    Pros

    Flexibility, great industry, corporate team and owners are wonderful, professional, good team, good people, longevity

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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

    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

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

    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.
