    I have been working at WorldLink full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Consistent and growing client base, year after year. 2nd Fastest growing company in Dallas (per Dallas 100) and adding offices like wildfire. Exclusive arrangements with clients (no dreaded VMS). Very little competition = more placements. Recruiters have the ability to interact directly with hiring managers. Consultants are treated with respect and most receive full benefits, whenever possible. Internal business practices (Big Data and Cloud) are taking off. Ability to make large commissions on Perm placements. Work hard, play hard environment. Solid financial backing. Never mass-layoffs, unlike some competitors who spend millions in severance packages just to fire people. Tons of room for advancement. Company was founded on risk-taking. No risk, no reward.

    Cons

    If you don’t work hard, you won’t fit in. No one will hold your hand and ask you to take on more responsibility, it’s expected. Growth is always a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the family oriented, fun environment.

    Pros

    People are friendly, but changes across department. Too much of a "staffing company" vibe can be discouraging sometimes.

    Cons

    Not the best in terms of pay package or benefits.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing good for a decent sized staffing company overall. Just continue doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    This company is great for someone fresh out of college. Lots of opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth. I expected an advancement on a few occasions but was never allowed to take on more responsibilities. Too much office politics, all to impress the management team! in the beginning, it was great. But overall, they are not a company that really care for their employees and did I mentioned I was underpaid? Yup!

    Advice to Management

    Take a look around you, there are other leaders emerging. Don't treat us as your minions.

    I have been working at WorldLink full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family environment, some of the nicest people you would work with in the staffing industry. No one standing over your shoulder. Can work on any position you want. Virtual desktop, work life balance. Located in a great area. They hire genuinely nice and smart people there.

    Cons

    Worst commission structure in the staffing industry by far. Nepotism runs a muck. Many people in high places who have no clue what they are doing. They can't keep a sales team. Ran off a CEO. The family treats everyone like they are expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure people can do their job before you promote them.

    I have been working at WorldLink full-time

    Pros

    They have a very good client and the projects are really long.

    Cons

    If you are not a citizen of USA, then it's not a place to work. They promise you to get your visa status taken care but trust me they wont do any paper work untill very last min of your Visa status. Not a good company to work risking your status in USA.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the promises you made to your employeer.

    I worked at WorldLink full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None at all!! If you are a new grad, you'll get in quick, but make almost no money, and also be replacing someone who knows the job 1000 times better than you... Who is already getting undercut.. So yeah college grads... Pros are you'll get a job here and barely make rent .

    Cons

    BAD management !! bad ethics!!! Let's just say, that know your rights as a labor in the state you are in, and don't let them bully you around. They are UNETHICAL bunch. They will ruin your records for a price of candy if it comes to it. It is a ridiculous place to work in. No growth!! Benefits are lower than industry standard. I worked there for multiple years.. And this never improved. They short change new grads , get their work done for cheap with no quality what so ever. politics ... Wow!!! If you are any higher than a minion who pushes buttons, Better watch out, there is always a target on your back. You have a lot of enemies. HR is incompetent. They do not even know their laws . Or they choose to ignore that. Did I say un ethical ? Here say it again: Unethical!!!! Unhealthy environment to work in. Beware! They are a racist , sexist bunch!!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they say that you are doing something wrong. Do everyone the favor of following the labor laws. The people who work for you are people , not slaves, stop treating them like that.

    HR is useless, a group of people only focused on paperwork with no dedication on real human advice.
