    Former Employee - PC Support Technician

    I worked at Kforce (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great contract work, opportunity for immediate advancement to those who have advanced skills. For example if you take a pc tech support job for $16/hr, they may offer you a team lead position for $18/hr if you have pertinent ceritifcations . As far a benefis, as a contractor you have none.

    Cons

    Even though you are on contract, you are taxed as if you are a W2 employee. They might do 1099's now. It has been a while since I have worked for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer the 1099 tax filing option, if you have not done so already

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Kforce full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with a great team and have a great boss who is always there to help with any questions or issues we have. Made 50K more in year 2 with the company than my previous entry-level operations position I had out of school. You certainly work hard and the line of work is not for everyone (10 hours a day, make a ton of phone calls and interview a lot of people) but if that doesn't bother you, you can make a lot of money. Also since there are 60+ offices throughout the country (in most major markets) employee experiences will vary greatly depending on management, the local market and opportunities but I can only speak to what I experience first hand and have no complaints.

    Cons

    If a client pays with a credit card it directly affects the producer with a high fee associated. Alot of operations were sent to the Phillipines including AR which led to some confusion and frustration, but alot of the ops are coming back to the US to streamine processes. Some offices will have high turnover, inexperienced sales/recruitnig team which can limit the money you make (look for tenured producer's, my office's IT and FA Directors have both been with the company over 10+ years which is huge for long term clients/relationships and consistent accounts).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
