    Pros

    Good training program - they will teach you the fundamentals of recruiting and the staffing business. Good compensation plan. Once you get your spread up it pays out nice. However to get to that level you are probably working the hours of two jobs anyways.

    Cons

    LONG HOURS -- I normally put 60+ hours per week. They will ask you to come in and work on the weekends and although it's not required you will feel guilty on not being a "team player" if you don't make yourself available 24/7. Production - Even if you are a top performer they will always want more and more... even if you are killing yourself to do it. They are dead set on metrics and micromanaging and will not consider any other way. Work life/balance - there isn't any. You will spend all your hours at the office. They "support" you but at the end of the day you are expected to drop everything for them no matter the hour. If you notice the majority of the employees don't have kids or are married... Benefits - no 401k matching. ESOP plan is a joke because you have to make it 3 years to be vested... look around hardly anyone makes it past 3 years AND it realistically will be a while before anyone would be open to buying IDR. High turnover- due to the long hours and only hiring entry recruiters there is constant turnover so the account managers are responsible for training up new employees while continuing to bring in new business Micromanagement- I understand training but the micromanagement was crazy! I understand if you are just learning but if you are proven top performer - you don't need micromanagement or someone breathing down your neck. Results speak for themselves - if you are making the company a lot of money they should trust your work ethic and integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees who are loyal. Productivity is always wanted but at the end of the day if your employees are getting burned out... there is no amount of money that will compensate.


  3. Sexual affairs, caustic environment... just do a quick google search & you do the math!

    Pros

    This isn't a pro but I don't know where to start with these maniacs...There is a lot of sexual "funny business" going on-- individuals show up together in ONE CAR for a 6am workouts together, leave together for hours in the middle of the day to "wash their cars", and then show up at the end of the day making demanding requests and tell you that you are coming in on the weekend.... it's really disgusting. They have an ESOP but it will be at least 10 years before they pay back the company and even when that happens no one will ever buy this company because their numbers are consistently bad year after year... Oh yeah and recruiters get paid hourly so they don't get sued for working 70+ hrs/week and then have you clock out so you don't exceed 45hrs/week but expect you to stay and work off the clock!!! And you will get promoted to Sr. Recruiter so that you can get a crappy salary and can then demand 80+hrs/week out of you... it's insane!

    Cons

    Read above... This is a fake company, they never hit their goals, and always grind it out because they have no real lives. The Atlanta office only focuses on how they look verses actually doing good work. Females-- don't wear skirts or dresses because you will get assaulted. They have even gone as far as lying about numbers on monthly operations reviews to inflate numbers!

    Advice to Management

    Close shop ASAP and stop sleeping with the help!

    Pros

    As a female I am very well respected by both genders in the office. I am pushed to grow professionally, mentally, and personally. This company truly cares about its employees and will go above and beyond to make sure that you are enjoying your job. The days go by quickly because it is a fast-paced environment. Just in the first two weeks of working at IDR, I had the chance to work alongside the CEO and he is very personable and wanted to help me learn. He is a great mentor.

    Cons

    The hours are long, but we are a team and in it together. You have to put in the hours to get the outcome you desire!

    Pros

    I was introduced to IDR through one of my colleagues. Having been in IT field for over a decade now, i quickly identified how thorough and dedicated IDR is. They took time to explain the benefits and answer all the questions i had before joining IDR, their approach towards employee satisfaction is unique and excellent. Perfect blend of I - Integrity D - Dedication R - Relationship IDR has taken the time and effort to establish a well integrated system that helps all its employees to view and update their personal and payroll information online. Transparency in doing business is only a virtue possessed by true business leaders! I am looking forward for a sweet relationship , rewarding and satisfactory career with IDR. Samantha Green - Engagement Manager, is one of the best person by far with great business and interpersonal ethics! I am very glad to work with her! always approachable and knowledgeable enough to answer any question.

    Cons

    So far i have no comments on this and i hope that i won't in future!

    Advice to Management

    Please note that this is not an advice but an appreciation! Samantha Green is one of your best employees and i am very glad to have her as a colleague! She has always been available and ready to answer any questions i had in the most accurate and appropriate way!

    Pros

    I was a consultant, but felt supported. They called me and emailed me, bringing me into the fold. I could have been as involved as I wanted. I felt like I had a work family. The benefits were great ( Insurance and if I had not gone full time , thanks to them, I would have gotten the retirement benefits). Additionally, they supported me when I was offered a fulltime role with the client that was contracted to through them.

    Cons

    No cons other than not having vacations, which is standard for what I do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Ashley, Travis and Mae Mae ( sp?) and the gang happy. They are great.

    Pros

    During my interview process, it was the gritty and passionate team of people who share the same ambitious goals as mine that led me to join the IDR team. During my first year at IDR I’ve definitely been faced with some challenges, but those challenges have come with an extremely rewarding outcome (and a six-figure income). The personal and professional growth that’s come from all of my hard work has made it more than worth it. There is so much I love about this company that keeps me coming back every day – the motivation we receive to challenge ourselves, the supportive and inspirational team that surrounds me, and the overwhelming potential for career growth that is ahead of me. Unlike some of IDR’s competitors, we allow you to earn commission from day one. We also offer a competitive base, uncapped commission, performance bonuses and an all-expense paid trip to Mexico through our Annual Sales and Recruiting contest. Our compensation is rewarded based on performance, and we firmly believe in hard work. There are so many factors solidifying the fact that I made the right decision to join IDR and become part of the team that catapults our company to the next level. I love everything the company stands for and strives for, but mostly, I love the person that I’m becoming along the way.

    Cons

    - The more you work, the more opportunity you have to make a lot of money. That comes with working long hours and making sacrifices in your personal life. - The rewards seen in any sales/recruiting role, IDR being no exception, definitely come in the form of delayed gratification. You have to accept the learning curve, continue working hard every day, and remain patient knowing that big paychecks are just around the corner. Management will tell you this upfront, but it takes 6-8 months before you begin making a significant income.

    Pros

    - The company paid for weekly team bootcamp

    Cons

    - Extremely long hours, required hours on the weekends and at night - Recruiters are constantly being held to daily numbers. If you don't hit your daily/weekly/monthly goals you are punished - Taking a lunch break is frowned upon; leaving at any point during the workday will result in numerous questions regarding your whereabouts - Cutthroat culture among recruiters - Paid hourly as an entry level recruiter - No real growth opportunities - still held to numbers everyday and micromanaged, even at the senior recruiter level
