    I worked at Fawkes & Reece full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I joined the business and it was my first sales job and job in recruitment. I found it too hard and didn’t pass probation. They was fair with me, but I would have liked to have stayed for longer. The Director even sent me an email once I left, which was nice as he didn’t have to. They do have high expectations and I do think it is a great place to work. I wanted to stay I am not bitter as they were right about what they said and I didn’t hit targets so it is what it is. There are many successful people in the company and loads of people gave me support and tried to help, but I perhaps needed to have more experience before joining. That said I no longer want to work in sales so perhaps it was for the best. Good vibe, happy place to work, you know you have to make placements, there is reward and I enjoyed sales week. Even though it was madness, but everyone enjoys it and I liked being in that environment.

    Cons

    Canvassing is tough when you aren’t confident, I also couldn’t grasp head hunting so I found getting new candidates v difficult. If you are confident on the phone then you will be fine
