Looking for referrals.

Boyfriend just got a reject from AWS :( I referred him and personally, I think they marked him as overqualified for the role he was applying to because he used my exact template to interview but was a military officer in addition to 5ish years of tech sales experience.

Looking for companies that values vets (even ones more than 18 months out from their discharge) hiring for jr sales, inside sales, or account manager/ client success.

Been trying to find a post or thread about office settings for agencies and can’t find anything so wanted to give a shot at a quick poll as the market is brutal in this regard and makes recruitment impossible…

Which agencies out there are working in office full time (and if not now, when), hybrid, or completely remote? How is it being received by peers?

Thank you in advance!! Any help is SUPER appreciated.

So, I got through to final stages at a management consultancy where they all ‘loved me’ apparently. Job being advertised at £50-70k, they said I have potential & if they do want to offer me a role (within 2 wks as snr mgt team all on holiday wtf) would be a starting salary of £45k with salary increases (timeline of this increase tbd) in accordance with my performance. They’ve tried recruiting internally but can’t even get anyone past the first round. I feel like rejecting on principle! Thoughts?

Hi fellow HR folx! I am hoping for shared ideas on a project I am working on. We’re looking to revamp our attendance policy, which needs a more encouraging, positive element. I am curious if my fellow HR folx are willing to share what has worked for them or really what good looks like. Not sure if this is the right bowl to share this post in, but if there is one-I’d like to get to the right direction!

I’m in my 3rd Quarter as an SDR and we’re paid on meetings booked. All Qs in 2021 and Q1 ‘22 goal were 21/Q… Q2 increased to 35 (with 0 evidence that we could hit this number)… no one hit it but we still did our best Q yet.

We’re < 1 week from the end of Q3. Our goal was 35, but as of 2 weeks ago they told us it has changed. They did not tell us how it changed, just that it had. They still have not given us our commission structure. We don’t know how we’re being paid this quarter.

Unethical?

Need some help regarding sales quotas. Can management increase your quota solely because you’re doing well and exceeding it? I’ve been here less than a year, and have since established my capabilities with sales, and my numbers now put me in at number 3 highest selling sales rep of the entire company. My quota has now been changed 3 times since being here, with the latest increase being a jump of 2x what my previous quota was, just because I had a good month. Is this normal/fair?
