Success Stories: Time to Hire Uses Bravo to Disarm the Skeptics

Every so often we invite our customers to tell their stories. Today’s success story involves Chad Bronstein, founder of Time to Hire. His company connects thousands of qualified commission sales people with businesses who are looking to hire positions in direct sales, in-home sales, outside sales, inside sales, and sales management.

Chad Bronstein

What exactly does your company do?

Time To Hire helps companies of all types find US-based commission only sales reps quickly and cost effectively.

What sets you apart from other companies in your industry?
  1. Time to Hire is active vs passive recruiting. The current standard for recruiting is the job posting, however candidates typically won’t respond to commission-only job postings. Time To Hire actively searches through 130 million resumes to find potential matches and then contacts them on behalf of their customer. Candidates who are interested will call the client directly where they can book them into individual or group interviews.
  2. While it can take several weeks to get responses to a job posting, our service works in just a day or two.
  3. More qualified candidates. Anyone can submit their resume to a job posting. Time To Hire searches for candidates and only interested or curious candidates respond, which leads to a more qualified candidate.
  4. Cost effective. Our service starts at $399.
Why do you use Bravo?

When we started the company we ran into a lot of skeptical people. Video testimonials help us overcome this objection for the majority of prospective clients. We use Bravo because it simplifies the video creation process for our customer and reduces the amount of editing time on our end.
