    Pros

    good people in office and good hours

    Cons

    not the greatest company in my eyes. A LOT of cold calling and most of the time the recruiter's don't pay attention to the people you send them anyway. Pretty much spent all day on the phone for nothing. Working for other staffing agency's, i realize how dumb their system really is.

    Advice to Management

    don't throw us in right away and expect perfection in one month

    I worked at Synerfac Technical Staffing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, coworkers are great people and a lot of great perks. The compensation is lower than most staffing companies.

    Cons

    They don't set you up for success. A lot of the job is you learning by fire. The training is bs and it's not fair to person recently employed because they compare you to someone who's then their for 5+ years

    Advice to Management

    Train. Train. Train. You can just expect someone to pick up the job and throw you profits. You need to invest in that employee and then you reap the profits.

    I worked at Synerfac Technical Staffing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Synerfac was good about following up with me as a member of their staff working for an Amazon location.

    Cons

    There was no communication between the agency and Amazon to determine how things were going, despite communicating with me to see how I felt things were doing. I thought things were going fine, I went in did my work, tried to do what I could (with my limited accesses due to my temp status with Amazon) and do it well. Amazon however, randomly emailed Synerfac to terminate the position without so much as giving a reason or communicating anything to Synerfac that would indicate they didn't feel things were going well, prior to terminating the position.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate effectively and follow up with clients you place people with.

    Pros

    Family environment; You can tell management cares about the employees. You gain knowledge of the recruiting industry.

    Cons

    Individual locations are ran separately, meaning there are HUGE differences between the amount people are making at each location even though all reps are compared to each other.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out best practices within the company and apply them to each branch!

    I worked at Synerfac Technical Staffing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No micromgmt regarding day-to-day activities. People left you alone as long as you were able to do your job. Relatively ethical practices, not nearly as slimy as other firms.

    Cons

    No mentoring or sales training. Company is completely lacking in technical resources and corporate infrastructure.

    Advice to Management

    Become more involved with what's happening at the branch offices.

    I have been working at Synerfac Technical Staffing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is my first position out of college and I have no doubt in my mind that is one of the best companies to start and grow a career. The amount of freedom and growth potential is astounding. The management is willing to go to bat for you to ensure that you are being treated fairly. Compensation is fair with potential for growth. Place a lot of emphasis on work-life balance. Have never had any trouble working with my schedule.

    Cons

    Initial overturn lead to stunted growth as an office as a whole but eventually lead to having the right team allowing sustained success

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    I was so blessed to find the kind recruiters at Synerfac Technical Staffing. They were extraordinarily helpful in finding my current position and preparing me throughout the interviewing process. I always felt supported. They kept me in the loop every step of the way- which was different in comparison to other recruiters.

    Cons

    They only have one office and its in a heavy traffic area of Atlanta.. but I only had to come in once.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
