    Pros

    QPS cares about how their employees view them. We are asked to do several surveys a year so they know how we're feeling on many topics from how we view our benefits to do we feel like we have a best friend or a person we can go to at our job. They care so much that they have our Executives and Head Quarter Managers touring all regions to listen to our concerns and answer questions. I feel valued and that they truly do care about us.

    Cons

    Pay could be more competitive

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing that you care

    Pros

    Weekly Pay, Great co-workers, Great Clients, Annual meeting is a fun way to see who you communicate with.

    Cons

    New Management doesn't take time to understand how each branch operates. What works in one region may not work in another. Instead of adding more work to the already growing list of things to do as a recruiter. Also if you get on their bad side for standing up for yourself, you get fired. You can't go to management with a concern or complaint without the fear of losing your job. Previous upper management was great, should have stuck with JR.

    Advice to Management

    Actually Listen to your recruiters and sales team. Take the time to know your employees, talking over the phone or having 2 or 3 conversations over email doesn't count. Listen to their concerns even if you don't feel like it's a big deal, it is to them. Maybe spend more than an hour in a branch that you feel is failing to see the issues they are concerned with. Also if you feel like someone is negative, how about doing what they ask and talk to them about why they feel that way instead of just firing them. Talk to their coworkers and clients they worked with on a daily basis to see if they feel the same, when they all disagree with your opinion then maybe you are the issue. Each office has the same complaints, but won't stand up and say it because if you get on your Regional VP's bad side he'll just fire you.
    Also if you open a new branch 15-30 miles from your clients maybe before moving you should have new clients in the new area. It's hard to recruit for positions that are far away with candidate that have no transportation.

    Pros

    You'll find some of the most hardworking, caring, and kind coworkers ever internally at QPS.

    Cons

    I'm making pennies and I have two student loans to pay off. I wouldn't be complaining but I work SO hard because we are always short handed at my branch. I haven't heard one person say they're happy within the past 3-4 months because of our insane workload at our branch. Actually, I've heard the opposite and I know quite a few people at my branch are job hunting. I don't feel like I will advance here because they either pick favorites or they pick people based on their numbers only, which is a horrible business model. It just makes me sad, because when I started this job I absolutely loved it. Now, I'm not too sure..

    Advice to Management

    Look at your employees. Look at the work they're doing for you every. single. day. and instead of only seeing the BAD things that come up in this huge branch, remember all of the GOOD things we do to keep this busy place running 24/7.

    I worked at QPS Employment Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bonuses and annual meeting are about the only good things about this company. There are some good co-workers but most managers are the reason why those talented employees leave.

    Cons

    The management there is ridiculous. The managers and assistant managers have no idea what they are doing. They are the sole reason why I left the company. An entire department turned over in a years time because of the managers and none of the upper management blinked an eye. They are rude and unprofessional. They undermine their staff and don't listen to them or their ideas. HR has been told about these managers multiple times and has done nothing to change that. Even having a stack of files in HR doesn't mean you will get fired or demoted.

    The company spends money on external marketing firms when they have a marketing department internally so instead of spending money to educate and enhance those minds they waste it on someone else telling them what to do.

    There is no advancement opportunity because you aren't allowed to try and learn more. You are basically told what to do even if it doesn't make sense.

    The pay is extremely low for the work that is done all over the entire company and departments.

    There is no work/life balance. If you are sick the managers make you feel guilty that you called in. There is no working from home even though most of the work can be done from home. There is no sick time so you have to use your PTO which you don't earn very fast. People literally watch out their window and tell on you if you're even 1 min late.

    I would never recommend this company to anyone. It is filled with politics and favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    You need to fire the dead weight managers that have been their forever and don't like change. Actually look at why people are leaving and change that. Realize you are losing and have lost amazingly talented people because of managers.

    Pay people more. Stop requiring so much work or experience if you aren't going to pay a good salary.

    Pros

    Great upper management team. strive to be a great place to work, flexible schedules, really feel valued by upper level management. Do feel rewarded with cool perks throughout the year

    Cons

    pay seems a little low for the amount of revenue generated. Annual increases didn't seem to manage the quality of work put in during the previous year. The PTO accrual rate also seems a little low. Change happens very slow

    Advice to Management

    Be better or more proactive in retaining talent. Too many solid producers leave the company. Things need to move at a faster pace when it comes to promotions or relocation opportunities
