Really good career move for me!

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

I've been in the hospitality industry working for a very low wage and tips. HealthCare Scouts gave me the chance to learn about staffing and work in a professional setting and still make commission. I've made over $85,000 a year the past couple of years. Wouldn't have made that in waiting tables where I was. Plus I have MUCH better schedule!

Cons

A better 401k plan or implement a profit sharing plan for employees.

    Pros

    Solid compensation that includes competitive base + commissions. Several award & recognition incentives that are performance based including car incentive plan, access to beach condos and annual company trip!

    Cons

    Be ready to put some skin in the game which isn't bad in a production environment. You will work along side a few people that want to ride without contributing which won't work for long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share more kudos in open forum and announce when the condo gets awarded. This is an excellent incentive especially here in sunny Florida! The CEO recently put a new COO in place that is really doing great things. Lots of fresh ideas and nice movement in employee morale and motivation. Nice move!

    Healthcare Scouts: Not a Great Place to Be

    Current Employee - Account Executive/Recruiter in Winter Park, FL

    Pros

    Decent entry level pay for their recruiting positions (which only require a HS Diploma).

    Start at $30k/year, but the schedule is 7:30 AM - 5:30 PM (50 hrs/week). Equates to $11.53/hr (no overtime, as the position is salaried).

    Tyler (President) and Danielle (Senior Manager) are well-qualified and enjoyable to work with, despite some of the counter-intuitive policies which are in place.

    Cons

    They will not hesitate to fire you without any type of performance warning. After your month-long probationary period, you will be immediately terminated if you are not placing candidates and producing revenue, despite how many good candidates you have found. If they are not hired by the client's HR dept, you will not be paid commission and you will be inching closer to termination.

    Managers play favorites, which result in certain individuals having more submittals/placements (earning more money), and leaves other hard working employees working harder for less money and in constant worry about their job stability.

    There is no teamwork in the company - a culture of competition is promoted. The employees are encouraged to contact any candidate they find, regardless of if that candidate is working with another Healthcare Scouts recruiter. This results in inter-office tension, which is exacerbated by the fact that you will be terminated for not placing candidates, even if another co-worker took the individual you were working with. This also makes the company appear disorganized to potential candidates, since they have multiple recruiters with the same company attempting to call them and offer them the same job.

    You must wait AT LEAST 90-120 days (some cases over 6 months) before receiving commission for a placement. If you have a bad week or two with no placements during that time frame, you will be immediately terminated and not receive the commission you were owed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refine and streamline your submittal process. Stop playing favorites and evaluate everyone's candidates equally. It is only a matter of time before you face a wrongful termination lawsuit.

    Eliminate the nepotism and encourage teamwork to promote a fun culture. Do away with the current tense culture, where back-stabbing is promoted (and almost required) to keep your job and place candidates.
