Recruiting question answered

Do corporate recruiters get commission?

The short answer

Most corporate recruiters are salaried employees and do not get commission on hires.

Most corporate recruiters are salaried employees, meaning they do not receive commission for the candidates they hire. However, some companies do offer commission-based pay for recruiters who are able to successfully bring in new hires. In these cases, the amount of commission a recruiter earns is typically a percentage of the new hire’s salary. For example, a recruiter might earn 5% commission on a new hire who is earning a salary of $50,000.
