    I have been working at Barrett Business Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a work environment that encourages and rewards self starters. Each branch is run not unlike a franchise; your team's performance is directly reflected on the bottom line of the Branch's P&L which then translates to profit sharing potential. I have read all the negative posts before me and I will tell you these were predominately individuals who need constant supervision and a different environment. It doesn't make them bad people, just the wrong fit for this organization. If you're smart & talented, like a challenge, autonomy and are a self starter, then I highly recommend you consider a career with BBSI.

    Cons

    I wish I would have joined sooner!

    Advice to Management

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Barrett Business Services (Folsom, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Referred by recruiter, went to BBSI, met with supervisor in their conference and talked about my experiences and the type of work they do at BBSI. Interview was pretty low key and casual. Interviewer was very nice.
