    Pros

    Having recently joined the company, I have just completed my initial 3 day induction course hosted and delivered by Paul Kimberley. I can honestly say it was one of, if not the most informative, challenging but also eye opening courses I have ever taken part in. The content is certainly relevant, and it is delivered with the up most passion and structure. For anybody soon to be joining or sitting the course, I would say enjoy it, learn from it and don't be afraid to take part.

    Cons

    There are no cons to this course. Just ensure you focus and be prepared to change your outlook on a lot of processes and assumptions.

    Pros

    - Successful and ambitious company - Very driven CEO and senior management - Really liked my team members - Good initial training - Not as 'cut-throat' as many other agencies - Exciting times ahead it seems! Sad to be leaving

    Cons

    - 360 recruitment isn't for me - Upheaval in my team (Bad timing, not the companies fault) - Some of the senior management have their favourites, and make this very obvious. (This is the case at any company I'm sure)

    Advice to Management

    None!

    Pros

    Loved my co-workers and the branch manager. Couldn’t get a better team environment. All the team support each other and recognise each others achievements. They encourage progression within the business and value their employees.

    Cons

    Training is not role specific and may put people outside their comfort zone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    I would say the best thing about working for Huntress was being in charge of my own desk and having the ability to create my own success.

    Cons

    I felt that I would have benefited from a more structured training plan to achieve greater results and to help me develop as a consultant.

    Advice to Management

    One thing I would change would be as mentioned above, is to have a structured training program in place for new and existing Consultants.

    Pros

    Great company with great vision, values, countless opportunities and prospects. I have worked for different organisations in my time and from the first call that I received from a lovely and professional Huntress Consultant about my current role, through to my interviews and the welcome that I received from everyone in all divisions, teams and branches at Huntress I received nothing but a welcoming and supportive response. This was all the way from the CEO, the Directors and all members of the staff. I knew I had made the right choice in accepting this offer and have had no regrets about turning down the others. There are great opportunities for progression here with continues recognition by senior members of staff and everyone else. Reward and Recognition is accessible to everyone. With an open door policy, the CEO and Directors are really open to suggestions and feedback from their staff and they recognise when change may be needed. The development and success of their staff is very much at the heart of Huntress and it is shown daily by the 5 Values that is followed by everyone at any level within this organisation. The Corporate support teams are the essential part of the business, supporting the business in every aspect possible. It is full of amazing people, which their years of service at Huntress Group speaks for itself. It doesn’t matter which team you are from, everyone is willing to help one another out and with the introduction of the CSR teams has brought people from different teams closer whilst they organise some great activies for some amazing causes. Its great to see a company wher by the Board of Directors has such a huge focus on their employees, because I believe that every company has room for better improvements and growth to be even more successful, but to recognise this and actually invest so much in its people is not something that you see every day. However, Huntress Group is an exception in this area. If you are looking for career progression, really friendly atmospheres with great team work ethics, opportunity for development, transparency and weekly updates to the whole business, earn great money, have lots of fun and make some great friends while you do all of this, then you need to come and experience it for yourself at Huntress Group.…. I promise you will not regret it!!

    Cons

    We have some good company benefits available to staff, but they need updating. They can be much greater so that they stand out within the bigger market. I know this is already in progress and is in discussion with changes due to be signed off and introduced in the new year. So I am looking forward to seeing these signed off and announced to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the changes that you have implemented and continue to recognise and reward the employees both in your sales and corporate divisions. keep up with the tranparency and consistancy, this is very important. You have some amazinng people with great passion, team ethics and values. This can't be achieved by just one person or a small group of people, so lets all work together to main this and help Huntress grow for the success of the business, our reputation within the market and for the employees personal growth and development.

    Pros

    I worked for Huntress 2.5 years ago and what I have noticed is that there has been a massive change in the company culture. Before, it was quite a competitive and cut-throat atmosphere and there was an overwhelming pressure to hit targets and make lots of commission. Now that I have returned, things have certainly changed for the better. All the consultants are now on the same sales floor, so there is more of a cohesive business culture, and the atmosphere is much less pressurized. The consultants are friendly and supportive of each other and there is much more of a customer service focus to the way they work, rather than an overly pushy sales approach. What is really exciting is the new training programme they have introduced. Rather than being thrown in at the deep end, new employees benefit from a 13 week ‘Route to Success’ course which introduces them to the way things work at Huntress and supports them from the outset. Everything just seems more tailored to helping the consultants get the most from their career, and in turn makes Huntress a nicer place to work.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of improvements and I can see the company shaping up to be a great place to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep living the new values. It is definitely making a difference!

    Pros

    Really good social atmosphere, given freedom to do your own work, but in a structured environment. Great training and nice managers.

    Cons

    Dated recruitment technology and oddly info is not shared across the company. Apparently this is being fixed next year though.

    Advice to Management

    Work together as a group, more commission would always be nice.

    Pros

    difficult to find many; good initial training, good training manager

    Cons

    firstly the time with initial training is sporadic at best and alot of the good ideas given to you are impossible to implement with the jealous managers who want you to fit their mould. very much a hire and fire culture 6/8 people i started work with are not working there 4 months down the line. very much kpi driven no freedom to work things out for yourself. worst is the thresholds, have a vivid recollection of a consultant asking another what they would do with the bonus from the job they just 'banged up', the reply was nothing as they didn't reach the threshold. i saw this same consultant working passed half 8 for over a week to get to that placement and she had been working in the company for over a year. very simple if you have the desire to be in recruitment work in an up and coming company like the one I'm with now if you have been in both the difference is unbelievable, do your research and stay away from huntress.

    Advice to Management

    go on management courses or quit

    Pros

    - Independent job, if you do it very very well. - Uni-style friday nights, with more suits. - Meet/talk to lots of new people.

    Cons

    - Money-orientated sales environment. - You're seen for the money you make, and micromanaged down to your daily stats.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the bigger picture of your employees, instead of picking at the pointless details, LISTEN to them.
