    Pros

    After reading previous reviews, I thought it fair to tell the other side of the page story. The basic is better than the majority of recruitment firms. Guess what, if you make money you get money, if you don't, recruitment isn't for you. That's not a bad thing.. It isn't for everyone. Guess what else, if you don't bill your manager may look into stats to see where we are going wrong. If KPI's scare you recruitment isn't for you. I have been with the company for 2 years in the UK and have been supported throughout my time there. I have been promoted twice probably because I like KPI's and as a result I make money... Recruitment must be for me. I've had a couple of months where I haven't hit target, but at no point did I feel insecure. If you want a job there are many firms to choose from. If you want a career you come to Page. However... It's a business so you have to make money... Like all businesses that stay in business.

    Cons

    If you are starting a new market eg in the US or new sector, it's hard work. However the opportunities are bigger and more frequent. with growth comes opportunity. You are essentially your own business with corporate backing. There is a lot of pressure when you run your own business. Better your manager telling you how it is then your bank manager telling you that you are bankrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing but manage expectations when hiring staff. If they aren't aware they will be KPI'd as an essential part of their succession plan they may get confused as the previous reviews have. If the don't like hitting KPI's and don't get a 360 degree recruitment process including bringing in the "no hopers" for meetings this type of work isn't right for them. All sales environments have a high turnover of staff, this is normal, if everybody could do it we wouldn't be paid so well:)

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at PageGroup (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First you fill out paperwork and speak to someone who asks all the normal interview questions. Then you take an aptitude survey that will determine how good you will be at sales. Then you meet with another person and do a role play. Then they will call you back and repeat the process 1-3 times.
