    Pros

    These guys know there stuff, and I have learned so much in a short time. Lots of training, but you are expected to apply the training you learn and grow. Great daily, monthly, quarterly and yearly contests - Including trips. Those are revolved around production....so to be there you are expected to make placements.

    You will be on the phone - but that allows you to learn the market from all angles.

    You are handling both sides of the deal which means you are in control of the applicants and the employers needs and filling them.

    There is a base plus commission (some previous posts say otherwise). It's a graduated rate up to 50%.

    Cons

    It is an open environment and can get loud, so you have to be able to be comfortable with that and this also requires you to be doing what is expected of you - making phone calls to companies, interviewing applicants. I believe it is designed that way to promote your hot needs, and make sure everyone can be on the same page - But could be distracting.

    Advice to Management

    More role-playing, and sales training.
