    Its takes a lot of focus and determination to be a recruiter, and you will always be swamped with work!

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at BBG Management full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Commission structure, rewards top performers. I have earned over 100k the past 2 years, increasing each year.
    Never a shortage of clients or business coming in
    Fun events, Sens tickets, casual environment, fun people
    Good place to learn and get experience in a lucrative industry
    Positive outlook for future, consistent growth

    Cons

    Many people who come in as one of their first jobs in sales do not understand that this is not a 9-5 government job, you need to drive your own success. Like any sales job, there are targets, there is pressure.

    Pros

    Working at BBG is one of the great opportunities you could get as a young professional - great and knowledgeable management that will help you learn and succeed. The work at BBG is challenging work in nature; if you're willing to learn and go the extra miles on the job, the reward is great!If you want 11 paid stat holidays,9-5 job, sit in your cubicle doing the same tasks every day and forget about work after business hours...This is not a job for you!

    BBG's management management is very generous, although it's a start up. I had experience working at a mid-size company where they make great profit but is not willing to spend a dime on their employee. BBG has corporate events all year round where the company takes care of all the costs, pizzas and cakes for every employee's bday.

    Cons

    As a start-up, the processes are still being established and things are always changing so for some people it can be frustrated.

    Most stressful experience working with the most incompetent stubborn boss

    Former Employee - Recruiter in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Recruiter in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I worked at BBG Management full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -The events that were held every month or so were great at the start but started to lose their spark as more and more people were fired

    -Paid lunches every few weeks or so

    Cons

    -You are expected to work 24/7 to succeed

    -Expected to survive financially for 3 months on their internship pay of $400 A MONTH. They promise you commission if you do well but the commission is not paid out until 3 months. This is due to bad management of cash flow as BBG does not pay your commission until the client pays BBG.

    -No vacation pay

    -Lack of respect and professionalism

    -Fascism type leadership and false sense of organizational improvement from employee feedback

    -Zero notice upon being terminated

    -Can be fired without a legitimate reason like a teenage romance. "You're just not working out for us"

    -High turnover rate

    -Instead of focusing on individual strength management sets out to clone you

    -You don't receive commission pay half the time due to terrible clients or poor management

    -One small washroom shared with all employees. You could not spread your arms and spin around in there if you wanted to

    -Upper management has recently encouraged employees to write fake positive reviews on Glassdoor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on nurturing individuals strengths instead of trying to clone them to be like you. Your methods are clearly not working and very outdated.

    Have a more solid commission structure

    And also the 3 month internship at $400 a month is unfair. Either pay minimum wage or cut the timeline in half. "If you pay peanuts you're going to get monkeys"

    BBG Management houses a disorganized and unethical work environment. There is an overall lack of professionalism.

    I worked at BBG Management full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I liked the compensation through the commission structure. I also enjoyed the seasons tickets to Senators games. There was no real opportunity to advance within this organization.

    Cons

    Lack of training and disclosure to employees. Lack of communication from management. Lack of an Human Resources departement to vocalize concerns in the work place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A training program in place. Identifying objectives so they can successfully be met. Overall professionalism

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at BBG Management.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING. This company is terrible. They treat their employees like they're idiots, constantly use verbal abuse to scare them into doing what they want, and threaten to fire you every two weeks if you don't follow their protocols or get sales. They don't understand that you can't force people to take jobs. They don't pay commission, and if you leave or are fired, they will not pay you the commission you are owed. I had a friend who has worked there since January and didn't see one cent of commission until two days ago. They constantly told him they'd "lost" his paperwork to show he did the close. Terrible company and not worth your time. Find a company who aren't just a start up and who actually know what they are doing. Run by middle aged men who look at your cleavage and butt as you walk by (if you are female). Terrible, terrible place to work, I don't want anyone else to get screwed over. I am to be owed over $1,500, but they "lost" my paperwork, and are now only offering $350 to compensate me. They expect you to work 24/7 and get mad when you try and explain that you have a life outside of work.
