    START AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Greenville, SC

    ProsYou may get off early on Fridays. They have casual Fridays. Management encourages you to go and drink with them after work. If you don't then you are looked down upon.

    Conshigh turnover, no training, management is very unprofessional, caddy, NOT a team work environment. You will be required to make at least 100 phone calls per day and have at least 2.5 to 4 hours of phone time. Be careful, you will be in an office enviroment where every one is on top of one another and you can hear EVERY telephone conversation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to treat people!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall a very good company to work for

    (Current Employee)

    ProsRelaxed corporate culture. Your earnings are only limited by your tenacity and diligence. Not a micromanaged enviroment UNLESS you are trying to find out information from corporate. If you are comfortable only making $50k, you can do that in your sleep and you should look elsewhere. If you want to make $150k+, that is entirely possible.

    ConsVery high turn over of employees. No real structure to training. It's truely a numbers game and a lot of the training is "on the go" and situational analysis relying on commissioned tenured recruiters to "train and mentor" new recruiters without compensation.

    The world of recruiting has evolved over the last 43 years since the company was founded. Senior Level Management and outside industry "experts/consultants/board members" who haven't worked a desk in decades do not always understand the changing dynamics of today's industry/market. Ideas are solicited but rarely implemented.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have lost a lot of talented tenured individuals over the past few years. If you truely want to grow the company then empower the "active desk" producers to make their own hiring decisions if you truely want teams built around them. The tenured recruiters will always do what they have to do to generate their billings and income but to take their commissioned time to break in or train a new recruiter costs them money in time and effort. If thats to be expected to develop teams, then incentivize them by not charging a draw. True recruiting is a 7/24 career. Implement options of flex schedules. 3X12s, 4X10 for those that produce. An income generating recruiter doesn't always have to be in the "office" to produce. They will do what is needed to generate their revenue.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
