Pros: after only 6 months of employment - you were entitled to a week's vacation
Cons: the recruiting coordinator position was not well defined --- constantly changing quotas to meet
I loved my position as Office Coordinator, each day was different...I filled in for their Office Coordinator, who was on maternity leave --- we moved the office - I was able to better organize the new space, to make the office operations run much smoother, performed an ISO Audit, greeted applicants and assisted them with the orientation process, followed – more... up with applicant's to ensure the entire process was completed and all documents were on file. Provided excellent customer service, ensured the front office was clean, and processed payroll for over 100 temp. associates ----- I served as their Office Manager. I called on resumes for job recruitment and scheduled applicant interviews. Provided admin. support to 8 Recruiters. It was a very busy office and the position didn't pay near what I had been making as an Executive Assistant --- I was eager to take a training position as their Recruiting Coordinator to learn recruitment and then promote to a Staffing Associate, where I would be eligible to earn commission.
Recruiting for a staffing agency was fast paced, and cut throat-- high volume phones, learning how to source "workable" candidates - via resumes, filling job orders, interviewing, providing excellent customer service, and serving as a back up to the Office Coordinator...I worked in an open area with 8 women, who were also on the phones, interviewing applicants, &/or pounding applicant's data into office automation, they felt the louder, and the faster you could talk, the better you were at recruiting ------ I love high energy; but, I couldn't hear myself think ----their were also to many uncontrollable variables, making my recruiting efforts pointless --- applicants would not show up to assignments, or scheduled job interviews, or accept positions after they were offered... leaving me unable to meet my placement quotas. The recruiting position I accepted was new and expectations were not well defined. I really enjoyed helping people find work, performing applicant resume proof reading, and interview coaching to ensure candidates were highly marketable in this competitive job market..... – less
