    I have been working at NonStop Recruitment full-time

    Pros

    The great people, the sharp business skills you'll learn, the fun meals and trips, the uncapped commission, living in Prague, the clear career path, the culture, the ongoing coaching and development of employees.

    Cons

    You need to be motivated in order to unlock the door to the riches. If you're motivated they'll put you on a career fast-track.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going.

    I have been working at NonStop Recruitment full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing by far about this organisation is the people and their attitude they have towards their work. The atmosphere is one of ambition, drive and determination to do well. If this is an environment that appeals then joining NonStop is the perfect next step for you.

    Another great aspect to joining this company is the training academy you go through. This includes learning the full 360 recruitment process. It has heightened my commercial awareness and capacity to carry myself professionally, which are transferable skills for any role. Furthermore, once you get promoted the training continues with very capable team managers in place that will help you grow and understand how to handle the inevitable challenges that the world of recruitment brings on a daily basis.

    Cons

    If you are not ambitious and motivated to succeed this is not the opportunity for you.

    Pros

    Supportive environment with an award winning training program you will get nowhere else!

    target driven specifically for people who can be good at the job and to weed out those who can't... For those who don't see that as a pro, then you don't understand how bad it is to work amongst people that lack motivation and maturity!

    Looking at other recruitment agencies in the market recruiting in life sciences and IT, nonstop has the best commission structure. (I took home 12k one month and someone in the company regularly does!)

    A strict organic growth structure- 95% of the management team came through the trainee development program. (The most junior has been in the business 2 years).

    Top billing consultants annually go on an all expenses paid trip. Barcelona in 2012, Austria 2013, Dubai 2014.

    The Christmas party is usually carnage that people tend to talk about all year!

    Cons

    As with all recruitment jobs, it's not a 9 to 5 job if you want to get off the starting block. Expect high volumes of phone calls where you're expected to have intelligent and informative conversations with incredibly bright (and sometimes tough to manage) candidates.

    Early days as a researcher can be fairly dreary, because you essentially learn the ropes and help senior consultants identify suitable candidates without getting into the technical nitty gritty stuff... This comes once you've learnt the theory and can actually hold your own on the phone, and actually learn how to talk (you'd be amazed at the number of young adults that cannot have an intelligent conversation!)

    As a result of the high pressure and also the "not so exciting"early days as a researcher, the high volumes of people that join in a group can dwindle down over the course of a few months... For those who get easily attached it can be a bit of a reality check and a lonely place at the time.

    The industry leading commission that nonstop recruitment bangs on about comes once you become a full consultant. Expect to be there with 6-9 months* *subject to commitment and work ethic.

    Because of the organic growth structure, it's difficult to get a perspective of what the actual competition is like and who you're really trying to out perform.

    To be a top billing consultant target is not easy to hit!

    The Christmas party is usually carnage that people tend to talk about all year!

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

    Pros

    Great Social Life
    Nice Accomodation
    New Experience
    First Class Training
    Liked the Management a lot, friendly, approachable and also take the time to find out how you are doing.
    They are doing what they say which is 'organically growing'
    Clearly a company growing very very quickly

    Its either a pro or a con I suppose but I was on performace management and decided to head back to the UK to go into Marketing. I enjoyed it but a lot is expected of you and to be honest, I didn't have the 'umph' that some of the people who joined did. There is people being promoted and once promoted are starting to earn good money, but not everyone makes it at all and they seem quite quick to move on those who don't.

    One person I started with has been promoted and loving it, another one has gone back to the UK, was working at a competitor where they weren't as 'on top of you' all the time. Though apparently it makes for a more boring environment.

    Would reccomend it to friends but only those who are pretty ambitious.

    Cons

    Not in the UK, unless you are promoted.
    Very hot in the summer!
    Not everyone makes it.
    Don't settle for people being lazy
    Its hard work.

    For me Recruitment is not easy, nor what people think it is. Is driven by people and although we got quite a lot of training about 'perception' and others. If you don't 'get' people then they probably cannot teach you to do.

    They do make you work quite hard, but its the same in any trainee recruitment position.

    Advice to Management

    Socialise more with the Junior people.
    Explain the earnings process better. People are earning good money but the more junior staff don't know how it works.
