Pros: Great culture, great training, great personalities
Cons: Takes a while for commission, you have to build your own book of clients
Recruiting, marketing and desk are the 3 roles that are included in a Staffing Manager. Recruiting: you find the candidates who you have open job orders for. Marketing: you cold call on everyone and anyone. Desk: you speak with the clients, take the availability calls from candidates, fill the job orders and take the new job orders. There are different types of management styles, depending on if your manager is hands-on or not. If your manager was hired on as a staffing manager then got promotions, you are in the right hands. They do not give any notice of lay-offs. Co-workers are great and they will probably have the same personality as you, everyone works as a team. The hardest part of the job is having to cold call, build your own client book and maintain your marketing goals while you are doing a full desk. The most enjoyable part of the job is finding candidates jobs, dealing with the candidates and clients and being with your team, if you are on a good team.
