    I worked at Hydrogen Group plc full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hydrogen Group offers a challenging environment providing the structure to build your own book of business and brand to become a successful recruiter. I have seen consultants take home 100K worth of commission in no time – work hard and you will definitely reap the benefits! The company offers fun incentives to top performers, such as all expense paid trips to Ibiza and Tokyo to name a few.

    There are a lot of driven, hard working people with a great sense of humour working here!

    Cons

    Some processes aren’t clearly defined as of yet or can take time to set up – getting agreements out or changes in contracts all need to go through the head office which can take a day or two with the time difference. People are generally helpful when asked though and with the various channels of communication the company offers, it is easy to just pick up the phone or schedule in a VC to discuss things with counterparts in offices across the globe. Employees are also able to log on remotely making it easy to get work done fast despite the time difference.

    Turnover can be fairly high – the majority of people who quit so quickly do so because they do not understand the work involved to succeed in this business. If all you want is an average salary with easy to meet targets and an environment where there is no room for growth and development, I would recommend an easy non sales 8-5 job.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hydrogen Group plc.

    Interview

    Hydrogen Group was extremely communicative and supportive in the beginning. They invested quite a bit of time getting to know you and trying find that perfect role for you. I had multiple conversations and email exchanges with my Hydrogen contact which ultimately resulted in a face to face interview at a company. After that face to face.....crickets. No feedback. Not even negative feedback, which would have been fine too. If Hydrogen can't make a commission off you, they have no use for you. My impression of Hydrogen has significantly diminished. I have accepted a position at another company; where I am responsible for hiring. Not a wise move Hydrogen.
