    I have been working at Absolute Staffers full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. The atmosphere is positive, uplifting, and fun. It' s a pleasure working with my co-workers and management. We currently have a good team. I have gained much experience in my field as well as, learned more about the company. Pay and benefits are great. I like my role in the company and the fact that there is opportunity for growing. Management are great mentors and role models for me, and encourage growth and development. I like coming to work everyday to Absolute Staffers. This is one of the best companies I have had the opportunity to work for.

    Cons

    The company needs more hard-working employees that see and believe in the vision and mission of the Company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing and executing the vision and mission of the company.

    I worked at Absolute Staffers full-time

    Pros

    Honestly can say there are no pros to working here.

    Cons

    There is no accountability, management is not knowledgeable about the industries in which they work, there is a lot of buck-passing and blame casting, salaries are usually low, they do not thoroughly vet employees and tend to hire unqualified individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sell the company to another organization that knows what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start a new business.. One that doesn't involve you working with people… or animals or anything living. You will destroy it…. The one star I gave you was one too many, trust me...

    I worked at Absolute Staffers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They paid on time for the entire year I was employed.

    Cons

    The federal contract with Absolute was not renewed and thus, my job ended. i'm a Registered Nurse. I had 10 days leave accrued and I asked ,during my last two weeks of work, if they would honor my request to be have my PTO cashed out. THey said they would and continued, for a month, to say they would.... They still owe me over 3 thousand dollars!
    They kept every penny and lied about their "effort" to have my earned pay deposited into my account. This is a sad example of how companies treat employees. :-(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BE HONEST!

    Not So Bad

    I worked at Absolute Staffers

    Pros

    Absolue was a true learning experience. Takes a lot of patience to get adjusted to the personalities, but not a terrible experience.

    Cons

    Management leads without clear direction, and realistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure core values and commitments are followed and consistant. Also, take time to sincerely appreciate the good in what you have, the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

    I worked at Absolute Staffers full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are no pros working for this company. They focus on things that just don't matter and let the important stuff, like human capital walk out the door again and again.

    Cons

    Too many to list. The average tenure of any employee is less than 90 days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the people business

    I have been working at Absolute Staffers full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This company is by far one of the most easy going companies that I have ever worked at. I was a little skeptical at first due to bad reviews but it seems like management has gotten this company under control. The staff is kind and hardworking and it's very peaceful in the office. The pay and benefits are great and the owners really seem to value their employees.

    Cons

    Understaffed- I feel as though if they hired a little more people to completely fill out the departments Absolute Staffers would be the perfect contracting company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay consistent and diligent in your efforts because your hard work is clearly paying off.

    Pros

    None that can be listed

    Cons

    Very poorly run company. Management has no idea what they are doing. Company constantly in crisis mode they never get ahead of the curve. Decisions are not based on any sort of reason but on feeling at the time. Personnel in senior positions they are not qualified for. Company exhibits very high turnover. They have turned over their entire staff three times in two years. No one has been at the company for longer than a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to school take classes in management and communications. Learn how to communicate withe employees and customers. When you put a person in a position make sure they can do he work and let them do the work.

    Pros

    There are no pros to list.

    Cons

    So many to list. Highly unethical family run business who treat there employees extremely poorly. Turnover in management rampant!!! Owners are clueless and have no business knowledge or education. Wages are well below market avg plus a nasty and mean mother/daughter ownership equals one horrible place to work. Don't let them suck you in with there false promises!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to treat people and stop cheating employees out of their entitled benefits. Go to college and get a business degree.

    Pros

    This is a good entry level position if you can handle the stress and unorganization of the company

    This company is a HUGE MESS, you are over worked and under paid. This is a family owned company and they no idea what they are doing any aspect of the busines. They do not treat employees well. They over work employees and try to blame things from the past on new employees. Employee turn over is outrageous! i would not suggest this company to anyone!
