    I worked at Recruit Express full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Supportive mentors. Dynamic and fast moving environment. Not your usual boring office job

    Cons

    Very fast paced, very steep learning curve and some managers can be quite sales Focussed. This is a sales job after all. Not an easy environment to survive or thrive in. Unless you don't mind getting shouted at and made to feel worthless.

    Advice to Management

    Times have changed. Move on.
