Overall Good Experience
Associate Account Manager (Current Employee), Enfield, CTMay 18, 2015
It is a recruiting firm that works across the nation.The business model is great the co workers are even better. The hardest part was the actually grind of the job and with Barton expanding everything in the market seems to be dried up.

Must be determined to stay
Account Manager (Former Employee), USMay 11, 2015
The only way to justify the pay and long hours is to really want to build a career with Barton. There is a lack of professionalism, but it relieves the stress placed on you to carve out a career in an over-saturated market.

would not recommend
Account Development Manager (Former Employee), Keene, NHMarch 26, 2015
I would not recommend this job to anyone except entry level sales candidates. The upside of the company is extensive training. The downsides are many.

Company is very cut throat, boiler room environment. Unprofessional activities is allowed in the office.
Account Executive (Former Employee), Peabody, MAFebruary 19, 2015
You are expected to work 10 hours/day, plus "willingly" working over time. Must maintain their expected phone time and daily dials. Manager plays favoritism towards to female employees. Most enjoyable part of the job are paid bagel Wednesdays and leftovers from management meetings.

Dont trust management
Associate Account Development Manager (Former Employee), Austin, TXFebruary 6, 2015
No work/life balance working 7am-5pm.
Production is all about the number and making 100+ (cold) calls a day.
It is turn and burn; the turnover at Barton is outrageous.
No job security unless you suck up to management.

Amazing workplace with interesting people
Fulfillment Specialist (Current Employee), Keene, NHDecember 1, 2014
Pros: phone job, great incentives, 401k, health insurance, great co-workers
Cons: sitting down all day
The pay is based entirely on how hard you work. Great training abilities and you hear some amazing stories from the Medical Professionals that you work with. Essentially you make friends over the phone and get paid for the work.

It's not that great
Account Manager/Customer Service (Former Employee), Peabody MAOctober 21, 2014
Pros: benefits- 401k
Cons: hours, phone job, sleazy sales tactics
The people who work here are great, that's about it. They're energetic and willing to lend a helping hand… But it is truly a struggle to get through the work day "productively". If you have zero sales background or if you have any sense of humanity, you will not fit in here. I personally could not handle the excessive and aggressive sales force they use on their potential clients as well as current clients. They are pretty relentless when it comes to calling people until they get them on the phone. Oh, and you have to meet a certain amount of phone time every day. But it's kind of hard to do when you're getting rejected all the time. And then when you finally get someone who is somewhat interested in what you have to say, they immediately turn cold when you tell them the rates these people are charging! Your co-workers quickly become your competition. Especially if you don't get along with someone in your office. They will be the first to take a client out of your base.They have a database that is filled with clients that are "owned", or have been called SO many times that they demanded to be on the DO NOT CALL list they have accumulated over the last few years. Over all, i would say this job would have to be a last resort job. If you truly can't find anything else to do… WORK HERE. The schedule is absolutely ridiculous as well. 7-5 and if you tell them you need a day off they laugh, and if you actually take a day off, they talk about you the whole day you're gone, and when you get back the next day, they treat you like an outsider. They also look at people as if they're lazy if they don't stay until 6, 7, or 8 PM. As if 10 hours of your time isn't enough already. They also threw the idea around about working weekends! HAH! The work and life balance is non existent here. Kiss your social life goodbye.

A growing giant in a highly competitive field
Account Development Manager (Current Employee), Peabody, MAJune 18, 2014
Pros: different personality types, supportive managers
Cons: very stressful at times
From the morning hour-long team breakout sessions, to the dialing of the phones that ensue them - one certainly comes to find that this a job for the strong willed and highly motivated.

Working alongside the vastly different array of personality types (both on the phone and off), you quickly learn that this job is not for the weary. Energy and excitement are vital as you learn to develop your rhythm whilst trying to build strong and meaningful relationships with your clients. Your most powerful sell is yourself.

At times the job can be exciting, filled with celebrations of ones efforts and successes. Other times the job will challenge you, as you dive into the hard conversations that instill the necessary qualities for negotiation and above all else - sales.

High Turnover
Account Manager (Former Employee), Enfield, CT; Peabody, MA; Harwich, MA; Jupiter, FLMarch 20, 2014
Pros: 1 hr lunches, young/fun employees
Cons: hours are bad, high turnover, job is based off luck not skill, hard to stay motivated throughout the day
It is a job where you are on the phone 100% of the time searching for hospitals to utilize locum tenens (traveling nurses). Barton's services are expensive compared to the competition and that makes it hard for managers to use Barton. TURNOVER is VERY HIGH, work here at your own risk. Fun environment but you work M-F, 7am-5pm. Very hard to stay motivated when no one wants to answer your phone calls because locum agencies call hospitals everyday trying to earn their business. Job is 80% LUCK and 20% skill.

Not a conducive enviornment for being productive
Account Manager (Former Employee), Peabody, MAFebruary 20, 2014
Work subsisted of days of non-stop cold calling, with little to no assistance with training or over all direction. Co workers all worked very hard to meet deadlines, but saw lil reward.

worst company to work for
Account Manager/ Physician Recruiter (Former Employee), jupiterOctober 2, 2013
Cons: tons
this was the worst company i have ever worked for. yeah everyone is super nice to your face but when you get fired after 5 months because you dont meet "phone time" no one will talk to you. its ridiculous. Then you have stupid meetings every day from 7-8am about the same stuff, and they make you do role plays over the phone as if you were talking to your client and it embarrasses you. i wouldnt work here if i were you. they will fire you after 5 months anyways. i dont know about you but working mon-fri 7-5 just straight calling hospitals, is not my idea of "work".
