"Having held various administrative jobs in the past, it was always difficult for me to believe that it would ever be something I could make a career out of. Working at Vanderbloemen Search Group has been challenging and inspiring in ways I never thought possible. Not only have I improved in my skills and everyday work, I have also grown as a person through my friendships and working relationships with colleagues. The job can be stressful and unpredictable at times, but after a particularly stressful week (and sometimes for no reason), my employer will send me a nice email describing how he is thankful for the work that I do. Feeling that my role holds actual value and that I am irreplaceable make all the difference."

"The company was nice to work for."

What do you like about working at Datatek Consulting Group?

"The management team at this location were phenominal. I ended up having to have emergency surgery about two months after I worked there and they gave me my vacation time ahead of time before I earned it to help me out.

Executive Assistant at Valley National Bank
in Avondale, AZ

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"Not as fulfilling as I hoped. Limited job growth. Poor company moral."

What do you like about working at Valley National Bank?

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Do research the senior management thoroughly and use your business network to find out about key staff. The company has a high turn over rate and it's a certain type of personality (a personality test is given prior to hiring) that will suceed."

What don't you like about working at Valley National Bank?

"The CEO was a micro manager who did not let department heads do their jobs without interference. The CEO was over involved with outside activities under the guise of marketing that resulting in not as much time being commited to her primary role."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"The CEO needs to step back from outside activities and committees (limiting them to perhaps 3) and take a step back into her normal role. She needs to realize she hired a great senior management team and allow them to do their jobs without interference in their day-to-day job functions. The CEO preached family but didn't show that in her actions."
