    Pros

    Opportunity to make excellent money if recruiting in the right market. However, the "right" market makes a big difference.

    Working from a Draw every month.

    I worked at Bradsby Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    The $$ can be descent if you are there at least a year. However, just when you get into a momentum of starting to make $ and decide you can't take anymore, they will keep ALL of your commissions due.

    Cons

    Very unethical company asking you to do things to clients and candidates you don't feel comfortable with. 3 days off first year but good luck trying to get any time off. No room for growth. Sit at your desk and make 80-120 calls per day. No flex hours.

    "The Most Unethical Staffing Company"

    I worked at Bradsby Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incentive trips I guess? An apparent "Christmas Break"

    Cons

    Unethical business practices, commission structure, parking, environment, training, CRM, computers, managers

    Advice to Management

    Hard to provide advice when clearly they're getting business. However, the draw against commission structure is a joke. It will take months before a placement actually happens and by that point you're so deep into the draw you won't see a dime of it. Parking is very expensive and they only pay for about half of it. Incredibly unethical behavior as far as business development goes. They are also very sue happy so I'm being careful about my words. You are competing against your manager for placements and it's likely that your manager has been doing this for a much longer time making it nearly impossible to get ahead. LinkedIn is also required but they only reimburse you for about half of the cost of the one that is necessary to have any shot at success.
    I was a very successful recruiter before I went to Bradsby and have been successful since leaving. I guess my advice to Management would be to not encourage the unethical behavior that is rampant there- and "unethical" doesn't even begin to encompass what I saw happen but again I have to be careful about my words. And get rid of the draw against commission. This is one of the strongest job markets out there and this is an archaic, company-centric way of paying employees. The way it works out is that if you don't make a good amount of placements quickly, you're essentially paying to work there via the draw, your parking and your linked in. Oh and lastly, they don't even provide a headset!! Do not fall for all the "Best Staffing Firm in Denver" awards they have like I did. There are a ton of better staffing firms to work for where you have a real chance at success and the company actually pays and rewards you for that success!
    Oh and lastly, they have a VERY restrictive non-compete and they are aggressive about enforcing it. Makes it very difficult when they work in so many industries if you decide to leave and work somewhere else. Luckily I was able to find another job outside of their scope but they will come after you, unlike most companies that won't go out of their way to restrict your ability to work; Bradsby will.

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

    Pros

    Ability to control your own destiny and work to give yourself a raise. Very hands-on to help succeed from day one. Company treats its employees great. They care about you making money and having a higher standard of living. It's sales essentially but doesn't really feel like it.

    Cons

    There will always be cons with a sales environment. Some divisions are more successful than others, Switching divisions never happens, even though it seems like it would be beneficial to some.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate divisions with less success and bulk up other divisions. More than enough to go around. Other than that, environment is wonderful!

    Pros

    Good pay when you do well...but it is all comes from you.

    Cons

    Horrible management, horrible benefits, treat ppl like a number. There is no training. Turn and burn.

    Advice to Management

    Treat ppl like you want to be treated. It isn't all a numbers game as far as what you can get from ppl. And ppl have feelings. Not all about the bottom line...have some ethics as well!

    I worked at Bradsby Group full-time

    Pros

    The income potential is amazing. It's a very simple business model, make money or look for another job.

    Cons

    Not a very healthy work environment. Vacation time is frowned up along with calling in sick.
    Quality of life is horrible. It's all about making money.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother. When the owner only cares about money, it really does not matter what management thinks
