    I have been working at Creative Financial Staffing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had no previous sales/recruiting experience, but CFS welcomed me with open arms and provided the training required and tools to succeed. If you are the type of person who can work independently and are self-motivated, it is a great atmosphere, you will not be micro-managed which coming from a previous position in which I was, it was a breath of fresh air. They also have a company wide business casual (jeans) policy dress code. I also like that the VP's (Sr. Leadership) provide direct communication with all levels of employees, if you want to discuss a challenge you are facing, upper management welcomes a call and will take the time to discuss and work through it with you.

    Cons

    While you are provided a base salary + commission, there are no annual merit increases on your actual base (i.e. 1-3%) typically applied for inflation purposes.

    I have been working at Creative Financial Staffing full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity to grow as a recruiter! Excellent training from the top down (and even from "newer" staff that you're working with/against).

    Cons

    Knowing you're going to let down a lot of candidates that you meet.

  3. "Recruiter"

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Creative Financial Staffing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not very many except you learn recruiting and resume writing skills. Helps knowing the back end process; what employers are looking for in interviews and on your resume.

    Cons

    Micro-management to the fullest and unobtainable expectations for differentiating market areas. ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY ARE DIFFERENT. This is an easy understanding of basic marketing that refers to demographics and target market. Also, way too many phone calls, report, and unnecessary administrative duties that take up quality time.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot follow the same standards for all areas of the continental US. Competition, rates, and many other factors become a part of the whole picture. Revisit each area, understand the market demands, and competition-revamp accordingly. Also, figure out a way to streamline your administrative duties to find more effective time for your employees to reach their daily/weekly goals.

    Pros

    They offer somewhat decent pay and are a ESOP company. Which only pays off if you can even last 5 years.

    Cons

    Everything else. Poor training, employees are micromanaged, unstructured environment, high turnover, branches are small/ineffective and quality of work is under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Give more support to employees.

    Pros

    The people at CFS where very kind, professional and cared about me as an employee. They wanted to make sure I was happy where they had placed me.

    Cons

    Being in a temp job, even if it is full time, still makes you feel like you are an outsider. This is not due to anything CFS controls it is just how it is if you are an outsider in a company. CFS did a great job checking on me and taking care of any of my concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the job you are doing. The staff is amazing and very caring people.
