    I have been working at Advance Services full-time

    Pros

    Good place to build experience in many facets of HR.
    Generally decent co-workers.
    My regional manager is VERY good.

    Cons

    NO PERFORMANCE REVIEWS - This is my biggest complaint, I have worked well over a year in the company and have NEVER received a performance appraisal even when I've asked for feedback. I like being validated in what I'm doing well and where I need to improve.

    Underpaid & overworked - Staying late and working weekends often necessary just to stay up on paperwork and filling positions. This is not a complaint about working hard, but there is NO incentive to bust your ass consistently other than to keep your job. Work/life balance is terrible.

    95% of jobs to be placed are merely general labor meaning the only people who will take them are uneducated and normally come with a criminal record. Consistently dealing with that element will eventually cause you to lose faith in humanity and lose any/all sympathy you may have had for them. When your first worry is IF they'll even go to work, much less do the work, its very depressing and mentally draining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give FEEDBACK.
    Give raises.
    Reward those who put in the extra time to make this company work!

  5. Initially promising, but change in culture disheartening

    I worked at Advance Services

    Pros

    Pros - challenging opportunities, plenty of projects to start or complete and work to dig into, employees band together

    Cons

    progressively shifting away from "family friendly" environment, removing employee benefits for the benefit of the company's bottom line, high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that employees help build the platform for your success
