    Pros

    Allowed for a flexible schedule, the jobs that you could be sent to were optional and were not forced to take them

    Cons

    Once you were assigned a company to go and work for, other than the paycheck you received, Crown Services no longer made contact.

    Advice to Management

    Ask how your temporary agents are doing upon the assignment they were given.

    Pros

    You get paid that's about all I have to say. Minimum wage but its money. That's about all I have for pros

    Cons

    The place they sent me to was awful. The boss was a undercover heroin addict. When he wasn't high then 9/10 he was drunk on wild Irish rose.

    Pros

    - Easy to get a job as a Crown employee (as opposed to their temp jobs) since there is so much turnover throughout the offices in company. - Regional (Midwest) presence of over 35 offices. HQ is run by family owners in Columbus, OH. - There are basically two types of jobs in the company - coordinators / recruiters (fixed pay, no commission) and sales managers - Annual conference with a free trip to Columbus, OH for salespeople.

    Cons

    - Highly competitive industry. Crown sells itself as a best practices company at competitive prices, but actually offers nothing more than any of their competition. Our sales reps always complained about this. - Each office competes not only with other companies, but also other offices in the Crown organization. Sales territories are very defined. Most offices are made up of two or three people. - Crown management makes it clear that it is a sales organization. New accounts are valued over old accounts. Coordinators simply fill the sales orders and are not valued much beyond that. The annual convention is for the salespeople and managers, for example. - Paid holidays are limited to a handful and other benefits are pathetic. Virtually no promotions. Why was everyone in the office required to wear skirts or suit and tie when we were working on labor jobs? - For sales people, there is little marketing support or advertising. Everything is done via old fashioned dated cold calling methods and that is heavily watched. - Micro-management is the rule not the exception. - Technology is not a priority for the company. Even the smallest competitor to Crown has an advantage here.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management would never consider changing anything since these offices have been run this way for years.

    Pros

    Im sure the jobs obtained would be decent.

    Cons

    The Staffing Representatives are very unfriendly, and down right rude. Very unprofessional. We are offering them the opportunity to represent us.

    Advice to Management

    Carey Noonan needs to be reevaluated on her people skills and customer service. I was not happy after leaving an interview, and not sure if I would want your company representing me for any future job positions.

    Pros

    Excellent exposure to sourcing, recruiting, interviewing, local emplyment laws, and many other key HR skills. Fun environment, although that depends on the office.

    Cons

    Low starting hourly rate. Tough role for thin-skinned individuals. Performing on-site drug screenings was not fun, and frankly, a bit gross.

    Advice to Management

    Continue putting people in leadership roles that can lead by example and drive business results.

    Pros

    I do not have any pros for this company. I am just filling out my 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    Depends on the job, you work for 7.50 an hour. People are there just to collect a check.
