    Current Employee - Senior Recruitment Consultant in Sydney

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Randstad full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salary, fantastic commission structure and great perks (mobile phone, brand new laptop, ability to work from home, flexible work hours when needed and additional training/courses for high achievers)

    Cons

    Poor management - many are promoted for the wrong reasons and don't have the skill set to manage a team. High expectations - you have to achieve a substantial amount in comparison to other recruitment companies in order to qualify for specific high achieving clubs.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your teams desks and industry and don't do a 'one size fits all' approach as it doesn't work!
