    Pros

    You get what you put in. If you put in the work you get rewarded with the uncapped commission structure. Good leadership that will help you anytime you need assistance. And if you are putting in the work, they leave you alone and let you do your thing. Hours aren't bad either.

    Cons

    You have to be willing to work, if you want a free rid this is not for you.

    Pros

    Great work environment with a superb team that is full of energy to back you up. The company seems like it’s been growing and is continuing to grow, so there is the opportunity for upward advancements. The director is great and easy to talk to, the manager is always there for any help you may need. Salary plus a commission plan!

    Cons

    No cons to think of, as I am still new to the company. But overall it has been a pleasant experience.

    Pros

    I have worked for Global Employment Solutions for a few months now, and everything about those few months has been a fantastic whirlwind of learning new skills, helping others to find jobs that fit, and interacting with great people. My strong impression from the very beginning was the care that the director shows for each candidate that steps in the door. I also have the opportunity to do follow-up calls with candidates after their first day at work, where they have been placed by one of Global's recruiters. I ask about their experience with Global and their recruiters. The vast majority of candidates jump on the opportunity to rave about the positive experience they had with Global and the consideration, professionalism, and helpfulness of their recruiter. These calls serve to solidify my highly positive experience with Global, and I am daily encouraged by the intentionality of the professionals that I work with. It is an honor to be a part of this thriving company.

    Cons

    Occasionally certain jobs have a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work. It is obvious how much and how well you care for your employees, and we are grateful for your availability and encouragement. Thank you!
