Honestly the WORST place to work ever (go on LinkedIn and email anyone who ever worked there)

IT Recruiter (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

Pros- High turnover results in junior members to have access to all clients (the best and the worst)
- Location is great (Downtown Toronto)
- The team itself can be very collaborative as the turnover is high enough that most of the team is new

Cons- Base is low ($25,000 to $35,000 base) OR draw against commission
- Management is overaggressive and there is no HR department to report to
- Stealing candidates and clients and in-house fighting is the norm
- 30 day turnover (over 25 people left in the 26 months I was working there)
- USE LINKEDIN (don't take my word for it-- contact someone who has worked there-- out of the 50 people listed on LinkedIn in Toronto maybe half are still employed and most move onto bigger firms such as Hays or Manpower.

Advice to Senior ManagementEventually the decent talent you have will leave you and you'll be stuck. NexStaff has been around since 1999 (same year as you) and they have 100+ recruiters. You have less than 10. There's a reason after a decade of being in business you still work out of a single floor of a building.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
