    I have been working at PageGroup full-time

    Pros

    Extremely supportive managers, consistent and specific feedback on how you can grow and develop in your skills, and a wonderful and supportive company culture. The office has grown so rapidly in the last year that it is impressive they have been able to keep the culture and mission clear. It isn't an easy job, but everyone genuinely supports and celebrates each other when they succeed. You have extensive training that includes classroom, on the desk, role plays, and games and lasts for the first 10 weeks or so. If you are competitive and want to get of your job what you put into it, this is an incredible environment to be a part of.

    Cons

    Nothing that can't be said for any staffing company. Recruiting isn't easy, but it's extremely rewarding and lucrative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing clear and specific advice that will help employees to grow in their careers!

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PageGroup (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone screen, than 2 1/2 hour interview with several different managers, finally an interview with the director. First of all, during the interview I did not get a vibe of great culture in this office. Managers were literally making smart comments about other managers during the interview. how rude. Also, it seems like this is a very miserable place to work, I mean there isn't even a lunch break? you have to eat at your desk? On top of that there is absolutely NO work life balance. 7:30am - 7:30pm is what they told me I would be expected to do. I have no problem with the work hard play hard mentality BUT if you're expecting someone to be there for 12 hours a day at least offer a proper lunch break. Honestly stay away from this recruitment company, there are many other recruitment company's out there who respect their employees. Also you'll end up sharing your commission with people who probably won't even bill. Respect your employees! Maybe if you start to offer your employees a proper lunch break and not force/look down upon on employees who don't want to work 12 hours every day of their life, your retention would be much better. Yes this business is not for everyone, but respect should be given.
