I have been working at Global Employment Solutions as a contractor for more than 3 years

Pros

Decent rate and they offer a form of health insurance.

Cons

I continued to work at an hourly with no bonus. Health insurance is subpar.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be nice to have the opportunity to be hired fulltime.

    I worked at Global Employment Solutions

    Pros

    Very helpful, agent was great at sending out your resumes to only companies you would want to work with. Very good follow up attention as well.

    Cons

    They will only contact you or place you in positions if you can benefit the company somehow, which makes sense, it is a business.

    Just an OK place to work, more hype, peanuts pay, no career movement in Chicago.

    I worked at Global Employment Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, if they stick around; Somewhat recognizable name in Chicago metro area. Work/life balance is good but for the wrong reasons- most people run out the door at 5pm, not because of the benefits, or any alternative work schedules which they do not offer.

    I left on my own to pursue similar opportunities on the corporate side to work with more professional people, for more stimulating work, more money, less pressure, .

    Cons

    They pay peanuts, expect to make very little the first few years. You need to get job orders or you won't make money. Upper management will push you to fill their job orders so they get paid the 6 figures, while you go home with annual compensation around 40-50k. Turn over is so high, it seems ridiculous. Most people can't make it there, this is true of the search industry however. There was a running joke in the office (although not funny), people would take the phone list and cross off those who left, after a while the list got so long it was a lot of work to keep track of everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better training, allow use of internet sourcing tools, bring recruiting methods up to the 21st century, embrace technology, offer better mentoring.
