    I worked at Spherion full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed the company I worked for as a vendor.

    Cons

    Working as a vendor makes the relationship very complicated. You rarely see or talk to your manager from Spherion and instead it seems you work for the other company since they tell you what to do.

    I have been working at Spherion full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I am really glad they called me as I am very happy with the job I have. I just wish the company I work for, Spectrum Brands, could hire me permanently. My boss is trying to get us hired on, but is having difficulty with that as the corporate culture is to keep temporary workers on long-term without hiring them officially and giving them benefits.

    Cons

    The lack of a good benefit package is a con.

    I worked at Spherion full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Initially they helped me find work doing GIS for 11.50 which was a living for me and they had me do work as a scanner, the people out at the Bismarck location are very nice too.

    Cons

    Unfortunately my second assignment was too low in pay and I couldn't afford to live on that income plus there the office in Madison doesn't seem to care that I worked with them at the Bismarck location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more opportunity for growth or get hired on by the company who is using the agency.

    I worked at Spherion full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Spherion under contract to Agilent Technologies straight out of high school. It was a great temporary position where I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Not much to complain about really. The only downside was that at the time they were actively outsourcing out of the US and laying a lot of people off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage your employees and help them to take an active role in the success of the business. Even temporary contract employees have a lot to contribute.
