Temp Worker (Former Employee), North Bethesda, MD – May 21, 2014
Pros: great experience working with people, able to gain experience in different fields of work
Cons: low pay, lack of work
This company has the right idea. They want people who work hard and they want work that will keep people working. It is sad that sometimes this company cannot deliver on having stable work opportunities to keep most of their employees.
Express Employment Professionals is a great place to work because of the Search Specialists.
HR Assistant (Current Employee), Chattanooga – July 14, 2014
The Search Specialists do their best to keep their employees working. However, the draw back is the benefits. The insurance is fairly expensive and is only a discount program instead of actual insurance benefits.
welder (Current Employee), Cedar Falls, IA – July 12, 2014
Pros: layed back place to be placed in and smoke breaks are whenever you want one for the most part
Cons: heathcare unproducive work emviroment pay and no overtime at current job site
the current job ive been contracted to is more then layed back. it is highly unproducive. half of the employees dont work at all or mpst of the time and the boss is rarely at work and when he is he shows up late . he is a cool boss but not really much of a boss. hardest part about the day is working while others do nothing and or play around. otherwise – more... this is an ok place to work. no overtime at current site
do keep in mind i work through a temp service and this review is not in any way how they work. this is the way the company im contracted out to work at is. – less
Laborer (Current Employee), Cape Girardeau, MO – July 8, 2014
A typical day at work for me starts with me checking my fork lift to insure everything is ok. Then i check for orders from any of our customers. If there are orders, i fill those orders, then turn in the proper paper work to my supervisor. I learned how to drive a "stand up" fork lift. Management is great, and that may be a big reason I enjoy my job. – more... My co-workers are also great, everyone carries the weight they are supposed to. The hardest part of the job for me is pulling the orders, simply because this requires heavy lifting. The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that management knows that we know what to do, and they don't have to watch over us all day as if we were children. – less
Test and Repair (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – July 7, 2014
Pros: people and supervisors were great!
Cons: long days
I worked with some amazing people while there. I learned that I love to move around while working and learn new things about phones. The hardest part of the job were the long hours with not much moving around to do.
Logistics Assistant - GT Exhaust (Current Employee), Lincoln, NE – July 3, 2014
Pros: very helpful employees at express
Cons: compensation and benefits
Worked with outbound shipping documents. Was given the opportunity to learn about international shipping. I have many years of Logistics experience, but have never touched on International shipping. Met a lot of diversified people who were interesting to work with.
Cons: no benefits. no healthcare. no regulations. no
I've noticed most of these agencies keep you long enough until a new wave of temp workers come in. These agencies are essentially cattle-farms eroding the economic security of the poor and vulnerable in society.
Temporary Worker (Current Employee), Spokane, WA – June 30, 2014
Pros: everything. also i was given a chance to show what i have
I was able to use some things I've learned for business at some of the jobs while being a temp worker through Express. All the co-workers I've worked with have been amazing, happy going people. The hardest part on one of the jobs I've done was stand for 10 hours. It was the hardest part because I never really had the opportunity to experience that at – more... my other jobs. The most enjoyable part was everything. I love working with people and around people. Also I was able to work on my own and use my own abilities on the job since the manager was never there. Express agency has been easy going and I have not had a issue with it. They gave me a chance to be me while working. – less

Express Employment Professionals is a top notch staffing agency that provides employers with employees and people with jobs.

Many positions are full-time, long term and aren't advertised to the public so timing is everything! Express is a franchise that is locally owned and managed making it a great company to work for and do business with having the freedom to make decisions based on the needs of each client and situation. My typical day is reviewing my calendar, checking emails, and planning my day by doing phone calls from my desk or in person and meeting current and prospective clients. Teamwork and communication is very important in reaching our company and individual goals. We have a short meeting in the morning and late afternoon to go over the daily events and the progress that has been made. I have learned that follow up is very important with my position and persistency pays! Relationship building is an awesome part of my job keeping it very personal and fun! – less
