    I worked at Hays full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The training program at Hays truly sets them apart. The amount of training provided to both Account Managers and Recruiting is in-depth and presented in an engaging manner. Once finished, any staff member is more than prepared to succeed in their role.
    Great environment, very supportive colleagues and leadership. There is a strong focus on mentorship and guidance for all new staff members.
    Like with all recruiting roles, the more time and effort that you put into honing your craft, the better your results will be, as Hays rewards hard work through a competitive commission structure and provides a clear path for advancement.

    Cons

    Some of the teams in New York are still growing and working to gain greater prominence in a competitive market.
    There are certainly opportunities for Recruiters and Account Managers both to do well though!

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job!

    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.
