    I worked at Pro Staff (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I found the office staff easy to work with. For the most part, they were responsive to any inquiries I had.

    Cons

    Job endings can happen at the end of a work day, when you're told you do not have to report for work the next day.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe encourage your client companies to provide some advanced notice for job endings - this would go a long way to retaining good workers. If you have a good worker, s/he is more likely to remain with you when you are able to offer them immediate positions if the one on which they are working suddenly (to the worker) ends. For those you hire: It can be more than a little disheartening to find out you no longer have work when you get home from work one day.

    Thanks for getting me an entry-level job! The transition from college to employment was mostly smooth and hardly stressful.
