Featured Review

Former Employee - Account Manager

I worked at Hays full-time

Pros

Great opportunity to learn and become ingrained in an industry - Not just the staffing business, but the people business, and the industry that you recruit for (Life Sciences, IT, Accounting &... Finance, Construction & Property etc.). Hays does its best to align you with your strengths as well. There is a big push to have a separation of duties between true hunters and farmers on the sales side, and specific skillsets on the recruiting side. - Tons of PTO front loaded (4 weeks to start I believe) -Opportunity to see the fruits of your labor, via commission. -Flexible work schedule (remote/office) -Tons of opportunity to join committees with exposure to senior leadership -Office culture (although this varies office to office) -Branding and Name in the Staffing Industry -GREAT learning and development team/programs

Cons

- Salaries could be more competitive, especially with the new commission structure. - The new CEM role should be compensated on their KPIs (New contracts signed, # of placements at accounts brought... in etc.) - Becoming more of a red tape process as the business is starting to grow in the US - compared to even a few years ago. - 401k match seems non existent

Current Employee - Consultant

I have been working at PageGroup full-time

Pros

- Great opportunity for long term progression with uncapped bonuses - Thorough training course for all levels of experience that starts on day 1 - Good work environment with other team members... always open to help new starters

Cons

- It is a tough job but is very rewarding long term with the opportunities for quick promotions and uncapped quarterly bonuses
