Executive Recruiter (Former Employee) – Colorado – June 21, 2017
First of all there is a draw. The way they present it to you, you should be fine until your pipeline builds not true. Supposedly a team environment but it is cut throat. Immediate management is great that is all I can say.
Great experience learning the business
Micromanaged, dog eat dog, draw and commission only
Executive Recruiter (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 13, 2017
Picture the movie Glengarry Glen Ross, or the Boiler Room, and you will have an idea of what it is like to work at the Bradsby Group. Promises are made, but not delivered. They claim you're part of a team, but I've never been so alone in my life. Leadership will tell you what you want to hear, but never deliver. They will use you for whatever they can, and drop you like a bad habit. There is no training, and no attempt to help an employee improve. You either make it happen, or you are out.

If you've seen the movie you know what I mean. My ratings do not necessarily reflect my experience there. In fact I really enjoyed working there but it's not a fit for me. You are expected to work AT LEAST 50 hours per week plus do work when you get home and on the weekends. The environment is loud and unprofessional. It really didn't bother me that much but it's important to note.
The salary is a draw against commission which for an experience recruiter isn't necessarily a turn-off. However, it takes a very long time to actually place someone in a position so by the time you do, most if not all of your commission just goes straight to your draw so I was having trouble figuring out how I was ever going to actually make money there and not just donate it all back to the company to pay on my draw.
Overall, it's not bad but be prepared for what you're getting into.

True sales environment. Ethical recruiters without commission breath. Work with some challenging people as well as some of the greatest. Not much training, so you have to work hard, and absorb. Employee owned company. Wish there was more leeway with time off. Ultimately they set the foundation for success and you either make it or you don't. Best job I've ever had, enjoy it 9/10 days.
I only spent 4 months with Bradsby. My supervisor was a great manager and mentor. He and I still keep in touch. However, I vehemently disagree with the CEO. The CEO allowed some things to happen that shouldn't have and fired people when they disagreed with him. I wasn't part of this, but I was close to those who were.

I have worked for Bradsby Group for more than four years. I enjoy the environment, employees, and management. My husband has moved to The Ft Worth area with his company and I am moving with him. Otherwise, I would have never left Bradsby Group.
Web Developer (Former Employee) – Colorado – November 19, 2013
Took a one year contract that only lasted four months before the company decided to move its task force to another country. Had to work there for three months before being eligible for insurance. Then, when contract ended, they did not have any new work, so I got a job somewhere else. When I was laid off from that job, I filed for unemployment and Bradsby group said I had quit my job. I was able to prove that I had finished my contract and won my case, but Bradsby shouldn't have fought the unemployment.
I liked my recruiter
No other jobs, fought unemployment, 3 month wait for insurance
