    I have been working at Hays full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Growth potential is unreal for both producers and managers.
    The company pays very well compared to other staffing companies
    Newer offices look great and are well equipped
    Senior Management truly cares about field employees and visit offices regularly to support them, not critique them.
    US operations are growing, so plenty of opportunity to have your voice heard.

    Cons

    US operations are in a growth phase, so growing pains are to be expected.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hays (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Hays required that I drive to their office to schedule an interview, which took two minutes and could have been done easily over the phone. On my second trip, the interview ended up being a panel with six people interviewing me. This was extremely unnecessary for an entry level position. I never heard anything back from the hiring manager, I was just told by a friend that worked there that they hired someone for the position. It was extremely unprofessional to not even receive an email letting me know that the position was filled after taking the time to come to the office twice. I will never recommend anyone to look into this company
