    Pros

    Pay and benefits were exceptional. I worked on a contract position and heard from a manager every few months to see how things were going. Other than that, left alone to do my job.

    Cons

    As good as only hearing from a manager every few months sounds, it would have been nice for them to check with the firm I was contracted to and let me know how they thought I was doing in the job I was there for. Nice to get some feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Would recommend the managers contact their contract employees at least monthly just to check up on things and provide feedback.

    Pros

    Culture is the best part of Kforce. They are extremely team oriented with a strong sense of integrity.

    Cons

    The biggest con is that it's not an 8-5 job. In order to make money, you need to put in the hours.

    Advice to Management

    They are currently adding more incentives and better salaries to keep retention, however, I would recommend still remembering your tenured employees.

    Pros

    Superior service from recruiting process through regular follow up with consultants.
    Representatives meet with consultants on a regular basis and actually listen
    Easy to deal with, very different from other staffing firms

    Cons

    Just like most staffing agencies, you do not get paid for holidays off. This is tough when you are contracted to a company that takes a long break during the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change the way your representatives work with keeping in touch with consultants. This is one main reason why I would re-consider a contract job through Kforce.

    Pros

    Fairly straight-forward approach. Once job offered, process was seamless. Recruiter was easily accessible and returned emails/voicemails

    Cons

    After contract abruptly ended by client, recruiter acted as if they were not aware after a "checking in" call hours before getting notified by client that the contract was ending in 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Honesty builds better relationships and learn to follow up on jobs offered and submitted for.

  10. Good assignment, benefits ok

    Pros

    Assignment is good, ability to have an FSA, flexible benefits.

    Cons

    Medical insurance for contractors is costly. Also, benefits are spread across several websites, not consolidated in one site. There seems to be a revolving door in contractor support - I was contacted by at least half dozen different people saying they were my contact. Very confusing to know who to talk to with issues.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the contacts - when you onboard a new consultant, assign one person as their go-to for questions. Also, a single location (and login) for pay stubs, w2/w4, FSA, other benefits would be nice.

    Not always clear management direction.

    Advice to Management

    HR department is very slow.
