    I worked at Snelling full-time

    Pros

    Venerable brand with good name recognition. Great people across the board, doing the best they can to compete in an extremely competitive environment.

    Cons

    Like many staffing companies in the U.S., there is an under-investment in technology. Upgrading technology would help employees respond to opportunities more quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Need new strategies to address intense competition. Consider the use of mobile devices for senior management, business development, and sales professionals who spend a lot of time on the road,

    I have been working at Snelling full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a handful of exceptional franchise owners who are incredibly successful and have built wonderful businesses in their markets. If are reading these reviews, understand that a negative review may not be reflective of a franchise and how they operate. Investigate that market in particular.

    Cons

    Snelling has been falling apart ever since they were purchased by a private equity firm back in 2005. The company has had incessant turnover at the helm and the leadership really doesn't understand the industry or at least what it's like to work a desk or generate business in this kind of market. Staffing has changed drastically over the last decade and they've done nothing to keep up with it. Snelling was once a force to be reckoned with back in its day so its very frustrating to franchise owners who signed up back then and are now forced to be on this sinking ship. Snelling still makes you pay the same franchise fees even though the support has dwindled by more than 50% of what it once was. Communication between HQ and the network is really sad. Corp makes changes without input from the owners which is ridiculous since they're the ones working in the trenches and know what is needed for continued success in their respective markets. Corporate makes it very difficult for franchise owners to leave or have a fair exit from the system.The successful owners would be better off on their own than being chained to a brand that is in peril.

    Advice to Management

    Sell, sell, sell. And, for God's sake, do NOT recruit new franchisees into this failing network.
    Allow franchise owners to leave if they want and stop holding them hostage.

    I worked at Snelling full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, great learning experience

    Cons

    Immature management, like a highschool

    Advice to Management

    Be professional and appreciate your employees. I watched you all let go of some great employees when you couldn't afford to, all because you didn't like them.

    keep doing the good work you do .

    I have been working at Snelling full-time

    Pros

    Some wonderful people to work with, in the field and at HQ. Unfortunately, none of them are in Senior Leadership, except the HR Director.

    Cons

    A ship without a rudder . . . Senior leadership has no idea how to bail out this sinking ship or how to grow its business on the street. The Franchisees, which make up most of Snelling, seem so disenfranchised, they seem to have little or no respect for those running this show. Snelling is not investing enough in its branches, employees or its future. Moral here in SellingWorld SUCKS, it seems like most of us are in CYA mode or are looking elsewhere, for a more stable company. Leadership seems non-existant at HQ, they are never available and when they do respond, it is usually too late. If you are considering Snelling, then run, don't walk to another more stable company.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of your behinds and treat your employees like valued team members, not a disposable pawn. Try setting a good example by working a full day, coming into work on time and leaving when the rest of us are expected to. It seems like you have already lost your franchisees attention and commitment, try to better support your few remaining branches and the people working here for you day in and out. But, why waste my words here? We suspect that Snelling is most likely being positioned and packaged for sale, so let the smoke & mirrors continue.
