When I had an interview with a recruiter from Insource, she told me that I would be working full time (and expected to work overtime during peak seasons) and she told me I would receive a performance pay. When I asked about the performance pay, she said that I would have a base pay ($9 p/ hour) and depending on my work performance, I can earn anywhere from $0.25 to $3.00 extra. Even though I was hesitant about $9 a hour, I happily took the position because I had been looking for work for almost 2 years.On my first day, other Insource employees warned me not to get too excited about the performance pay because it was rarely awarded. After a solid month of working with Insource, I see why other employees were saying this. Within 30 days, I was making (on average) $12.15 an hour and I can run circles around a lot of the other employees. I quickly noticed that the employees who were complaining were the slow ones who wanted to talk with their buddy all the time! A manager is not always breathing down your back and I took advantage of the situation by being a productive worker. Others would find opportunities to hop on their phones when managers were not around and they were not being productive (your productivity is tracked on a computer).After a month of working with Insource, they certified me on a forklift and taught me how to drive one. I still managed to keep my performance up and then after roughly 2 months of working, Insource promoted me to a safety coordinator. Also, when peak season began to slow down and hours had to be cut, my hours stayed the same (except overtime). I thought it was hilarious that the unproductive/lazy workers complained and threatened management when they went from 48 hours a week to 15 (gee, I wonder why?). They should of considered themselves lucky because from previous experience with other labor companies, they don't cut your hours when times slow. They simply cut you and replace you with another person when peak season returns a year later.I do not look at Insource as a temporary labor agency. From past experience working with Aerotek, regardless of how good you are, they will not hesitate to let you go. At Insource, if you do what is expected from you and do it well, they recognize it with higher pay and promotions (forklift and safety coordinator). I have now been with the company for 7 months and my supervisor told me that I am going to be promoted to a lead.Yes, the work is very difficult at times but also rewarding. Just with my forklift certification, I could leave Insource and go work for a company on a forklift for $13 an hour (after I get more experience). I am not going to do this to Insource because of the opportunities they have given me, but my point is that if you are willing to work hard, you can slowly climb the ladder at Insource and add more positive/leadership experience to your resume.

I recently relocated from the west coast to Charlotte, due to my husband's job transfer. We had a few telephone conversations and I realized I needed their assistance. I engaged their services and we began with telephone sessions on the weekends. I was employed at the time, so that was best for my schedule. My main concern was with finding an employer that suited my criteria in a job and also gave me a sense of growth. King Career's insight and progressive techniques were spot on in filtering this information. We fine tuned that ideal job criteria. Going through these sessions gave me a greater understanding of what I truly wanted in my career and as a by-product I became more aware of my past mistakes when transitioning to a new company. Coupled with some polishing of my resume and cover letter, I began to feel better about myself as a more marketable applicant. My final piece was the extensive interview preparation. This allowed me to easily react in any situation.
I needed a lot of work on my resume. It had been a while since I had updated it. King Career's experts took me through multiple sessions. They were helpful using varying angles to extract information even I had not thought of when looking through my past achievements. The content reflected these enhancements. Next we focused on the layout and after showing me multiple formats, we agreed on one that looked perfect from my perspective. After we finished the layout, we moved on to what I felt was the most agonizing part, that was shortening the overall length of the resume. It is very difficult, for me, to eliminate my own words. However, bouncing this off of a professional makes it a little easier and gives clarification. The final product is far superior to what I originally came in with.I also want to say that the other aspects of their services were excellent. I enjoyed the interview preparation, since those sessions tied a lot of my resume updates into it.
King Career is worth its weight in gold!I'm actually currently employed, but we were told layoffs were pending. I wanted to be proactive to get ahead of my competition as the inevitable job search began. I thought I would need "some" assistance, but I couldn't believe all the little things that became big things as I quickly realized that I needed a great deal of help in the world of career transition. It had been six years since I had made a resume or gone on an interview. Honestly, I didn't have many contacts. I have been working with King Career on all aspects of their program. This process continues to help me daily. I recommend anyone in my shoes (working but looking for change) consider using King career to guide you. Their vast networking techniques have expanded my area of search tenfold. I feel confident that when my current company closes, I will be ready to easily move right into a new company.
Personalized one-on-one service!I partnered with King Career Consultants to help guide my career path. I was unsure what direction I wanted in my career up to that point in my life. Even with a Masters degree, I had been working various jobs and never felt directed, accomplished or making the income that I felt I deserved, especially for as hard as I work. I would interview and accept positions just because I thought that turning one down would be rude to the employer. Utilizing King Career Consultants five phase process was extremely helpful! Honestly it was an eye opener to learn that it was my lack of preparedness all along that was keeping me from landing a decent interview, and that in no way did I have to accept an offer if the position did not meet my needs. Now I feel prepared to not only find the right companies to interview with, but tackle any interview and win!
King Career Consultants got me up and running!I had taken some time off due to an illness and had decided to re-enter the job market. I was completing a project for my current employer. I felt lethargic and overwhelmed. This is when I realized that I needed a change.I found King Career Consultants online and engaged their services after meeting the crew. I was impressed with how fluid the program was and we were able to accelerate the process with some after-hours meetings. Jerry was amazing with his insights and teachings. Based on all of King Career's information and expertise, I landed in my ideal company.I now feel energized about my future career path.
King Career helped to focus my activities and give me momentum in searching for my next position.My job search was in a rut and leading nowhere, King Career rescued me.Based on the fulfillment, excitement and salary at my new position their fee was worth multiple times what I paid for. I felt relief and satisfaction that I had teamed up with a company that truly cared about my well being and obtaining a position I could truly thrive in. We discussed multiple directions and scenarios as to targeting my search. It was good to have someone at my side to bounce my thoughts off of.I want to thank King Career for their guidance and insight.
Built my confidence level.I enjoyed working with King Career Consultants.Your coaching and guidance during my career transition gave me the necessary tools and techniques that I needed to build up my confidence level and become a more successful and marketable individual.My time spent was most enjoyable and informative.Each meeting gave me another building block toward my next position.My confidence was increased and this helped me when meeting with others in networking situations and interviews.Thanks again!
After spending 16 years in out side sales, working in different markets,when I found my self looking for employment I was pleasantly surprised that my recruiter Justin took the time to make sure he placed me in a job where my skill sets would be better utilized,so that it made sense for my employer as well as myself. I have never been through staffing agency but can say the job I'm currently working for is exactly what I have been looking for my entire career.
The owner and his staff were very helpful in my situation. I needed to ship three large boxes to a new business location. However my plans changed and I needed the boxes back. I was very thankful to have Mail & Copy Express step in and take charge. At times like this the large shipper seem like talking to the government because I was getting no response or just mistakes and incompetence. Thank you again guys.
