    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been with FRG for almost 3 years now and I have loved my experience so far. I was looking at various staffing agencies at the time and this was the only one I found with a structured training program and career progression opportunities based on performance. I did not join right after college so I wanted to make sure I was in an environment where I could be promoted quickly based on my performance. I've had the...

    Cons

    You cannot expect to see success right away. You might see other people succeed before you do and you might think you're working ten times as hard as them. You need to trust the process and you'll get there, too.

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great atmosphere - we're a team together! Well supported, help with organizing your day when you start, training is second to none and this is ongoing when I got onto the sales floor.

    Cons

    None that I haven't seen in other companies really. You have to work hard to earn money, but were else is that not true?

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really, my manager is really helpful both professionally and personally.

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I like the fact that everything is merit based. Your commission and promotions are directly correlated with your ability to perform. I am someone who started off pretty slow and was very inconsistent for the first year or so. I worked really hard and once things started picking up and I started seeing success, it motivated me to work even harder to get to the place where I am now. If you aren't afraid to work hard and...

    Cons

    Rejection can be tough and frustrating and this is a rejection prone industry. Sales in general is challening so if you are looking for something that is going to lead to immediate success and growth without having to work for it, this probably isn't the best opportunity for you. Then again, good things in life aren't just handed to you. Put in the work and make things happen for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the support and training your staff needs especially with markets that may be more challenging. I think more techincal knowledge and training could go a long way.

      I worked at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      NFI is a great place to start your career. Only thing is , is that I ended up in the office that they did not care too much about. Cool incentives Cool outings meet cool people

      Cons

      Sell fresh out of college students a dream they can make money when in reality you get there and you have no jobs to work on. Then are expected after alittle training to get your own business. Little do you know that you are on a saturated market where noone likes Nigel Frank with a technology that is over saturated and too old to gain alot of new traction. On top of that management is mediocre and did not know how to...

      Advice to Management

      Next time you shut down an office give a notice and some more severance living isn’t cheap. And if you want people to stay offer them money to relocate and treat them better when they are working for you. “Clients do not come first Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of your business.” - Richard Branson

      I worked at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Not many pros when working for this company. Only that I had a good training class.

      Cons

      The first day on the desks when training was over I could tell this was going to be a tough job. Not because the work itself is hard just the KPIs and the management style was very excessive. This job doesn’t require much skill and honestly you wouldn’t even need to go to college for this. It’s all pure luck. My experience here was a bunch of petty nonsense. I was told how good I was doing and even made my first deal...
