I have been in recruiting for 25 years and an employee of first Pro for the last ten and can tell you without a doubt that it is one of the only firms I am aware of where your earnings are uncapped and you are given a tremendous platform to be successful. The truth of the matter is when you read the negative reviews about First PRO they are written by overwhelming under performers who take zero responsibility for their failures! There are no religious undertones and being a completely secular person I have NEVER in ten years felt pressure or be made to feel uncomfortable with anyone's religious beliefs! It is a place if you work hard and perform you are rewarded handsomely and given given every opportunity to grow financially and professionally!! The owners are two of the most generous people I have ever met and know that in times of great distress that both would be in my corner and I know I could count ion in times of need!

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FirstPRO (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2015.
The single strangest interviewing experience I've ever had. I had an initial phone interview with the recruiting manager, which seemed pretty standard. I had a lot of hesitations about interviewing after reading some really bad reviews on here and other sites, but the conversation went well enough that I figured I would agree to take the next step. Next I had an in person interview over dinner with the recruiting manager and the owner's son-in-law. It went well enough that at the end they asked, at their suggestion, that I come in the office early one morning to meet with the CEO. 5 days went by and I arranged my schedule to be there bright and early. 3 days before the final interview, however, I received an email from the recruiter who submitted me for the position letting me know that they had decided to move onto other candidates and the reason I was given was that I was unwilling to go to their office during normal business hours. Huh? Wait. They told the recruiter that I had suggested coming in at that early time. Now none of this makes sense because if that time was unacceptable and I had suggested it, why wouldn't they have just said then and there it wasn't acceptable? Why? Because it didn't happen that way. So now I'm thinking this must be a mistake, so I reach out to the hiring manager for clarification. Indeed, a short time later I received a reply berating me for not making myself available during normal business hours. As you can guess, now I'm angry, the recruiter is confused, and no one had any explanations. The recruiting manager said at the end of the message he would reach out to me once they completed their search to possibly move forward. After discussing this situation with the recruiter, we both agreed that this was not the opportunity for me, so I wrote the recruiting manager a message asking to pull me from this and any future opportunities. I just couldn't work under someone who had outright lied about me and in doing so damaged my reputation as a candidate in the marketplace. So be very careful when dealing with them. They are most likely wasting your time or worse. Also don't believe what your told about them. I did some research before my first interview and most of the things I was told to be very misleading, a 5 min search on Google will clear everything up, which is why I had hesitations before I even interviewed. And after all of that, you're still comfortable continuing, more power to you.
- I was never asked any real or traditional interview questions, more of a conversation of how they do things and how I do things. Answer Question
