    Pros

    The recruiters try to listen to jobs I’m interested in being assigned to. I don’t have much else to say.

    I have worked for them for about a year and don’t have any cons to report at this time. Thanks.

    Supportive management, great collaboration amongst staff, constantly training & developing the employees, innovative, gives employees the tools to succeed.

    Any job is tough at 1st, and staffing is no different... just takes hard work & it will pay off.

    Pros

    Very emotionally rewarding work, assisting hiring managers to recruiting and hire on talented people.

    Cons

    Contingent based commission, if you can't find the candidate the hiring manager client wants to bring on then you don't earn commission. That may not be for everyone, but will motivate many others.

    Advice to Management

    The companies PTO offering is very generous, encourage staff to take advantage of it more.

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

    Pros

    A great start up, benefits a decent

    Cons

    The position lies about not needing experience. Don't waste your time if you don't have any. Company doesn't care about the people that they recruit. They hardly ever call anyone back.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to job description that the company writes, Return phones calls understand the people you recruiter more than your paycheck. Care about those people that apply for jobs.

    I have been working at Ajilon full-time

    Pros

    I do not see any PROS in working/partnering with AJILON for career search.

    Cons

    A number of Recruiters fail to fulfill their interview/calls with candidates. They set up a call but never call or follow through. When a candidate calls them or emails them to follow up and they never respond. The level of unprofessionalism and experience with these recruiters is unacceptable. NOT A GOOD PARTNER for job search or recruitment.

    Advice to Management

    If this is the training that you provide your recruiters, then candidates and or clients need to beware of the level of professionalism your employees exhibit. Some of the basics that any employee that provides a service should have and exhibit when dealing with clients and candidates.

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

    Pros

    There aren't any pros here -- only lame wannabes

    Cons

    There's so much in-fighting between each other, you can hardly get away from it. They literally will talk to anyone that shows a glimmer of life in them about a 'career' at Ajilon -- and the career is set for high turnover, petty, contrite people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop turning a blind eye.

    Pros

    I was placed at a high profile government contracting firm immediately upon hiring.

    Cons

    They will pull a "bait and switch" with hourly rate negotiations. They take full advantage of the fact that these conversations are not in writing. Hold firm on your decided rate, and get it in writing.

    Advice to Management

    Try to not pull these bait and switch moves which are synonymous with staffing agencies.
