Pretty dedicated recruiters with questionable pay offers
Temporary Packer and Inspector (Former Employee), Woodstock, IL – August 16, 2013
Pros: scheduales, prompt replys, helpful and professional.
Cons: how much in advance you can work, record keeping, low pay
I didn't mind their Woodstock location. The ladys where very helpful with finding me a job. Then I got let go, I screwed up and I still feel bad. Told them what happened and they still gave me a second chance. Didn't have much luck but they still offer me jobs. They understand accidents happen and humans have errors. I still use these ladies as a reference – more... too. – less
I am a hard working dedicated worker all about helping out the team

Placement Coordinator (Former Employee), Woodstock, IL – August 13, 2014
Pros: insurace, break
Cons: no advancement
This job started off great. I was told I would be put on salary after 90 days as well as having my benefits. After being there for a short period of time harassment started to become a every day thing. Regardless of what you would do. The best part about this job would be the paid vacation as well as sending people out on jobs and seeing there smiling – more... faces – less
Contract Employee (Former Employee), Lake Geneva, WI – June 27, 2014
Pros: learned many different job tasks in a short amount of time
Cons: no hiring opportunities
Short term opportunities with very few long term positions ever available. Management seemed to push people from job to job rather than finding the right positions for the right people. Never had an opportunity to know the management or even many co-workers. Found myself working 3 months and once the contract was up for one company they would move people – more... onto the next. – less
It's an unbalanced career but it is a great stepping stone for an entry level employee.
Production Worker (Current Employee), Rockford, IL – May 30, 2014
Corporate Services is a great workplace for workers who can't find work. They will put you in temp to hire positions which is great because people can earn their position. They are a fair company and they give everybody a fair chance to work if they qualify. The typical day at work can vary from warehouse production to landscaping or moving furniture. – more... They mainly have general labor positions. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning a variety of skills. The hardest part is that it is not a stable job and some jobs only require you to work one day. I love the management, they are always focused and they always answer the phone to assist you with your needs. – less
immediate co workers helped provide a comfortable work environment, upper management not so helpful
Placement Coordinator (Former Employee), Janesville, WI – August 30, 2013
Pros: meet diverse clientel
Cons: staffing industry is very discouraging at times
This position required us to make several sales calls a day. Most were discouraging. Filling job orders was satisfying but most of the time it was a long drawn out process with lots of disappointment. Upper management was not a positive force in our daily duties. Part of my job was to process applications. That kept us busy. It was great building a – more... relationship with our customers. The pay was definately too low for what was expected of me. I was required to run the office by myself for long period of time when co workers had quit. Overall I would not recommend working there. – less
Temporary Worker (Former Employee), Lake Geneva, WI – March 16, 2013
Pros: losing weight due to extreme conditions in the summer.
Cons: getting paid very little to do animal labor.
Not only do the wages at these jobs suck, you work in the hottest of conditions possible. The owners of these companies are trying to keep costs down by not running any air conditioning in the summer time and that is where you are sent to work. So if you like working in hellish conditions for $9.00 an hour, coming home covered in sweat and dirt, being – more... too tired to move for the rest of the day, then this place is for you! If you want actual human working conditions, forget about it! You will NOT find that here. – less
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), South Bend IN – January 21, 2013
Pros: co-workers get along
Cons: benfits, how your treated, no compansation for vehicle use, no chance for advancement
I worked here for almost 2 years. Your work is timed by a manager holding a stop watch, Co workers do get along well, you get hired for one job and do another, if your not part of the family that owns this company you will never get promoted. This company has no idea what the meaning of respect is to an employee and the HR department is there for the – more... owners not the employees. – less
Certified Forklift Driver (Former Employee), South Bend, IN – September 13, 2012
Pros: very clean environment

Each day I would pick orders on a forklift, do quality assurance try to make improvements, I learned about steering committees and Quality assurance, management was new and "in the making", I loved all my co-workers, The hardest part of the job was dealing with the theft and trying to prevent it, The most enjoyable part was seeing all the happy faces – more... and great attitudes every day. – less
Placement Coordinator (Former Employee), Woodstock, IL – May 19, 2012
Cons: short staffed, communication
I opened the office, at 7am. I would re-route the phones to our office from Corporate. We welcomed walk in applicants, so anyone who came in I, interviewed, input their information into the database, and made sure all the information was correct. I would check all daily orders to make sure that our employees arrived on time, and there were no problems – more... with our customers. I would answering all incoming calls, and address all issues. I would talk to customers and get more business, I would also do searches for candidates for open positions. I would pre-screen candidates, background check, drug screen, and test all possible candidates. I would post ad's to recruit more candidates. I would do payroll on Tuesday's, handed payroll out of Fridays and addressed any problems with hours. I would make all applications as we did not offer online applications. I would have all workers compensation out of the office, and unemployment/hearings. Documentation was critical, multitasking was critical. It was a small three person office, I was under my manager and when she was not available I took on her roll. I also training all new in-house staff. For a small three person office, we were #2 out of eight for our company. We were right beneath Corporate. I was the #1 Placement Coordinator out of 8 offices. We employed 150+ employees on a given week.
I learned all aspects of staffing out of this location. Recruitment, sales, account management, and basic human resources. – less
