I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time (More than 8 years)
FRG is one of the only opportunities in the world where someone may join with absolutely no previous Sales/Recruitment experience and make a wildly successful career for themselves. The company teaches you the skill set and organization skills necessary to succeed while trusting you to run your own book of business.
Personally, I have always enjoyed working for the company and plan on continuing my journey due to the company culture, growth and financial incentive.
In my career I have traveled on incentive trips to amazing locations and stayed at hotels I would have never dreamed possible. In addition, I have been able to take similar trips myself as I can afford to take a number of two-week vacations around the world due to the generous 6 total weeks of PTO after 2 years of service, and income that stands to be made. Lastly, I have traveled for business numerous times and met with other incredible business oriented professionals.
Overall, there is no other company where you can start at the ground level and work your way into Senior Leadership while having the time of your life along the way. The friends and network connections you will make are incredible, along with the 5-figure paychecks that can be made monthly. Also, you get to learn technology along the way which will remain the center point of culture and business for decades to come.
Recruitment is not HR or Talent Acquisition. Yes, certain responsibilities and job functions are similar, however at the end of the day it is Sales. Inherently that means there is rejection and not everyone will always want to work with you. If you know this going into it, it's not a problem whatsoever but rather a fun and educational way of figuring out how to highlight the value you provide.
Additionally, as the professionals and hiring managers that we work with have jobs and lives of their own, at times you need to take calls outside of the ordinary work hours. As a result of this, and also potentially doing market research and/or setting yourself up for success the next day, 50-60 hour work weeks can be normal.
What I have always remind myself is that nothing great comes easy in life. The amount of money you can make and career progression available to you have a small trade off which is slightly longer work weeks and sometimes catching people not in their best moment.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing. Those who want to succeed and take full advantage of this opportunity are fully backing the direction of the company.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Frank Recruitment Group (Scottsdale, AZ (US)) in February 2019.
I was reached out to via Linked-In and had a phone screening set up. I was told they only want money-motivated individuals and if I wanted to help people (place candidates to careers and get fulfillment in bettering their situation) then I should join the Peace Corps and I wouldn’t be a good fit. Does not align with the recruitment videos they sent me on culture and atmosphere.
