    Pros

    The person at my hiring agency was professional and very proactive in finding assignments for me. She was extremely helpful and offered suggestions for how to present myself and talk with employers, which other employment agencies might not make the effort to do. Also in comparison to other employment agencies, Spherion was EXTREMELY prompt in returning phone calls or emails. They also provided all the information needed about a site placement in as complete a package as possible. I really enjoyed my experience working through Spherion.

    Cons

    None attributable to the company
