I worked at Brooksource full-time for more than a year

Pros

Young, driven work force
Room for growth (more so a few years ago when opening more offices)

Cons

Lack of communication between management and employers
Way too low of base pay with unrealistic commission structure
Volatile industry - staffing is rewarding, but not luxurious by any means
Interview process is very misleading and very unorganized
Last day of training consists of a test (mostly to weed out the ones who "can't hang") in which you'll be extremely hungover for - seemed a bit unprofessional, but grabs the appeal of the fresh-out-of-college jobseeker

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Goals are visited quarterly, but no check-ins or help from management
Management is not in-tune with work atmosphere, strictly numbers (mostly because their pay is numbers based)

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great place to work with a young, fun environment. You can grow as a young professional if you are successful in your current role.

    Cons

    The staffing industry is hard and not for everyone. While the group is young a fun, it takes hard work to be successful.
