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

    Pros

    The people I worked with for the most part were the best part of the position. It was also a good place to start off in a Human Resources career. The money you could make as a recruiter was great but you worked very hard for every last penny.

    Cons

    Management has very unrealistic expectations for what people can accomplish. The management I interacted with also managed on a fear based system and were frequently threatening to let people go if they couldn't meet the impossible expectation. Just overall not a very positive environment.

    Advice to Management

    I get that you need to make money but with turnover being as high as it is maybe you need to start reassessing how you run your business.

    I worked at Advantage Resourcing full-time

    Pros

    Hours were flexible and it's pretty laid back as long as you do your job.

    Cons

    Unless you're at the corporate office, you feel like you're on an island. They like to make changes and move people around, but it doesn't seem like much thought is put into it. There are people in positions they probably shouldn't be in.....

    I worked at Advantage Resourcing full-time

    Pros

    Decent PTO policy and benefits are OK but on the expensive side

    Cons

    Not all recruiters have access to the same recruiting tools and compete internally among each other. It's an unfair when being held to the same metrics. Upper management is rarely supportive or has a true understanding of what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention and stop pretending.
