Vaco has a very laid back work environment. The culture is very friendly and competitive. I learned how to recruit for accounting, HR, finance, and administrative positions which was my favorite part of the job.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – October 17, 2018
I worked as a consultant for about five months. My first contract was a local site, but once it was completed, I was invited to continue with the company on similar contracts elsewhere. Every weekend, I would fly to the job site, or drive if it was close enough. I hadn't gotten to travel much before working for Vaco, so I was happy to visit areas of the country that I had not seen before. Reimbursement for travel and parking fees was fast and accurate. Pay was similarly correct and punctual. My coworkers were generally easygoing and seemed to enjoy their work. Supervisors worked right alongside the regular employees, and recognized workers that performed well. I very much enjoyed my time working there, and consider it my favorite job out of those I've held.
Travel if you enjoy it, great supervisors and coworkers, enjoyable work
Medical benefits are minimal, travel if you dislike flying
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – October 4, 2018
Not an ideal place to work, unless you're just starting out... Then, maybe it's for you, if you like contracts. They rush you through the entire process because they're SO concerned about numbers, money, and figures, but they don't care.
SYSTEMS ANALYST, BUSINESS ANALYST (Former Employee) – Fairborn, OH – September 7, 2018
I worked for client ALLY bank which was outstanding in all areas. My employer was VACO which I had no interaction with until 3 months prior to my contract ending. (VACO was in Detroit and I was in Dayton so did not have chance to have much involvement due to distance between locations.)
did not get to interact much with VACO team, just client team
AML Investigator (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – August 30, 2018
The company I worked for Capital One was not a great company to work for my training was two days and the work environment was highly stressed and the material you are given to follow as guidelines are missing pieces and its like being stranded on an island with no map or water.
Nice building, cafes, parking garage
not enough training, too many computer hiccups, poor management
AP Specialist (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – August 18, 2018
Lack of communication, persistant but a disrespectful persistent. 23 text msgs, 5 emails and phone calls in one day. Then strongly suggests wearing a suit on an interview. Who owns a suit in swfl in 100° weather.
Learning & Development Specialist- Contractor (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – August 13, 2018
My experience with Vaco has shown me that their employees are very professional and they truly care about the happiness of their Contractors. This has been my first experience as a contractor and I loved it.
Lead Technician (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 2, 2018
Vaco is a great place to work for my only regret is that they didn't have a permanent position to offer me. The supervisors were friendly and yet firm, while demonstrating absolute professionalism. I was brought in as a temp given and given an opportunity to work my way up into a leadership role in just weeks. Thank you vaco.
working for Vaco was interesting. although it is a temporary agency they have quality clients which I was able to be exposed to. I had a variety of companies that I was open to work for. the recruiters were friendly and very helpful.
Content Analyst/Point of Contact (Current Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – June 19, 2018
I really liked to work for VACO in the beginning because there was vision and communication. After some managers left and the vision of the project got lost I did not like to work for VACO anymore. It seems like VACO only wants new projects and forgets to 'take care' of it's people in older projects.
Help Desk/Customer Support (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – June 7, 2018
I did not really work FOR Vaco. I worked for a company that paid Vaco to pay me. I have had to repeatedly contact Vaco to talk to someone about pay being done correctly and on time. I have had to contact them numerous times to get them to try and find a next placement for me. They seem like nice people but also seem that they don't want bothered with me.
