    I worked at Selby Jennings full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The commission is very good at Selby with 15, 20 or 25% of a deal size and these rise by 5% if you hit certain targets. Realistically you can double your base salary by having a half decent year (Base is £18-20k).

    This is also on an individual basis so you are accountable for your own performance on not relying on others before you can get commission, which often happens at other recruiters.

    The social life around work on Thursday and bi-monthly Lunch Clubs on a bi-annual basis are also available for top performers and are enjoyable to go on.

    Cons

    Very target driven right down to calls per day, interviews, deals etc. although that said this is consistent with any recruitment company.

    Hours are significantly longer than contracted (working 8-7 rather than contracted hours of 8:30-6:30). Furthermore, unpaid overtime is always expected regardless of what you're achieving (usually an extra 1-2 hours a day on average).

    Promotions are at a set level of business done in a financial year. However, you effectively do the same job as before but just on slightly increased commission rates and you may get a junior to manage. However, this person often isn't interviewed by you and so mismatches often occur.

    Holiday isn't an option (I had circa 8 days in 2 years) and any that is approved is subject to your performance. This is something you have to realistically understand before working here.

    The basic salary isn't enough to live in London other than rent and food. Therefore if you want to go to the social events, you need to ensure you're regularly performing. Not so much a negative as it motivates you to work hard but worth highlighting to anyone considering a job at Selby.

    Staff turnover is extremely high (one year I was there they hired 62 new people in a year but also fired 58). Expect the pressure to be on all the time once you've completed your probationary period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investment in talent for the long term and be consistent with targets/incentives that are set. It can also be highly de-motivating to hear that you're not doing well but offer no new ideas on why this may be happening other than your own laziness.

    It would also be worth trying to understand the issues that de-motivated employees are having and this way, it would help to turns things around more effectively for the current employee, saving significant investment in new staff that have to come in and learn a new market.
