Pros

If you're new to the area and looking for a way to get insight into the bigger local companies, a short-term assignment at Corestaff is a great start. Within a week, they had a position for me at one of the big area employers - and basically only communicate with me to send my paychecks. There's very little middle-man interference, and my Corestaff hiring manager checks in to make sure everything is going well.

Cons

They have very a very poor insurance plan. Other downsides are common with any temporary staffing firm: as a contract employee, you may feel like you don't get enough respect when you're at the job site of your assignment. It's tough to only know your job status a few months out.

Advice to Management

Look into other health insurance options; do more to encourage hired contractors to take the classes you offer.

    Pros

    This is a temporary agency with offices in cities through the country. One of the best things about working for such a company is that you have flexibility. If you are just starting out or just need to keep your foot in the working world during a downturn this is a great place. I have found the opportunities they have placed me in to be very challenging and enjoyable. Unfortunately, so far the pay side of things has not been as satisfying, but I have view that as a tradeoff for the moment because of the career advancing opportunities they have placed me in.

    Cons

    The definite downside is the compensation. If money is the most important thing for you, you might want to try another company or try negotiating well with them. The way the system works is that they find you contracts with other companies and negotiate a pay rate with them. They then take a substantial amount of your pay, and leave you with very little. It is also very hard to negotiate, because you don't know what they are charging the company. The most you can do is to research what salaries are for similar positions and try to use that as a negotiating tool.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more equitable pay structure.

    Pros

    It's a good place to work when you are fresh out of school. The hiring process is simple and they do not require a lot of experience like other companies. The jobs here are suppose to give employees training and experience to move on to better positions. The overtime is good which compensates for lack of benefits.

    Cons

    Since this is a contracting job, there is no benefit, no vacation time and no 401k retirement plan. The job is by term so there is no stability. There is little contact between employee and employer because the employee works at the customers' site. Therefore, one cannot get a good recommended letter for future employment.

    Advice to Management

    Could be better at communicating with the employees.
