I have been working at Culver Personnel Services

Pros

Great place to gain invaluable professional experience that will make you a very valuable commodity, fun environment, hands on management, fast job progression, ability to make amazing networking connections, full company paid benefits are quality, long term career potential, ability to "run your own desk," you can make a lot of money, some really cool people, unlimited overtime, can make decent money (takes 3 years,) they are going to grow ALOT in the next 3 years.

Cons

They hire too many unprofessional, unreliable 21 year olds, the base salary is very low, a lot of required hours, the commission structure its poorly designed and you don't make decent money until your third year, some managers have NO business sense, recruiting in general is a very hard and stressful job, the only way to make 6 figures is to be a managing director.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

people just out of college don't stick around, for god's sake, make the base salary at least $40k, increase your commission structure (at least make it not tiered - this encourages people to "sit" on sales/cash in,) if someone is not good at their job don't be afraid to make them step down, make it possible for senior sales people to make as much or more as managers, don't require people to work 9 hours - the worthwhile hard-workers will do it anyway and the rest will weed themselves out, do more to reward your best employees/investments and you'll stop losing them, install some performance-based base increases (just making more commission isn't everything,) adapt faster to new technology/industry/business shifts.

    Pros

    The only pro I can say about working for Culver is that if you are 22, fresh out of college, and still live with the parents, it's a great job to knock you down and show you what it's like in the real world.

    Cons

    Where to start... from as early as the interview stage that is where the lies begin. A day in the life of a Culver Recruiter is having to be in the office by 7am and spending your entire day until about 5pm or later being slave driven to Cold Call all day. You are extremely micro managed even though you are told that you own your desk. Most of the offices are ran by managers that are money hungry recruiters and can't lead and train a team because they are too busy hustling themselves hoping that their team will perform so that they get their cut. Descent projects are given to the favorites, lack luster recruiters are not given additional training or constructive criticism.. just nothing to work until they are driven to quit. The culture is about as unprofessional as you can get, creating an unhealthy environment. Turnover is Extremely high, the company used to have 22 offices and 200 recruiters, currently there are 5 left left with as little as 4 people working in each. The pay structure is the biggest joke of it all. You are paid 13 bucks an hour to do aggressive sales and good luck on ever seeing a commission check!
