    Sinking ship

    Former Employee - Executive Recruiter
    Former Employee - Executive Recruiter

    I worked at MRINetwork full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The initial training is top notch for the recruiting industry, and working for individual franchises can be a great thing. For the right person, this can be a huge money maker of a position.

    Cons

    Once you're through the training, there isn't much support from corporate that is worth being a franchise for. So many offices have closed in the last several years because of the economy - MRI isn't the recruiting leader it used to be. Some owners are stuck in the 90's with technology and recruiting tactics, focusing on the numbers game.

    I worked at MRINetwork full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was decent
    Didn't work late into the night

    Cons

    I had a terrible boss, constantly talking down to employees, mocking them to the point of them crying, and never having the respect to pay them on time. In my four months there I only was paid on time two or three times.
    Micromanagement
    I had to constantly hastle him to pay my outstanding commission ($2300) he did end up paying me a month after I resigned.
    Final paycheck was over two weeks late.
    Encouraged to blatantly lie
    40 hours a week quickly turned to a consistent 48 hour work week.
    Unreasonable quota expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MRI is widely considered the McDonald's of recruiting agencies if that's what your going for then great but if your looking to be a little bit classier step it up!

    I have been working at MRINetwork full-time

    Pros

    The training is world class, the working hours are employee friendly, and the earnings opportunities are strong if you are a go-getter.

    Cons

    You have to be willing to spend the majority of your day on the telephone talking with strangers in order to be successful in this business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trying to find the right kind of people to grow your business.

    None that I can think of.

    Terrible, boring meetings every single day, even though the Manager is in the same room and we talk through out the day.

    Let your AE and Recruiters work virtual.

    Current Contractor - Programmer in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at MRINetwork as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    could be worse... They at least MRI. as a primary contractor that outsources all their work to smaller mom and pop staffing shops, have decided we don't need to see all the india super genius propaganda on their website about their massive office in hyderbad, banglore, and delhi india like the other mom&pop indian staffing network companies... and they don't try to use psychology to try to make us quit applying to their jobs so that mom&pop india francise can find some asian guy to fill their one resume slot with instead of wasting it on white American.

    Cons

    Just another hidden front for the India Staffing Network...
