    Pros

    Friendly, supportive caring staff. Not just about the bottom line, they actually want what's best for you too

    Cons

    Nothing really, just the ones you would expect from a temp agency, so no complaints

    I have been working at Accountemps as a contractor

    Pros

    They seem to care whether or not they find a position for you. The interview process was thorough. My contact person appeared to want me connected with the position that is best suited for me.

    Cons

    The pay levels are not consistent for the same type of work. I would've liked to have been put to work the next day, however that wasn't possible.

    I worked at Accountemps as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the breadth of experiences and it confirmed many of my expectations.

    Cons

    None really, it is just a temp agency and it was all I expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering what they do, I don't think they can do it better.
    Basically, I think they are the best of a (other temp agencies) a rather bad lot.

    I have been working at Accountemps

    Pros

    Their representatives made me feel comfortable and at ease. They worked with me in locating positions only in the Cabarrus County area.

    I do not have anything negative to say about them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The staff was helpful and encouraging. I do not have any recommendations.

    Pros

    They work hard to place you in a good fit for your abilities. All recruiters seem to take an active interest in genuinely being interested in how your placement is working out.Treated like an employee not just a temp they place. Weekly pay is nice

    Cons

    Adjusting to the differences of each new assignment what they expect of you at the client's location

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better understanding of how valuable high-tech skills are if they are at an advanced level

    I have been working at Accountemps as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Called after couple days that I applied a job, and got to meet one of the recruiters one week later. In the same week, they offered me an assignment to work for a big international company. Although it is not good paid, but it is fair for a recent graduates. The staffs are very very nice, and do care about how you feel about the assignment.

    Cons

    Too bad that there is no raise or bonus even you do a decent job at work. Also, you have to check in with them every week. Sometimes it is just not much to say about work.
