A typical day at work was professional and always busy. Everything was organized and planned correctly. If a job challenge came up, a meeting was conducted to plan a good job plan and the work was done correctly and safely.

This job gave me a new perspective on life. I learned how fortunate we are to be in this country and how we don't take full advantage of everything we have. We tend to take things for granted and not realize how rich we are to have what we do.

Wasnt too pleased with the Way management handled Crew. Very One sided. Alot of Favoritism along with low Balled Pay. MAybe it was just the crew i was on. But if the company as a whole is the same, Then i would not want to be apart of it again
Imbassador (Current Employee) – Wooster, OH – March 3, 2017
As an ambassador, I post on online forums of the benefits of studying abroad, specifically in Spain. I work with the Off-Campus Studies department at my school with events they plan for students who are thinking of studying abroad. The most enjoyable part of my job is relaying my experiences and the hardest part of my job is my tasks being mostly online because I enjoy getting to know the other ambassadors.
Discussing my experience abroad with people who want to know about it.
I remember when we had an external audit on my warehouse they left my warehouse with zero findings, they saw warehouse really nice and clean, we had an average of 20 shipments per day and shipments were always on time.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Price Rd. Brownsville, TX – July 1, 2016
A typical day was organizing the day and preparing for a fast paced day. Preparing for meetings and doing assessments. Meeting with the children and providing with their weekly phone calls. Taking notes of the child's needs and asking the children regarding their well being. Preparing exiting packets for the children that will be discharged. Multi tasking preparing for staffing and other assessments that needed to be completed.
I recently had an interview with IES to become an outside sales rep, and overall I was really impressed with the business plan and product being pitched. The major question mark here is that the company wishes to sign all of their reps to independent contracts.
I understand why this is the way they would want to go, but there are some attributes to the hiring process that probably should classify perspective candidates as employees and not IC's.
The three major characteristics of separating the two classifications of employment are behavioral, financial, and type of relationship. As an independent contractor with IES they are going to control what and how the worker does their job. There would also be an ongoing relationship with the company heads as well. Perhaps the biggest concern was the company setting hours for the contractors with very limited flexibility.
Again, I think the overall company is positive, but they may have some worker misclassification issues arise in the future. If you are looking to sign on with them understand your rights as an IC first before you accept.
Not an organized office. Very misleading. Not a positive atmosphere. Was not able to get password for their data entry program and then blamed me for not being able to learn the program on time. For 4 weeks I was only able to answer phones and filing.

Although I enjoy working for IES, it is a small company and I am at risk of getting laid off due to a lack of work. I need a more secure working environment. The benefits package could be better to but it is a small company and are limited.

IES is a great staffing agency to work for. They are very understanding, and flexible, they give just about anyone a chance to work thru them. They have a good selection of jobs to choose from, and the wage is decent.
The overall service that the staffing service provided was excellent. There were certain entities that made the process harder than it needed to be at times. Would recommend IES to any one starting out
