Pros

Spherion was a good place to learn what a larger company has to offer after coming from a very small staffing firm previously. Lots of tools provide, reasonable budgets, and expectations for a seasoned recruiter.

Cons

Very political environment when it came to Regional Management. It semed that they were not as interested in the day to day operations or training of new, less experienced staff. I saw new hires come in and basically get thrown on a desk without really knowing what they were doing.

Advice to Management

Get back to the basics (training) with new hires that don't have staffing experience. I saw too many of my peers fail while I was there.

    Pros

    Good Pay (sometimes)
    Placement at nice facilities

    Cons

    Placements are sketchy if they do at all
    No appreciation for employees
    They can call you out of the blue and end your contract (and they will with no type of notice)

    Advice to Management

    EMPLOYEE RENTENTION!!!!!!!


  2. Overall a good company but sometimes out of touch with it's employees.

    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 Management

    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.
