    I have been working at RecruitMilitary full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This is one of those rare gems - The perfect place to work! A small company doing BIG things every day to make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families across the nation.
    This company practices what it preaches - most of the management team and full-time employees are veterans - which brings great leadership, drive, and integrity to all levels of the company. And it is true...RecruitMilitary has high standards for its employees - the company's culture is one that values high performance, initiative, and drive - it is greatly motivating and rewarding to work in such a positive and energetic environment with people that are passionate about what they do and want to do it well. With less than 50 employees, RecruitMilitary's position as the nation’s leading company in the niche means every employee works hard and efficiently to do their part, but that is well-balanced with a very family-friendly culture (offering full-time flexibility and part-time job options) and a generous benefit package. This small company feels like a big family - if you are lucky enough to work here - you'll know what I mean.

    Cons

    Hard to think of one ....but i would say with the rapid growth of the company and the expansion of each department forcing the utilization of a second building, that sometimes it is harder for everyone to have an instant handle on what is going on "in the other building". While just across the parking lot, and within 20 paces, communication between departments has become even more critical to keep everyone informed.

    Advice to Management

    This company is run by a President/CEO with great integrity and approachability – he has a genuine passion for the mission and values all the work and ideas from employees toward accomplishing that mission. There is great energy and leadership in all departments – exciting times as the company launches forward.

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

    Pros

    Some great co-workers with a positive attitude
    No experience necessary for entry level positions
    Simple and easy data processing procedures
    Great IT support from a limited IT department
    Great marketing team with limited resources

    Cons

    Sales team is very difficult to work with
    Onboard training is non-existent
    Compensation/benefits are not comparable to other positions
    The only real culture is "Sales, Sales, Sales"
    C-level executives utilize customer's desire to hire veterans/military, but are only concerned with returns, not veteran employment
    Possible illegal monitoring of personal networks

    Advice to Management

    Develop a real culture so your retention goes up
    Invest in your support staff's education and attributes
    Look at your military/veteran job seekers as people, not a sales gimmick

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to "help" veterans gain employment. You get the feel good fealing of helping those who have served.

    Cons

    Company not into it to help veterans. They are completely revenue driven. Nobody is concerened with the actual "hiring" of veterans as long as recuritmilitary looks good. Double check the numbers they promote!

    Advice to Management

    Useless, they won't listen anyway. There is no progressive approach to developing the "product" except for raising the price, then discounting. Stop inflating numbers.

    I worked at RecruitMilitary full-time

    Pros

    Military centric, vet owned/operated. Open door communication policy. Great team.

    Cons

    No training at all! The military spends thousands of dollars making us 'war ready' and 'prepared' yet at a vet owned company there is no training for the sales staff?? It's a smile and dial environment. No designated territories, leads or contacts. Total free-for-all where the tenured sales keep all the big players/accounts leaving the newer sales to scratch at nothing hoping to find a sale or client to call into. Tenured sales staff stay, newer sales get fired after only a few short months.

    Advice to Management

    Train, train train. Don't be afraid to invest time into training the team. There's more ROI and benefit in the long run than not.

    Pros

    Nice people, great mission, understanding leadership team.

    Cons

    Like any company, occasionally we get a bad apple. The great thing is that we're still small enough to spot bad apples pretty quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on course!! Keep doing all the great things that make us special.


  7. "A Great Company, and an Extremely Rewarding Employment Experience"

    I worked at RecruitMilitary full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    RecruitMilitary is a great company - it has a meaningful mission, a fantastic management team, a smart model, and a vast market for further growth. The management team is constantly improving its model and retooling its go-to-market strategy based on marketplace dynamics.

    Like every great company, RecruitMilitary has high standards for its employees. The culture is one that rewards high performance, drive, and initiative. If you have high personal standards and are looking for an environment that offers fulfillment based on meeting goals, high achievement, and conquering obstacles, then this is the place to work. If you require hand holding, then this will not be the right culture for you.

    Cons

    The company has none. The niche has one - and that is an entitlement standard. While every veteran deserves gratitude for service and sacrifice, not every veteran is entitled to employment rewards beyond their contribution. The military has some of the highest performing individuals in the world, yet it also has some marginal performers, and those marginal performers should not be handed richly rewarding civilian employment opportunities purely based on their veteran status.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course! You are doing important work, and you are doing an outstanding job.

    Pros

    I expected most companies that Recruit Military contacts to attend it's job fairs and post job openings on it's website to be receptive and respectful and they are. Very niche company that gets good results.

    Cons

    I wish Recruit Military would provide more initial training but if you know what you are doing and can be an independent thinker you can do well.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a little more training before you put people on the phone to contact employers. Overall though, this is a company that's got it going on!

    Pros

    The company truly exists to help veterans find jobs. We are private, not funded by any government handouts, and completely free to veterans.

    Cons

    Like any small business, there are always rough edges. We are growing rapidly, trying out business strategies, and people who can't think for themselves will struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the mission, and continue to develop the team and processes for greater improvement. You are doing a great thing for America's veterans.

    Pros

    Great mission for the company. Helping Military Veterans gain employment is a noble cause.

    Cons

    Zero product training. This is basically a 'dial-n-smile' sales organization. Was put on the phones first day after about half an hour of training. Two more days like this then I was expected to start meeting quota. No training at all on peripheral products and services.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people, make them feel like they are appreciated and you are interested in their professional development.

    If you enjoy working for and with some of the best in this niche, this is an awesome experience.

    Cons

    Organize and prioritize your efforts well since there are so many employers interested in hiring veterans.
