    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.

    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.
