Review Highlights

Pros
  • The weeks are long as we work 8:30-6, however the recruitment industry has the reputation work hard play hard so the work life balance is good (in 7 reviews)

  • Reasonable salary & good work/life balance (in 6 reviews)


Cons
  • Long hours and the expectation that you won't take a lunch break making the day even longer (in 21 reviews)

  • The commission structure is awful and so is the work-life balance (in 6 reviews)

    I have been working at Hays plc full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people, the investment in your career by the business, management and training team and the rewards for your hard work such as uncapped commission, incentives, benefits package

    Cons

    It is very hard work, lots of challenges around the role of recruitment, but if you have a strong work ethic and are determined that actually makes it even more satisfying when you have successes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, the investment in time and training you make in your teams and the people you are bringing in is great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having had recnet visits to our office from the CEO, FD, MD and other Senior Board members I can honestly say that the leadership is consitent and clear in the ambitious goals for the organisation.
