    I have been working at Life Search Technologies

    Pros

    They are local and apparently have good sales people.

    Cons

    The company is untrustworthy and has a fee structure that is above industry standards/unreasonable. Lifesearch Technology placed me with a company. They charged the company where I was placed over twice what I was getting paid hourly. I really like the place where I am working and they expressed an interest in bringing me in full time as an employee, but then Life Search Technology tried to charge the company another...

    Pros

    I have worked for LST for 2 years and my experience has been nothing short of amazing. The management team is great, they stand by you from day one and help every step of the way. The owner is very involved, always meeting with the recruiters and offering advice as needed. The office is like a family - everyone is always rooting for each other to succeed -There are many incentives that help everyone to stay motivated...

    I cannot think of any cons to working at LST! It is a great place to be and would recommend it to anyone looking for an inside sales position!

    Advice to Management

    Keep rooting us on! It is your energy and positivity that keeps us working towards ringing that bell!

    I have been working at Life Search Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Life Search Technologies has been nothing but a positive experience for me. This was my first job out of college. As any new grad knows there are not many employers who are willing to take a risk on you. Life Search provided me with the support and guidance to become a top performer. Everyone works hard and you need to work hard to be successful but it is not a cut throat environment like most recruiting agencies. Everyone...

    Cons

    -During the winter you need to wear a tank top sometimes in the office because of the hear and then in the summer you have to have a sweater on hand because the building can be so cold

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! You provide the support and guidance for all your employees to be successful! I have not had better managers than the ones at Life Search and I don't think I ever will.

    I have been working at Life Search Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Strong support from management – yet they are flexible enough to let you be independent and to run your desk the way that works best for you. Management is very flexible. Understands and has empathy towards personal situations Great company culture – friendly, open, team oriented, and collaborative Opportunity to make a lot of money

    Cons

    Can’t think of any thing bad to say about this company. It really is a GREAT place to work if you like a small company that provides the support of a big firm.

    Advice to Management

    We love half day Fridays when we are above our goal, so more promotions like that would be great. Keep doing what you’re doing. Life Search is a great place to work.

    I worked at Life Search Technologies

    Pros

    -Easy work life balance, 830 - 5. This is huge as most recruiting firms require 10-12 hour days to see a profit. -Fantastic team. I learned a lot about the recruiting business, team building, candidate and hiring manager interactions, etc in just 1 year. -Environment is extremely friendly, only about a 12 person company, so you're going to be best buds with the bosses. -Resources for a recruiter to succeed are given....

    Cons

    Phone time and sourcing time - which is expected in agency recruiting Fighting the draw can be bleak

    Pros

    Nice View Small office Learn helpful recruiting tactics

    Cons

    -No diversity -Unprofessional, close-minded coworkers (fmostly) -Lacking leadership (vision, consistency, hard work ...golfs more than works) -Management will lie to your face, and stab you in the back, and will project worries onto you even though the company does well. -Office is run like a 1950's manufacturing company. Strict time frames for lunch/arrival departure. No work from home option... unless you are a...

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your people (bonuses, gifts, outings, team building events, lunches), be consistent, don't lie to your employees, learn to address frustrating employees without yelling or cussing, listen to the judgement of people who have your best interest. Lead by example.

    - High earning potential - Experienced leadership - Cohesive team atmosphere

    Cons

    - Slight risk/lack of stability is present as you are paid on a draw (Not a risk, but rather a part of the business: must make a lot of calls per day)

    Advice to Management

    - A paid gym membership would be nice. - New modernized recruiting software (iCIMS, BambooHR, Hyrell)

    I am a current employee of Life Search Technologies and am extremely happy working for this organization.

    Cons

    The recruiting industry is tough. You have to make a tone of calls and deal with a lot of rejection. It can take some time to build your reputation in the industry, but with hard work and the support of Life Search Technologies behind you, you WILL be successful and have a great work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for fostering a strong team environment, which is a refreshing change from many other recruiting atmospheres.

    I worked at Life Search Technologies

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my fellow employees. Everyone had there own unique personalities and were not afraid to share it. My direct manager was fantastic and we were on the same page the entire time.

    Cons

    The company didn't want to progress or change for the better. It favored employees who had been there for awhile and there was no upside for anyone with experience and was new. It was run like a mom and pop shop with tedious bureaucracy from a very small firm.
