    I have been working at Hays full-time

    Pros

    Compensation - base isn't great but amazing commission structure

    Cons

    Benefits could be better. Standard 401k, medical, dental, vision, etc. No commuter benefits, no tuition reimbursement, no 'fun' or 'modern' benefits that are attractive.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hays in September 2015.

    Interview

    it was really easy process. its almost like they are begging to have people work for them. Then you start working there, you realise why they need people so badly. never seen such high turnover rate.
