    I worked at Express Employment Professionals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very organized and easy to work for various corporations. I was able to "test-drive" a position with an organization to determine if it was the right choice for both parties.

    Cons

    The first contact with them was very impersonal and cold. Had I not already secured my position, I may not have continued their intake process.

    Advice to Management

    Public relations skill training.

    Pros

    The employees are great! They care about all the associates and give everyone a fresh start. Earn their trust, and they will work hard to find the right job for you!

    Cons

    Owner manager continues to add job duties with no additional compensation. Great ladies to work with, but very poorly managed. Owner creates unnecessary drama between employees to make certain they don't get too close to each other. If you have a family or children, this is not the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees what they are worth. If the numbers go up, compensation should reflect the increase of income. Don't put words in people's mouths, & treat people with respect.
