    I worked at Doherty | The Employment Experts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent first work experience out of college if you’re interested in exploring a career in recruiting and HR functions. Great coworkers - they truly become your family if you get into a good office. Some senior staff are phenomenal and should be applauded for everything they have done over the years.

    Cons

    - The biggest issue with this company is pay. It is absolutely ridiculous how much you underpay your recruiters. Robert Half and Kelly Services offer entry recruiters $45k-50k base and senior recruiters here don’t even make that. - Retention - this goes along with pay. It’s like a revolving door. You’re considered senior amongst recruiters if you make it to a year. - Incompetent sales team - actually TRAIN your...

    Advice to Management

    Insist on conducting exit interviews for every recruiter that leaves. You’re not always going to like what someone has to say but the best way to grow as a company is to learn and improve. Quit being afraid to hear the truth and do something about it.

    I worked at Doherty | The Employment Experts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Calla Maccrimmon matched me to the right job based on LISTENING to want I wanted in a job then worked with me going through the jobs they had open or soon available. Probing out on a few until the perfect match was found. This was a refreshing change to other agencies I have worked with who seem to have been only been interested in filling their assignments.

    Cons

    Rapid! The prepaid debit card they offer is the worst, slowest, Incompetent and most inconvenient pay card company i ever had the misfortune to do business with. Get one somewhere else and give that account info for your direct deposit. See below, this isnt really Doherty's fault and I hope my suggestion below helps them with feedback on it.

    Advice to Management

    Change to a better pay card company, Rapid! Is not rapid in getting the funds transferred, is very fast to take above average fees for any transaction and the bill pay system is so screwed up most places wont accept their payments! They sent me a paper check to forward to my electric company!!

    I worked at Doherty | The Employment Experts for less than a year

    Pros

    They found me a job I enjoy

    Cons

    After transferring out of the temp position, Doherty continued to pay me for a week after I was no longer employed by them. at which point they demanded the money back in a timely manner, only to sit on the check for 60 days before cashing it.

    Advice to Management

    Please get to the bottom of this, because when I went in to return the money, I was told that this same problem happened to many others, including ones that worked at the same company and same shift.
