Process Technician (Former Employee), ABM Canada, Former employee – August 17, 2012
Pros: execellent professional service
I enjoyed working with Express Professional in Georgetown, Ontario.
My previous placement didn't work out for various reason this was not there fault comes on fauly of the employer not having proper training. Should Express Pros ever have another placement for me again sure why not much better than most other employement agencies out there today.
I – more... want to say thanks for job well done sorry the placement didn't work out something better off. – less
Client (Current Employee), Brantford, ON – July 7, 2012
I registered with Express months ago. Since then, they have put me forward for 1 job. That's it. Even then, I didn't get the job and the company it was with did not have a telephone number (sketchy, I know) so I rang Express and asked my advisor if he could find out why I didn't get the job. That was about 1/2 months ago and I still have not heard back – more... from him.
They are the WORST temporary job agency going. All they want is to increase their numbers, they have no interest in helping you at all. If you're hoping to find a job, don't waste your time with them, go somewhere else! – less
Another "Job Agency" Interested in Increasing Clientele Inventory List...
They didnt send me to any interviews! (Former Employee), Hamilton,ON – June 3, 2012
Cons: too many to list...
Just as the title suggests, they register you to increase their client inventory list and then you never hear from them again. How these agencies stay open is beyond me. There must be an association to complain to in order to shut their doors down. Pathetic.
Research Assistant (temp) (Current Employee), South Charleston, WV – April 14, 2014
Pros: no strings, part-time
Cons: more responsibilities that i planned on. small rate of pay.
Function as temporary employee for company contracted by Express Employment Professionals but have same duties and requirements as full-time employees. However, I only work three days a week, seven hours a day plus one hour for lunch. As I prefer part-time employment the days and hours suit me very well. The hardest part of the job is having the same – more... responsibilities as the permanent employees without benefit of the years of knowledge they have. The best part of the job is in learning new things. I feel more fulfilled the more I learn. Management is different and very strict on this job. I don't mind learning new rules but it's really stressful when you're afraid to make a mistake. I've loved getting to know my co-workers. They're wonderful. – less
associate (Former Employee), medford oregon – April 14, 2014
Pros: never working at the same site unless you want to.
Cons: have to travel, never know when you get a job offer.
Express was great to work for because as a student they understood that I need to stay busy throughout the summer in order to survive the rest of the year off three months salary. They are very organized and on top of job openings as soon as they happen.
Employees work hard with little support and direction.
Administrative Staffing Consultant (Current Employee), Longmont, CO – April 14, 2014
Dedicated employees, serious about servicing their clients. There is a lot of self-learning and not a lot of direction from management. Typical days include leaving a lot of work undone as there is always more to do than can be done in a single day.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Mesa, AZ – April 13, 2014
Pros: very friendly environment and weekly spiffs.
Cons: short breaks and little medical benefits.
Was responsible for planning and scheduling employee driving routes. Managed and converted daily schedules to all employee needs. Organized monthly roundups to pump up employees to be the number one staffing agency in the valley.
Recruiter (Former Employee), Marietta, GA – April 11, 2014
Each Express branch is individually franchised so the owners are free to treat their employees however they want. Corporate will not help you if you have an issue with anyone within the branches. The salary per year is significantly lower than other staffing companies. They do not provide benefits for their internal employees and the commission scales – more... suck! And not to mention the high turnover rate. The Marietta office is the worst. Do not work for this company. You'll be lucky if you get a paycheck from the owner. – less
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Fairfield, CA – April 10, 2014
Pros: good pay for a temp agency
Cons: it'snot guarenteed work
This is probably the best temp agency around Vacaville, CA. The pay is great compared to other agencies. The jobs are just basic jobs.They are professional in how they act and they find you work if you show them you want it.
Associate (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MI – April 8, 2014
Pros: direct deposit
I have worked on two contracts with this company. They are polite, efficient and helpful. They work with each associate to determine the contract that would work best for them. They offer a lot of manufacturing/light manufacturing contracts.
They do have a few contracts that they focus on staffing. If you are unable or unqualified to staff these contracts, – more... they are often slow about helping you find a placement.
They are one of the most positive and helpful groups I have had a chance to work with. My advice is to be very proactive in contact and follow up if you are not a candidate for one of their major contracts. – less
Clains Manager (Former Employee), Bala-Cynwyd, PA – April 7, 2014
Pros: working in good healthy environments, meeting deadlines, being organized and working with your fellow employees
Cons: disgruntle work enviorment and everyone works as a team.
Arriving 10-15 minutes before scheduled, in order to set myself up properly for work. I would log into my computer and first check my work email, reviewing the every day to day guidelines of what's expected for the day. Management is usually great to work around and while finishing up all the tasks that the company persist on. My co-workers are calm – more... and collective, really helpful to the company and employees. The hardest part of the job for me is when I get spin a little too much on a particular case knowing I have a heavy workload ahead of me. The most enjoyable time of the job is getting my work done, meeting deadlines and helping out other employees. – less
