Working as a Temp
Office Assistant (Current Employee), Alexandria VAMay 21, 2014
A typical day at work consist of processing paperwork, sending emails, and filing. I have learned how to organize better as well as techniques for filings.

Management on my current job could be alot better. These is very little communication and the environment is not too friendly.

My co-workers are for the most part pleasant.

The hardest part of – more... my job is being able to communicate with management because they really don't care for the temps. – less

Senior Staffing Supervisor (Former Employee), Washington, DCMay 9, 2014
Pros: fantastic management and colleages, good work/life balance.
Cons: burn out industry
Staffing can be a harsh and draining business and this is no different. The difference comes in the people you work with. The staff and management act as a team and have a very "open door" policy. People can handle a bad day far better when they are surrounded by people who lift them up and that is very true here. Staffing isn't for everyone and that – more... is fine, but this company will give you the best shot at success. – less

The people don't seem to care and want to make sure you get a job.
Contractor (Former Employee), McLean, VAFebruary 20, 2014
SPARKS is well known for playing favorites. They only do their best work for the people who have the most connections or well known connections. Also, since they get compensation for contract/temporary placement they will not work hard to find you a job that you can be hired on full time because they then lose the money the were receiving keeping you – more... as a client. – less

Personnel/ HR Assistant (Current Employee), Washington DCOctober 25, 2013
Pros: private industry - great job security
Cons: sales requirements/ not being able to help everyone
The SPARKS team is like extended family. Everyone is hard working and willing to help one another. I learned the ins and outs of being an admin assistant with HR responsibilities. I gained a stronger customer service history dealing with candidates in and out of the office as well. The hardest part of my job is telling people that we don't have anything – more... for them or that they didn't get a position they applied for. The most enjoyable part would be the end satisfaction of seeing a deserving candidate land a great job. – less

Great organization gaining strength
Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 8, 2013
Hired by the President/CEO to lead sales and marketing. Based in Philly, I did this for 6 years based out of a home office in Chicago; travel was weekly and extensive. Realigned sales force into hunters and gatherers, rebranded Sparks, grew top-line sales and RFP opportunities. Liked the challenge of working with multiple offices. When Sparks purchased – more... another Philadelphia exhibit firm, there was duplicity in leadership roles and location became more important to senior management. I left voluntarily with a package. – less

Not a good experience
Loan Servicing Specialist (Former Employee), Frederick, MDMay 23, 2013
Pros: pay, benefits, full-time hours
Cons: hours not flexible, management, communication, more concerned about appearances
The agency assigned me to work at Wells Fargo. The pay was good, and I had the opportunity to obtain a full-time position. The hours did not work very well with my other job at the theater. The managements at the agency put on a show that they are nice and polite, but often come off as passive-aggressive, and were blatantly rude to me on more than one – more... occasion. The office experience was valuable and I don't regret taking the job, but I would never work with that temp agency again. – less

Student Assistant (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALMay 14, 2013
Pros: flexible hours and expanded knowledge in neuroscience
Cons: tedious work
As a lab assistant you had to conduct various experiments. I would say it did expand my knowledge a lot on microbiology and neuroscience. The job was sometimes stressful if you didn't get a project done on time.
