    I have been working at Sparks Personnel Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    After recently adopting a great new company name, logo, website, and more, this is a very exciting time to work for Sparks Group! What began as a regionally based, family-owned staffing agency, is now a full-scope provider of technical, professional, creative and administrative talent to some of the biggest and best companies to work for in MD, VA and DC.

    Cons

    Limited incentive programs for those in corporate/shared services roles.

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sparks Personnel Services.

    Interview

    This is a hiring agency. I found one of the positions they were hiring for on their website and got the interview scheduled the same day I applied. Lots of paperwork and the woman interviewing me actually interviewed me for the wrong position (and I did ask her whether she was sure this was the position I applied for), and told me so when I was filling out tax forms. She then hurriedly explained the position I wanted was not open, that they changed some of their requirements, and pretty much told me she'd do her best to vouch for me. I left feeling like while I gave a good interview...it was useless.
