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

    Pros

    There are none! Not a single one!

    Cons

    I called and emailed several times and no one responded. I was lied to several times and frankly the girls in the office are pure idiots. They hold your belongings for ransom even if you're at the establishment.

    Advice to Management

    You obviously are in the wrong business.

    Pros

    great co workers and ok pay

    Cons

    no management, no organization, they expect you to do the work of everything with no management support. The owners only care about money not the employees or what they do

    Advice to Management

    get some managers that know the business and hire more people and train them

    I have been working at Spherion as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Only thing these guys are pros at is lying!!!!

    Cons

    These guy had me leave a permanent job. Only to terminate me with in two weeks for reduction of work force. Why take someone from a permanent position knowing that you may not need them. I asked the maintenance manger of the company why i was terminated he had no clue about this he stated he needed me it was not his doing it was all on spherion. I was advised never to work for this company again.

    Advice to Management

    Be a professional and do your research first.

    Pros

    Found a temp job for me.

    Cons

    No contact after. You are sent a survey once a yr but no feedback or inquiries about how you are doing. Not overly helpful or active in your connection with them once a job has been found.

    Advice to Management

    Personal contact would be nice once in a while.

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

    Pros

    Thought they were a career path, they assured me they were interested in a one-year commitment, but it was manipulation to keep me as long as possible without paying me what I worked throughout a seven month period.

    Cons

    I was encouraged to falsify weekly timesheets so that no overtime is documented. After refusing, I continued to work many mandatory undocumented overtime hours without pay, as well as I was docked for the occasional days off after I'd already worked overtime to compensate the three absences during a seven month period. After I was incorrectly paid for the fourth time, I emailed my immediate resignation with only a request to accept their offer of a recommendation letter, and they refused. I again asked to please just be truthful about the services I provided and they insisted I worked no overtime. They asked for the office key and I responded the key would return upon the recommendation letter offered. They responded with changing the locks in the office and disabling my email account. No idea whether the State of Arkansas' Labor Board has any interest in assisting me with what is owed, but I filed a claim anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to and abusing your employees with illegal labor practices.

    I worked at Spherion full-time

    Pros

    Actually tried to find you a job in the place you wanted. Was great if you were unemployed waiting for a call.

    Cons

    -had employees on speaker phone in the office giving out their socials for everyone to hear
    -didn't communicate well with future employees
    -didn't inform employees of important things like w-2s
    -hard to get ahold of, seemed to never be in the office

    Advice to Management

    Do your job for once. Be professional.

    Pros

    Not really many to list, unless you are desperate for a job under any circumstances

    Cons

    Disorganized, upper management to site management. Focus on EOC and nepotism, rather than highly skilled professionals, even when demanded by client

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps rebuild from the top down with a focus on customer and customer needs rather than diversity and H1B1 tax breaks
