Pros: it's a job to get you by. sure beats living on the street.
Cons: low pay for whse workers, general lack of opportunities for advancement
One thing I've noticed in these reviews is a lack of identification of the job site. Were these people working for Jacobsen at a Jacobsen warehouse/facility, or were placed somewhere through Jacobsen Staffing? Even though the employer is technically Jacobsen, that makes a big difference in job quality, assignments, workplace attitude, etc. If you were working at location 'X' and having issues with coworkers or management, you really need to identify whether it was a Jacobsen issue or a location issue, or possibly both. I've worked for staffing agencies (mainly Sedona), and had good experiences with the jobsite, but had issues with the temp agency. The reverse has also been true, where the problems were due to the location, not the staffing agency (other than Sedona). We have a Jacobsen office here, also with a warehouse that stores and supplies parts for Deere. Deere has had some interesting site policies that can create problems, but that's not Jacobsen's fault. On the flip side, Jacobsen has had their share of issues as well. The staffing side places people all over town, with good and bad reviews, but again, part is a Jacobsen issue, part from the location, and part from the worker. There are far too many people who just like to whine about everything, and feel entitled to get without giving much in return.
