    Former Employee - Recruiter in Houston, TX

    I worked at Emergent Professional Resources full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Emergent still preaches the "start-up culture", and there are some benefits to that - i.e. you get some half days, and on weekends you can drink at the office
    -The commission structure is not bad
    -Co-workers are all young, and they only hire who gets along with others, so you have good co-workers

    Cons

    -No medical benefits, no 401K matching, no set paid time off - your vacation time is given by following the "just don't overdo it" rule
    -No work-life balance
    -You are measured on about 15 different metrics and give you grades (A-F) each quarter - you could be the highest earning recruiter but "fail" in your call volume, or the number of interview you have, and they will reprimand you for it
    -High turnover makes for a "worried" culture

    Emergent has been in business for about 7 years now, and has not grown in size at all. They have never had more than 6 recruiters at one time because it's so difficult to keep people on board.

    If you're wanting an Outside Sales career with a reputable company, Emergent starts you as a Recruiter to "learn the way they do things" They promise a window of 6-8-12 months as a Recruiter, before you're moved over to an Account Manager. It's good in theory, but then recruiters don't stay and Emergent doesn't have the manpower to justify moving another person into Sales. It's a never ending circle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My biggest advice: remove the administrative duties from the recruiter's plates.
    Don't make them format resumes, and document everything, and fill out the lengthy weekly reports. That is not the standard for agency recruiters, and that's a huge time-suck.... Recruiters could be making calls & placements instead of "doing documentation"
    At least it's a start.
