    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.

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

    Pros

    They are a very flexible company to work for with many different job opportunities. They have both full-time and part-time jobs. I am working at the Frederick news post. The job is one that is easy to learn. It is fast paced and the people there are nice.

    Cons

    Just that the machines sometimes malfunction. I do have to commute kind of far but that is not too bad. Sometimes it can be a little too fast.

    I worked at Spherion full-time

    Pros

    Spherion offers personalized and professional assistance in searching for a position. They also check in on how things go during an assignment and I always feel like I can come to them with a question or an issue and they truly have tried to resolve it. I have appreciated the interview process and the friendliness and warmth displayed throughout my employment.

    Cons

    I wish there was PTO offered to temporary employees; especially those on temporary assignments that last for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    I've worked with other staffing agencies and it is nice to know that I can call this office and usually the same people will be there. I hope they stay because it is nice when people already kind of know who I am!

    Paid holidays off, easy work life balance

    Cons

    Poor training, lack of direction because one owner gives you one set of directions, the other dismisses or openly yells at the other, a lot of tension

    Advice to Management

    Culture matters, a person can not be productive if they do not feel appreciated
