    I worked at Certus Recruitment Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * Formed friendships with other former colleagues for life.
    * Learnt a lot about how to run on very little sleep.
    * Daniel.
    * Excellent praise system with the Friday round-up.
    * Lunch club is a hoot.

    Cons

    * Racist
    * Sexist
    * Multiple accounts of sexual abuse being reported and completely left because sales numbers were good.
    * Being told not to call candidates because their name 'didn't sound English'
    * Being forced to tell candidates they didn't get the job despite being qualified because they are wearing a hijab.
    * The illegal underpayment of apprentices who would finally be given a salary after working too many hours only to be again underpaid.
    * Clear sexism in the office towards the female members of staff.
    * Terrible treatment of employees after they leave - or when they are looking to leave.
    * Ridiculous payment system for the recruitment, it went from a simple, mutually beneficial system of the commission to a split, completely bias one.
    * You don't want a promotion, because it comes with way more work, way more pressure, considerably less commission and a ridiculously high turn over.

    This job is perfect for you, and you will be considered an excellent candidate if you are a privately educated male who is white, drinks beer, doesn't have a social life outside of work except maybe football and just loves racism and phone smashing.
    Otherwise, maybe jog on.

    Advice to Management

    Have a consistent management system.
    Maybe just give the people what they want and chuck a microwave in.
    Maybe consider letting people have lunch longer than 15 mins because you can barely get down the stairs to Pret for some hot food and back in time and you can't warm anything in the office. (No microwave)
    And maybe fire that guy who keeps touching up girls?
