Disappointing if you Recruit other than General Labor, Admin, or Light Industrial

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

ProsLocation of the office is pretty good
Good place for entry-level or new Recruiters to learn the business
Lots of opportunities to fill low-margin positions ($2-$4/hr gross profit)
If you like the "old school" Recruiter office environment, it's perfect

ConsHigh volume, low margin business model.
Seem to be over satisfied with sub-vendor buisness rather than developing business with decision makers (engineering)
Too many Salespeople are too timid considering the competitive technical marketplace
Your comissions earned on Contract placements go back to the "house" after one year...you are "cut off" even if your people are still working on Contract

Advice to Senior ManagementNone. I have my opinions (above) but it's not my place to tell Managment how to run their business.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible customer service- the employee being the customer

    Professional (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Talascend as a contractor for more than 3 years


    Pros: They do get the payroll out on time, found one employee in general in… Cons: They court you very well until you sign the papers, then you never hear from them again. Local rep is non existent, as long as… Advice to Senior Management: Update the company benefit plan to better suit the type/level of employees you are trying to recruit. When you have employees away from the MI… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
