Was Ok Except for Incompetent President of Sparrow Enterprises

Branch Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Labor Finders full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat Co-Workers and Area Directors and the opportunity to find people a job. Made it easy to sleep knowing you were helping employers and employees

ConsThe President. Not Smart,,, Motivation through fear not leadership. He said one thing and did another. Half the time could not remember what he had said. Used company emails to push political agendas, Let people work knowing they had stolen from company, Made promises that he didn't keep, offered bonuses then recanted, all the while claiming to be a born again Christian.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe president needs to step down and let a real leader lead.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Labor Finders: A Great Place To Work Until The Industry Tanked

Branch Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Labor Finders

ProsPeople at home office are nice, there's a family atmosphere within the franchises, and they do take their hourly workers seriously most of the time. Compensation is competitive, time off plans are fair. For almost ten years, Labor Finders was my ideal job.

ConsPoor upper management to branch-level communications, head-in-the-sand approach to problem solving in current economic climate. I spent more than two years telling my franchise owner that the staffing industry in my city was about to take a nosedive. He did not take me seriously until my numbers dropped - then I was fired after almost a decade of faithful service (I didn't take vacations, took a pay cut, etc.). If my boss had listened to me for the two years previous - during which time he spent less than a week in my city - he would have been aware of the economic climate here, and I probably could have implemented any of the several plans I had to save his profits and my job.

Advice to Senior ManagementLabor Finders franchises are in dire need of district or regional managers to keep an eye on geographically diverse branch locations. The profit margin goals are unrealistic in this economy when other staffing agencies are undercutting by ten percent or more. And frankly, folks, you need to get out there and spend some time in the offices. Fewer motivational seminars - more "feet on the street" attention might have helped you before I and others lost their jobs and you lost money.

Labor Finders has been loyal to me and supplied jobs when they had them available.

Temporary Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Fredericksburg, VA

I have been working at Labor Finders

ProsGood backup job. If you have trouble getting employment anywhere else they will take you and put you to work. Staff is friendly and accommodating. They will pay you the same day. They give good driving directions and information about what to expect from client. I like that they checked up on me on one of the jobs I had. I appreciated that when one client sent me back within a couple hours, they were very nice about it and didn't make me feel like a loser.

ConsAs this is mostly a LABOR company, not too many jobs to be had for office positions. The pay is really abysmal.

Advice to Senior ManagementImpressed with management's sensitivity and professionalism. Pay people more fairly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
