    I have been working at Certus Recruitment Group full-time

    Pros

    I began my inspirational journey at Certus only recently however since then my growth I feel has been astronomical. I entered as young cub who was determined to enter the corporate world and succeed as ultimately a top businessman. I can now say from only a few intense months at the hub of sales recruitment I've developed into a lion. The way the company nurture their graduates and allow the perfect balance on hard work...

    Cons

    A tight ship is run although personally I feel that suits the employees. I would also mention that the hours are not flexible and the office isn't open 24 hrs.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly some more private one to one time to discuss any issues regarding work. Also motivating the employees with a few encouraging words on the hour to keep productivity at a high level.

    "The most awful place I've ever worked!!!"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Certus Recruitment Group full-time

      Pros

      Sometimes managers and directors stop being bullies and let you breathe from time to time.

      Cons

      I worked at Certus Sales as a graduate recruiter and I can honestly say I have never been more miserable in my entire life. The two recruitment managers working there were absolute bullies, who went out of their way to belittle and patronise new recruits at every opportunity. Managers were also lazy, were reluctant to conduct second interviews on candidates, even if they were really strong, and had to be chased every...

      I worked at Certus Recruitment Group full-time

      Pros

      Clearly a successful recruitment company

      Cons

      Bullied by senior staff (even your own managers) eg, taking away your chair ALL DAY Directors aren't leaders - they are bosses Other staff members wouldn't think twice about stabbing you in the back Long working hours (10 hours) Doesn't care about customers or employees Managers monitor all your emails, websites you visit and listen to the calls you make

      Advice to Management

      Be the opposite to what you currently are

      Clearly, we are disappointed your experience of Certus was so poor you have felt the need to be creative in your review. I can't think of a time in our history where someone's chair was taken from them. With regard to the working hours, yes, our most successful consultants do work ...

          Disapproves of CEO

          I have been working at Certus Recruitment Group

          Pros

          Good money to be earned if you obey the leadership and don't mind being bullied from day one.

          Cons

          Extremely arrogant CEO that is only interested in making money and not in the well being of his staff. Very much a boiler room environment that breeds greed and envy of your more successful colleagues.

          Advice to Management

          Go on an extensive 'Anger Management' course!!
