I have been working at Experis as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Aggressive account managers that try to find new roles for you but do not always come through

Cons

Expected to work extra hours for the client for free
Benefits are poor even for long-term assignments. No 401K contributions. No vacation pay. No sick pay.No contact with the Experis people who got you hired during your contract
Very poor customer service for benefits, payroll, or anything else
Low pay rates and no opportunity for promotion

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care about your employees. You do very little to keep them engaged and around.

    I have been working at Experis as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a job. Gain some experience, but not enough to help your career. You get some money, but far far less than you would make for the same job in Minneapolis, Chicago, or even Omaha.

    Cons

    1. The Experis Manager is your real boss. He is the only one that can hire/fire you. Although, each team is different. Some have Citi Managers or Team Leads that act more like dictators than actual supervisors or managers.
    2. You will never get a raise, unless you are promoted to Team Lead. You can only be promoted if the current Team Lead leaves. Even Team Leads don't get raises. Experis has made this clear to the Team Leads and they make every one else aware of it. ( At least the good ones do. )
    3. The benefits suck, which is why they have a high turnover rate. And yes, this has been brought to the attention of the Experis Manager. He doesn't really care.
    4. Some advice: Always do the bare minimum. Going above and beyond will never get you anywhere in this job. The good Team Leads would agree on this one.
    5. I've been here around a year and have seen people fired within 2 days yet others fall asleep at their desk and manage to stay over 6 months. Experis doesn't seem to enforce the rules evenly.
    6. If you are smart you will quit right after hitting your 6 months because you have to wait 6 months for a Citi job if Experis hires you. Of course, Citi has their own issues and doesn't have any open jobs either. You only get Holiday pay after working for 1000 hours or about 6 months. You are only eligable for FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) after 2000 hours or about 1 year.
    Oh, and you don't get paid time off. Yet you are required to take a week off. Since Experis won't give PTO, this becomes mandatory unpaid time off for a week every year.
    7. Working with Citi kinda sucks. Communication is a major issue that Citi, nor Experis, seem to care about.

    I have been working at Experis as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    In these days of fly-by-night recruiters who are unprofessional, amateurish, and downright rude, this is a good, stable professional company for individuals who are looking for legitimate temporary contract positions. Have training site which is a good way to get light quick training to help transition into new job.

    Cons

    Limited benefits - contractor type package, more expensive than traditional. Did have issue with recruiter forgetting to follow-up for me on a very positive interview due to his disorganization; think I lost contract job because of this. However, gained similar position found by them a month later.
