A company that feels like a school (and not in a good way)

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Pros- Decent commission if you perform well
- Opportunity to interact with your clients' HR/business managers as well as senior candidates
- Good stepping stone if you're a fresh grad and keen in recruitment on a long term basis

Cons- Management treats employees like school kids (e.g. pay a fine if you're late for work. I wish i'm kidding)
- Excessive micromanagement from team leaders
- Treats non-confirmed staff like garbage
- Poor benefits (e.g. no off in lieu if a holiday falls on Saturday. Reason being "Saturday is supposed to be a work day")
- Sub-par management, inability to motivate staff
- Too sales driven to the point of entirely forgoing the human element. Sales is king mentality
- Very limited career prospects internally. To progress to a true headhunter, look elsewhere

    A very sales oriented place where you have to compete against one and other and at the mean time have team work.

    Pros: - Build your confident level - Improve your communication skill - Learn… Cons: - Everyone just care about completing the sales. - Welfare not provided (Remember to bring your own stationery from home on your first day of work) -… Advice to Senior Management: - This is the world of Information, 1 staff should have 1 computer. Sharing a computer will not improve productivity but on the other hand… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    An initial eye-opener, then an anti-climatic routine of shot,pray, spray.

    Temp Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee)

    I worked at Recruit Express


    Pros: Allows everyday interaction with different people from different walks of life. Opportunity to see beyond the office… Cons: Consultants seem more focused on quotas and numbers rather than the needs of the people, which might be attributed to management's intense focus on sales… Advice to Senior Management: More focus on the human touch rather than a bueracratic mechanism for mass recruiting so that consultants are allowed the freedom to pursue soft approaches… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
