I worked at NonStop Recruitment full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

If you are a recent graduate looking interested in trying recruitment then they are worth contacting Great stepping stone for progressing on to roles with other companies
Training was of a respectable standard.
Requirement for all new starters to learn about their industry which is very helpful for when discussing with candidates/clients
Chance to experience living in a new country
Friendly environment with helpful colleagues
Good social life
Some of the senior management were extremely helpful
The company finds accommodation for new starters

Cons

Very target driven role, with unrealistic targets which no one in the company ever achieved
Guidance on how you were meant to achieve these targets generally consisted of a combination put downs and an instruction to "make more calls" even though the calling list had been called through numerous times
Location is essentially a small city in the middle of nowhere, if you're not willing to travel then it will feel like you are living a very isolated existence
Salary is so poor it is unreal, I actually lost money with this job
Many promises were broken
Promotion 1. takes too long (for the salary you start off with you need to be promoted within a few months to start earning commission, otherwise you will not have enough money to afford food)
2. is almost impossible to achieve, a small number of people were lucky enough to be promoted but the promotions only started happening after unhappy staff started leaving
Staff retention is awful, of the people who were there when I was, approximately half have left for other roles, some even leaving with no future role lined up.
Favouritism between the teams, the team which had the hardest roles to fill NEVER received any rewards/extra incentive, however those who worked on much easier roles were often taken out for company paid meals by their line manager despite not achieving their targets
You were EXPECTED to work additional hours with no reward or recompense. Staff were pressured to work from 8am - 8pm every day & to work the weekends / bank holidays with no breaks / lunches - if you did decide to eat then you were expected to do so at your desk whilst working
Atmosphere of do as we say, not as we do from senior staff who regularly would disappear for extended lunch meetings, arrived just before the day started and left as soon as they could most days
The company charges staff a high rent for the accommodation they set up for new starters in comparison to properties offered by private landlords in the area

Advice to Management

Pay your staff a reasonable wage, don't lie when recruiting new employees, be fair with rewards

    Pros

    NonStop is niet zomaar een bedrijf, het is veel meer dan dat. Ze steken zoveel energie in de sfeer tussen de collega's zodat je je direct thuis voelt. De communicatie gaat hierdoor heel vlot en het is gemakkelijker om positieve resultaten te bereiken. Blijf zo doorgaan!

    Cons

    In mijn ogen niets. Daarom dat ik hier blijf werken.

    Pros

    it pays off - you do have to put long hours in at first and really learn and take feedback as well as apply it
    Prague - for some it's great destination - but I get it others may like different locations - you need to count that you will be in Prague up to a year
    training - these guys know their stuff and they can train you - of course if your motivation is there in a first place
    cool international environment - company is at the moment going through massive growth, Italians, French, Spanish, other Europeans, Dutch and Germans are all at NS. So if you more reserved or party animal - you will find your crowd
    money - basic is as it's called - basic and it's still good they actually pay you for first few months where you really only an investment from NS side - however they do train you so that if you believe in it your chance to be successful is so much higher

    Cons

    well yes long hours - but again I don't know anybody who earns 6 figures salary and works 40h a week
    growing business - growth hurts and it is chaotic - you really need to be flexible as things change on daily basis and you sometimes will be asked to go with the flow

    Advice to Management

    Work load is crazy on occasion maybe a bit more organisation would be good - but again business is growing.
