    Pros

    If you are a recent graduate looking interested in trying recruitment then they are worth contacting Great stepping stone for progressing on to roles with other companies Training was of a respectable standard. Requirement for all new starters to learn about their industry which is very helpful for when discussing with candidates/clients Chance to experience living in a new country Friendly environment with helpful colleagues Good social life Some of the senior management were extremely helpful The company finds accommodation for new starters

    Cons

    Very target driven role, with unrealistic targets which no one in the company ever achieved Guidance on how you were meant to achieve these targets generally consisted of a combination put downs and an instruction to "make more calls" even though the calling list had been called through numerous times Location is essentially a small city in the middle of nowhere, if you're not willing to travel then it will feel like you are living a very isolated existence Salary is so poor it is unreal, I actually lost money with this job Many promises were broken Promotion 1. takes too long (for the salary you start off with you need to be promoted within a few months to start earning commission, otherwise you will not have enough money to afford food) 2. is almost impossible to achieve, a small number of people were lucky enough to be promoted but the promotions only started happening after unhappy staff started leaving Staff retention is awful, of the people who were there when I was, approximately half have left for other roles, some even leaving with no future role lined up. Favouritism between the teams, the team which had the hardest roles to fill NEVER received any rewards/extra incentive, however those who worked on much easier roles were often taken out for company paid meals by their line manager despite not achieving their targets You were EXPECTED to work additional hours with no reward or recompense. Staff were pressured to work from 8am - 8pm every day & to work the weekends / bank holidays with no breaks / lunches - if you did decide to eat then you were expected to do so at your desk whilst working Atmosphere of do as we say, not as we do from senior staff who regularly would disappear for extended lunch meetings, arrived just before the day started and left as soon as they could most days The company charges staff a high rent for the accommodation they set up for new starters in comparison to properties offered by private landlords in the area

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff a reasonable wage, don't lie when recruiting new employees, be fair with rewards
