Application questions

  • I only use my first initial on my resume because if you have an ethnic name some recruiters/hiring managers will immediately reject you. "MD" thought my CV was a GREAT WHITE FIT UNTIL HE HEARD MY BLACK FIRST NAME. MD prejudice was as clear as president TRUMP! There was no denying either he or the client DID NOT WANT AFRICAN AMERICAN EMPLOYEES.
  • The recruiter "MD" reached out to me and left a vm that he liked my resume/experience. As soon as I told him my first name, he hung up in my face TWICE! When I called the office (#3) to report him, he said an in person interview would not be necessary.
  • My previous job skills as it related to the position

Care more about the needs of your applicants (keep them working) as well as the working conditions of where they are placed.

I never hear back from any company when I apply on Monster. I only receive a lot of spam emails that I have to block.

Did not get as far as the interview. I applied and then sent a follow-up email, to the person named as the contact, to inquire further about the job. I received a curt response that "The position has been filled." No thank you for applying - nothing. When I asked about possible future opportunities, I got no response at all. Very poor communication and very low level of professionalism!

Comment

Employees need to satisfy the candidates needs better.They already have jobs while many of us are still searching. Some sort of feedback is better than nothing. It's very frustrating waiting for a response when it never comes.This is just not my personal experience with them. I know several people who have applied for jobs through them and have had the same results. Manpower used to be the place to go.Not so much anymore. The competition is strong so I believe they need to put forth more of an effort

  • What do you do in your spare time? Do you like to travel? Do you have kids?

Comment

Be more honest and open with candidates in the beginning stages. If your not sure you have a true opportunity. Please don’t string them along just so you can keep a good candidate in your pipeline just in case the less experienced candidate won’t work out. Just because you don’t want to pay for a 10 year seasoned candidate in Staffing Operations.

Some type of contact would have been appreciated. This being a temp agency, and me having 20+ years experience, I would have thought I would have gotten some type of response. I left several messages, after completing the application. No return calls received.

I applied through monster, received an email on a Friday that they already filled the position. However the following week the same job was still listed, so I reapplied never got a response.
