    I worked at Staffmark

    Pros

    Friendly staffmark staff. Sent me to a warehouse position where it seemed to crunch out numbers more than the quality of work. People at the factory were nice and friendly.

    Cons

    Getting paid through staffmark is kind of a pain. The warehouse time off requests were kind of ridiclous. They placed a lockdown on certain weeks when I certainly needed time off. Luckily they approved it anyways. If you were one minute late to the warehouse, they would dock you points.

    I worked at Staffmark

    Pros

    Very good company to work for in the staffing industry. Company leadership is very responsive and supports the field at all times.

    Cons

    Due to the changing environment in the staffing industry and safety. Staffmark is slowly moving out of the light industrial field while others company are staying in, so this is giving other staffing companies and edge in the market for a full service provider.

    I have been working at Staffmark

    Pros

    Training in various areas is complete and provided often for employees within the Staffmark offices. The trainers are quite experienced and will gladly provide additional assistance when requested. Technological improvements have helped streamline operations to help lighten the load of recruiters and operations personnel. Clients love the Staffmark firm do to our ability to satisfy their personnel requests.

    Cons

    - Very little pay for the managers and recruiters.
    - Staffmark does not provide enough staff per office. Employees feel overwhelmed and underappreciated
    - Expectations are extremely high with little reward. For example, you can bring in multiple new accounts and revenue as a recruiter and fill temp to perm requisitions, but are NEVER be compensated for these efforts. The commission structure is not as competitive with other agencies.
    - Incentives are laughable. If you win a contest, mere $5 gift cards serve as a reward.
    -Morale is low because everyone is so overworked. Upper management does not care about work/life balance. When away from the office, (vacation, medical leave, sick day, me time) you will receive calls from management that can wait upon return to the office.
    -Some individuals within upper management make poor decisions, but are quick to shift blame to others when that poor decision affects revenue growth and/or operations.
    - Ethics are questionable
    -Company is slow to promote minorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those at the branch level. Actually spend a day in the office to understand the tremendous work load and make changes where recruiters, operations, and managers can actually focus on recruitment/sales. Insert a better payment structure that is commensurate with education and responsibilities. Please eliminate current commission plan where no reward is given to recruiters/operations for bringing in new accounts, revenue, and placements for temp to hire. Please make more of an effort to provide rewards for individual effort as opposed to obvious favoritism. Stop overpromising clients of our ability to quickly fill orders with 50 or more individuals when we do not have the right personnel or the number of individuals in place at the branch to fulfill these needs. It places tremendous pressure on those at the bottom of the tree and encourages feelings of disgust and low morale.
