Spherion: A Pioneer in Staffing & Workforce Management
In 1946, Leroy Dettman capitalized on an emerging demand for contingent labor by creating City Car Unloaders. Opening its doors in Chicago, Illinois, Dettman founded the business with the vision to “connect the right employee with the right business at the right time.” He began by helping local Chicago companies find temporary help in loading and unloading freight shipments. Realizing the potential value across all industries, Dettman expanded the business beyond light industrial staffing to provide local companies with clerical and administrative office support, quickly becoming a powerful force in the newly established staffing industry.
In the succeeding years, the company broadened its expertise in supporting clients with a wider range of skill sets, adding professional positions that have come to include technology, finance, accounting, marketing, law, engineering, manufacturing, sales and human resources.
Establishing a reputation as an innovator, Spherion® was:
- First to develop an on-site workforce management solution
- First to use television as a medium for recruiting
- First to utilize interactive, voice-response technology to pre-screen job candidates
- First to introduce remote workforce support
- First to establish the staffing industry's only fully integrated, Web-based operating system—enabling greater responsiveness, speed in addressing customer needs, filling open positions and tracking performance
Spherion’s broad-based experience in recruiting is founded on an in-depth understanding of the workforce and the issues that drive performance. Today, Spherion continues to apply this expertise to help clients more effectively plan, acquire and optimize talent to improve their bottom line. Backed by a strong history of leadership, innovation and success, Spherion brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to your staffing initiatives. And, we do it with the kind of personalized service and attention that speaks of local ownership!

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Spherion (Elkhart, IN) in July 2015.
The pre-interview work was simple and easy, however the interview was a little more aggravating. As soon as it was noted that I needed to have the Sabbath Day off, I was automatically dismissed. She quickly became passive-aggressive and refused to even finish the interview, because of my religious belief limitations. All I needed was 1 day off per week, but she refused to even attempt to accommodate that. This is what the government refers to as "religious discrimination in the workplace", and I'll be contacting the EEOC in regards to this. Apparently only atheists can work for this company.
