    Pros

    Autonomy in work, able to conduct my own interviews, and freedom to schedule and call candidates in my own time frame. Got along great with co-workers, flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Lacked clear communication on which jobs received placements, new job orders and job details seemed disorganized making it harder to do my job, I wished there were more tools to source candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Try utilizing an automated or computerized system to make it easy for staffing coordinators to keep track of what jobs need to be filled and provide details and specific job descriptions for each job and/or client
