    I have been working at Jobserve USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hands down the BEST group of people to work for and with! Fun, and friendly working environment with a great location in Atlanta....makes you want to come to work every day! Lots of room to grow! If you work hard, you will be rewarded!

    Cons

    With the corporate offices located in the U.K. it can make things a little tricky sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! The recent (and much needed) changes in our office have improved the work environment tremendously!

    Pros

    Good people to work with and very little after hours work required. You can work without someone looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    They moved all of their support out if Atlanta and back to the UK where they are headquartered. Very few US jobs

    Pros

    I have had other sales positions in the past and compensation has varied. In other sales organizations management looks to bring in new sales people at a very low base salary, see what new business they can develop and turn them over. Jobserve starts you our with a very competatve base salary with activity based bonuses rather than commission based on sales that are closed. This tends to set employees up for success rather than failure. It's more than fair.

    Cons

    I haven't found any yet.

    Advice to Management

    Throw me a bone every once in a while.

    Pros

    Small office with less corporate feel. Good use of technology and sales tools. Positive attitude in the office. Ability to grow and develop a customer base that allows for good commissions.

    Cons

    The brand is not nationally recognized and can make cold calling tough. Requires you to be self motivated and have a thick skin. Not a lot of extra perks.

    Advice to Management

    Better benefits.

    Pros

    Company and Senior Management have stuck to and delivered on changes and promises made. Every sales tool imaginable is at my disposal and I have been given every opportunity to be successful here. The product(s) are truly unique and I rarely feel "outdone" by our competitors which is a big plus in this industry where so many job resources exist. The work environment is fairly casual and I am given the opportunity to think freely and for the most part run my book of business as I see fit. I genuinely feel anyone with the right mind-set and attitude can flourish here!!

    Cons

    No latte' machine in the breakroom.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving things in the right direction......


  7. Negative environment from the answers you get on the phone.....not horrible from mgmt.

    Pros

    It could be the opportunity you look for if you can get past the idea of them saying you need to build your book of business, but in reality you will most likely start from scratch everyday. Very fair management people, not a group that is on you all the time.... as long as you do what you need to do....min 60 conversations a day.

    Cons

    Once you sell your deal if it is a trial, getting them to convert to a long term contract is not likely based on product results. No conversions in a year of selling. Everything comes down to product results and not a single conversion for me....at the end of the day if mgmt, does not get in the game and support the reps sales efforts and get better results, they will continue to have poor sales results, poor sales conversions, and continued sales turnover.

    There is a large chasm between their vision and reality which made my experience very disappointing.

    Pros

    The user platform for their services have good functionalities that give them a means to differentiate themselves from the competition. This is coupled with extremely low prices that compensate for a mediocre job board performance. Due to the involvement of third party staffing firms, Jobserve has exceptional sales personnel who will either compel change for the better or move on within 6 to 8 months.

    Cons

    Jobserve has poor business operations, Sr. leadership, online traffic and resume inventory. Their business operations are an obstacle instead of a tool for customer satisfaction and positive sales performance. It can be traced back to the integration of systems and processes in acquiring two stronger US online entities 4 to 5 years ago. After the dust settled, it was apparent that they were only purchased for their inventory. They discarded the people, processes and practices that allowed the two acquired businesses to excel. One of which had a monthly revenue stream of over $300k which is now $60k at its height under Jobserve direction. The recession can only account for so much of the 80% decline, which is a common theme, but not all. The Sr. leadership are very likable people outside of business but this endeavor has become more than they can handle. Their major downfall is the unwillingness to seek or act on any information from customers and employees that will give them a competitive advantage. An advantage that can either be created or replicated with the ability to weather storms of recession and a commoditized market. Over 80% of any business operations change comes from the parent company which usually is implemented with no prior warning including compensation plans. This has cultivated an environment of mistrust of leadership from employees and clients. This has lead to the common theme of 80%...over 80% of clients are cancelling or downsizing their services and over 80% of employees are actively seeking other employment. Again, this is reinforced by their current revenue numbers and turnover percentage. Unfortunately, the 80% theme does not apply to the traffic on the site and resume inventory because it is a much larger discrepancy. They communicate that they are a general employment board competing with Monster and CareerBuilder but their strengths are within the IT niche. Comparing themselves with larger job boards at this time is not fair to them, their sales people, clients, and prospects. Some may argue that it is even disingenuous. The better comparison would be DICE which it has over 580% more traffic (compete.com), over 600% more jobs posted (posted on site) and over 1000% more resumes in their database. They have a long way to go in order capture a fraction of their vision (pyramid diagram) but as someone told me…”they would be surprised if they exists in 5 years within the US!”

    Pros

    It is a job, and the company is hiring during a bad downturn in the economy.

    Cons

    Where to begin............. The overall ambiance of the office and the culture of the company is insulting to its staff. This is a sweatshop of a sales office in a formal British environment. This is a very "Un-Fun" place to be, (quoted by members of the team.) The product itself is defective, previous customers are very unhappy with the new site, and sales people are expected to sell the service at a 350% rate increase from previous agreements. Turnover is as high at this office over the past twelve months as anywhere in Atlanta - great talent comes in, sees what is to be expected and what the day-to-day operations will be, and then very quickly leave.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the site, lower the rates, allow for flexible sales schedules and more open interaction among the sales staff, GET OFF THE FLOOR AND GET YOUR OWN OFFICE, quit monitoring calls and emails, and listen to the vibe of the office rather than have your own way of doing things.

    Pros

    It was a job, and the product does work every now and then !

    Cons

    This is the "Good ole Boy environment" at it's best ! The problem is they are amateurs at their brand of politics as well. If you need a pay check for a sec until you can find something better, then maybe. But you my not last because of the GOB system in place.

    Advice to Management

    Replace them, and sell out to a professional organization.

    Pros

    JobServe has undergone many recent changes that have affected the daily operations of the business as well as the company's overall market strategy. The company has put in place new senior management and information is regularly shared about the direction of the company. There have been recent investments into leads, more sophisticated sales collateral, improved CRM integration, and an upgraded website. The company is also leveraging new joint ventures and partnerships with local TV media. There is flexible scheduling, a casual work environment, and a buzz around the sales floor that was not previously part of the culture. Things have definitely moved in the right direction.

    Cons

    Growing company where processes are still being defined.

    Advice to Management

    Continue approaching the US market as a niche solution that can provide a unique solution for companies.
