From college graduate to administrative professional to top salesperson

Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
Coon Rapids, MN

I have been working at Pro Staff full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWhen I graduated college looking for work was very competitive. Outside of my internship I didn't have much experience outside of waiting tables. Pro Staff saw my potential and gave me a chance in a front desk administrative positions. Four months later I was promoted and continued to climb the ladder into a great sales role. This is a great place to get your foot in the door and grow with a growing company.

ConsI started in a temp-to-hire position, so I was nervous about being a "temp." However, it was a great experience, and I was hired on as a permanent employee after four months.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone - the leadership and management team work really hard at making it a great place to work and are always open to new ideas.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fantastic company to work for- Great Energy and Great people!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Des Moines, IA

I have been working at Pro Staff full-time for less than a year

ProsI really enjoy the team environment- a lot of positive energy! I also like how they are more selective with their candidates compared to other agencies I have worked at. They expect the same work ethic from their contract employees as they do their internal employees and that really adds value to contract employees that other agencies view as just "temps". The company also gives you the tools you need to grow professionally.

ConsNo cons at this time

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what your doing and promoting the positive energy in your teams- it really sets you a part from the reset!

Once great company, now a shadow of what it was

Branch Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Pro Staff full-time for more than 5 years

ProsA lot of autonomy in running your own market
Great administrative support from headquarters such as payroll, HR, legal counsel, marketing

ConsLost their soul when main founder (Jeff Dobbs) passed away
Too much nepotism at the top level
Grew too fast during dot com boom and then bailed right when the recovery was at hand
A lot of waste in spending habits of top management (really, is it always necessary to show up to meetings in a limo and then talk about cost cutting?)

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your behaviors match your message
Probably not a good idea to hire family members to top management positions they aren't qualified to have

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
