    I worked at Aspire Staffing Group full-time

    Pros

    I would say the people, but the truth is there were only a handful of people I enjoyed working with

    Cons

    High school like atosphere Nepotism COO sleeps with his employee. CEO is clueless and hides his head in the sand to real issues. He I s played like a marionette puppet by the COO. Views employees as assembly line workers that can be replaced. Shady employers, tell clients they have services they do not. Had to take on a new name to get away from the horrible reputation of the previous company, Aspire....

    "High employee turnover"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Washington, PA

      I worked at Aspire Staffing Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Co-workers were great to work with. Real team players and enjoyable. They cover each other's back.

      Cons

      Company has high turnover of employees. 3 months and a new round of people start. Difficult for the organization to gain momentum. Recommend real training for staff if you plan to hire new people to the industry. Most were given a little training but had to figure it out on their own. Sink or swim environment

      Advice to Management

      Hire more experienced staff. When hiring junior staff you will need to give them more time to ramp up and train them. Be more involved in selling the company and not just enjoying what employees do to make you money. Owner seems well connected but shares leads with only a few chosen employees.
