What Kind of Time Commitment Does SPI Require From Your Hiring Manger?

​​We minimize the amount of time we request from hiring managers. All in, we’ll need about 3 hours of your time during the first 4 weeks of the hiring process (before the interviews). We need about 2 hours for the initial meeting, about an hour a week later to review a few candidate profiles and to approve the recruiting message. Then we won’t need much of your time until the interviews. 

How Long Will the Search Take?

​​The advantage of having a predictable recruiting process is being able to answer questions like this simply, and without saying, "Well, it depends..." If your search fits neatly into one of our most common search profiles, you can find out how long it will take from your first meeting with us, until your job offer is accepted. Throw in two to four weeks so your new hire can give notice to their current employer, and you'll know their start date.


CSO/EVP/SVP/VP/NSM of Sales Searches:  7 to 8 weeks


Frontline Sales Manager Searches:  5 to 6 weeks


Sales Professional Searches:  4 to 5 weeks
