    I worked at Olsa Resources full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good atmosphere, nice co-workers. One office for all the workers. The CEO is just upstairs.

    Cons

    small office, gossip-y, not a whole lot of direction (even general)

    I worked at Olsa Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flex time and Friday morning coffee

    Cons

    Management is terrible and although you have the potential to make large bonuses the salary is so low that at the end of the day it doesn't make much of a difference. During your first 3 months everything seems great but as you will see turnover is high for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    If it is expected to be working 50+ hours a week the salary should not be as low as $32,000.

    I worked at Olsa Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Probably the best part of working here is the flexible schedule. You are told that if you're meeting your goals, you can work the hours you like. Generally, they want you to come in between 6-9am and leave between 3-6pm. However, they will monitor your time and use it against you if you aren't putting in enough hours to make them happy. They will not care if you put in additional time, as that is expected of you.

    Cons

    The management is terrible. The owner does not usually like to converse with workers. The manager talks down to you and gives constant "pep-talks" and chalkboard presentations that make you feel like you're in kindergarten. There is also no regard for the contract workers you recruit. If there is the slightest issue with them (even if they are the ones making the complaint) you have to fire them. They have trouble handling general office administration and making payroll consistently. This has resulted in numerous complaints and even lawsuits.

    The base salary is not great and it takes a huge number of employees on your books before you come close to making a bonus. If you aren't hitting your numbers you will be let go. You are constantly reminded by management that you are expendable and could lose your job at any moment. They will make changes to the office or business practices without telling employees anything. All this results in a high turnover rate for recruiters, which is not the way to run a staffing agency.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Provide them with information, training, and a decent salary. If there is an issue with payroll or anything else, get it handled promptly and professionally. Take employee feedback seriously rather than acting offended. This is a workplace, act like professionals.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Excellent Management, they actually care about your success and are there to help you achieve your goals.

    Cons

    It depends on your life style, compensation could be a little low. But a great job for a newly graduate seeking a career in recruitment or human resource.

    Advice to Management

    Build a strong relationship with ALL your employees and not only one. And when they feel trusted and belong, the targeted quotas will take care of themselves.

    I worked at Olsa Resources as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Polite, accommodated my schedule, got me into a position ahead of original schedule.

    Cons

    Rushed to have me employed, positioned me in a job that I was unqualified for, dumped and abandoned me when my contract was terminated, contacted me about losing my job just hour before I was scheduled to work. Failed to help follow-up of returning personal items left at job site (never recovered.)

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive of those resources you hire.
