It has been fast paced, exciting, and time well spent.

ProsWe're the perfect size company. We have the capabilities to do everything that our national competitors do (Processing, State/Fed Tax Filing, Timekeeping, Job Costing, etc. etc.) only BETTER. Reason being... we're not so large that we require a 1-800 # with an automated system. Each of our clients have a dedicated processor who they can contact directly with any questions or needs. The PERSONAL touch and customer service that we're able to provide our clients make selling our services easy. There's a great company culture, an awesome group of hard working people who work hard. The owner/management are great leaders who have expectations of their team, lead by example, and both recognize and reward hard work and dedication.

ConsI wouldn't consider it a con, however, it is something that some ma see as a draw back. The company is growing at a fast rate and there are things changing all the time. While the changes are all for the better, I know a lot of people can't deal with change very well.

Advice to Senior ManagementExcited for everything ahead of the EH team!

Up and Coming company

ProsSome of the best reasons to work at Extra Help is the ability to define your future. Extra Help has expanded in the last 3 years to the Edwardsville area and just recently opened an office in downtown St. Louis. We have the ability to provide not only employment services to our clients but also payroll services and HR services. This is a company that cares about its clients and looks for ways to help them grow their businesses.

ConsIf there is a con for Extra Help it is the fact that this is a smaller company and the training program is one that you have to do a lot of self directed training.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on formalizing procedures as the business continues to expand in the St. Louis and Metro East market. Continue to hire great people!

First Impressions Can Be Deceiving

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Extra Help

ProsThey do provide a decent pay (in terms of base pay only). Being a small company has it's perks and they have been in business for some time.

ConsThe titles of Manager and Director are used loosely. The level of immaturity and lack of respect found within the offices is intense. Promises are not kept and you are expected to fall into line. It is stated that ideas and opinions are wanted yet management would prefer you to do as you are told. Not worth anyone's time and definitely not worthy of making anyone's resume.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
