  1. "One of the best commission structures but dated systems"

    I worked at Computer People full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The salary and commission structures they can offer are some of the best in Bristol (where there is a very high volume of recruitment agencies).
    Great team of people.
    Support and training available, if you ask for it

    Cons

    The database system they use is very outdated and clunky, a source of many frustrations for everyone.
    Working well in to the night or weekends can and does go unrecognised, while a later start in the morning is picked up on regardless.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more £££ in rewards for your staff. Before Adecco took over the high-performer trips were a great incentive and other companies still offer those. Miami > golf day in UK.

    I worked at Computer People full-time

    Pros

    The staff are friendly and look to help each other. There are good incentives for overachieving or becoming top biller. Good database and ability to reach the active markets. An excellent company to start your recruitment career.

    Cons

    The drive to hit KPI's despite billing figures can detract from the way you run your business. Gaining access to further training can be difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Allow each member of staff to take full ownership of their desk if targets are being met and step in if targets are not being met/ beaten.

    I worked at Computer People full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good training, good commission structure, good infrastructure and support, not horrifically cut throat, fairly good name in the market. It's a hard job and they get that.

    Cons

    Can be limited in attacking new companies as incumbents tend to sit on accounts and matybe not be as active as they should be. No sharing of candidates / splits.

    Advice to Management

    You know what you're doing generally, look at candidate / client ownership and getting everything on the CRM - but you know this already.

    The commission structure is strong and achievable.
    Support and training opportunities

    Long hours - you get what you put in as in any sales role
    sometimes can be very process driven
