    Pros

    QR is a challenging and exciting place to work. From day one you will be thrown into a project that will stretch and challenge you. Each and every project that you work on will be different from the last and there are always new skills to be gained.

    Despite QR operating on a global scale they have managed a create a close-knit, supportive, and high performing culture, which is reflected in the effort made to bringing the company together frequently and encourage collaboration.

    The calibre of candidates they attract is extremely high but they take care to employ people who are both high performers and sociable. As a result, they have succeeded in creating a strong company culture that embodies the “work hard, play hard” ethos.

    Cons

    Very few really.

    You may be required to work in different locations from time to time.

    Working at the client means you need to stay at the top of your project and also manage the client relationship.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Continue hiring high calibre employees and ensure that the unique culture remains as the company grows.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quick Release.

    Interview

    There were three rounds. The first round was an excel test that was fairly easy. The second round was an interview with someone in the UK that involved normal situational and behavioral questions. The final round was an assessment centre in Dearborn. This consisted of a presentation, a technical paper and interviews.

    Now to the issues. The HR team all sit in the UK and communicating with them is a tedious task due to the time difference. After speaking to other employees at the assessment centre I was informed that this was an issue for them as well. Additionally, I was told that the US wasn’t normally their region and that they were not fully aware of how things were done in the US. It’s strange that a company that has been in the US for a significant amount of time still has no one in the country to handle this process.

    Secondly, they ask you to come for the assessment centre from one coast of the US to the other all at your own cost! I have never had an experience where a company has asked me travel out of state for an interview and not offered to pay for the expenses. For a recent graduate looking for a job this is not easy to do. After much discussion, they asked me to book the flights and hotel stay and said that they would pay a certain percentage of those specific costs only, with a very low limit to go across the country! To add to this, I was always informed of an assessment centre just a week before they were held so finding affordably priced tickets and accommodation was always difficult.

    Now to the best part. Unfortunately, I agreed and ended up going for the assessment centre at Dearborn. The staff there were all very friendly and easy to get along with and the interview process was good. I wasn’t selected for the role (which is fine). However, since I have submitted the expenses, my emails have been ignored without so much as an acknowledgement that it has been received. I’ve sent my emails to two different people and have got no response. I’m unsure if I will even receive my reimbursement at this stage. To me this highlights a lack of professionalism and general courtesy as well as a general organizational culture that normalizes treating candidates in this manner.
