    I have been working at Goodwin Recruiting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Opportunity to build your own business (with client and candidate sourcing) and work as hard as you need to earn what you want - Great onboarding training and continuous support and engagement from the corporate support team - Access to great tools that minimize the non-value added work (Salesforce, LI Recruiter, etc.) - Commitment to maintaining brand standards and providing continuous, clear, transparent communication to clients and candidates (as a former candidate, this is something that resonated the most with me) - Work from anywhere and flexibility to make your own hours - Collaborative team; overall a great group of people that celebrate each other's success

    Cons

    - 100% commission; you have to work hard, build your pipeline and keep on it or you will not be successful.

    Pros

    Young team made it a fun working environment

    We are, of course, very sorry to hear about your poor experience. However, we are wondering if you meant to review our sister company 360 Intel (Mystery Shop Division) as we don't employ client service managers. Also, our entire team works remotely, so your comment about a "young team made it a fun work environment" doesn't seem to make sense. If this review was completed in error, we would appreciate it deleted as not to affect the wrong company. Either way, we are sorry for your experience and wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

    I worked at Goodwin Recruiting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay was decent but management had no direction and are only concerned with their bottom line.

    Cons

    this is a business after all, they truly don't care about their clients and are more worried about their portfolio than actually helping people.

    Pros

    Working with this group has been fantastic. I have worked as a recruiter with other firms but this experience by far exceeds them all. Although we work remotely, there is still an amazing feeling of CONNECTION with the other offices. The corporate team is beyond amazing and always supportive no matter what you need -- because it's all about providing the best for us in order to be the best for our clients and candidates. They offer: * Amazing training * Great Support * All the tools you need to be successful * Continued coaching with talented and dedicated coaches

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    I have been working at Goodwin Recruiting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The job gives the unique opportunity to control your own destiny. With extensive support in every area. The support that you will not find even in very expensive franchise opportunities. Just to list a few, training, ongoing development, accounting, and marketing.

    Cons

    That I did not find the job 20 years ago!

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Goodwin Recruiting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked with Goodwin for over 3 years now after a 34 year career in the restaurant industry. When I left the restaurant industry I knew I wanted to stay connected with the hospitality industry and just grew tired of operations. I found Goodwin and made the best decision of my professional career when I joined them. Work from home and not on the road all the time. Work with an amazing group of talented professionals that offer support at every turn. Grow as a team and become more and more of what the clients and candidates are looking for on a daily basis. This is the best job I have ever had.

    Cons

    You have to be able to work from home and not be distracted by the fact there is no one looking over your shoulder. You are your own boss and responsible for your own success. Unfortunately, some people can't handle that.
