I have been working at Experis as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

On-boarding was professional, benefits (paid by you) choices were reasonable.

Cons

Rarely interacted for any reason, no plan for continuation or developing a career. Dropped like a hot potato after assignment completed.

No opinion of CEO

    Got set up by Las Vegas office for a Diamond Resorts bait and switch

    I worked at Experis as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have not had a successful contract through Experis

    Cons

    Was contacted by the Phoenix, AZ office to work on a PL/SQL project for Diamond Resorts in Las Vegas. Interviewed with a manager from Great Britain discussing the PL/SQL work. We hit it off great. I was awarded the contract.

    Then the local Experis Las Vegas got involved. Next thing you know an account rep from the Vegas office was setting things up. When I got to job site at Diamond's a lower level project manager was there to meet me. She did not have an available desk for me. All the other staff had a desk. She sat me at a temporary desk.

    Next instead of starting me on the PL/SQL work that the original interviewing manager I was asked to work on defects. Defects in their application. It turned out that they were not able to properly catch errors in their web application nor did they have staff knowledgeable enough to point me to the location of code that was in error.

    When I brought the subject up of the bait and switch from a PL/SQL Developer to fixing defects in the blind to the local Experis account rep he explained that 2 of their contractors were fired because they wanted to write code in C#.NET. My guess is that they were actually trying to write an application that could be maintained by industry standards. So I was thrown at the defect problem because the Diamond Resorts manager was now desperate to put out fires she created by firing contract workers from Experis.

    Back to the office a day later and I was moved from the temporary desk to a small utility room with a dirty table and crap computer. In addition looking around the room I saw nothing but H1 Visa workers from India talking to each other in their native language.

    I told the Diamond Resort manager that there were too many problems. That I should be given a desk like the rest of her staff and that the original agreement I made with her manager to do the PL/SQL work should be honored.

    A real disgrace!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Experis clean up your act and stop taking advantage of contract workers by throwing them into problems that you created.

    Diamond Resorts shame on you for you lack of respect for contract workers.

    I worked at Experis as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They have regular clients that trust them. Paychecks are regular. The contract I have represented my expected market value accurately.

    Cons

    During my contract, Manpower became Experis. I was not notified of address, phone, or contact changes and was effectively on my own. Experis never contacted me during the entire one year contract.
