Horrible company that takes advantage of it's 'independent contractors' that do all the work.

Pros

This was a horrible experience.

Cons

Unfortunately their pay and the contract they make you sign as an 'independent contractor' is extremely unfair and takes advantage of their employees. They pay their employees a small fraction of what they charge the client.

Advice to Management

The company needs to reconsider compensation and treatment of employees.

    Pros

    It is great to be able to work from home and the hours are flexible, which makes work life balance great. Everyone is friendly, supportive, and you really feel like you are making a difference. They are open to your suggestions and appreciate the feedback.

    Cons

    The hours for part time recruiters are inconsistent which makes it difficult to predict what you will make from month to month. You are not in control of how many hours you get from week to week. It is hard to not be able to count on income.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have an option for part time employees to work a pre-determined number of hours per month. Some employees don't need benefits and/or aren't able to work full time, but need a job that is consistent in the amount they will make from month to month. Give two part time employees the opportunity to split the time that a full time employee would work.

  2. This company was not a bad one to work for, but there is minimal support and quite a bit of disorganization.

    Pros

    Tons of independence, easy work, and reasonable hourly pay if you can work out your schedule

    Cons

    The company goes through a lot of growing pains and can be disorganized, which often falls onto its employees. The schedule is also not as flexible as one might think, with an expected availability that is above and beyond 'full time'.

    Advice to Management

    Support your recruiters, and consider the hours you require versus the pay you provide.
