I have been working at Hays plc full-time

Pros

Great training and a fantastic opportunity for those straight out of University to develop their knowledge of the Recruitment industry.

Cons

Those managing are appointed on the basis of being good recruiters, rather than good managers. Salaries are not the greatest at Hays, and the commission structure is poor- "Advise your clients they need to be competitive in this market"!!!

£16.5k basic for Associates
£22k basic for Recruitment Consultants
£24k basic for Senior Consultants

More leavers in 13/14 than any previous years. There will always be a higher turnover of staff in the recruitment industry, but Hays are losing quality staff and need to work on retaining them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To be a good manager you need to be adaptable as each employee will have a different learning style.

Doesn't Recommend
