    Avantages

    You help families understand recruiting more than they did before you call them, you feel fulfilled emotionally when you see a commit come in from a family you helped, if you're in the Chicago office you encounter a lot of like minded people that enjoy sports, and overall you obtain positive inside sales experience.

    Inconvénients

    actual opportunity to earn a competitive amount of money

    Conseils à la direction

    Thank you for your review. I agree, the Recruiting Coordinator role is an amazing opportunity for recent college grads to gain sales and communication experience. It is very fulfilling to be able to help student-athletes begin their recruiting journeys. Through the recruiting coordinator ...

    Avantages

    NCSA's product is rivaled by none, truly. What they can provide to families (paid or free) is amazing. They are the #1 recruiting company in the world and are used by college coaches for a reason, they truly do help connect athletes. While their website is great for connecting, it could use an update (servers go down a fair amount, accounts/pages look dated, very light filter to actually join). But overall it is a great...

    Inconvénients

    Okay, here's where is very rough. NCSA as a whole is a company designed to connect student athletes to college coaches, but it quickly developed into a telemarketing company. I'll break down each part so you can get a good understanding of why I mention each part. On the Glassdoor NCSA is reviewed as a 3.1 out of 5 for "work life balance" and boy is that very inaccurate. You're required to do 45 hours a week,...

    Lisa Strassman is the leader of this company and she preaches that we need to change kids and their families lives, and I believe her message and I think she does. However once that message slides through the mess of management, it becomes a gritty and mud covered dollar that they're all fighting for. Get rid of half the sales staff there aren't that many recruits to be passing around. Get rid of super set days (they...

    At NCSA everyone is working towards the important mission of helping kids find the right college fit. The culture is amazing and we literally get to be part of a giant team filled with former college athletes. You'd think such a group could be cutthroat but to the contrary, I've never been in an environment where I felt more supported by my peers. We have the opportunity to compete with ourselves and to earn a great living...

    Inconvénients

    NCSA can be a challenging environment with lofty goals and high expectations. It can also be hard to find time to connect with busy families during the day which can cause some juggling or nontraditional hours. The company is quick to change things which takes some getting used to.

    No organization is perfect but I do not have anything specific to cite. I would also add that teammates' input is listened to and taken very seriously. Upgrades and improvements are made on an ongoing basis to benefits, perks, job structure, and candidate experience.

    Attempting to Help Families Find Athletic Scholarships

    Inconvénients

    Low Pay, Cheap Commission Structure, Less than Genuine Managers, No Diversity in Management except Women, run by people known to be conservative when it comes to sharing profits. NCSA is not an athletic company it is essentially a Hedge Fund (Reigning Champs) making easy profits from unsuspecting high school parents.

    Conseils à la direction

    Only 2% of high schoolers make a college athletic roster so most of the kids NCSA takes money from are not making it on a roster and they know it. Young new recruiting coordinators have to make the company approximately over $150k in sales before they are even commission eligible then has to make the company approximately $60k in sales every month to keep making commission. Imagine making 30 to 40 sales a month of about...

    I have been at NCSA for 8 years and can tell you that this is truly a great place to work. Leadership cares about its employees (called teammates at NCSA). Yes, they also care about being profitable because, let’s face it, we wouldn’t be where we are today if they didn’t! But, if you really know our leadership team, you’ll see they’re a group of passionate people who care about our families, our teammates and prioritize...

    NCSA is still a growing company, which means things can change. As long as you're open to change, understand why we can't be complacent and how change can help you grow as a professional, you'll do well here!

    Well let’s see first they will sell you a dream of working from home and making 100-150k a year. You quickly find out this is not the case. They fly you to chicago for training so you think ok this must be legit. Then it all goes down hill from that point. You will be working all night and all weekend. Basically 7 days a week. They say that’s not a requirement but in order to make any money be prepared to. The people...

    Get a real manager in place who knows how to grow a company. You have outgrown your market and are scamming poor people into giving there credit card information. Instead of over hiring become lean and mean. It should be obvious to anyone with business sense that you have outgrown your market. Become a lean mean ebitda machine instead of trying to grow revenue.
