    I have been working at Motion Recruitment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training, very easy access to management, fun culture. The managers will mold you into a good salesperson if you listen to them and grind.

    Great earning potential (over 100k in one to two years if you last).

    Cons

    Way too many morning meetings / role plays / meetings in general / people constantly saying the same things over and over again. As with many sales jobs, extremely high turnover.

    I worked at Motion Recruitment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent open ended environment with strong emphasis on team work. As a new college grad, you're expected to come in driven and determined to grow. You will learn a lot of transferable recruiting and sales skills in a listen, copy, and imitate learning structure. Great opportunity into the world of recruiting

    Cons

    As a third party agency, a lot of your performance is evaluated based off numbers. You will have weekly and monthly metrics that you are expected to hit. They seem unreasonable at times but are never impossible. Management does a good job of helping you reach your goals. Hit your goals, you'll do fine. If you cannot make the improvements, the job can be stressful.

    I have been working at Motion Recruitment full-time

    Pros

    Great leadership, they will always go above and beyond to help you break down what you need to do to succeed. Great bonus structure.

    Cons

    The training can be a lot to swallow at first, but it gets easier with time. Your day is different every day, so you need to be very adaptable in this job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but maybe ask more opinions of entry level folks sometimes.

    Pros

    This is a great company with many growth opportunities for anyone who wants to work hard to add value.

    * Promotes from within: management is observant of your performance and is not afraid to give you more responsibility if they feel you have earned it.
    * Great company climate: everyone is happy with their roles, responsibilities and management.
    * Awesome culture: lots of hard work, but also lots of fun and camaraderie. Coworkers are respectful and management is helpful.

    Cons

    Motion is a young, evolving company that is constantly improving.
    The resulting changes mean it falls short on having proper departmental procedures and role definitions for all areas.

    Advice to Management

    Continue implementing your vision for the company!

    Pros

    Motion Recruitment has been "home" for the past year and a half. From the minute I interviewed, I knew this would be a great place to work. My recruiter assured me that I would be really happy here, boy was he right! The staff is not only helpful but such a joy to work with. I was promoted months after being here and I have truly seen so much opportunity for advancement and growth. There have been so many new jobs created/added due to the growth. I will be here for years to come!!!

    Cons

    I honestly cant think of any worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!!

    Pros

    Fantastic career growth
    Improved Multitasking skills
    Improved communication skills
    Improved management skills
    Excellent Benefits
    Phenomenal leadership
    Good Team environment
    Excellent recognition

    Cons

    Starting base salary is a little low
    You don't make commission for the first 10-12 months if not longer.
    Training could be better

    Advice to Management

    Improving the training program to longer and more interactive is what I believe will reduce the turnover rate of recruiters. The video training program is insufficient to be successful in this business. You have to figure you way around at first with not much guidance which is good and bad at the same time.
