    Pros

    Its my experience after reading some of these posts that the Call Center employees were not clear on what the company does. It is both a Financial Planning and Job Placement company because many company investment plans can only be turned over in between jobs without a penalty or fee...so it makes sense that a placement company would offer both.

    Cons

    I think that management was not clear enough in ensuring that ALL employees understood fully what the objective was. While I was working there as a project manager I did hear grumblings especially from the Call Center about what they were doing and how much they were paid. My advice for any of the current or ex employees is Ask if you are not sure, get a different job if you don't like the pay or benefit...and before you post make sure you understand what your company does because its right there on the front page of the company website- financial planning and job placement.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company

    Cons

    They post fake positions, so that candidates will apply to the positions. Once they have your contact information they try to sell you financial products. Instead of posing as a recruiting company they should just advertise themselves as offering retirement planning and financial services.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to the public!

    Pros

    Employees are hardworking and well-intentioned.

    Cons

    Company platform is dishonest, pursuing people who are seeking new employment opportunities, and trying to get them to schedule meetings with financial planners. Why don't they just advertise their objectives, honestly?

    Advice to Management

    Create a transparent business model that targets people in the market for financial planning services, and not placement services.

    Pros

    It seems like a legit company at first....

    Cons

    Bait and switch.....you're telling people you're a recruiter, but you are really just vetting people to see if they have retirement accounts and trying to set up a meeting with a retirement specialist.

    Pros

    I worked at CPR my career for 4 years. During this time I had one child. They were wonderful with my appointments and always working around my schedule. They really care about people. They really cared about me. When I had my second child and my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I could no longer work with them but they were really concerned with me and also making sure that the people I worked with who trusted us to help them find a job were well looked after. I think they are great and they do a good job getting people back to work.

    Cons

    No real cons here. They are really great people.

    Advice to Management

    Getting a job is stressful and CPR works with a lot of stressed out people who take cheap shots at them when they don't get hired as fast as they would like. But the reality is, some people are not hireable because of their personal issues or they really don't want to work. When you work with the public anyone can say anything and theres not much anyone can do about so you have to see for yourself.

    Pros

    we help everyone vs the select few needed to fill the jobs. there are some who need our services more than others, but if understood and followed correctly..it can greatly improve a person's struggle in finding employment. the best part is hearing from a client/candidate that they are so grateful for the guidance and help and the care we give them when all other hope was lost for them!

    Cons

    a little slower than a traditional Recruiting firm. but that's only because they help each person, qualified for a job or not. no other recruiting firm even reaches out a second time to those they don't need for that certain job.
    the other con is talking to closed mind people who are rude and judgmental. annoying

    Advice to Management

    I think ultimately the assistantd as well as the recruiting section. need to come together and make sure the ones on the calls with each candidate understand the Recruiting part of the process more so when conveyed to others its not misunderstood or taken as a sales pitch, scam or a hoax. the employees on the calls with these people are the legs of the company. to get the message out right, everyone needs to work WITH each other within..
