    I have been working at Trak Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I am in the Records & Library brand of TRAK. The biggest pro is that there is a lot of opportunities in terms of learning and development, and there is always someone who is happy to answer questions or explain something to you.

    The team is super supportive, and I was very surprised to see the level of sharing that occurs. While recruiters are certainly territorial about their candidates, management recently put rules into place about candidate ownership, and that has helped a lot. I have had a million questions about procedures and stuff, and I've never once had a BD or upper management not take the time to help me. The team have become my friends, and my boss is someone I greatly respect and admire, and we've become friends outside of the context of work. Honestly, I've been in sales for a really long time before being a Recruiter, and I was surprised at the lack of a cutthroat atmosphere. Management really encourages us to share and get along, and does commissions and splits in a way that discourages being competitive and cutthroat with each other.

    I love that upper management doesn't micromanage! I have a level of autonomy that all of my friends are jealous of. I have the freedom to do my job as I think best and as long as I am hitting my goals and doing what needs to get done, I know that that will continue.

    One of the things I am happiest with is that I am able to change and grow my job responsibilities easily. I take the initiative and do what needs to get done, and I can see it making a difference in my branch. The fact is, we're a small company and a small-ish team, so I am able to immediately see and feel my contribution to the company as a whole every time I get new job orders or make a placement!

    We have these occasional internal competitions and the prizes are always pretty great!

    The amount of vacation days we get is great! And upper management is super flexible about us taking time off when we need it, or working out of one of our other office locations.

    The commission is good.

    Cons

    While the initial training is not the most robust, I've already seen things put in place to improve it in my time here and it continues to get better.

    There is pretty consistent recruiter turnover. In my experience, this is very common for recruiting agencies, especially since we hire a lot of recruiters right out of college, but it still bums me out for people to leave after we become friends!

    They followed through and found me something, but it took a while.

    I have been working at Trak Companies as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Trak staff are very friendly and professional. They say they treat every placement as if it were a real job, and that's true. Their interview process is very thorough. They found me a three-week position that paid well and was challenging. The company I was placed with also thought highly of Trak and uses them all the time. And someone from their permanent division recently contact me with a lead for a permanent position.

    Cons

    They can be bureaucratic to the point where sometimes I received multiple copies of things and sometimes I didn't receive something, like my log-in for their timesheet application.
