    I worked at Horizon Staffing Services as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They are very kind in there
    Seem to really want to help
    Professional
    Business atmosphere
    Gave very vague but okay tips on helping to find a job (if you didn't know the basics and were going on your first interview ever)

    Cons

    Never truly helped find a job for me despite their guarantee in our initial conversation.
    They just took my information such as ss card and resume and did nothing with it
    I always had to call them to find out about the "jobs" that they supposedly lined up for me
    Was not very honest on whether i was a good fit or not for the jobs or else im sure i wouldve got atleast 1 interview
    Not consistent at all
    I had to look for a job on my own and didn't have to waste my time giving my information and coming for an "interview" that lasted over an hour because they overbooked for that day

    Advice to Management

    Be honest about the job opportunities

  3. "Not a dependable job, IF you have to pay bills."

    Pros

    Provided a weekly pay check.

    Cons

    NEVER knew how MANY or FEW hours would work in a week. On clock for 23 minutes 1 day. Out of a year being an employee, worked 40 hours 1 time. NO CONSISTENCY. NOT dependable to work 8 hours on any work day. Have gone in,ONLY to be sent home after 2 hours of work. Hours vary from week to week. Supervisor NOT trustworthy. Office help NOT any help at all.

    Advice to Management

    Do your own ON THE JOB TRAINING. You will be surprised at the UNPROFESSIONAL behavior and treatment of the employees at these, WHAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE, places of work.

    I worked at Horizon Staffing Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Horizon provided weekly pay benefits via direct deposit. I did not experience any issues involving my pay while on assignment. Pay was always accurate and on time.

    Cons

    Therr were many times I was unable to reach my representative. There was a lot of internal turn over so it was often difficult to get anything resolved. Communication between the agency and the client seemed limited while communication between the agency and associates on assignment seemed nonexistent. We never saw any of our staffing team members once placed on assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have a presence on site with your associates. This will minimise the number of communication issues while boosting morale of your team members which had proven to drastically improve fill rate and reduce drop off percentage.


  5. "Not enough clients. Company didn't really look for any jobs for their employees."

    I worked at Horizon Staffing Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on new projects and open up new locations and try out new initiatives. Opportunity to make commission on individual and group contribution.
