    I worked at Spherion full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Once you get to know a few of the Staffing Specialists you are treated like family. Especially if you successfully complete an assignment and receive favorable reviews, they will partner with you to make sure they are sharing their best jobs with you.

    Cons

    Cannot think of any. The whole staff really cares about what they do.

    Advice to Management

    It would have been a plus to have received a little information on how I could have purchased benefits through spherion rather than just being sent the link.

    No life they will work you seven days with 12 hours through the week for months. No life/work Balance might as well say you live here

    Give people their weekends off and it wouldn't be a high turn over rate in this place.

    I worked at Spherion full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company draws assignments from strong employer pool, matching job seekers with appropriate workplaces. Many assignments are temp to hire and well paying.

    Cons

    Some employers put out assignments before finalizing details such as equipment and password permission. I have had the experience of reporting for work and not having the badges or passwords to do the job.

    Advice to Management

    Inform candidates of workplace idiosyncrasies.

    Pros

    They will employ individuals fast, weekly checks. Paycard with employment. Paperwork was minimal and easy to apply at office.

    Please look at the resumes you ask for and fit people to the job descriptions. I have clean background and driver's license and was put in a factory that I have no background in....Stop filling positions based on your needs and not your applicants wants
