    Pros

    Pay weekly.
    Recruiter is easy to contact.
    Website is easy to navigate for hours submission and pay history.

    Cons

    Pay is below what other contractors pay for the same work.
    Insurance is a joke, you are better off with ObamaCare.
    Other contractors are paying people I manage more and also giving them a laptop. But because of the contract I signed I would have work at completely different client if I switched.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise your pay levels or lose the best people.

    I worked at Apex Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good recruiter, good travel department, good client relations manager. Staff in MD are top notch.

    Cons

    Took a long time to reimburse travel expenses. It's understandable there was a lot of coordination that needed to happen and sometimes things get delayed, but the amount of time it took was too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reimburse expenses promptly. Keep up the good work otherwise.

    Pros

    Personnel was very friendly and well organized, with a consistent communication on all changes and updates with my contract.

    Cons

    Upper management Executives did not disclose future changes which required releasing several employees from the entire IT Department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management Executives did not disclose future changes which required reducing or eliminating departments with out notifying personnel in that department.

    I have been working at Apex Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very professional staff. The recruiters do a great job of following up with new hires. They have a contract with a well known Austin base computer companies which helps them in seeking employees. Since this is a contract does give you the flexibility to leave at any time during the term of the contract.

    Cons

    Would like for them to find clients that are offering full time positions instead of contract jobs. This was an issue with my last employer. I would like to see the possibility of finding full time employment with fair compensation for my education and work experience.

    I have been working at Apex Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The recruiters are very professional, and friendly. Most I've worked with are prompt to answer questions and help esculate issues.I had no real issues .... mostly time reporting that required changes on a corporate level but were handled very quickly.

    Cons

    I get a call for a job once every 2-3 months, doesn't seem to be any hurry to actually found you a gig. They have you upload a resume but always request you send one. Seems like a communication (both ways) issue.

    Former Employee - Helpdesk Technician in Nashville, TN

    I worked at Apex Systems

    Pros

    Quick and easy interview process. It took forever and a few emails to management but they were able to get me a schedule that I needed to continue working.

    Cons

    Had to go through 3 different background checks, which took weeks, even after we were hired. Background check companies were lazy and WE the employees had to provide them with documents that they easily were able to obtain. The management only looks out for themselves. This was my first job with a staffing company. Anytime I had to be out of work due to serious life threatening medical reasons, Id email my supervisor and she'd never respond. So that showed a lack of concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show real, not fake, concern about your employees. They'll stay instead of going to find another position where they feel valued. And then you wont have to start a new training class almost every single week.

    Pros

    Best reason, they pay weekly. Very easy to get ahold of for any problems

    Cons

    They told me they would hire me back after the 60 days "off", 18 months on...their policy, but they never did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They shouldn't make promises they have no way of controlling.
