    I have been working at Spherion part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They are a very flexible company to work for with many different job opportunities. They have both full-time and part-time jobs. I am working at the Frederick news post. The job is one that is easy to learn. It is fast paced and the people there are nice.

    Cons

    Just that the machines sometimes malfunction. I do have to commute kind of far but that is not too bad. Sometimes it can be a little too fast.

    I worked at Spherion full-time

    Pros

    Spherion offers personalized and professional assistance in searching for a position. They also check in on how things go during an assignment and I always feel like I can come to them with a question or an issue and they truly have tried to resolve it. I have appreciated the interview process and the friendliness and warmth displayed throughout my employment.

    Cons

    I wish there was PTO offered to temporary employees; especially those on temporary assignments that last for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked with other staffing agencies and it is nice to know that I can call this office and usually the same people will be there. I hope they stay because it is nice when people already kind of know who I am!

    I have been working at Spherion full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid holidays off, easy work life balance

    Cons

    Poor training, lack of direction because one owner gives you one set of directions, the other dismisses or openly yells at the other, a lot of tension

    Advice to Management

    Culture matters, a person can not be productive if they do not feel appreciated

    I have been working at Spherion full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staffing specialists are the best at the Tinton Falls, NJ office! They are easy to work with and give you all the info you need to be successful in a temp assignment. I recently finished an assignment as a call center representative, and even though it wasn't exactly the type of work I'm seeking, it was a good experience.

    Cons

    Not enough opportunities for admin assistant work at this office.

    I have been working at Spherion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great way to start working for good companies with great future potential of working full time. Great pay.

    Cons

    Not enough vacation/sick days, no carry over for your unused days, low benefits

    Advice to Management

    Give us the hours we have to work as mandatory overtime towards our hours earned. Get rid of the write ups for using days earned, we earned them and shouldn't get a write up when using our last day.

    Must be a self starter to succeed. Not a lot of mentorship, but great people.

    Could use more structure and motivation for the team for those who need the extra push. Could be more sales focused, invest in your team and they will invest in you. Get dental and vision
