    Spaghetti approach to hiring. Hire a lot of recruiters and sales people and see who fits.

    Pros

    -Kforce offers a salary your first 6 months then it's have salary, half draw
    -Large, stable staffing firm
    -Work-life balance, they don't expect you to work grueling hours

    Cons

    -They don't want to give you time to ramp up. Most of the senior recruiters and sales people took a long time to establish a book of business and make decent numbers and income. Now since they are publicly traded if you're not performing within a few months you are canned.
    -They are really cheap with everything. Minimal perks. You have to pay for parking.
    -Training is limited and ineffective

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Offer better training and development
    -Have the middle managers actually manage and not simply produce useless sales reports.
    -Create a culture of encouragement. It's very competitive in a negative way where you are put up against the people sitting next to you.

    Current Employee - Account Manager in Reston, VA

    Pros

    It is a rewarding job where the mentality "work hard; play hard" is kept. Tough goals, but great leadership will help you get to where you want to be. I have really grown and learned many skills that will help me with any job that I will have in the future. If you put in the hard work, you will see it in your paycheck.

    Cons

    High turnover. Fresh out of college kids (I don't want to hear about your kegger over the weekend...). Open cubes

    Pros

    Loved the work and fellow techs, made lifelong connections. pay rate was spot on for my position Site Lead,

    Cons

    left a lot of techs out in the cold when contracts are over, Hard to get in touch with recruiters, call backs are almost non-existent. Ask you to take on-line Prove-It tests even though you have worked in the field over 10 years and have Certs to back it up..

    The recruiters for this contractor do not correctly represent the job descriptions.

    Pros

    The interview process is not to challenging, and there are plenty of positions posted.

    Cons

    The recruiters do not properly inform the contractors of the clients expectations. I went into the contract expecting to work according to discussion I had at the interview, the client had other expectations. Needless to say the contract ended early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please disclose to the candidate the real expectations of the client.

    High Turnover

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good experience for phone based positions.

    Cons

    Takes about 2 years to see commission even if you are good at your job. High turnover makes life stressful. 10 hour work days make for a terrible work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like they are one of the team as opposed to just another person you will probably not see in a couple of months. This does not help anyone.
