    Pros

    It is a great company with good client base and potential for high income and rewarding career.

    Cons

    Not for someone that is not willing to work hard and reap the rewards that come with that. Lots of phone work.

    Pros

    Richard, Wayne and Roberts truly offers you the opportunity to have your own business while providing you all the administrative support you need

    Cons

    Executive management is there to give you counsel, let's you make your own decision, recognizes your success and never ever says "I told you so".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be open to doing things different now that it is an ESOP

    I have been working at Richard, Wayne & Roberts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance, flexibility, great for working parents, incredible training, great tenure, one of the best commission structures for a recruiting firm (I had an offer with two others before coming here.) I LOVE my group, they are wonderful people and ethical to the core, no question in my mind. I've made more than double the annual salary that I made in my previous career and it keeps getting better. Company trips and extra incentives are available all year long, year-end performance bonuses. I was fully supported during maternity leave, and the money you can make is limitless. I look forward to sitting down at my desk every morning and catching up with my co-workers. That's more than most people can say about their job.

    Cons

    In every company, there will be people who aren't doing things the way they should be. With over 70 recruiters in a recruiting firm, there will be situations that arise that aren't always easy to resolve. We have Upper Managment to go to that are very fair individuals. Also, the first year can be difficult for some people, you have to get your desk going, prove yourself, and build your candidates and client contacts, the commission structure also goes up. We have the resources to do this, from systems, to daily, weekly and bi-weekly training, as well as management to go to for guidance. It's much more than making random calls though, we make matches with backgrounds and culture fits and conversations with c-level executives. We have to understand our clients and candidates by building relationships. If you don't like people, this probably isn't the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the training strong and the open door policy always.

    Telemarketers & Resume Pushers - No Ethical Boundaries

    I worked at Richard, Wayne & Roberts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work environment and you can create your own hours once you prove yourself. Can make a lot of money with little to no talent.

    Cons

    All the "recruiters" do is telemarket jobs and hope they get someone good. It's a free for all with no direction. Partners will submit anything under the sun - favorite line: "When in doubt send it out."
    Completely unethical and they consistently lie to clients.
    Half the employees are extreme partiers and the other half hold bible studies every morning and openly send out Jesus emails
    Tons of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to become more professional and take your job seriously. Stop pushing resumes to clients when they are unqualified and making candidates up.

    Pros

    RWR is one of the top recruiting firms. They provide an excellent opportunity with support, training and a teamwork environment.

    Pros

    Good training for inexperienced recruiters - although the ethics there really negate everything you'll learn

    Cons

    They are very two faced - tell you one thing and do another... Unethical people, terrible work environment/culture and they don't invest anything into their employees.

    I worked at Richard, Wayne & Roberts full-time

    Pros

    The training here is top-notch. It is a great place for an inexperienced recruiter to receive mentoring, training and experience.

    Cons

    The two main managers almost always are openly in conflict with one another. They don't even try to hide their animosity toward one another. The reinforcement either tends to be too positive (a deal goes through and you are the greatest things since sliced bread) or too negative (a deal doesn't go through and it was all your fault).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Temper yourselves: to each other and to your recruiters.
