    Pros

    Once you are an associate with express, they immediately start calling you with job offers. They will find you jobs above minimum wage without experience. You get to try different types of jobs.

    Cons

    Some of the assignments last only a few days or weeks. There might be a delay between two assignments. You are always wondering when an assignment will end.

    Pros

    Flexibility. You can accept a job and if it isn't what you were expecting, they can find you something closer to your expectations.

    Cons

    Being a temporary placement service, the pay isn't as good as I'd like.

    Culture depends on owner. Success is yours if you use the "biz in a box" tools that Express offers!

    I worked at Express Employment Professionals full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to connect with multiple industries, learn about different management role buying styles, and the overall difference in transaction-based sales and true Business Development or INFLUENCING sales.

    Cons

    These are franchises and they pay 40 cents on the dollar for the Express name. You won't get rich working for someone struggling to get rich. Go into it with the goal of gaining knowledge and experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is hard to advise on this as all are managed individually. However, they are usually small, family-owned and run offices. Even in an outside sales role you can get caught in the middle of some family drama. Try to set clear boundaries and hold the owner to the "Express Way" in your reviews, etc. It is easier to track your progress if they are consistent and you have less risk of an emotional termination of employment.

    I worked at Express Employment Professionals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They helped me out when things got rough, were there when I had questions or concerned, kept me up to date on changes and situations with the company.

    Cons

    Once my position was ended due to change in the companies direction, they wouldn't return my calls or offer me any other work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if you have nothing to report, return the calls of people trying to reach you. That's just good PR.

    Pros

    You can tell they work hard to drum up client employers. Clean offices friendly staff, fair interview, simple pay process and some benefits are available thanks Obamacare

    Cons

    It's as good as the number of jobs they can find you. Low paying jobs for the most part. I have no other cons other than that.
