I worked at Spherion full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

great environment. they did actually know how to connect on a personal level. great work-life balance afforded to the employees on the account I was on.

Cons

my account did not offer benefits (no PTO) to Service Desk agents, even though they were the ones that took the majority of the hits. if you were not interested in technical certificates then they didn't have anything to offer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make your offerings for training more varied and please, please, PLEASE stop treating your Level I agents poorly. If you have multiple people on a contract and the only people that do not have the availability of time off then you need to rethink what you are doing.

    I have been working at Spherion full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They will place you in good companies that at least treat you better than other temp agencies

    Cons

    You can NEVER take a day off under any cirsumstance. The recruiters are very rude and judge you if you do need to take a day off. Oh, and they will tell you that the company you're assigned to is interested in hiring you, when they really aren't

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees and hire nice people to work in your offices. Ones that will let employees take a day off without hassel. It's only your company's reputation on the line.
