and loved sales, working with people and learning about new things. This job keeps me on my toes and I have learned so many skills that I will use in any position moving forward. I am a professional business woman who can speak to CEO's, negotiate contracts and talk about relevant market knowledge.
The hours can be long, but if you have a hard time managing your time. The expectations are clear and attainable if you have good work ethic and put in the effort.
I have fun at work and enjoy the team aspect. Everyone works together and appreciates each other. We celebrate positives and critique each other so we can improve. This is my kind of place, but might not be for everyone. This isn't somewhere to coast by and take home a pay check each week. This is a place to kick butt and take names.
Happy hours, team-based training, clear expectations, great money once on comission
Rigid work day, working with people can be tough-they're people!
Practice Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 29, 2017
It was a great place to start my career and advance to a management level. It gave me exposure to managing, training, hiring, and promoting entry level sales folks. Lack of career advancement led to me wanting to leave.
Consulatant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 18, 2017
You primary tasks here are to take as much money away from the consultants and companies they work for. If the consultants aren't working, then we use them for information to steal their interviews and manager information so we can score more deals.
Interestingly enough, many of the people here are young, and they go along with this practice without any question.
Pay is ok, but not worth selling your soul
Felt awful at the end of the day, all day was spent ripping people off
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 8, 2017
Workbridge wasn't a fun place to work. No trust between management and the rest of team. Many people were untrustworthy and I had to keep to myself a lot. I would probably hire my own HR staff before using them. The pay wasn't bad though and I didn't mind the companies goals and micromanaging. I also got excellent training for my next job.
Lead Recruiter (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 17, 2016
This is a cutting edge opportunity where you will be pushed and under pressure, but you will come out learning and honing in on skills you didn't know you needed for the real world. It's a great opportunity but you must be open to constructive criticism.
grow your skills quickly, great training program and supportive staff
you might have to work long hours and the beginning pay isn't strong
Alot of production and overall good people to work for and with.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – September 10, 2016
It was a good place to work. All of us that worked their helped each other out and respected each other. All of us knew what we needed to get done and we all just did our best to make sure it got done.
Recruiter/Account Development (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 8, 2016
Liked the people that worked here for sure. Everyone is always really pleasant to be around. I didn't like the fact that to get additional help it meant that I had to request time to go out and drink with management until 8-8:30. The culture is built pretty heavily around drinking and after work activities which at times can be more exhausting than the actually work you do during the day.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Orange County, CA – July 25, 2016
I worked at Workbridge Associates for over six months and LOVED it. Although recruiting just was not a god fit for me personally, I gained amazing skills that I will carry with me throughout my career.
It seems like all these staffing companies (Workbridge, Robert Half, TekSystems) don't really have positions to fill as they keep circulating the same positions over and over again on their websites. Here is what happened:
I applied to what sounds like a legitimate IT position and the next day I get a call from a junior recruiter to discuss the opportunity. We go over skills, experiences, requirements, company location and size, salary requirements, and then set a face-to-face meeting with senior recruiters in their DC office. I was expecting an email to confirm meeting, location to discuss the position in more detail and here is what I got:
Please email me a copy of: • Three technical supervisory references.
Additionally: • A list of any target companies that you would like to pursue.
• A list of companies we should not contact on your behalf. (This list should include the companies where your resume has been submitted and the companies where you have already interviewed.)
Interview Details: When you get here you and I will sit down for 15-20 minutes, talk about your recent projects and experience in a bit more depth. Then I’ll have you meet with my colleagues on the team here, where I and the team will do our best to answer any questions you might have about specific positions or the market in general. Any of the positions you approve, we’ll submit you to and get started marketing you to our clients.
NO Where in the above message states anything aboutmore... the position the junior recruiter and I discussed over the phone.....They want me to provide info for them to find jobs I can do myself.less
None That I'm Aware Of
There are no jobs, they copy job descriptions and salary info from other sources
Recruiter/Sourcer (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – May 9, 2016
The work day was supposed to be from 8:30-5:30 but several people stayed until way late. I learned how to recruit but management was not helpful. Coworkers were awesome, but that's about the only reason to stay.
