  1. Temp... not so much

    Former Employee - Office Temp in Huntsville, AL

    I worked at Snelling

    Pros

    Hourly rate was good ($12). The situation was pleasant; everyone was so friendly. People even talked to me on the elevator.

    Cons

    I have temped with this company before and had nearly continuous work. This time, not so much. My first job was VERY part time, and only three weeks. Disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't advertise for temps unless you actually have jobs for them.

    Pros

    Worked at a manufacturing company in metro Detroit.

    Cons

    Snelling was mainly interested in placing me at positions where I already had the experience and not to occupations that I had trained for and sought to enter. Some of their clients main emphasis during the interview process, was how do you react to working a few month assignment. It was their intention to work you a few months again and then lay you off.

    Advice to Management

    Don't use people up and throw them away.

    Pros

    Well known company and brand.

    Cons

    Most are franchised and operate as a small business. Makes for bad and expensive benefits structure.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your employees better.

    Pros

    My coworkers were very nice and supportive.

    Cons

    Sarcastic/Rude owner who doesn't understand the process involved in staffing. The pay is MUCH lower than other staffing manager positions in the area. Old broken equipment in the office, and a very high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the micro-managing, extreme sarcasm and rudeness. A basic understanding of the staffing process would help. Maybe try your hand at something else. Commissions being a month or two late on a regular basis wasn't the best either.
