Although staffing is a difficult job, working for Staffmark is great. Very helpful and supportive management team. Overall, Staffmark is a good place to work as long as you can handle how difficult the actual job is.
Factory Line Worker (Former Employee) – Sevierville, TN – August 26, 2016
My temp assignment was working at Mannon Specialty Foods. The pay isn't much at all compared to the work you have to do. Management treats you dirty like your a piece of trash, the work environment is aweful, and there are no benefits or potential to be hired full time. Stay away from staffmark and Mannon Foods!!!!
Team Lead/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Plainfield, IN – August 16, 2016
My shift was third shift from 10pm-6am. The job showed me that when putting my mind to something then I will outshine my co-workers. I received a raise of 2.50 within the first couple of months. The employment was through a temporary agency so there was no job security.
Getting paid while waiting on the trucks to arrive
The best thing about this company is that they are very supportive and go the extra mile to train employees. Even though it is a temporary postion. I gained valuable training and experience with this company.

overall staffmark is a great company, at certain sites where they put you at, employees are over worked and underpaid for their services. upper management doesnt really care for their employees, the company just wants to get all the work done no matter whats the cost.
catered lunches every last Friday of the month
not enough pay for the work that needed to be done

All that Staffmark hires for is physical labor and they use people up the best they can before getting reassigned or fired. If you ask for back braces or other OSHA required PPE, you're brushed off or assigned to the worse process on site as punishment.
There is no support from onsite leads or the assignments management. The dock leads were usually snobbish and dismissive of people usually waiting until the last hour of the day to say they are keeping people an extra couple hours to finish the work even though there is another shift coming in.

Not really thrilled working with Staffmark. They will send you on a job and if you request to be placed at another job, indicating that the job you are on is "not a good fit" and explain to them why it is not a good fit for you, they will not do anything about it and make you stay there. That is not good. This is the second time I worked with Staffmark, and neither experience has been very good. I will not use them again.
-A typical day was always fun. I enjoyed coming to work and I worked all the overtime I could get my hands on because I enjoyed what I was doing.
-I've learned the importance of quality control to maintain the satisfaction of the customer and to keep their business. I also learned shipping and receiving skills.
-My managers were great. They were very polite, professional, and always incouraged me to grow as a person and a member of a work team.
-My coworkers were great! I had just recently moved to Tennessee at that time and they were all very welcoming. I've made friends that I always had fun working with and will never forget. Though I now live back in New York, I still keep in touch with many of the people that I worked with there.
-The hardest part of the job was when I first started performing inspection, shipping, and receiving duties in the game console department. The work load was high and fast paced but at least it got me in better shape. I didn't know where anything was or how to inspect the consoles, but it wasn't long before I knew it all like the back of my hand. The next hardest part was unfortunately being laid off. As well as all of the other temp workers in the company.
-The most enjoyable part was the work itself and especially the people. Everyone was very nice and welcoming and we had a great time. I love video games so having the opporotunity to learn about game systems was something that interested me.
Great people, fun work, free lunches, opporotunity to grow, health benefits, incentives.
Unfortunately we all had to be laid off as the company shipped many of the jobs overseas.
