    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is truly an exciting, vibrant and great company to work for. The atmosphere is one of the best I have ever worked at and it really allows me to succeed and reach my full potential. FRG also understands that its employees are not automatons that they expect to be fully experienced recruitment experts they can abuse. I found it quite hard to adjust to the work hours to begin with in the first couple of weeks...

    Cons

    The hours are long but that's what you need to put in if you want to succeed and your fellow workers are in the same boat to you so you slug it out together. Pay can be low compared to other Recruitment companies but the facilities and market knowledge this company has gives you a far better chance to make commission.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great support and knowledge you gives us new recruits!! Its really appreciated.

    I have been working at Frank Recruitment Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Hard work results in the rewards that you deserve. Rewards for getting your first deal, being a top performer or just going above an beyond - you'll find your hard work will never go unnoticed. There's an exciting company culture that allows you to have fun, while working towards your targets. Very sociable company with monthly social events and you'll find your team members become some of your closet friends. The...

    Cons

    If you are looking for a 9-5 job then this is absolutely not the job for you! There are definitely long hours but the reward and recognition that you receive for putting in that extra effort, is completely worth it. The job is very target driven which can be a con for people who don't enjoy targets - however they are very manageable and you are supported by your team and team leader to try and hit those targets.

    Advice to Management

    With the company growing so rapidly, there are definitely some RCs, SRCs and TLs that are stretched trying to support any new TRCs and manage their own workload.

      Spend more personal time with the new employee to explain his tasks and to help him to understand the technologies he will work on.
