    Pros

    Caliper Inc is a company I had never heard of. Being in the Staffing Industry for so long, that was a little concerning when considering offer made to me. I worked on site at our client's location for over a year. It was a start up opportunity and was very successful. The entire staff at the corporate level are some of the more exemplary professionals I have ever worked for. I was provided ample training then given free reighn to run the business for my location. It was the catalyst in my career and upon elimination of my position (which was not due to any account issues) was given several opportunities, both to stay on with the client contract, was offered a full time position with the client and ultimately decided to vacate and accept an opportunity of a lifetime that has provided me the ability to finish my degree for free. Overall, even with the 2 little bumps in the road ( referred to as growing pains and expected) I have nothing but positive things to say about this growing company and the entire staff. Thank you very much for trusting my professional judgement and allowing me to grow more and more confident in my abilities.

    Cons

    Would suggest making prepaid paycards available to all temporary workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Friendl'y staff who responds promptly to emails and phonecalls, places long-term temps in promising environments to apply, benefits included with a decent pay

    Cons

    No room for growth, no salary increase since it's considered a long-term 'temp job'

    Advice to Management

    follow up with temp employees to see what improvements can be made and offer staffing services in order to place temps in full time position

    Money,people and knowing I have a great contract company like caliper behind me.

    Cons

    Hard work day in day out.

    Advice to Management

    Carrie sparks the account rep. For caliper is the best recruiter I've ever dealt with she's in contact on a daily or by daily basis to see how caliper associates are doing. Great rep. To have on your side. I have not been at faurcia long enough to judge management but I can say my super and gap leader on second shift weld are great.
