How are senior leaders perceived at Premier Group Recruitment?

Pros

good perks like a PT and some nights out

Cons

Working for Premier is a very wolf of wall street culture, you will get a very low salary and will work your socks off for you to not be appreciated unless you are billing thousands every month, the effect the down talk and micromanagement will have for your mental health isn't worth it. the work environment is very unprofessional, managers making jokes about girls on their knees. seniors shouting and being horrid on an hourly basis. you cant have a 2 min break without being told to pick up the phone and you haven't billed in over a month blah blah blah. The lad culture as said bellow is awful, girls are cliques as and the boys will degrade every woman that walks past on the way to the toilet. Seniors hardly did any work but will openly mock everyone, and when you start you are labelled a rookie and made to slog for the seniors and do all there work. be prepared to be in the office till 9-10 most evenings because if you don't have CVS flying out your ears they will find a way to fire you, you can't make any mistakes here without being publicly humiliated in front of the whole office. High Drug Culture amongst Management oh and be prepared to become mentally unstable :)

Advice to Management

sort the environment, seniors and management out and you might have something good going for you.

How are the career development opportunities at Premier Group Recruitment?

Pros

Music in the office, staff parties, met a few nice people, career path was transparent and Ben was great

Cons

Hours were a joke so there was no work life balance, the pay wasn’t worth the hassle and the hours, you were micromanaged for every stat you can think of and the senior colleagues were some of the most unprofessional people you could imagine, lad culture was disgusting and some of the girls even got involved too to try and fit in which is disturbing. Some seniors would barely pull their weight and still openly mock new people which was acceptable apparently.

Advice to Management

reevaluate your senior and lead consultants and stop micromanaging

How are promotions handled at Premier Group Recruitment?

Pros

Incentives - If you're prepared to work hard, and I mean really hard, then there are plenty of rewards and incentives along the way which you will earn! I've literally been on some of the best incentives that most people can only dream of. Career - I developed my career from Trainee Consultant through to Business Manager over the course of 10 years, and have my sights set on future promotions. It's not a given, but if you are doing well and determined to develop your career, then there is plenty of opportunity. Initial promotions are based on sales targets (Senior/Lead Con) but after this you have the chance to steer your career in the direction you want, if you have the capability to do so. Commission - Having worked in recruitment prior to Premier Group, I can tell you that wherever you work, you have to graft for your money. I've put in 15 hour shifts to ensure I'm doing enough business to get to the higher end of the commission structure (30-40%), 11 to 12 hour days as standard. I've earned commission beyond expectations (£12k in a single month), and way beyond what I could have earned at other agencies. People - The business has a good structure across management, sales, business support and back office. You're never far away from someone who can/will help you, as long as your prepared to ask!

Cons

Long Hours & Pressure - As above, if you want to do well in this job, you have to put in the hours and be assertive with your time. If you think you can make a ton of money by doing the basic hours, then this is not the job for you. Any sales job comes with targets and pressure, so if you cant handle it then consider something else.

Advice to Management

Keep on investing in the business, technology and the people, you have a good thing going here.

Are employees at Premier Group Recruitment generally happy and/or satisfied?

Pros

Good staff incentives. Music at work. Really good commission structure. In a WeWork building.

Cons

Very high expectations. Crazy long working hours. Horrible working environment. Cut-throat sales role. Staff turnover is extremely high. Inappropriate leader. No work/life balance. Horrible culture. Most likely not going to last past the next year as no one wants to stay in a recruitment job with them.

Advice to Management

Understand that you are not in England, you're in the USA, so our working way is very different from yours. Recruit a manager for the team that knows how to motivate and manage.

Horrible working environment.
