I have been working at Brine Group Staffing Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Small privately owned company with direct access and influence to CEO and Senior Management. Convenient location. Rewarded for working hard and they see it. My role has evolved over my tenure at Brine and I have had the opportunity to focus on the aspects that I am passionate about. Recruiters are given training and support, the tools they need to succeed. Ramp up period is challenging but once they have developed a client base and the rhythm, everything usually falls into place. Culture is good, work hard play hard. Management is understanding when it comes to family matters and emergencies, but they hold everyone accountable.

Cons

Because company is small, upward mobility is limited for administration. Need the volume to justify hiring another admin, but growth rate has been slow. Recruiters can move into more aggressive commission plans as they mature in their role and gain experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on growing the strengths and weeding out the weaknesses. Build consistency with employee morale. Benefits can be improved.

    Pros

    They hire great people who are fun to work with for the brief time they are there.

    Cons

    Nobody stays there for several reasons. New recruiters are not supported enough, the culture allows managers to compete with those they manage, sometimes unfairly, and there is a lot of pressure to submit candidates who may be unqualified or shaky to clients. The healthcare group is the worst to work in. Employees are not valued unless they are making a lot of money for the company, and if recruiters have a bad month, they are not treated that well. The Manager does not support all of the recruiters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a real manager and use best practices instead of flying by the seats of your pants.

    Pros

    Easy location for most commuters. Good ability to advertise your positions and compete with your clients ads. Unlimited ability to place ads for jobs so that candidates see your ads before seeing the client's ads. The tech group has a little longevity and is well managed.

    Cons

    The Healthcare group has extraordinarily high turnover and at present has no recruiters other than the owner. Morale is very poor in that group when there are recruiters in it, due to the manage by numbers mentality. Also, you are expected to recruit candidates away from current clients.There is no quality vetting of candidates. There is a possible history of fuzzy math with commissions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on tech recruiting where you already succeed. Work on treating employees with more respect.
