  2.  

    Fiercely competitive environment within the office. Potentially very rewarding if and only if you are good at the job.

    I worked at Recruit Express as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    High monetary rewards when targets are reached. Merit is recognized as it is clear whether you are performing or not. Not pulled down by non-performing team mates.

    Cons

    Stressful if targets are not met; twice-weekly sales reporting. Inherently unfair environment when consultants 'inherit' good/bad clients from their predecessors. Some consultants are able to perform very well just because of their portfolio without doing much work.

    I worked at Recruit Express

    Pros

    You get to work with people from other divisions and broaden up your network. Able to earn a lot if you manage to get more candidates for the positions you have

    Cons

    Fast-paced and stressful environment as it is sales-based and when you do not hit the sales target set monthly. A lot of times, it is dependent on the quality of candidates which you have that determines whether you can meet your sales target

    Former Employee - Human Resource Coordinator in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at Recruit Express as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There will be a mentor assigned to you, who will guide you in your work. You will most probably be under a team, becuase in Recruit Express, they work in teams for the same division. When you first start, usually you will handle candidates (job-seekers) first, and when you get more experienced, you will start to handle corporate clients.

    Challenging job which requires alot of focus, good managment of human relations, and competitive spirit as this is like a sales-based job.

    Cons

    Very small working desk. Have to share a computer with some of the full-time employees over there.
    Stressful as there will be weekly meeting where you have to report your acheivement for the week, etc.
    Sometimes have to handle difficult people.

    I have been working at Recruit Express full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, people makes the culture open and fun, high energy and fast paced which translates to high results. The company is run very close knittedly, not much bad politics which allows one to focus on achieving sales and providing good service to clients. You can manage well enough to achieve work life balance (hardly any overtime done).

    Cons

    Local based company, lack of diversity in a global MNC setting. Processes veer towards being more manual than leveraging on systems usage.

    I worked at Recruit Express as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I particularly love the office culture. I am in a very friendly and efficient team. Colleagues from other teams are approachable. My mentors never fails to motivate me. She pointed out my weakness and allowed me to improve; on the job training is great. An eye-opener experience.

    Cons

    Sales-based therefore, might be rather stressful if you could not hit the target. I guess job fit is really very important here. I have seen people who can't seems to fit into the culture and stress just doubled up for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Did not stay that long to get insight onto this.
