I worked at Spherion full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good people, strong understanding of RPO, variety of clients, good workplace flexibility - I worked here on the Virtual Recruiting Team, which was part of the RPO division. It provided great flexibility and access to work on numerous Fortune 100 accounts. The management on this specific team (I can't speak for others), was very fair, and I thought they looked out for the best interest of their employees. The pay was less than competitors, but I also felt in exchange, they tried to keep their recruiters busy during lean times where many competitors, just had lay offs.

Cons

Issues integrating different lines of business, a lot of turnover on the Executive level which often resulted in many changes of philosophy

    Pros

    The interview process and screening is conducted professionally.

    Cons

    Poor rapport between worksite and home office. Completely disengaged from employee concerns. No electronic time-clock. Late with uniforms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allocate management of employees better. Your client is capable of being dishonest about employee performance. Hiring then firing on a whim and being dishonest to recoup unemployment funds is in no way acceptable behavior for a company entrusted to provide employment.
