    I worked at Cadre Services (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked internally at Cadre for a few years. It had great management style and a wonderful learning environment. It was always a positive environment with lots of advice on how to better ourselves as a company overall. Our number one goal was to satisfy the customers- whether it was the Client or the Applicant. No micro-managing at all, very well managed with lots of communication from the CEO, to the Director of Staffing, even amongst our teams. It was very heavily based on teamwork and doing the best we can to service our applicants and clients in everything we do. When someone would call us looking for a job, it was truly amazing to watch the whole process happen from start to finish. I felt that management was there for me when I needed to ask questions, would give raises as they said they would, provided great benefits, and would be flexible for situations that would arise. I knew they cared for me as an individual and my success as a not only a Cadre employee, but as a person no matter where my career led me.

    Cons

    None, it if wasn't for a change in career due to my interest, I would still be working there!

    Advice to Management

    No advice- keep up the great work! I am thankful this business has been around for 23 years to service the Oshkosh, Appleton, Green Bay, and Madison areas. Thank you for helping me grow into the person I am today and teaching me lifelong skills of the importance of communication and teamwork.

    Pros

    The recruiters communicate with you very well and show dedicated interest in placing applicants into positions. This is one agency of the hundreds in Wisconsin that actually put forth the effort to please all outside stakeholders.
    "This is the only agency that's not bias towards applicants".

    Cons

    The company needs to expand by opening other locations and building new contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Cadre has impeccable customer service and a great culture, your services are compliant with your mission statement. It would be very beneficial to the company to expand, you'll out grow your competitors.

    I have been working at Cadre Services as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are not a number. You have a specific contact who knows you and you can reach out to with any questions.

    Cons

    Position opportunities are not always as broad as what a larger staffing agency might offer.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be personally knowledgeable about clients. It really promotes our confidence in you as a staffing agency.

    I have been working at Cadre Services full-time

    Pros

    They were very helpful in finding a position just right for me. They would always be supportive and listened to my needs.

    Cons

    Temporary employment in my case wasn't ideal. It would have been nice to get hired on permanently but that is not Cadre's fault.

    I worked at Cadre Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are fantastic, for the most part. It is a great environment overall, working with great Clients and people.

    Cons

    Extremely micro-managing and I have heard from friends still there it is only getting worse!! They promise you pay raises that you won't see and they try to monitor everything you do!

    Advice to Management

    If you say you are going to do something, do it. If you trust your own management techniques and the people you hire you shouldn't have to micro manage. Have trust in your Staff and pay them for what they are worth! My sources tell me you have a lot of unhappy people there if only for those two reasons! Pay the staff you have what they deserve before opening a new branch...oh, sorry, too late for that. And I heard there are favorites, that is why some get special hours and others don't. And now they get to help the management micro-manage what they don't have time to do them selves. That is just sad!

    I have been working at Cadre Services as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They pay for your assessment tests. That's about it.

    Cons

    They work to place you absolutely anywhere, whether it's a good fit or not, only to meet their individual placement quotas. If your assignment ends at one place before the contract is up for any reason, they drop you without talking to you first.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Actually work on placing them based on their skills, not based on whatever makes you the most money.

    Pros

    Flexible job to work on a contract - by - contract basis.

    Cons

    Staffing Managers are only concerned about making their placement quotas and making their comission on placing an employee in a contract job. The contract employee makes only a small portion of the hourly rate paid to staffing service. Staffing managers are not honest. No personal intrigrity or business ethics!

    Advice to Management

    Teach your staffing managers the MEANING of honesty and REQUIRE honesty in the behavior of each staffing manager.
