      Pros

      The company offers loads of incentives and benefits on top of an amazing commission scheme. All managers and leaders are hands-on and there for training and general support.

      Cons

      Long hours but it makes it worth it with the amount of money you can earn.

      Pros

      Training and SOME of the people

      Cons

      CEO has the personality of a doorknob. Chairman doesnt leave his office unless its to go to the bank to count his cash. They do not care one bit about their people, all they care about is churning through as many people as possible, ripping off their clients and then moving onto the next.

      Pros

      There is a clear training structure when you start.

      Cons

      - They email phone times round twice a day to the whole office - naming and shaming people that haven't been on the phone long enough - They work with slow, unreliable clients because they are desperate for jobs - They have strict KPI's - They encourage you to mass email clients and candidates which constantly causes complaints - The old school ways of working never seem to change - The staff turnover is through the roof - The CEO doesn't try to solve issues, he just sends aggressive emails taking out his anger on people - They monitor EVERYTHING you do on your laptop - it's beyond unacceptable The list goes on...

      Pros

      The office had a family feel and I was made to feel welcome no matter what office I went to. Premier provide great incentives and benefits which keeps motivation high.

      Cons

      Long hours and hard work. Recruitment was very different to my previous experience so KPIs were new to me.

      Pros

      Struggling to think of any…

      Cons

      Micromanagement is the only word I can use to describe their style. Managers will listen in on your calls daily and access your inbox to check your emails. Inappropriate comments were made towards female consultants on a daily basis, even by managers. Extremely long hours with no work life balance. You are expected to work outside of your working hours, through your lunch break and are looked down upon if you don’t. If you are unwell you are made to feel bad taking time off and you feel awkward even booking holiday. They also ask their staff to write positive reviews as they monitor this site as well as google.
