I have been working at Lucas Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

+ Unlimited earning potential, it is hard work but it pays.
+ The people are great - a lot of fun activities and events.
+ Provide Excellent Resources; systems, marketing, research, great office building/location
+ Most managers are fun, motivating, and helpful, not the typical overbearing you see in most agencies, treat you like an adult and don't micromanage you
+ They have a lot of tenured recruiters, very established
+ The different divisions provide a lot of opportunities to break into new companies
+ Tech support is quick, responsive

Cons

- 100% draw/commission
- The increasing goals to make the Sales Incentive Trip - As you increase in title, you win the same trip but have to bill twice as much to "earn" it
- There are times when it is very loud and hard to concentrate, there are a lot of distractions and people in the office talking
- The Internet is very slow, waste a lot of time waiting for it to load pages

Advice to ManagementAdvice

! Management should be more flexible with work schedules, working from home.
! Research and identifying candidates should be considered when evaluating phone time, etc.
! Employees should not have to purchase company logo items to send out to their clients and prospects - these should be made available
! Get faster, more reliable Internet service

    7+ years in Lucas Group with no prior recruiting experience = I made it!

    I worked at Lucas Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The environment, the management was nice

    Cons

    I was lied to in my interviews, the opportunities they said were there were not at all. I came in under peculiar circumstances, and I'm sure it wasn't expected that I'd have the experience that I did. But no one said anything or asked questions until it was time to leave.
