Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee), West Chester, PA – January 6, 2014
Pros: pay check
Cons: bad employer
i worked at assignment with them where it ended and got called back and they told me I was returning back to the assignment and never heard back from them, I called them after not hearing back a few days later and they said they made a mistake calling me. That is terrible. They don't keep in touch with there clients well at all.
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee), Horsham, PA – June 27, 2013
Cons: they take the clients' money and run.
don't hesitate to say no to them. they just don't care about you. all they care about is getting their commission and running away. expect to get fired from your client because PeopleShare do nothing to help you.
i cant tell you that (Former Employee), i cant tell you that – June 17, 2013
I would say that this company is a terrible company to work for, but, that would be a huge understatement.
They will try to not pay you for the work you do. They will try to take back money that they have already paid you.
They don’t look at your qualifications when placing you at a job. If you ask for a specific kind of job they ignore your request, – more... and give you some excuse as to why you are not qualified to work in the kind of job you requested.
They will lure you in with one kind of job then give you something completely different. They will try to pay you the lowest wage possible.
If you can, try to find out what company you will be working for, and then apply to that job, before giving peopleshare the satisfaction of sticking it to you. – less
Recruiter (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – May 16, 2013
-The pace took a while to get used to, Staffing is an industry that constantly changes and your priorities can shift at any given moment during the day. The key is to role with the punches and adapt. You'll either get it or you won't.
-I learned so much about how I best work and adapt. There is plenty of coaching and management is very much involved – more... on a daily basis.
-Loved working in such a tight knit team atmosphere you have to rely on your other recruiters to fill positions and help you source, qualify, and prep candidates. – less

Warehouse (Former Employee), Pottstown. Pa – February 27, 2013
Cons: will waste your time, make you drive out of the way "bait and switch" job offers
Lure you in with a promise of a job but when you get there they try to stick you with a different job that pays considerably less. Staff tries to juggle multiple candidates where simple details on their end get overlooked. Very unprofessional set up without a doubt the worst employment agency I ever had to deal with. If i were you I would seriously – more... consider dealing with another employment agency. – less
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee), Burlington, NJ – February 26, 2013
this is a temporary company...i have to say thank you...they got me a job the first day i walked in the door...very nice staff...however, all paychecks are directly deposited, and i never got a paystub...they are supposed to be emailed to you. After 5 times of giving my email address, I still never received paystubs. If I needed them, I would have to – more... go to the office to get them. Another thing is, theres always confusion about the hours worked...for example...if you want to know the hours worked before you get hired permanently...they tell you the company knows that, when the company was the one to ask you to ask them to begin with...so i don't know....but overall i was satisfied – less
Prospective temp to hire (Former Employee), Pottstown, PA – February 25, 2013
Cons: prone to mistakes, can't admit fault
Has to be hands down one of the worst employment agencies to be assigned jobs by. I imagine the majority of positive reviews are ballot stuffers that work for peopleshare as recruiters. If responding to an ad for them be prepared to drive thirty plus minutes away even though there may be an office right by you. I responded to an ad through Craigslist – more... and I was called by a recruiter at one office (30 minutes away). When I got there the job was magically filled but he tried to put me in another job that was paying dramatically less. I added my info to their database ensuring to disclose that I had a retail theft misdemeanor charge two years ago. He said that it wasn't a problem but some jobs won't accept me with it. I visually watched him add it to my record at which he informed me that all peopleshare have access to my information. A few days later I get a call from Melanie from their Pottstown branch. She said she had a job for me in my area. I assumed she read through my file and already matched up my information with the prospective job client. Long story short I traveled the 30 minutes out of the way to their office, took the drug test, spent three hours in a testing session all to have Melanie call me the day before I was supposed to start and say I couldn't work there because of my theft charge. I was mildly annoyed since I wasted all this time when someone on their end dropped the ball on paying attention to details but I took the highroad and just said "we'll thank you for trying sorry it didn't work out its no problem." She then becomes dismissive and begins to give me attitude. The audacity of someone who couldn't do her job right give me gruff about it. She said it was a problem because the client was promised a worker the next day she then accused me of not disclosing the indie when she submitted a background check. (She never asked me about it and the form was a simple form there wasn't a spot to list it) At this point I became increasingly annoyed and asked if she saw it on my file. She stammered and then made some excuses and the n finally admitted to seeing it but said there was no date and she thought it was over five years ago. (Which was a lie because if she had seen it it would of automatically dismissed me since the client would automatically refuse me on the grounds of the theft charge.) Unprofessional, overloaded and not very efficient. I'd seriously consider working through another agency. – less
