Machine Builder specialist (Current Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – February 9, 2019
I have been with Spark for a while - there are many / better opportunities out there It’s time to move on. Machine builders are now flooded with inexperienced people / some that can not properly read prints and assemble builds as required Looking for a more stable environment
When your busy it’s great
Not enough established clients and dealing with managers that are inexperienced in the business
Temp Worker (Former Employee) – Webberville, MI – January 16, 2019
Everything seems cool the reps you meet are nice and cool, but they send you to factory’s that don’t keep time of you’re pay then screw you out of you’re pay. For the hours you worked. I’m still to this day short almost 4 days worth of pay at 8 hours a day and they refuse to pay me
Leader (Current Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – June 22, 2018
This company is great to work for! They truly care about the employees well-being and I love coming to work every single day! The company is growing every single year and finds ways to put the investment back into the employees!
Leadership support, innovation and flexibility
Environment will push you outside of your comfort zone. If you like staying contempt, this wouldn't be the best place for you!
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – March 11, 2018
This is a company that you want to work for if you are single and have a cut throat/sales mentality. It requires you to work a lot of hours to be successful and to sacrifice a lot to gain little in return. The manufacturing industry is a difficult industry to recruit for as the people are unreliable and seemed like they didn't want a job or would just waste your time.

Laborer (Former Employee) – Lapeer, MI – December 16, 2017
Its a temp agency so it was only a three week job. But they are nice people to work for. But there all the way in troy so the drive was far to get started with them. But the guy was nice enough to meet me closer sometimes.

Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – April 21, 2017
I've worked through this company a few times and found they don't take into consideration what really fits you. They send you out on any job even if it's not a fit for you which makes for a bad situation for you and the employer. They make promises they don't keep and I've never truly had an opportunity to work for a company that is a permanent hire, which was mandatory for me when interviewing although they ensured me they all were. My last placement for this company, I asked them several times to replace me and to find another position for this job because the company was prejudice against women in the manufacturing field they refused to replace me and I ended up walking out, so the company ended up having no one to fill the position and I looked like an unreliable employee. I tried to go to a boss higher up, but there is none. No relationship between employer and employee here.
for now placement
no future, lacks any personability between employer and employee
Welder/Parts Inspector (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – March 14, 2017
I reported to work everyday. The job was exactly as my recruiter explained it to me, no surprises. I got follow up calls to see how the job was and was being treated fairly. The human resource department was very helpful, any paperwork that was needed to be filled out, was complete and processed the same day.

Contractor (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – June 8, 2016
Although it takes a while to get a hired in position the recruiters stay in constant contact. If there's ever an issue they will help you resolve it quickly. If you need a certain placement type or shift to work around school or everyday life, they will be more than happy to work with you.
employee (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – November 17, 2015
Decent opportunity here at this company, but being micromanaged and not appreciated (financially and emotionally) eventually forced me out. You can only be treated poorly for so long before you develop resentment. Great group of people working there, but the owner and top management just don't understand people or how to lead and motivate. Really unfortunate.
tight knit group, casual fridays
low base salary, low comission rates, poor morale and working environment
Good work facilities, but poor working expectations and immensely stressful.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – July 16, 2015
A typical work day entailed arriving at 7:30am followed by an 8:00am company meeting to review new job orders as well as to provide updates regarding the status of current job orders. From there the recruiters multi-tasked between recruitment, sales, and handling new hire paperwork and contract employee concerns. At 3:00pm there was another company meeting to discuss the progress made throughout the day and provide candidate status updates. Upon completion of this meeting it was back to sourcing, recruiting, sales, and handling employee concerns. This kept the recruitment staff in the office until 7:00pm or later as well as on Saturdays and occasionally Sundays.
Competitive commission structure, as well as a close working relationship with colleagues.
Work life balance, negative communication towards employees, base salary was low
