    I worked at SC Foster as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff all treated me nicely and worked with me. They cared about me as a person, not just a contractor to make money. They tried to get me the most amount of money. They were very helpful through the hiring process, and when I decided to leave.

    Cons

    There is no paid time off for sick, holliday or vacation for short term contracts (less than a year)

    Advice to Management

    Address the issues in the cons

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SC Foster full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gives entry level people an opportunity to learn about recruiting

    Cons

    Absolutely no work/ life balance -Expected to be checking your personal cellphone for a new email 24/7 ( even on the weekends and days off )
    Expected to make and take calls on personal cellphone with no reinbursment
    Management is all talk, does not stand by word - all empty promises
    Feels all recruiters are easily replaced and treats you that way, no respect at all
    Highest turnover i've ever seen, 4 recruiters fired in 1 month.
    Hostile work environment

    Advice to Management

    Close your staffing firm, you are dishonest, have no respect for others, cheap and money hungry. Stop trying to low -ball your contractors so you can make more money for yourself.

    "Something shady is going on here"

    Pros

    good training
    base salary - not a commission only job

    Cons

    - Lots of promises made during training about how they treat employees - not kept.
    - I was hired and let go two days later - no explanation. Every company I have ever worked for I have been promoted. I believe in working hard and want to be number one. I was not even there long enough to get started. I've never been let go before.
    - Had me turn in all my banking information and let me go that same day.
    - Had me use my own accounts for g-mail, skype, etc. Have all my passwords and personal information.

    Advice to Management

    "Staffing with a Conscience" should mean staffing with a conscience. Stop being shady and treat employees right and you'll keep the good ones that are loyal.

    Pros

    You are able to work from home

    Cons

    You are micromanaged. Empty promises during the interview process. Commission schedule changes all the time and they don't always pay.

    Advice to Management

    There is no need to micromanage your employees or talk about them to other co-workers behind their backs.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Was able to take time off (without pay) when I needed to travel for an extended period.
    Busy office with diverse requirements to work on.
    Could work from home when needed.

    Cons

    Benefits package was a little expensive so I went and got my own.
    There were so many requirements that at times I felt overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    Medical coverage is important to many employees so you would do yourself a favor if you found a plan that wasn't so expensive.

    Pros

    flexible schedules as long as hours are met

    Cons

    Did not train new employees; terminated 5 people in my short tenure there; No training/feedback given to employees - were just fired; rules changed constantly; compensation changed without notice; very poorly run business; those managing the team have no business or recruitment experience and is obvious with how the business was run

    Advice to Management

    If the business is going to last, need to learn how to train/mentor new hires to be the performers they want and not expect top level performers after 1 or 2 weeks with zero training.
