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.

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.
