    Pros

    They find you good jobs and the people that work there are nice and they do try to find you a job as fast as possible.

    Cons

    It takes them awhile to find you a job sometimes and the jobs take awhile to hire you on full-time when they find you one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have good workers try to keep them employed

    Pros

    Decent work/life balance - little to no overtime. Able to work from home

    Cons

    Too many hoops for candidates to jump through just to get a phone call from a recruiter. Candidates loose interest...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the process - or better yet, bring back the old process...

    The worst job I ever had in my life!!!

    Former Employee - Recruiter  in  Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Recruiter in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    There were no pro's except that the location of the Atlanta was close to where I lived so traffic and commute was not too bad. Other than that, there was nothing good about this job at all.

    Cons

    The branch manager was a liar. She hired me to take her place so she could leave me to run the branch by myself. The upper management are all close friends with each other so there is no point going to HR or anyone else because they are all in it together. There is NO work life balance at all. All recruiters are expected to use their personal phone for work with no compensation and you're expected to be "on call" 24/7 even on holidays and vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer to look at your corporate recruiters and HR team. They are shady.

    Pros

    They have enough placements in well known companies that they can remain in the game despite the numerous operational dysfunctions.

    Cons

    From the initial contact from a recruiter, through the engagement, you are treated like cattle by someone who has no real understanding on what the project is about nor how your background fits in. You can explain it to them but all they do is listen for buzzwords contained on their requisitions. It's apparent that few of them have actually worked in IT in any real operational capacity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Count your blessings while you can and cross your fingers that you are still able to find contractors who don't know their worth that you may pay them only a fraction of what they are worth in order to make margin.

    Okay for a staffing agency

    Pros

    Easy online billing, offer limited health insurance options to contractors, smooth day-to-day operations and dealing with ordinary business issues, timely payments

    Cons

    Not really responsive or efficient when resolving non-standard queries, health insurance has poor coverage and is overpriced, compensation just at the market average or a bit lower

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be nice to hire more efficient and enthusiastic employees for improved service quality and look into better insurance options

    Pros

    There were honest about the position. If they wouldn't have a high turn over of employees I would still be working for them

    Cons

    There was no communication when a person needed to take a day off or appointments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more contracts paying a decent pay rate. Just bcz Seattle changed their ay rate to $15.00/hr does not mean a person with experience still has to work for $15.00

    I had good communication between myself, the staff and my employees.

    Former Employee - Supervisor  in  Greenville, SC
    Former Employee - Supervisor in Greenville, SC

    Pros

    I enjoyed working my with my emploiyees and helping them to grow everyday whether it was in their job or whether I just needed to be a ear to listen.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges that I ran across as the time went along was that the responsibility grew as more assignments were handed over to the staffing agency and the company didn't compensate the supervisors to keep up with the additional duties.

    I was placed at DexOne in Phoenix by Advantage in 2010 and was delighted to work for them as a temp for 5 months at $20

    Pros

    Work duties were easily picked up because of my previous Admin/Customer Service experience at Qwest Communications.

    Cons

    At DEXONE the office was very competitive and the initial training was done by manager Jeremy Packer at DexOne while subsequent training was shared from my peers. All of my co-workers had family refer them to the position, so advancement was rather difficult for me to attain.
