    Pros

    The staff at Cadre was very professional and helpful from the moment I walked in the door. They treated me as priority and kept me updated with available employment opportunities. They listened to my requests and worked with my skillset to find the perfect position for me. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with Cadre and would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking to seek a professional career!

    Cons

    You'll need to be patient in your search for success.

    Pros

    Have a great "come-on"-- and polite interviewers.

    Cons

    They state that they only want the "cream of the crop" but define that as mere metrics rather than candidate education or cultural fit. I suspect that the companies that they represent don't only want servile drones, eschewing anyone with drive or creativity. This is not a good conduit to a 21st century job. Their hiring techniques are very backward and not cutting edge.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit for companies with an eye to repeat business from those companies. Metrics do not tell the entire story of a candidate. Retention and loyalty are demonstrated by more than numbers. I believe that is what employers really want. Try to deliver that.

    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 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.

    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!

    "Poor Feedback - Not Honest w/ Employees"

    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.
