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

    I have been working at NonStop Recruitment full-time

    Pros

    The great people, the sharp business skills you'll learn, the fun meals and trips, the uncapped commission, living in Prague, the clear career path, the culture, the ongoing coaching and development of employees.

    Cons

    You need to be motivated in order to unlock the door to the riches. If you're motivated they'll put you on a career fast-track.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going.

    I have been working at NonStop Recruitment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    So many opportunities to progress, the great people, the visionary, people-skilled and talented MD, The sense of community, sense of adventure, great office locations in great cities, free fresh fruit and superb coffee, creative atmosphere, comp[any will be global in 30 months or so, ongoing coaching environment, lots of support -you get that good feeling going into work...I don't even get the "oh no it's Monday tomorrow" feeling.

    Cons

    Have to remember to ask for help and support sometimes as there are so many projects being worked on it is possible to get that drowning feeling from time to time and some guidance is needed. Luckily, if you ask for support and guidance, you get it, no worries.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with this special vision and company culture - only emphasise that support is there for those who are spinning those plates.
