    Pros

    Flexibility of being able to work with multiple locations since they're a worldwide company with offices in almost every major market.

    Cons

    Base salary is a bit lower than market rate but the uncapped bonus opportunities make up for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to allow for field employees to have more say in the daily operations so to allow for company growth based on what works for each market.

    Each franchise is different. Where I was, were burdened by deadlines, crises and threats, hard to learn the business

    Pros

    Corporate has a great plan, to put people to work. Thorough training, that is ongoing and accessible.

    Cons

    Much of the training is an information dump to weed through. Each franchise has its own culture, depending on the tone the owner sets. Wide disparity between offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your franchises and find out why there is so much turnover at some. Not all represent corporate values well.

    Pros

    Express provides extensive training and tools to perform your job. My manager was great and really took care of her employees.

    Cons

    Upper management set unrealistic metrics that were expected to be met. Commission was not offered and salary was low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meet with employees who are actually growing the business to set realistic goals.

    Pros

    They have good jobs(clients)but after submitting your app for a position they put on Indeed.com, they never interview you.

    Cons

    They want you to call in all the time to be available but never call you for a job. Never.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit posting jobs on job sites to get people to apply. And then when they apply for a position and call about it, they tell you if THEY feel you are qualified they will call you but never do.

    Care more about the clients than the employees

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

    Pros

    They pay on time, and if there is an error, it is fixed quickly.
    Decent health insurance.

    Cons

    When you are a temp, it benefits you and the employer. If you do not like your assignment and quit without giving 2 weeks notice, you will be banned from working for another client through Express. A temp should not have to give notice as if they are a permanent employee.
