I have been working at Hays full-time (Less than a year)
Since my start in September 2018, I have been impressed with Hays' on-boarding process. Considering this is a new industry for me, I have been able to receive ample amount of hands on training and coaching. With most jobs in career, I always reserve any conclusions until 90 days. That means challenging myself to stay open minded and ask a lot of questions. So far, I have concluded that this role fits all of my professional requirements. It challenges me daily, I have continuous support from my leaders and team, and I'm able to see the fruit of my labor. Coming from the Non-profit sector, you tend to rely on the intangibles to hold you over, but after experiencing quick success, with 3 placements in 3 months; which results in supporting 3 different families with new opportunities. I couldn't imagine a better balance.
Although the job will require a lot of sitting, I am able to shift my energy and focus towards the task at hand; finding qualified candidates. Be prepared to work hard to over come natural adversity in this job. That means excepting rejection, challenging your game plan and being patient. TTP (Trust the Process)

There is so much to be said about Hays as an organization and what it means to work not for them but with them. Almost a year ago i found myself here on Glassdoor reading review after review in hopes it would provide me enough feedback for me to feel comfortable making a decision to accept an offer or not. People can have different experiences and i came across reviews both good and bad. However, after reviewing quite a few of the reviews i had enough information to be comfortable accepting and i look back and i am more than happy that i did. Since starting with Hays i have had the opportunity to work alongside some of the most talented professionals i have ever worked with and they have mentored me and provided me with some of the best development and training EVER! The company culture is the epitome of work hard/ play hard and we truly do both. I have never had more fun with an organization in my life. It is a rare opportunity to find a company in the sales/recruiting industry that doesn't just advertise work hard/play hard but actually lives it. With the training i have received paired with my hunger/urgency to be successful i have come to distinguish myself as a viable part of the company. In under a year my success with Hays has afforded me the opportunity to pay off student loans and purchase a home! This is a high performing culture and if you are hungry Hays is the place to be. At the end of the day performance is critical to your success and the companies success. If you are ready to perform and enjoy doing it Hays is the right place for you. For anyone wondering, i don't get a bonus or any incentive for my review. I merely get to brag about the company i love and my success and everyone loves to brag!
- Great Holiday/Vacation package
- Great base pay and lucrative commissions
- Awesome and high performing team
- experiencing rapid expansion which allows a ton of opportunity down the road
I have yet to experience anything that i would consider a con. If/when i do i will update the thread.

Hays is the leading global specialist recruitment group, and the market leader in places such as the UK, Germany and Australia. We are the experts in recruiting qualified, professional and skilled people across a wide range of specialised industries and professions. We operate across the private and public sectors, dealing in permanent positions, contract roles and temporary assignments.
In terms of cons the only thing i can think of is we do work long hours (on what is considered an average working week). However these do pass quickly as the workload we have keeps us busy.
Advice to Management
An effective manager is someone who communicates effectively in person, print, texts, and email. Listening and two-way feedback characterize interactions with others. The manager should also open to receiving feedback from colleagues and reporting staff. Avoid a defensive response and be willing to change your behavior when the feedback is on target. But, mostly, understand and act upon the power of interaction.

Compensation - base isn't great but amazing commission structure
Benefits could be better. Standard 401k, medical, dental, vision, etc. No commuter benefits, no tuition reimbursement, no 'fun' or 'modern' benefits that are attractive.
Good training provided by the firm.
Stressful role as it is sales oriented.
Great work atmosphere
Meet different range of professional
get to know a variety of industries
Poor work / life balance
