After 20 years I now have the privalage to work from my home office.
Virtual Recruiter-RPO Senior Specialist (Current Employee) – Home based in Galveston Texas – January 7, 2016
I am a Sr. Virtual Contract Recruiter RPO, Specialist, home based in Texas. I source and recruit Management Territory Teams in Indianapolis and the State of Michigan for 4 Hiring Managers and one Director of Sales.
This is a very stressful position. One would need to be available at times in the evenings in order to be successful in reaching professionals that are working during the day.
I am paid hourly and no over time is available. I put in 10 hours a day with no lunch and I am only paid for 40 hours. I am making only half of what someone with my experience and success should be earning. I started my career at the same pay rate 20 years ago. You receive no bonuses, commission, kudos or feedback.
No PTO, Health Benefits are offered and I started receiving Holiday pay after one year of service.
The only upside is that my office is at home and that saves me gas money, professional attire, and the comfort of being in my home with my puppy all day.
I do not ask for anything from Manpower, I feel like they should have already offered a pat on the back and a raise is well over due after 4 year of being used and abused while I am working hard and stressing to meet deadlines the Upper Management worries that we do not know how to use a Boolean string and they have company paid entertainment and make a lot more money for basically working PR with Comcast and they actually have time for lunch and dinner. I work hard and long hours half of those hours are free, all to make the Uppers look good.
A thank you is at least a recognition. I am still waiting for mine.
You HAVE to work OT with no pay to meet their expectations.
