As an internal employee, we help so many people. They set a clear path of success and have very livable Guiding Values. We have a Mission, Vision, and Values that we meet everyday. There is no limit to the amount of bonuses you can make. We have an excellent work/life balance (9/80 work schedule) and are very flexible even beyond that.
Training is designed for people familiar with the industry. You have to self-manage your time or you will be overwhelmed. There is a lot of admin that you have to do. If you think you can get around it, you will be left behind!

This is definitely the best place I've ever worked. Management truly cares about the people who work here personally and professionally. Business decisions are often guided by what would be best for their employees instead of what is most profitable- this is a large company that is run like a family business . Roth is a company that holds its self accountable to its values- a great example of that is work/life balance. Too often recruiters end up working 50-60 hours/week regularly. At Roth, Business Solutions Specialists and Managers are paid hourly- if we work more than 40 hours a week we get paid overtime! The result is that we don't work more than 40 hours a week. Add that to the 9/80 work schedule that gives us 26 three day weekends each year- the work/life balance is real! If you like money (and who doesn't) base salaries are above average for the industry and bonus plans are very generous. It's easy to make a lot of money at this company.
No job is perfect- especially in the recruiting world. There are always ups and downs when connecting candidates and clients. Sales goals are set high but are very achievable.1

Tremendous corporate culture. The Executive Management team takes the time to listen to our concerns and does a great job taking our suggestions and implementing them to improve processes and practices. The company truly cares about its co-workers, I have seen countless examples of Roth Staffing going above and beyond to assist with an employee who was struggling with something either on a personal or professional level. Salary and compensation are above the levels of our competitors and the training is stronger than at other companies I've been with. They offer flexible hours and put a strong emphasis on work/life balance
The benefits could be a bit more comprehensive and affordable.

The company genuinely cares about employees and there is a good work life balance here
The company is sacrificing their relational culture for the sake of progressing in the market and it is making it feel like every other staffing firm. New managers are bulldozing over existing work and trying to make Roth their own version of recruiting/sales instead of trying to understand the individual teams and how they operate. This use to be an exciting company to work for and now coming to work is nothing but stressful and anxiety producing.

This is a company that really does care, not only about it's clients but also about it's ambassadors and coworkers. The company culture is what brought me to Roth Staffing and what keeps me working here! Work life balance is very important and a reality working with Roth. They also have some of the best tools in the industry! I really do love working for this organization.
There have not always been the best onboarding tools to set new hires up for success. The company intranet is not the most user friendly.

Good work/life balance- overtime is not encouraged Decent pay and commission structure I really liked most of the people I worked with at my branch I like the concept of the company values just wish it was taken more seriously at the branch level.
I feel like there is a disconnect between the branches and corporate. And since upper management does not come visit but possibly twice a year. They really don't know how the branch is being ran behind closed doors. There is no continuing education- you are kind of thrown in the water and it's up to you if you want to swim or drown. It's a very stressful job with lots of moving parts. And if you do not meet their metrics they will very quickly get rid of you. The only way to move up the ladder is to become a manager.2Roth Staffing Response8y
There is nothing more we would like than to have you reach out to your next level manager so that we can better equip your branch office to be aligned with the overall culture of the company. Never should a coworker feel that fear tactics are being used. The majority of coworkers in our organization have shared that they do not feel micromanaged or pressured with fear and we certainly want you to feel that way as well. In terms of education, we hope you'll notice a big change as we roll out a multitude of development opportunities and continuous training for all roles (not just new coworkers, not just managers) in 2017. Your comments only make us want to be even better and seek out locations where some coworkers may not be experiencing what the majority of coworkers are celebrating. We appreciate your review very much.

-Strong compensation potential if you can last more than 18 months, however 80% of people don't make it that long. - Good opportunity for individuals early in their career who have some interest in sales/recruiting who are very compliant, willing to listen/learn and follow a narrow path. -The rampant turnover can become opportunity if you are willing to be opportunistic and fight to takeover new accounts in the wake of departures -Opportunity to work for a company that has great intentions for making life better in a genuine but that often falls short in execution -Ability to work in a highly competitive industry with both slow and fast sales cycle -Opportunity to hone sales skills on your own but limited opportunity to be challenged or grow in sales technique -Nice 9/80 schedule (every other Friday off) but no work from home options for the vast majority of staff -Work life balance is encouraged but difficult to maintain in a busy office while you are trying to grow your book of business
-Extensive turnover at the branch level makes it difficult to feel like you are a part of a strong team for more than 6 months, ALL roles BSM, TAS, BSS, are constantly cycling in and out. -Very conservative, uptight culture that doesn't treat employee like adults, extremely limited opportunity to work from home, attend networking events, professional conferences, that aren't company endorsed. -Marketing team is constantly running new initiatives that feel more like propaganda campaigns than anything else -Not a great place for opinionated, independent, big picture thinkers, if you are, you will either be forced out or constantly have to bite your tongue. -The company isn't great at setting up their managers for success, tenure/loyality is rewarded above all else, they overload management so the core duties get ignored and pet projects crowd out what should be the mission/main goal -If you stay long enough you will feel pulled between a great income and friends who no longer work at the company who HATE the company because virtually nobody leaves Roth Staffing on positive terms or even amicably.11Roth Staffing Response7y
Hi, this is Adam Roth, CEO, and I want to personally invite you to email me at email@example.com (or call into corporate) so that we can discuss your insights further. I know that this is asking a lot and I will understand if I do not hear from you, but if you’re open to it, I would genuinely enjoy discussing your perspective further. Your review is well thought-out and well written, and feedback like yours will help us become an even better place to work. But I would like to be able to ask you some questions about the suggestions you propose. The turnover you have seen is not representative for what is typically seen in our offices and I can certainly understand how that can impact your engagement. Thank you for taking the time to fully articulate what you have experienced in your branch office – I sincerely hope to hear from you soon.
