I worked at Merritt Hawkins full-time (More than a year)

Pros

industry leader, growing market, definite need, good training

Cons

didnt care about clients once deal was signed, only wanted next sale, created atmosphere of fear, would fire and replace people rather than let them build reputation and trust in territory. numbers were the only thing that mattered.

Advice to Management

find the good people and let them stay and build relationships with the clients. clients are tired of the revolving door sales person

    I have been working at Merritt Hawkins full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to make 100K and more within 18 months. Great training. Great support from VPs. Everyone wants you to succeed. They have a proven process that when you use it correctly it makes you successful. The company is growning and they want you to grow with it. I think that anyone with a hunger and a drive to be successful should take this job.

    Cons

    None to think of at this time

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Merritt Hawkins (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits and excellent training.

    Cons

    Expectations can be unrealistic. You are expected to perform in an industry that's product is "people" which are unpredictable. You are expected to make 100 calls a day despite the 6 hours of training a day that are expected. They seem to a have a mentality that "We invented this industry, we are the best, so this is how its' always been done and how we are going to keep doing it, despite changes in the market place." They operate on a script and at this level of sales not all clients want to hear a "script." Its really a churn and burn kind of environment. 1 or 2 out of 10 may make it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some managers that have actually managed at other companies instead of just at MH. I think the company needs some new blood or atleast managers from other divisions that don't operate with a "bully mentality." Most manager seemed to be of the same mindset and lacked diversity of experience and culture.
