I worked at Jobspring Partners full-time (More than 5 years)
This job is not easy. That doesn't make it a bad organization/position/position. It means anything worth doing isn't easy.
- paid training. You are paid to learn an industry that is BOOMING worldwide. Google it.
- performances based culture. If you're looking for a participation trophy this isn't the place for you. If you're competitive, self-aware and know how to hustle you will reap the benefits.
- relationships: I have made friendships here that will last a life time and continue to add value to my personal and professional life. Even on the candidate and client side where I will have life long friendships.
- collegial atmosphere. Work hard play hard ladies and gentlemen
- if you care and work hard you will be showered with the mentorship you will hear about in the interview.
- mobility I was fortunate enough to live and work in multiple cities because of this organization. Life changing.
- long hours. Not a 9-5 job. I only put this here because if you view it as a con don't come work here
- it's hard and can be frustrating but again anything worth doing...
- the organization can be a little ridged
- low entry level salary
Advice to Management
It may be time to reach out and gain perspective from other organizations you compete with: culture, scalability, retention of top talent, compensation. Those are the areas that outside perspective and having moved on to another firm I can say need a bit of work. Entry level salaries are too low and draws for commissionable seats are out-dated. Keep building both business lines, really was a pleasure working here.
The process took a week. I interviewed at Jobspring Partners (Orange, CA).
I interviewed end of May. One phone interview. Then an in person interview with two account managers separately. Then a third with a presentation to the account managers. They're really looking to see how you communicate and engage. Since it's sales they're obviously looking for someone who's energetic and can match their culture.
I denied the offer because I didn't like the pay structure. You get small raises for a certain amount of deals closed...so pretty much no commission until after a year or so. And it's starting out at 38k. Most recruiting agencies have commission.
Also, it seems like management gets most of your commission too...like a pyramid scheme.
The company and culture seems great, but the pay structure didn't match my requirements.
