Great place to work, but it takes a certain type of person
Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – July 22, 2012
A typical day at work is making 75 to 100 cold/warm calls to companies to see if they would like to use Workbridge's services to hire the perfect candidate. Then you would call candidates to get a better understanding of their background and what they are looking for in the future. Other obligations could be working on the hiring process of setting up companies and candidates for interviews, salary negotiations, and closing.
I learned a lot about sales and the hiring process.
The managment at Workbridge is really great. They are always available for guidance, questions, and support.
My co-workers were all out going fun people. There was no cut throat sales atmosphere. Everyone helped everyone else get better.
The hardest part of the job was getting your numbers up. You cold called a lot and it mostly depends on catching someone at a time when they could talk, they had the money to use our services, there was a position open, they were ready to hire, and the hiring manager was willing to work with you directly. The most important part of the job was sourcing every day to get new leads of companys to call. Time management was key when working there.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people almost everyday, working with your co workers, and the feeling of talking to a hiring manager who wanted to use your services.
great working environment, meetings that constantly help you improve your skills, supportive environment, room for growth, a really great salary if you do well, training program to get you ready for the job
cold calling sales, a lot of work after hours and on the weekends to get ahead, no benefits until the 3rd month of being employed (benefits are amazing though)
