    Pros

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

    I was employed at General Mills with only customer service in my background. I have no felonies and management in my background. I also have a valid driver's license.

    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

    Pros

    Great team and fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    They don't adjust the quota's to go with economy or season which I think is a huge downfall.

    Advice to Management

    You say "know your Clients" well I say know when to adjust sales quotas according to the current time and situation. Unrealistic quotas doesn't get the job done any better or faster.

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

    Pros

    They were nice people to work with. I enjoyed how much they were willing to help me to find a job.

    Cons

    They took about a month and half to put me into a job placement, even though they told me within the first week that I had a job. They don't act to kindly if you ask for a sick day because you are actually sick, and is physically unable to get to the job.

    Advice to Management

    Try and not have a such a long wait time for job placement.
