Do you believe company ratings?
Get your reviews on line, of course! Nearly all on-line merchants, from Amazon to individual e-boutiques, offer clients the opportunity to check their goods and service. And, as a consumer, we search these reviews to make sure we make the right choices. It should come as no great deal of surprises that there are business rating pages like Glassdoor.com and Jobitorial.com that offer the contemporary job seeker a shop windows look.
View ratings and information (such as mean salaries) of present and former staff to help you measure the overall level of corporate expertise. Prior to going down the bunnyhole of on-line reviews, here are a few rules for containing them into your job hunt effectively-and your crucial Employment choices. If you' re looking for a job, it's a good idea to look at the ratings right away - or even use them to find the best jobs.
And, yes, while fervent reviews can help you get a better look at a business, poor reviews can seriously hamper your drive to apply - even if you would otherwise be very interested (and even if those reviews turn out to be inappropriate). In order to prevent this prejudice, wait until you get an interrogation before you read reviews.
A lucky client tells three persons on balance about her great experiences, an unfortunate one more than three time more.
OK, so you're not looking for reviews or restaurants, but the same rationale can be used. Remember that a dissatisfied coworker (or ex-employee) is more likely to be active in finding a place to look for his frustration about his business than a lucky coworker to chant his hymns of praise, and for this purpose, many on-line reviews pages distort bad.
Well, I'm not saying to disparage any reviews; in fact, a number of poor reviews that have the same general topics can certainly reflect an unwanted business. However, note that every business has a few unsatisfied people - even top-rated jobs like Google - so take a close look at everything you read.
Are the reviews complaining about lay-offs, PTO cutbacks or recent changes in managment? However, if you continue to research, you may find that the firm is being restructured or recently purchased - and these changes can be a natural and sound part of the revitalization of a fighting firm or the reorientation of its course.
Or if you are digging further, you might find out that the employees' grumble about "cuts to vacation" is due to the fact that the former "unlimited holiday period" has been changed to three weekly periods - which is hardly the same as the scarcity of holidays. Don't just take what you are reading, if you are worried about something, do extra research to get the facts.
OK, so you've reviewed all 74 reviews of your chosen business, and you've seen a few core questions that keep coming up. If, for example, a reviewer says: "Everyone here has worked to the bone", one could well ask oneself a simple questions about the length of a day's work.
At the other end, if a check that insists, "All my manager have horrible management skills", this is a little more difficult - unfortunately there is no really impartial way to check this information, and you need to keep an eye out for other characters that will help you to see whether you should be affected or not.
And even if you are reading about the shallow leadership structures of a business and rare promotion, it is not translated well if your interviewers with "So, would I really be in the same job for at least five years? OK everything is said and done, and your interviewers have checked what all reviews were mentioned:
Or maybe you're in the opposite case - while all the reviews say that corporate cultures make up for the shortage of promotion, you quickly climbed onto the top, and the situations you've revealed have given you a break. Rather than group the reviews you are reading into "good" and "bad", rate the topics one by one and determine what they mean to you.
Although it is simple to get bogged down in on-line reviews, your general view of the business should come from a much broader range of resources. Beyond research, the things you see in the business (employees smile? is everyone in their cabin?), your interactions with the HR director and your passion for the company's key business should affect your final choice.
