    Small autonomous offices with a team feel, but competitive with other markets

    Systems are not as good as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Get us some systems that work, otherwise keep up the great work!!

    I worked at Job News full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Family friendly work hours. Co-workers are great,the company's Dígítal Recruitment Campaign, job fairs in certain states work great for customers. Product rates are pretty reasonable.

    Cons

    The position is a glorified telemarketing job. You are required to make 100+ phone calls a day and the quota for a new hire is unattainable. They don't give you existing accounts, so you basically sink or swim. The pay will never equal the amount of work you put in. Company benefits are terrible and you would have to work a second job to afford the company healthcare plan.

    I would not recommend this to anyone looking for a real career.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on professionalism in the office, manager needs to be more present in the office to train new hires and answer employee concerns, training should be condensed into 2-3 weeks instead of random times in a 7 week period, new hires should finish ALL the training before sending them out to the field, morning meetings should be cut down to once a week and no more than 30 min (it cuts into productivity time), new hire sales goals should start on the first week after the completion of ALL training and not in the first day they start.

    Pros

    The digital products work, especially in this time of low unemployment. Fantastic job fair events as well - something to be proud of.

    Cons

    We support clients' brands, not our own. It can be a challenge to get in the door to explain how effective Job News' digital products are. The good news is, customers return time and time again after they test-drive their first campaign or event.

    Advice to Management

    Pam should continue to support us just as she always does! She has over twenty years' experience in the industry, many of which are in Tampa Bay. To upper management - keep up the GREAT work creating effective digital recruitment solutions.

    I worked at Job News full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible with schedules.....and that's about it.

    Cons

    Unsupportive HR and administrators.
    Horrible department manager(s.)
    Co-workers constantly complain and hate their jobs.
    Work is boring and completely production-based with no rewards set in place.
    Office is cold and unwelcoming.

    Advice to Management

    Before you set out to have a production based department, you have to put rewards in place. There are none here. The designers are constantly berated by both their managers and sales reps, no one is ever pleased, and their design standards are out of date and not aesthetically pleasing.

    Pros

    Base pay is decent but you only get comission if you sell more than $2500 if not they pocket your $2499 or below sales. Can leave early as many times throughout the week as long as you tell them.

    Cons

    Unorganized, Everyone is always out of the office on personal appointments (hair, nails, dr.s) a few times a week, They dont train you well and tell you to "wing it". Expected calls 250 a week of cold calling

    Advice to Management

    Vital to properly and thoroughly train newbies and not tell the new employee during the interview process that one of the hiring managers does not like you one bit. Favoritism on who gets what leads. Disappointed.
