    I worked at Option 1 Staffing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I can honestly say, as an employee from many years ago. Option 1 has always stayed true to their clients and employees, always held on to the integrity and the value of an honest business and never wavered from the meaning of true customer service.

    Cons

    I can not post any negatives. That is the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. If you have has growth and continued success, you are keeping up with trends, offering excellent customer service and education your staff.

    Pros

    Option 1 Staffing was able to connect me to a job that was perfect for me. Amy Clark was extremely kind and helpful during the interview process.

    Cons

    The pay/salary is no where near close to a livable wage for the Bay Area. Unfortunately even with 17 years of experience in a specific industry they still get away with paying you what seems like pennies when we live in the most expensive place in the country.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a way to make sure qualified people
    Are getting the salary they deserve. Giving someone a manager position and then offering less than $20 per hour in the Bay Area is a slap in the face to the person who's worked hard to get where they are including 2 college degrees. Just felt taken advantage of when it came down to the salary.

    Pros

    I worked here for over 2 years and learned a lot from the senior level staff and president. This is not like a lot of other staffing firms that grind sales personnel up.

    I came in with minimal industry knowledge and was given a lot of responsibilities off the bat, which made me nervous. I was able to adapt quickly with hands on training and daily meetings allowed me to be successful in this role.

    Realistic sales goals - work/life balance was excellent - competitive pay - opportunity to grow

    Cons

    You are given some clients but are encourage to develop your own client base and desk.

    I worked at Option 1 Staffing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As an employee(internally) you get an hour lunch. They also always have bags of candy for you to eat during the day

    Cons

    You don't get the proper training needed to be a sourcer. All you do is look at resumes for 13 dollars an hour. Then they will tell you they will raise your pay and won't. Also they micro manage you constantly. Gail is one of the managers and she nags constantly at you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.

    Pros

    They offer a variety of jobs and I got placed. It was a ok. I built relationships with the company that I was working. I was almost hired.

    Cons

    I was not hired at my company due to some kind of agreement with the company I was working at which required a significant amount of money for me to get hired. After my assignment ended I called back a few times but they have not gotten back with me in a couple of months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep non working temps on a email list so they can see the jobs that are available. Because if you don't know that one of the temps works. They might know someone who does.

    Pros

    Friendly environment and professional staff. The staff strives to get to know every potential candidate on a more personal level. They are always working hard to find the perfect fit for candidates and companies. The company also specializes in many areas from IT to healthcare to accounting so they have a variety of jobs. You should give them your feedback because they appreciate it and use it to constantly improve.

    Cons

    They cannot place everybody they meet.
