Fine when there were jobs available. But, often there were not.
Assembly, packaging, machine operator (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – December 29, 2016
Often sporadic jobs, sometimes limited projects available. No benefits offered, Won't offer a minimum rate of pay if the worker is sent home before two hours. $50 bonus if you refer someone to WorkBox. But, WorkBox must send employee on assignment for worker to obtain bonus.
$50 for anyone who refers a good (working) candidate to WorkBox.
Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – December 28, 2016
Major issue the job didn't even match my resume I thought I would take it and deal with it but 8 hours no break no way. I went back asked if I could be placed somewhere else didn't meet my needs so I scrammed. Second time I went through them and wasn't satisfied
Asembler (Former Employee) – Grand Haven, MI – November 29, 2016
I worked via workbox. The video i watched did not relate to the job i was assigned to do. Also the reason the company gave to let me go was an utter lie. I was told well it is what it is, i had to accept it.
The job was fun, liked the people I worked with, learned a lot about the different jobs.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – November 14, 2016
The job was fun and a learning experience but, was sent home early twice, then was told to report at my scheduled time the following Monday. Than received a call Monday not to report due to my lack of performance and coming in to work.
learning new jobs.
no training, just put you on a job and never gave you a chance to learn the job to get familiar with it.

There's nothing good to say. Get ready for intimidation and a complete lack of respect. They'll scratch themselves and release gas your desk, knock you phone off the desk in disgust when they can't figure out the voicemail, storm around berating people, and change their minds about your direction without any reasons.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – White Cloud, MI – November 4, 2016
They were all pretty good companies that I work for. The work was okay wasn't too hard but sometimes the work spaces were too tight at time . AT times it felt like you didn't have enough room to work at a very fast pace. And if you were a temp there they didn't treat you like one of the regular employees.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – August 19, 2016
I liked that they always had assignments for me but the assignments never lasted long so i was never able to get any constant income. I would have loved to continue working for Workbox but I needed stability.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Michigan – June 7, 2016
Company makes every effort to match employees with positions that fit thier skills or interest. Takes time in interview to understand employee and what will make them successful in their next job. Workbox is only as successful as the employee is when starting a new job, our hope is that everybody has an opportunity to do a job that they enjoy whether short or long term assignments.
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) – Cedar Springs, MI – June 7, 2016
I have worked in the Staffing Industries for 27 Years and Workbox Staffing is by far the best company I have worked for. The owners and upper management are very involved to help you succeed in your position. You couldn't work for a better company then Workbox.
New Business Development Representative (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – June 7, 2016
I have been with Workbox Staffing since 2010 and have worked my way up within the company. The environment can be very fast paced, demanding and stressful at times but the rewards are worth the hard work. There is the potential to work long hours depending on customer demands. Upper management is doing their best to provide continuing education for their employees on HR laws and practices. Management also takes the time to hear ideas and concerns of their employees and does their best to implement ideas. I do believe management has our best interests in mind and want not only the company but their employees to be successful. My co-workers are great! They are funny, hard working and competitive. They care about the applicants and employees that we place by advocating for them. The hardest part of the job is that we cannot guarantee people for our customers and they do get frustrated. The most enjoyable part of the job is hearing about success stories of our placements from both clients and employees. I truly believe we make a difference in the community and hope we continue on that path!
Flexibility, approachable management, friendly atmosphere, great vacation package that builds on longevity, medical is 100% paid for the employee
Business Development (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – May 12, 2016
Great company to work for. In the ever changing world that we live in, our management is always on top of the newest methods and software in the industry. They are always open to ideas and suggestions to make our lives easier. Your expectations are clear and you work towards those daily. There is a strong sense of "TEAM" in this company. The staff does what they can to help each other out no matter what branch you work at. They are very helpful and welcoming. They are a very hard working group of people and if you work hard you will love it too! I welcomed a new opportunity and have appreciated every bit of it. The staff genuinely cares about the welfare of the candidates that we place. My manager always says, "The best thing that you can give someone is an OPPORTUNITY"! We strive for this always.
Developmental Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – April 27, 2016
There is nothing positive about this company. The management were very discriminating, verbally abusive and belittling. The recruiters were rude to the temporary employees. Workbox Staffing offered low quality employees, made promises to clients they could not keep.
Laborer Worker (Former Employee) – Muskegon, MI – February 15, 2016
Finding a job is tough enough in Muskegon & the folks at Muskegon Workbox make it even tougher with 400 working hours paid to Workbox just for finding you a job. That ends up being a minimum of $400.00 & that's only IF they're only taking $1.00 an hour most the time it's anywhere from 2.00 to 3.00 an hour for 400 WORKING HOURS (do the math). Offer of low paying jobs ($9.00) is an insult. The front desk folks are a joke & are in no way skilled enough or educated on how a temp service is run. No one knows much of anything & the one that does isn't ever there. Go to Staffinginc, manpower or Adecco for decent work & better hourly pay. Workbox Staffing aka Phoenix personnel think $9.00 an houris good enough. It's 2016 not 1998 get it together.
terrible low pay, keep calling after you've found employment, greedy
