Pros

Flexible work schedule, as well as a fun working environment. Things at corporate are very loose which allows for you to smile a lot throughout the day.

Cons

A lot of broken promises. Your supervisors tend to tell you one thing but then turn around and do the opposite. If you are not a suck-up, you are viewed as a problem. Too much favoritism takes place and it's blatant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to how supervisors treat the associates. It's easy to pin-point which ones are terrible leaders. Also, please promote internally more, it's aggrivating to see outsiders getting promotional jobs while not allowing your in-house staff to get the chance.

    Pros

    Coworkers are young so you can easily relate to your coworkers. Can be yourself at work. Company outings. Chance to network. Great training. Little to no micromanaging (really depends on the account manager you're under).

    Cons

    NO work life balance. Underpaid for the amount of work done. Have to interview for EVERY SINGLE POSITION you apply for within the company. Plenty of offices nationwide, but if you want to transfer you have to interview for the same position you are already in. If they find out you're looking for work you will be fired. Non compete has to be signed before starting work. 50 + hour work week at least (salaried, so no overtime). Takes forever to receive commission status. VERY stressful most of the time. The don't really hire older people (older to this company is 26 and up). They prefer recent college graduates. Feels like a cult. Recruiter workload is very heavy with an insane to do list, so it's impossible to do everything they ask AND provide great customer service at the same time. Your success will be determined by the division you are in and the number of recruiters in that division. This job/company will come before everything in your life to be successful there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher base salaries for recruiters. Actually train the Account Managers to be managers, because many of them have no idea how to supervise. Don't avoid seasoned candidates just because you want to start everyone off at $33,000/yr. Stop aiming for a "young office only" attitude and find some good recruiters that have previous experience. Stop releasing so many initiatives all at once so we can remember at least one of them and how they could benefit us.

    Pros

    Okay in replying to your request while employeed/on assignment with them.

    Cons

    Not great in communicating when your assignment ended. Got the call that assignment ended on a Sunday night at 10:30 PM, the night before heading back to the office Monday morning. Given a great review over a phone message - but hard to get the recruiting manager on the phone in the weeks after to work on another assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication from Recruiters.
