Old School Recruitment
Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 1, 2016
Management has an incredibly old-school approach to recruitment.
People are micro-managed, encouraged to manipulate clients, and are belittled for having low call times.

The company has not found it's way into the 21st century yet.
They are the only downtown employer I know of that does not pay for parking. People are reprimanded for leaving a minute before 12:00 for lunch or for coming in a minute after 1:00 from lunch. They refuse to update outdated computer systems which affect productivity (ex: they haven't updated from Word 2002).

The pay is 30k for new recruiters, and even though they insist that commission will allow you to double your take home, it's just not true. There are a very small handful of people in the office who make the majority of the money, and they have their market corned off. Everyone else makes peanuts because they are limited by the market they work.

It's just not worth your time.

They are advertising for non union members only I'm pretty sure thats illegal. How can they possibly get away with this?!!
It sounded like a decent job until I read that requirement.

Amateurs
CEO (Former Employee), North PoleMarch 12, 2015
Pros: kids
Cons: kids
A company staffed by a bunch of expedient teenagers who may have barely passed year 11 with one target in mind: to waste your time with irrelevant, non existent and meaningless job opportunities.

How they stay afloat is truly a miracle. If only HO back in the UK realised what a bunch of dickheads they have on their payroll. Give them a wide birth. They don't always have the jobs they claim they do.
