This blog is an interesting read and greatly entertaining because some things are true and others are out of proportion.
I worked at the company for a long time and the things I am going to say are the truth.
Recruitment is not easy, it's cut throat and basic sales.
I think Kevin (the owner) is a genuine person and he is the first one to put his hands up if things have not gone well; but I also think it takes a while for things to get around to him.
I do believe the micro-management in the day to day work is over-obsessive and it drives people away, not just newcomers but also long standing staff.
Expect to be treated like a child whether you know the job or not.
The Czech situation is not a scam, but it’s built in the company’s interest; any company works for profit so you can clearly see that the program is in place to make the company succeed.
On some of the points I am not going to comment because I am not sure what the deal is with the new people coming into the business but I can clarify the following:
2- Accommodations arranged when you get there
The first accommodation is not great, but the flats you get moved to after are better.
3- Ability to earn from day one.
It depends on how sharp you are, it took me longer than that, because some people get it straight away and others (like me) take a while to understand the process
4 After 6 months at Czech Republic the ability to transfer to any of the other European offices including London
This is not entirely true, it takes longer because you need to be a biller that can pay for his desk cost. They won’t pay for you to move to London if you don’t make money (again it’s sales don’t expect to be treated well if you don’t perform)
5- Award winning training scheme
Anyone can win an award, I think McDonalds has won awards for best employer, but no one wants to work there
6- Taking on 10 people a month as they have just recently started expanding
Turnover is high because not everyone can take the pressure, or they don’t perform
7- the commission scheme
Any junior recruitment role pays very little, and what you are not told is that you are only paid the month that the candidate start the new job
8- the location
Small town 2 hours from Prague, it depends it does it for some and not for others
Refer to point 2
Overall I can say I learned a lot. I don’t like a lot of people at the company or the motto but we all know that the perfect job does not exist.
I think that if the overall opinion is that the company is a scam people shouldn’t worry because if that is the case it will fail.
What I have written is from direct experience, and if you don’t like sales don’t apply for the job.
In addition to that the fat guy that swears at people is no longer there. (as I said when things get to Kevin he sorts them)
I hope this helps to clarify things.
