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

Pros

Great Social Life
Nice Accomodation
New Experience
First Class Training
Liked the Management a lot, friendly, approachable and also take the time to find out how you are doing.
They are doing what they say which is 'organically growing'
Clearly a company growing very very quickly

Its either a pro or a con I suppose but I was on performace management and decided to head back to the UK to go into Marketing. I enjoyed it but a lot is expected of you and to be honest, I didn't have the 'umph' that some of the people who joined did. There is people being promoted and once promoted are starting to earn good money, but not everyone makes it at all and they seem quite quick to move on those who don't.

One person I started with has been promoted and loving it, another one has gone back to the UK, was working at a competitor where they weren't as 'on top of you' all the time. Though apparently it makes for a more boring environment.

Would reccomend it to friends but only those who are pretty ambitious.

Cons

Not in the UK, unless you are promoted.
Very hot in the summer!
Not everyone makes it.
Don't settle for people being lazy
Its hard work.

For me Recruitment is not easy, nor what people think it is. Is driven by people and although we got quite a lot of training about 'perception' and others. If you don't 'get' people then they probably cannot teach you to do.

They do make you work quite hard, but its the same in any trainee recruitment position.

Advice to Management

Socialise more with the Junior people.
Explain the earnings process better. People are earning good money but the more junior staff don't know how it works.

    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for Non Stop for 8 months. So far my successes and failures sit hand in hand and at times I wonder if I can do it. The truth is anyone who is bettering themselves will often feel this way. I truly believe that this company has made me a better person and has given me skills that I can take to any job.
             In my previous employment I was frustrated when I was not promoted to management because I put the hard work in. Here, the targets are binding contracts confirmed in ink and are reachable for any hard working individual.
             The training is beyond brilliant. If you show them that you have and will give what it takes, in return they will give you 100%. They are a credit to the company and you can walk away into any job with key skills that no university or school will give you.
            I would say that recruitment is not for everyone and you have to commit 100% in order to achieve 100% and that is the truth.

    Cons

    The salary is 'different'. If your used to a UK wage then it will be a culture shock and you will need to chill on the spending however, its still a great commission structure that has resulted in consultants taking home £30,000 a month at times! Now tell me a job that offers that kind of cash to graduates?

    This is only a Con if your one of those 'I don't do overtime' kind of people. This job literally will give you as much as you give. Sometimes that means late nights at the office and even weekend work. If you can't see the benefits that come from hard work then this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    I would love some Digestive Biscuits. Apart from that I cannot complain! My director Nathan always says hello and asks how I am. In my last 3 jobs I was never greeted or noticed even though I was upper Management!
