    I have been working at JobGiraffe full-time

    Pros

    A pleasure to work with. Kris promised me a job and did not stop until I received an offer. Quick offer.

    Cons

    No complaints. Realize, as with all "angencies", things might have taken longer, but fortunately I got an offer right away.

    Pros

    Julieann Zych was great to work with! So helping and listened to my concerns! She didn't just place me in a job just to fill a seat, She actually looked at my skills and qualifications and fit me in a position that I would succeed in. From the moment we first spoke on the phone to the moment she secured me a job. Great company and great people working for them!

    Cons

    I do not have any cons in my experience

    Pros

    The small company size enables you to learn a lot! People at JG in my experience were very open to share information about multiple sides of the business and I loved that.

    Cons

    Most of the placements were administrative and relatively small potatoes in the recruiting world.

    I worked at JobGiraffe full-time

    Pros

    They will help you find a job

    Cons

    All the money you earn gets collected by JobGiraffe and then JobGiraffe will pay you out your share. They aren't transparent about the money being made. When I confronted my agent about the money coming in, he had his manager call me back. Manager tries to inform me they don't make any money for themselves and "only keep enough to cover taxes of employment" ...

    The line I heard more than ever from them prior to this conversation was "The more money you make, the more we make." They must train their employees to say that line because I heard if from 3 different agents there--- which cannot possibly be true if they "only keep enough money to cover taxes."

    Bottom line is, we (contractors) know that you are making money on us. All I would ask is that you be more transparent about the amount and not feed us ridiculous lines like "we only keep enough money to cover taxes."

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with your contractors.

    Pros

    The commission structure is great for the employees. If you are good at the job you will make good money. Small enough that you can get to know everyone, but big enough that you can make a career.

    Cons

    At the start you have to put in the work and learn to adapt to different situations, but this is only a con if you think it is.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for growth
