    I have been working at Real Staffing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture with hard working and fun to be around colleagues. You often spend more time with your coworkers than you do your friends/family and it is such a pleasure to work with such exceptional individuals. If you work hard you will move up in the company (and fast). Uncapped commission, can make a LOT of money. Managers cater towards what type of support you need (more hands-off, more hands-on, etc.). Lots of flexibility to pave own career path. Everyone is always willing to help, not cut-throat but very healthy and fun competition. No one is competing for the same market or jobs which definitely helps. I've been working here for 3 years and couldn't ask for a more life changing experience.

    Cons

    Used to do more social events together (happy hours, vegas, lunch clubs, etc.). We all miss this.

    Do not have casual dress every day

    Advice to Management

    Be careful about changing the culture too much, we don't want to fix something that isn't broken.

    Pros

    It's a job where you can make commission.

    Cons

    Major bull pen atmosphere where you are made to call companies that detest you for your used car sales mentality.

  3. "Ruthless and unprofessional"

    I worked at Real Staffing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture is fun and the people are nice
    Training is strong for people with no sales experience
    Environment suits a grad who wants to be "whipped" into shape
    They have a female leadership initiative I have heard is strong

    Cons

    Unclear direction and leadership from management
    High levels of staff turnover, particularly at the senior-leadership level meaning less competent and more junior managers run the sales team
    Staff hook up with staff consistently, management does nothing as they're often involved
    Ruthless around performance / mistakes
    People do not earn close to what they tell you in the interview
    I was also asked by a number of supervisors to post a positive Glassdoor review in the relatively short time I was there so I'm sure many of the better ones are fake!

    Advice to Management

    Be less ruthless and give people more of chance. People make mistakes, people take a while to find their grove. Nurture that and don't dismiss it.
    Put in place a "no fraternization" policy and stick to it. Particularly at the management level. It's distasteful working for managers who sleep around the office.
    Be honest about what's realistic to earn from the get go. Even if it sounds less attractive off the bat, it will have a more positive impact in the long run.
