Mission: To expand our presence in Europe and continue growing our company organically.
I have been working at NonStop Recruitment full-time (More than a year)
Great group of people. All the management care. The training team is great. The senior Sales Management are wonderful.
They generally performance manage out the toxic millennials that come into the business. Its good to see but I believe we could do better hiring.
There is over 200 like-minded, fun, brilliant and clever people who are part of the team. I feel privileged to be involved. I have been here for over 2 years and loved it. I don't think that enough of us actually come onto Glassdoor because it is a distraction.
I decided to write this now, because at the weekend one of the people who left decided to tell me that they wrote a bad review and how "funny" it was to have done that. This person was in the company for 4 months only and had been nothing but a problem for the Trainers and their Manager apparently. They were also on their final warning (they didn't mention this in their review.... )
Good Money - in the last 6 months I have averaged 143,00 czk per month (brutto). Some people have got way more than that.
Great Training and Learning.
Really nice offices in Prague. The London ones look amazing.
Power days and Parties.
A director let me try driving his Ferrari!
Some of the Junior people. Even since I joined a lot of the new people coming into the business are just toxic. You get an insight into the "millennials" from them! They complain about everything, nothing is ever good enough. Yet they are being paid to get training! Its crazy talk from them. Its draining.
Advice to Management
We need to hire people who are intelligent. Not just with a good education but actually have some intelligence about life (I don't know how to make sure that this happens by the way. I can imagine it is very hard to do). You can see from many of the reviews on this sight (which are mainly just the junior people) that they follow a similar theme:
"I have to actually do hard work" (A millennial/bad hire says "I cannot believe that sometimes you end up working after 6pm!) - I know that they tell people this in the assessment days. But I think that they just don't listen.
"They check out how you are doing with the training and whether there is any more help you need from the training team" (A millennial/bad hire says "OMG they actually check the work that you are doing. Its like Big Brother. I want to get away with doing bad quality work, or no work at all, and they check and can find that out!)
"The business knows how to do this, very very well" (A millennial/bad hire says: I know better. That is why I "left". I am amazing. NonStop/my manager/The owner/ the management are not amazing).
"The salary is good enough to live off whilst going through the training" (A millennial/bad hire says: You don't have a good standard of life with the money. They don't pay you what you are worth) - Finish the first part of the training, actually bring in some clients and then you earn great money. This is just the idiots who failed at the job complaining that they couldn't afford a 150sqm apartment next to the river whilst being paid to have training. People doing well here earn ridiculous money.
You can see from the fact that the majority of the reviews are people who worked in the business for "less that a year" that its just the new idiots coming into the company who seem to know better. They don't I can promise you, but they believe that they do. Its a real shame to see so many people working so hard to get people motivated and skilled at the job, with all the right intentions. And yet they still get criticised by a 23 year old who knows nothing about real life.
I don't actually have advice as to how to solve it. I even hired one of the new people myself, who was also toxic, but they seemed great on the telephone interview. I think it might be the way the world is unfortunately.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at NonStop Recruitment (London, England (UK)) in February 2018.
Applied online. Went through a initial 20min phone interview and a formal 1 hour phone interview with a recruiter from Prague. My recruiter was very concerned if I took this opportunity serious.
