For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Phone Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: A phone call is cool. Always good to chat with folks interested in progressing their career. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: A hard skill set that reflects expertise in an industry. It's important to be ambitious when seeking an upgrade in a career but it sure is easier to help people who have the credentials to take the next step. Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: The recruitment process is transforming to a more digital one day by day. Most candidates already have enough information available online to dictate their competency and build a profile. If they don't have that....I guess we could do an old school resume? Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Not following through on commitments to Sugar Systems or to the client company. We have a reputation to protect and the people we refer are a direct extension of us as a company. We like people who make us look good! Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "A rise in tides raises all ships." What do you like to do in your free time? I'm a big reader. Success leaves clues (often times in books written by great men) and I'm trying to soak them up Sherlock Holmes style. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I am passionate about people and it's satisfying to be able to help a candidate upgrade their career while also helping a company fill a challenging position. In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? "Team building exercises" where we go drive go carts, smash some baseballs at a batting cage, go white water rafting, etc. Stuff like that is engaging AND a tax write off! ;-) In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Driven. These guys and girls get the job done day in and day out.

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant. Nike employees get to work on a wide array of challenges, so if you're obsessed with math, science, computers, and/or data, and you love sport, these stories may inspire you to work at Nike.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
