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

    Pros

    Training program is better than most in the industry Fun environment, very young company so easy to be friends with your coworkers, free open bar once a month, and potential to leave early on Fridays Potential to make a lot of money is there (For about 5% of the company)

    Cons

    Ultimately it is a typical staffing role and some people will really thrive. It is possible to make a lot of money but the idea that all you have to do is work hard and you'll make $100K a year is simply not realistic. I would estimate at the Tampa office that only about 15- 20% of the office is making more than $50K a year which would be fine if I hadn't been told by the recruiter that "you can coast and make $55-70K...

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

    Pros

    I have been with FRG for almost 2 years now and I have loved the adventure so fare. I get here by luck. I joined right after my Msc. I was looking for a competitive and fast paced environnement. Also, I absolutely wanted an environment where I could be promoted quickly based on my performance and involvement. The « FRG dream » happened pretty fast : variety in my activity, great relationships with my clients...

    Cons

    Ofc there is stress ! We are the traders of the labour Market. There is no great earnings & fast progression with no moment of stress. However, I have the chance to have a great team & management to make the experience unique despite of the up & downs. And regarding long hours, I am young, dynamique and I am ambitious so it’s not a problem to me the first year while in London. However, Barcelona office...

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

    Pros

    Good managers and coworkers. I feel valued by my managers and have seen them voucher for me and are invested in me staying. I get along with pretty much everyone as well. I really enjoy my team.

    Cons

    The worst turnover I’ve ever seen at any company. Plus I constantly feel like I’m not getting the pay or compensation I deserve. In the interview process they mislead you in thinking you’ll get 20-30% commission when in reality it’s 10%-20% of what you make for the company at best.

    Advice to Management

    Raise base pay so industry standard. Stop firing people who want to stay.
