Questionable work ETHICS at best. An experience nonetheless.

Technical Recruiter (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

I worked at Zenex Partners as a contractor for more than a year

Pros- Exposure to HR in some way, shape or form
- Sales Experience
- Co-workers that make the work day manageable even with all the downsides.

Cons- Structure of the day-to-day operations is nonexistent/sporadic if that
- Employees are expected to work their 8 hours + overtime, but compensated only up to 40 hours
- Managers arrive 1-2 hours later than the start of a regular work day or hours of operation
- Outdated methods of recruitment and quality is NOT within the control of the Recruiter
- Sourcing should but is not done by Recruiters in-house, but externally outsourced
- Concerns addressed to management and CEO are addressed as unresolved or forgotten even after numerous attempts
- Pointless reports that does not allow merits in any way. More backlash and harm done compared to praise/ positive reinforcements
- Heavily stressed in a numbers game (i.e. outbound calls, inbound calls, placements, etc)
- Over the course of ONE year, daunting to see so many Recruiters leave/laid off
- Job insecurity crosses one's mind on a daily basis
- Gossip and rumors definitely roam in any and all companies. However, sometimes it trumps over the real truth
- Looking at most of the reviews, I'm a bit skeptical with the validity and not convinced they are written by different individuals "representing" the company
- Information about any given position is broad as broad can be, which leaves complications down the road to keep contacting/pre-qualify
- Nonexistent training program for new employees (thrown in shark infested waters)
- Disgruntled candidates are not removed as promised from managers/sourcers
- Potential of growth is simply not there, as promises of advancement is loosely followed through
- Salary + Commission is not competitive by any means
- Last and certainly not least, the organizational culture "claims" to be zen-like with internal and external staff, managers, clients, candidates, etc. However, its often the feeling of detachment with communication. The only justified business/personal relationship available is amongst your fellow co-workers (Technical Recruiters)

Advice to Senior Management- Structure with proper and thorough training and perhaps ongoing training to further the skills, abilities and knowledge with Recruiters, Sourcers, HR, and managers.
- Positive reinforcements either weekly/biweekly or monthly to attract meeting quotas and business goals
- Constructive meetings not simply pointing out the negatives, stresses and hardships but guidance to getting back on track by meeting career goals
- Instilling respect and upholding it with all staff and managers
- Accountability for not listening/following rumors and lies opposed to the source of truth (straight from the horses mouth and not filtered)
- Updating the method recruiting/sourcing by the means of attracting and maintaining candidates
- Creating more of a work/life balance for employees and acknowledgement of their efforts

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Zenex Partners as a contractor for more than a year


Pros: It's a great stepping stone, you have to learn a lot on your own so be prepared. they teach you the basics/bare minimum… Cons: There were a few perks when I had started, but most of them are gone now that moral has gone down the hole.
