Pros

I have the latitude to run my "desk" however I like.

Cons

The position is VERY metrics driven. A certain number of calls must be made every day. The quality of calls is unimportant.

Advice to Management

Be sure that when you are interviewing new candidates that you describe this as a phone only postion. No outside sales is allowed

    Pros

    Relaxed corporate culture. Your earnings are only limited by your tenacity and diligence. Not a micromanaged enviroment UNLESS you are trying to find out information from corporate. If you are comfortable only making $50k, you can do that in your sleep and you should look elsewhere. If you want to make $150k+, that is entirely possible.

    Cons

    Very high turn over of employees. No real structure to training. It's truely a numbers game and a lot of the training is "on the go" and situational analysis relying on commissioned tenured recruiters to "train and mentor" new recruiters without compensation.

    The world of recruiting has evolved over the last 43 years since the company was founded. Senior Level Management and outside industry "experts/consultants/board members" who haven't worked a desk in decades do not always understand the changing dynamics of today's industry/market. Ideas are solicited but rarely implemented.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost a lot of talented tenured individuals over the past few years. If you truely want to grow the company then empower the "active desk" producers to make their own hiring decisions if you truely want teams built around them. The tenured recruiters will always do what they have to do to generate their billings and income but to take their commissioned time to break in or train a new recruiter costs them money in time and effort. If thats to be expected to develop teams, then incentivize them by not charging a draw. True recruiting is a 7/24 career. Implement options of flex schedules. 3X12s, 4X10 for those that produce. An income generating recruiter doesn't always have to be in the "office" to produce. They will do what is needed to generate their revenue.


  2. "Great Professional Recruiting Company with excellent mentorship and great income potential"
