If I could give it zero stars I would.
Internal Position. (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON5 April 2018
The biggest issue with the Staffing Connection is the management. The managers thrive on treating other people like they are worthless, and the extremely high turnover rate is proof of this - worked there for a few months and saw at least 7 internal people get hired and then quit within that time frame.
There is NO work-life balance, the office culture is terrible as it is very high stress. Most of the employees are expected to work for 10+ hours a day on salary wages, meaning they end up earning less than minimum wage.
Many people that get hired on with staffing connection don't get paid!!!
Stay away from this place!!!
Pros
Rapport between coworkers is nice
Cons
Horrible managers, lying and deceit, not getting paid, treating people like they are garbage

Great place to work
Driver Helper (Current Employee) –  Peterborough, ON4 May 2018
Started with The Staffing Connection in February of 2018 as a driver helper. A typical work day involves travel in and around Peterborough as well as outlying areas such as Cobourg and Barrie. Management is a pleasure to work with and are helpful in answering any questions that arise. The workplace culture has been enjoyable as it presents the opportunity to travel to different places with varying job responsibilities.
Pros
Enjoyable workplace
Cons
Long hours at times

Work at random hours
General Laborer (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON8 September 2018
My time at this company can be summarised as this, working at the most random hours of the day not knowing any form of consistency. You could be one day at a cheese factory and the next as a truck driver. Didn't learn anything, management was terrible, the hardest part of the job is wanting to wake up at 3 am in the morning.
Pros
None
Cons

Be very careful !!
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON4 September 2018
Staffing Connection won’t always pay wages if you go home sick.

General Manager will not honour terms contained in a contract he wrote.

General Manager is a bully who is used to getting hiw own way. If you stand up for your rights; he will make sure you don’t work again.

This company will find any way to circumvent Ontario Labour Laws and abuses it’s power where WSIB is concerned. If you need a job they’ll find you one but don’t ever expect them to have your back.
Pros
Weekly pay
Cons
Too many to list

Dont work here
Welder (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON8 December 2018
They dont treat you with respect. They're shuttle service is a bunch of loser taxi drivers that drive 110 on side roads to Tottenham.
They are quick to hire you than quick to ignore you.
Dont miss a shift or be sick cause you'll loose all your money.

This place is a joke.
Pros
None
Cons
2 hours commute time for 14$ an hour

Terrible company to work for
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Cobourg, ON3 October 2012
Privately owned and dictated. Sick time must be requested off by calling the owner directly. The owner is not a nice person and works his staff to their very last breath. Expectations are that you will work 24/7 for low pay with no benefits, no time off, and no performance appraisals, no raises, no bonuses, nothing but bullying. I was one of a bunch of people who tried very hard to work there but the turnover is very high. If you are not in the owner's pocket as a pet, you will get nowhere. There is no upward mobility, no excuses are tolerated, and working every hour of every day is expected. Being rude and impatient with employees is standard practice. Good luck to anyone wanting to work there.
Pros
there are no pros.
Cons
long hours with no incentive.

Fast paced and rewarding
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON12 May 2017
This is a staffing agency that helps employers find workers in times of increased production, new projects or to cover sick/absent employees etc. At the same time, they work with unemployed and underemployed people who are in immediate need of work and income and are looking for an opportunity to gain full-time employment, experience, and to get their foot in the door. TSC happily links the two. It's not glamorous work but it provides a need at both ends. Yes, it can be stressful and fast-paced but it's also rewarding.
Pros
Pay, Benefits, free parking
Cons
hours

Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Lindsay, ON27 April 2018
The staffing connections office staff are very kind and knowledgeable. Jobs given out are those that accommodate your work ability. The job I have currently allows me to work the mornings and have the afternoon for recreation and leisure ( a social life). Work is fulfilling and the people you will have the pleasure to get to know are wonderful.
Pros
Have the afternoons off
Cons
Having to wake up really early

would not recommend
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Ontario29 September 2016
seems ok at first then they hit you with unrealistic expectations, expect you to devote entire life without the compensation - rather than supporting employees, harass them into doing things
Pros
coworkers are funny and try to see the best light, lots of freedom
Cons
long hours, bosses are rude, expect you to jump through hoops

Aweful place to work
Administration (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON15 August 2016
Your expected to work till your last breathe. Some days you'll work 20+ hour days, no breaks, no appreciation. No compassion, no appreciation, no raises, little pay for the amount your expected to do. Consistent Harrasement and nagging. Very small timed deadlines nearly impossible to meet. This is for both TSC and level a. Had experience at both level a and TSC
Pros
Nothing
Cons
