    Pros

    Good team environment. I felt supported as a sales person, given opportunity & flexibility to grow, ongoing training provided, excellent support from recruitment team. My reqs were always covered! Good benefits and commission plan.

    Cons

    As with any sales job it can be tough the first few months to gain traction. Although challenging, working the system and keeping up with KPI's pays off. Always felt like the team was behind me.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow your offices by adding motivated sales and recruiter staff

    Pros

    People, people, people - the company culture and people were the reason I stayed so long. Great place to start out in staffing if you are a new grad

    Cons

    Unrealistic metrics, throwing candidates at the wall and hoping they stick, commission plan changed too much - compensation rewarded to upper management - recruiters treated unequally in relation to sales

    No real clients in Chicago, yet that's where the headquarters are located.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training new employees and getting to know the people that work for you.

  10. Great company for internal employees and associates on contract

    I have been working at Glotel full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I started with Glotel straight out of college as a Recruiter and have been afforded many opportunities to hold different positions throughout the company which have included Recruitment, Account Management, Employee Relations, HR Management, and Contract Administration.

    I've watched our company change over the past nearly 9 years and I've seen many of positive changes. The one that has been closest to my heart is the Associate Care and Employee Relations programs. During the economic and employment downturn Glotel looked to creative options for offering resources and benefits to our employees which led to the creation of the Associate Care Program. From the top down, it is evident that there is a true caring for it's internal employees and associates on contract and I'm honored to have been a part of that. I've also seen a major shift in our internal culture. Our current structure has allowed for our employees to come together and work as a team as well as work across teams. This change has been reinforced by our changes to hiring practices. We look beyond the skills and experience that individuals can bring to our company and look for people who will bring positive contributions to our culture.

    I'm very proud to work for Glotel and to have the opportunities I've had. This is a great place for anyone who is looking for a fun and supporting work environment. For Sales and Recruiters who want support from their team and upper management while also having the freedom and accountability to manage their own business. And for HQ employees who are looking for a place to start or grow in their career.

    Cons

    As a staffing and project services firm Glotel has both internal employees and associates on contract working at clients sites across the nation. There is an industry stigma that staffing firms only offer paychecks to their associates and are otherwise not involved. Through our Recruitment and Sales contact and the Associate Care program, Glotel has been able to provide a level of service and connection with our associates to show them that they are Glotel employees as much as they might feel like our client's employees. While Glotel creates it's own culture with our associates, it's important for those looking at contract work to also review the client and office culture for the position they are applying for, so they are informed about the type of environment they will be working in each day. Glotel Recruiters will be able to provide this information to ensure that it will be the best fit.

    Pros

    Good experience with my recruiter and other staff from day one. Recruiter regularly informed me of the status of my application, assigned to a great company in a challenging position, support team was pleasant and responded to questions quickly. I would recommend Glotel for contract work.

    Cons

    My assignment ended after 12 months, which is the nature of contract work. I look forward to working with Glotel again.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up
