Pros

None at all at this stage

Cons

Recruiters never return phone calls and use reception staff and automated software to short-list applicants. On the odd chance that you actually speak to a recruiter, they often have no specialist knowledge of the sector they recruit for. Reception staff act as gatekeepers and are rude and insulting at best. Recruiters should not list their contact details if they have no intention of responding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice
