    I have been working at Protingent Staffing full-time

    Pros

    The ability to join a growing team of professionals and really feel included in the operations and experiences of a rapidly expanding company are great. This is a fast paced environment that has always kept me focused and challenged. HR has been wonderful and are always there to help with any questions or needs I might have. The leadership is all about pushing this company forward to enhance the lives of the employees.

    Cons

    Growing pains can be tough! As Protingent goes from a small local family operated company to a multi million dollar ESOP staffing firm there have been some challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not lose sight of the reason people love working for us and with us - the close knit vibe and 'we actually care' attitude. As the company grows it can be easy to let the little guy fall behind.

    I have been working at Protingent Staffing as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Adept recruiters, helpful & friendly support staff, good benefits and salary. My recruiter was smart, and paid close attention to finding jobs that matched specifically what I wanted.

    Cons

    They take a percentage of your hourly rate, and this amount is not exposed to you. That means you don't actually know how much you're "worth" in subsequent full time negotiations etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Issue fleece jackets instead of vests if you actually want people to wear them. It's free advertising.

    I worked at Protingent Staffing full-time

    Pros

    Good base pay. For those brave soles looking to own a franchise of a small family run staffing firm, here is your opportunity. Good upper management, experienced, friendly etc.

    Cons

    Nepotism can be an issue as this is a family owned and run company. Disconnect between upper and lower management. Urged to charge clients extra high fees now, rather than a long term view.

    I have been working at Protingent Staffing

    Pros

    People here are very kind to help you, and salary is ok to compare with contract positions. And the clients of this company are good and high quality. So this is a good place to find contract jobs.

    Cons

    contract positions, sometimes cannot guarantee your future.
    And for this point, company doesn't do a lot care about contract employee's career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some more benefits to contract position, and more details of those benefits.
