    Cons

    If you have any recruiting experience at all - do not, I repeat, DO NOT leave your current company to work for Townsend & Associates. Whatever you don't like about your current company, please trust when I say, it is not as bad as Townsend & Associates. You will not make it through the first year in order to reward yourself with the generous comp package that is promised, which most of us left our current situations because of that lacking.

    You will have an 11:00 recruiter meeting every morning that is heavily focused on negative results from the day prior and management beating you down regarding your unattainable metrics. The only way you are able to achieve the level of metrics they require is to work 10 hour days, which most will do, in order to avoid feeling shunned in these meetings. You are expected to talk about your struggles, which are largely connected to submitting solely to MSP's. You will work the same jobs day in and day out in the same markets and you will still be expected to explain/reiterate those same struggles attached to you having already submitted your select candidates in that market with the laundry list of requirements that the 6/mo contract entails.

    You will most likely be reached out to via LinkedIn with mention of a remote recruiting opportunity, which sounds fantastic for any of those like myself, who was facing a daunting commute everyday. The commute is by far better than having to report to management. They have no actual recruiting experience themselves. You will be tag teamed and micromanaged throughout your day; taking away all joys of working from home. They will create a negative work environment for you.

    There are more coordinators than there are recruiters and you are assigned a coordinator for support. However, you are responsible for formatting your own resumes and submitting all candidates to the MSP's, which can be extremely time consuming and you are responsible for 3-5 submittals a day. The coordinators basically check up on you to make sure you've bombarded your candidates after an initial phone screen with the paperwork Townsend & Associates requires before an interview has even been requested. They will send every one of your candidates an application asking them to provide 10 years of work history along with references within 24-48 hours. Once again, before an interview is requested. Why they won't accept the information provided on the candidates resume is beyond me.

    Most of the company reviews are not left by actual employees of Townsend & Associates, but rather contractors. Do yourself a huge favor and pass!

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach! Positivity should start from the top. You are the problem!
