I am so shocked at the reviews I've read about The Hadden Group. I've worked with these fabulous ladies for 11+ years and I have nothing but great things to say about them. It's hard to believe we are even talking about the same agency. Carolyne placed me in a great position at a great company 11 years ago. Due to conditions beyond my control the job ended and she found me yet another great job! Who ARE you talking about? I've also worked with Karen and Gwen - both super professional and great recruiters. Perhaps there is more going on here than we know, but you should definitely give them a try if you are looking for a great job. I did and I've never looked back.

I barely walked in the door when my "recruiter" told me that she found me a job, which surprised me considering we'd never even talked about my experience and what I was looking for in a career. She was trying to talk me into interviewing for an office manager position, and I explained that I have 5 years in marketing and handle national client accounts.

Nothing against the office position, but it's not my field at all. Then she made me take a typing test, and when I told her I'd like to wait until something else came along, she all but pushed me out the door and I've never heard a thing from them since. The whole experience was terrible.

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: Everything

Do not waste your time with this Agency! I agree with all other posts as my experience was exactly the same. I am an EA with over 20 years of experience. They never called me for any position. I was much more successful with another firm and on my own. Very odd and usual in how they conduct business. I am surprised that they still exist.

I am amused at the other reviews I've read about The Hadden Group. I very rarely leave reviews on my experiences unless I have an absolutely exceptional experience. But, my motivation in writing this review is to bring attention to a business that irrefutably feels superior to every person seeking for help finding employment. My experience with The Hadden Group was extremely insulting and degrading. I had recently relocated to Nashville, with no existing local contacts and was seeking the help of "professionals." When I walked through their doors, I felt confident and excited. These feelings shortly turned into dissapointment and concern. I have never been made to feel so unimportant with my professional background. My experience goes way beyond they field I work in and my salary requirements were extremely conservative. However, there was an absolute effort to dissolve my confidence and undercut my capabilites. Unlike, some of the other reviews, I WAS set up in interviews. Interviews for positions I am completely overqualified for and were significantly under my salary requirements.
When I explained this to Cynthia Hadden, she said I would need to accept these positions because it was highly unlikely that I would be considered for the positions I wanted. I never had a chance from the moment I walked through their doors.
Thankfully, now I am acting CEO of a prominent Nashville based business. I have found a rewarding position in a field I have always exceled in no thanks to the Hadden Group.
Your much better off doing your own footwork. They are a complete waste of time.

Cons: Extremely unprofessional and rude.

I called about a job that was posted by them on careerbuilder. After 2 seconds of talking to me the lady told me, very rudely, that I was unqualified for this job. Fine, ok. She then asked me to send her my resume. I did so with hopes of being called or emailed back with a next step in the job hunting process. Nothing..... that was 2 weeks ago and I have yet to hear back from Gwen at the Hadden Group. Although I do not feel as bad now after reading the other reviews. I'm now glad that I have not been contacted! If you want to be told your inferior and then never hear back from them, then this is the place for you.

Cons: very unfriendly staff

They found a Great Job for a friend of mine so great in fact that her representative took the position right out from underneath her. While tellin her how great they thought she was. I have no problem with someone leaving the Hadden group for another company, but she should have passed my friends file on to someone else and made the process at least fair. They did the most unethical thing I could ever imagine. I would not EVER use this establishment for services.

Cons: No Ethics

TERRIBLE! These "professionals" treated me as though I was an infant with no experience whatsoever. The women act like they run a sorority house instead of a staffing business acting too-good and never returning your phone calls. Don't waste your time.

I am an Executive and went through this company. I was not placed nor even called back. They only want to place you with no conversations, nor meetings to even get to know the person on paper. You will be very lucky if you find a position through this group. If being treated poorly, enjoying no responses via email or phone, or feeling like this company will not help as they advertise, then the Hadden Group is who you should consult with.

These recruiters will not work with you if you are out of state. I was actually yelled at and hung up on. When I did make it in for an interview of sorts--a quick 5 minutes and I was brushed off--NEVER to be contacted again. I've left two voicemails and sent two emails...it's been a over a week...still nothing.

Pros: Wide variety of jobs

Cons: The staff is very hard to deal with

.

If you are looking for an agency that cares more about placing you in the best fit possible than their own fee, look elsewhere. A good recruiter will try to build up your confidence or tells you what you can do to tweak your resume, not undermine you when you need their help. This is an agency with high maintenance egos, high recruiter turnover, and while the jobs look polished and just what you need, they will make you feel as though even though you don't measure up, they will still try to make a halfhearted effort. Save yourself some time and try to find an agency with heart.
