    I worked at SThree full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Other than very interesting candidates you get to meet and learning new things about the vertical you’re placed in, I can think of none.

    Cons

    A churn and burn environment. Cookie-cutter approach to training. Little to no power over what your role entails. Favoritism is prevalent. Bait-and-switch tactics and some very shady behavior from middle and upper management. No room to make mistakes and unclear targets. Some of my coworkers were flat-out mean and unwelcoming. You have to lie to candidates and be willing to push people over to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees; offer more tailored training; be honest with your candidates

    I worked at SThree full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None that I experienced. They do offer 21 vacation/sick days but require a week of them are used between Christmas and New Years so while it sounds amazing, it's really a week vacation, a week of sick but the company is closed for the Christmas holiday and you are paid for that.

    Cons

    No employee orientation, not a very welcoming environment to new employees, management asks how things are going but don't really care.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a chance beyond one mistake, one week in the job. I gave up other opportunities and waited a week for my job to start. I was given hours to enter by the person training me on my second day, with little training or access to be trained. The trainer checked them and said I did good. Later it was discovered that those hours were actually for someone else. It was still two days before payroll was to be...

    I worked at SThree full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My recruiter Bem A. made the interview process very seamless, quick and easy. After we had our first conversation, the rest of the process lasted a week and I was offered the following week. Bem is an All-Star! Having been at my previous employer for over 5yrs, I came to Progressive Global Energy looking to shake up my routine. Walking in to a new place in downtown Houston can be nerve wrecking. Not knowing where to...

    Cons

    I loved my time here. If I had to choose it would be the construction going on underneath us. Can be pretty hard to focus with all of the noise at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the employees wants and needs. You are doing an amazing job at creating the type of environment that makes it REALLY hard to leave.
