Great Place for Ambitious Career Oriented IndividualsJan 11, 2016 - Business Development Manager in Los Angeles, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Outsource provides a growing and challenging work environment which allows individuals to access opportunities for personalng work environment which allows individuals to access opportunities for personalng work environment which allows individuals to access opportunities for personal development and career growth. To be perfectly candid, Outsource is not a fit for everyone. However, for those who are willing to put in the effort, hard work, and perseverance; there is ample opportunity for both monetary and career advancement. Outsource offers a chance to work with an amazing team of energetic and competitive individuals.
It's not a 8-5, which isn't a fit for everyone and what they are looking for. But for those that are willing to put in the extra time, it is well worth it and usually pays off exponentially. It is also a company that is still in rapid growth mode which means that individuals who can think on their feet, pivot quickly, problem solve and multi-task are going to enjoy the environment as opposed to those looking for a structured mundane environment.Continue reading

Useless...May 12, 2015 - Contractor in New York, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Outsource gives entry level people hope and makes job opportunities seem abundant which can be a good thing for politicians looking for false jobs statistics to help boost their re-elections. That's a heck of a Pro - for politicians!
Have you ever heard of Thumbtack? Thumbtack, Outsource, hey what's the difference? This seems to be a time of the "middle men". Can't find a job? Become a jobs poster or recruiter or another recruiting "company" and have someone else do the work. Yeah, that's the ticket!Continue reading

Horrible management results in a horrible experience.Nov 14, 2015 - Business Development ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Ironically there are some very good people working at Outsource, however, it seems that many have left in the previous months.
Many. Young and highly inexperienced management. Lots of behind the scenes bickering and back - stabbing. Short-term thinking mentality. Go for the quick dollar, guiding force. Very cutthroat. No loyalty. Much dishonesty.Continue reading

Highly dysfunctional with (most likely) the highest turnover rate in staffing.Mar 23, 2015 - Account ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Outsource's pay structure is pretty decent. You're paid base + commission weekly which is great. PTO/Sick time is accrued and management is flexible with it. Base pay is fairly good (but you need to get raises to get there). Commission structure is decent on the sales side. Training here is good. It's almost too extensive...but it's better that than not enough.
Where do I start? You're told that there's a good chance you won't be with Outsource in a few months and if you end up leaving, you sucked. They also want to hire people who don't have close family connections, aren't married, etc. (pretty much so you can be a robot for the company). Last but not least, the cherry on top, one of the executives tears people to shreds in front of others. More on upper management...Although they tell you that you can come to them at any time for help/questions, it's not entirely true. They go behind your back and talk to anyone they can to get info about what you said or why you said it instead of addressing you directly. I've had instances where managers don't care enough to take two minutes out of their day to assess a situation. Instead, they put a quick 'fix' on whatever the situation is because they don't want to deal with it. They also address turnover in the wrong manner. Instead of approaching current employees in a manner that they actually care about them, they are completely defensive. First of all, no one is going to tell upper management if they plan on quitting because the day you quit is your last day at Outsource regardless of you giving two-weeks notice. Most of upper management is less than professional. An executive who gets flustered during a phone call will just hang up on you because they doesn't want to deal with what is going on. Another manager will tell you you're not a true sales person and that you're going to have to work harder and longer than everyone else. There's also this new expectation that you NEED to give internal referrals, otherwise you're thought of as not doing your job. On to metrics...Outsource is a numbers based company as most sales positions are. But the metrics you're held to on a weekly basis are absurd and unrealistic for some (or most) markets. Outsource has this idea that all branches should operate on a LA/HQ level, yet that's nowhere near close to anything realistic. With that being said, people who are in markets that operate at a lower level than corporate yet are very successful and on goal (keep in mind many branches have only been around for a few years versus corporate which has been there since the company opened in the late 90's), are rarely recognized for any of their hard work...even though there are Account Managers starting completely new offices from the ground up, people who are successful to move from sourcing/recruiting to management (yet don't qualify for the annual rewards trip solely because they can't reach a metric set too high for the market). There are markets who are very successful yet not recognized for it. Opportunity for advancement- this has both it's pros and cons. Pros are that there is opportunity to move up. The cons are that it only happens when it's convenient for the executives. I personally had a situation where the RFM in my office resigned. I defaulted into the role (was happy to), but I was taking on all of those responsibilities as a recruiter for at least 2 months before I FINALLY got the 'promotion'. I first was told that I didn't deserve RFM because I hadn't averaged the weekly spread goal...even though I had been there for a couple years, was already doing all the RFM responsibilities, and I had hit goal multiple times (just didn't average it), along with met all other metrics. I was taken advantage of completely because management knew I was already doing the job. Yet when they have an idea or want to move someone up- it's done immediately. Let's address the payroll situation. There is just not enough payroll admins/specialists to operate at a maximum level. I don't fault ANY of them whatsoever because it's not their fault. There needs to be a bigger payroll team. But, because upper management hasn't done much about this, there are countless payroll issues both internally and externally. I can't tell you how many technicians called me angry because they didn't receive their pay even though it was in on time and approved. Internally, commission gets missed at times, there have been people who only get half their paycheck, etc. Overall, this is a staffing company that makes you feel like every little situation is life or death, yet when you personally have the sense of urgency they want you to have, it's not reciprocated. They pile the pressure on and micromanage you until you can't breathe. They give you a TON of responsibility, but lack taking responsibility for their own actions and mistakes. At the end of the day, they do not care about their employees. They solely care about making money...yet they'd probably have more money if they actually spend time focusing on retention instead of holding big training classes every month to back-fill for previous employees who got fed up with working for this less-than-ideal company.Continue reading
