Technical recruiter (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – December 7, 2015
prefect for recent grads that need to take a job right away and have no skills. Wouldn't take it , unless it is your last resort. toxic environment. serious micromanagement issues, no social life, and bad case of the pyramid scheme feel
Entry Level Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) – Boston – September 2, 2015
I worked at Jobspring Partners for just under a year and I just want to prepare these entry-level graduates for what they will be in for. The interview process includes them telling you what you want to hear. Everyone is friendly and it seems like a great place to work. The problem I had most with the company is that once they hire you the job becomes a 12 hour a day commitment. Taking a day off to go to a doctor appointment is even frowned upon. I was hesitant to ask for time off for my sister's wedding! You do learn some valuable skills while cold calling all day. They say in the interview you need thick skin but its because of the managers yelling and grunting their disapproval if a mistake is made. I don't want to paint the picture that this place is all bad. A typical day of work includes a team meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays, a scheduled lunch from 12-1 and then some more calls in the afternoon. If you can handle getting constantly rejected (Boston is a very competitive market for recruiting companies) you can eventually carve out a nice career there. With that said very very few employees last longer than six months with a very low base and more competitive wages elsewhere.
Training program, workplace experience, location of office
Very little pay, long hours, unpaid hours "homework", often rude managers

They are the best way to get a new job. Hands down. There is no one else that has a hard-working team that closely works with clients and hiring managers. They also host great regular events. It also helps that they are nationwide too!
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 10, 2015
This is a great opportunity if you want to get into sales and just starting your career. I started working at Jobspring right after graduation and I have seen multiple people get promoted under a year and under 2 years to manager... and are making over 100K a year. The company promotes from within and the career growth potential here is unreal if you work hard.
On the other hand, this job is entirely micromanaged and has no freedom. You are told exactly what to do and say by your manager who sits directly across from you and watches/questions your every move. When you don't do something exactly as they expect you to you are shamed and torn apart in front of the entire office. There is no positive reinforcement, only negative.
You are paid over time but you are also required to put in extra hours at home which you do not get paid for. Entry level employees are putting in at least 50-60 hours per week. No flexibility.
The way they expect you to pick up accounts and bring in candidates is by stalking people and calling them incessantly from different numbers to try and get them to pick up. Very unprofessional.
Full Life-Cycle Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – June 5, 2014
A place good for recent college grads to gain some experience. Few succeed here as it's a high-stress, high-expectation environment with poor pay in a highly competitive market. A lot of cold-calling and micro management and glamorous promises of success. Still, a good reality check for recent college grads on the real world.
Young, fast paced, and energetic environment. Great for entry level professionals to quickly dive in and soak up valuable skill sets.
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – March 19, 2014
Everyone is required to come in at 8:00AM or 8:30AM depending on the day of the week. Everyone morning is reserved for targeting our "hottest leads" in hopes of getting the hiring manager on the phone, building a relationship with them, and gaining their business. We kick off the afternoons by going over things we had accomplished in the morning or discuss any urgent matters that needed immediate attention. By the 2pm we either call candidates to recruit them or schedule them for client interviews.
I learned a wide spectrum of business development skills all the way over to owning the whole recruitment process. The management staff is pretty young, helpful, but sometimes short tempered. The environment I worked in was very loud and crazy all of the time. If you watched the movie Boiler room, then you may have an idea of what it was like at Jobspring.
The hardest part of the job was recovering when deals don't go down and continue doing the same thing day in day out in hopes that the next candidate has the whole package of what the client is looking for. The best part about the job is getting new business and getting candidates out to the interviews, finding candidates jobs, delivering great candidates to clients, and happy hour!
youthful environment, team collaboration, specialized market
attrition rate is really high, and compensation should be more for the amount of work we have to do
Great place to work and build necessary job skills!
Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) – Orange County, CA – January 23, 2013
Jobspring Partners is a great company to work for. They not only have one of the best recruitment training programs that sets you up for success, but they genuinely care about staying tech knowledgable and keeping up with the next big thing. As the Marketing Specialist, I have seen the progression of the company for over a year now and I can honestly say that this boutique staffing firm cares for their employees and has given the profession of recruiting a much more genuine feel. Instead of resume pushing, they sit down with every candidate and get to know them. This goes for the companies they work with as well. It's refreshing to be apart of a company that is reputable and clearly the best choice when it comes to finding your next tech career.
base salary, raises based on performance, great training, happy hour, charity outreach, bi-annual trips to corporate in boston, young staff, excellent management, full benefits, 401k
