    I have been working at Ajilon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a true sales job where you have to capitalize on the leads and points of contact the company gives to you. Has a great balance of making phone calls and sending emails to market the company's staffing services while also spending half the day meeting with managers/decision makers building business relationships.

    Base Pay + Commission structure will allow you make $50-65,000 in the first year working with the company. Your own book of business grows the longer you are with the company and it grows rapidly.

    8am - 5pm allows a great work life balance. Gas Mileage reimbursement. Gym membership reimbursement and relocating possibilities (after working 1 year with the company).

    Management is very understanding if your metrics aren't where they need to be and is willing to work with you to ensure your own success.

    Cons

    The sales cycle demands a lot of patience. There will be times where you can close a deal in a couple days or couple hours even. Most of the time, it will take up to a week or sometimes even a couple months to break into an account.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Ajilon full-time

    Pros

    The culture was great. I really did look forward to work each day and loved what I was doing.

    Cons

    The demands to make a certain number of calls each day got a little stressful. Call reports were sent out to everyone in the company multiple times per day so you could see how everyone was else was doing in comparison to yourself. Made it to be too competitive.

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance, great benefits from having a large parent company, fun culture. Good community involvement

    Cons

    Time management is everything. You have to constantly find a good balance of recruiting vs. marketing. Not a bad thing if you're organized.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being great!

    I have been working at Ajilon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are unlimited professional growth opportunities here if you put the time, and effort in. Colleagues are passionate about the work they do, and take a genuine interest in the well-being, and professional success and satisfaction of associates on Ajilon assignments. Deals don't close without teamwork which truly strengthens the culture here. There are people here with tenure over 10 and 30 years which is really unheard of in this industry. I think that speaks to the strength of the internal culture and leadership available at our fingertips. The VPs are approachable, and genuinely care about each employee's professional growth.

    Cons

    Retention is very strong here compared to other agencies; however, starting salaries could be higher to compete with other agencies in the market to help even more with retention and job satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Be cognizant of talent blooming internally to give more growth opportunities, and keep tabs on compensation of internal colleagues to stay competitive. This is an easy fix though.
