What to Expect During the Trial:

We initially invite qualified candidates into a trial, which means you will be engaged in a temporary contract position that will last 2-8 weeks. You'll be paid a competitive, weekly fee  during the trial. The purpose of the trial is to make sure that you're a good fit for Chained Wolf and that we're a good fit for you. During the trial you'll work on a project and be assigned to a Team Lead who will be your coach during your trial.

If you're invited to participate in a trial, you along with a team of other "trialers", will be challenged with a project. You'll work both individually and collectively as a team to successfully complete the project. During the trial you'll participate in the "Chained Wolf Recruiter" training program. This is training we've developed that takes individuals with no recruiting experience and turns them into Super Recruiters in just a few weeks. It is 100% online, fast paced, and perfect for individuals who are hungry to learn and take action.

Additionally, during the trial we provide you with both one-on-one coaching and team-based coaching. At the start of the trial you'll be provided an open job order (position). We expect you to have placed a candidate in an open job order by the end of the trial. The ultimate goal of the trial is to see if you and the Chained Wolf team are a good fit for one another. Performance expectations are high, but we provide you with the support required to succeed.

After The Trial:

If you successfully complete the trial you’ll be invited to have a final interview.  If you make it through the final interview, you’ll be offered a regular, ongoing contract position with Chained Wolf.  


We have a simple and transparent compensation structure. You’ll be paid a monthly retainer fee as well as an uncapped commission structure based on performance.


Do I have to have prior recruiting or industry experience?

No, and we actually prefer that you don't. Everything that you need to succeed will be provided to you - training, coaching, and a proven recruiting system. You need to have a willingness to learn and a desire to put that knowledge into action.

What's the Chained Wolf Recruiter training like?

All of our training is virtual. We use an online learning platform to deliver each lesson. We're always standing by to answer questions or to provide guidance if needed.

What's it like to work with the Chained Wolf Team?

We are a driven group of individuals who are constantly seeking to make each other and the team better. We utilize a system that smartly integrates tech into every step of the process. We're a team of humans that leverages technology to provide a superior service to our clients and community. Expect to use Slack, Google, Trello, and 8X8 just to name a few apps.

Is this really 100% remote?

Yes, you can live and work from wherever you want. We do have 2-day quarterly team meetings at various locations across the country. Additionally, each year the entire team gathers at an exciting destination to relax, unwind, and get to know our teammates better.
