    I worked at Computer Merchant full-time (more than an year)


    Will hire you fresh out of school.
    Very structured environment when it comes to expectations.
    Some of the senior recruiters are really good people.


    To add some context I was a recruiter with them for a little over a year. I was fairly successful when it came to placing people.

    Fake Glassdoor posts- In 2010 TCML received a multitude of negative reviews. I was instructed (not asked) to write a positive review so they could improve their online image. Take anything you read after 2010 with a grain of salt.

    No work life balance- Mandatory 50 hour work week. Monday-Friday 8:00am-6:00pm. Don't be late and don't leave early or else you will be ostracized.

    Commission is awful- I made the company $30,000 gross profit a month (which was also my base salary) and received only $1,200 in commission a month (thats <5%). But what they won't tell you is that anyone you hire is required to have a background check and drug test. 100% of that cost comes directly out of your commission. If someone fails the test or doesn't show up for work you are still on the hook for that cost.

    Commission is awful (2)- When I was hired I was promised 6% of gross profit I generated (not great to begin with). That year they restructured commission payouts 3 times and eventually reduced it to ~4.5% for recruiters. John Danieli bought an Aston Martin that year.

    Internally competitive- You will sit next to someone who is recruiting on the same job you are so you better cold call as many people you can before your colleague does.

    No recruiting Diversity: No other tools and no other methods besides spam and cold calling
    Step 1: Create query in the only database the company has (which just pulls resumes from Monster, Dice, Indeed, ect.)
    Step 2: Send out automated spam email to people in that database.
    Step 3: Cold call as many people as you can- you better hit your 75 calls per day target or else you are in trouble.

    Vindictive management- They will try to sue you if you leave. When you join they will have you sign a non-compete clause. You have 1 year FROM THE TIME YOU LEAVE where you are not allowed to be a recruiter anywhere else (paraphrasing how their contract reads).
    I was fired for passively looking for a job. The manager tracked my email which is how he found out. I was called into his office and this is what he said, "I know you interviewed at another company. You are terminated from the system effective immediately. This is the biggest professional mistake of your life, now clean out your desk. Good luck finding a job." (I was hired by that other company that same day thankfully)
    2 Months later, at my new job, I received a cease and desist letter from their lawyer saying if I didn't quit I would have to appear in court. I was lucky that my company's lawyer defended me because some other people were not as fortunate.

    No training- You better read up on the technology you will be recruiting for because no one is going to teach you. Very sink or swim.

    No advancement- It is a rigid system where people do not get promoted. They will move you out before they move you up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I was there I saw 10 people get fired and 1 person have mental breakdown. The team size was only 20 recruiters. Thats 50% attrition in a year. These people have families and career aspirations, you should treat them with respect and pay them fairly. Also, John, stop skulking around the recruiting pit and let people do their job.
