    Pros

    Nice people to work for. They have a variety of computer tests so that they and you can evaluate your skills, such as Medical Billing, Coding, Excel, Medical Secretary, etc. They are understanding that you need to take time off to go on permanent job interviews.

    Cons

    When they say that the job is temp to perm, don't believe it. You don't get paid holidays or sick days, or PTO. Health insurance is lousy and you will have to pay 100% of it.

  3. Good autonomous position.

    Pros

    Laid back and relaxed working environment. Little to no conflict and very little stress.

    Cons

    Lack of Training.
    Employees do not get along well with people who are different than them.
    Certain departments are way different than others. Your experience will really depend on the position, your assignment, and how well they regard your abilities

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps a more indepth interview and "getting to know" one's strengths would be more conducive to finding a better fit with your clients.

    Pros

    Great staff. Keeps in touch to see how's the employee is doing. No hard to get someone on the phone.

    Cons

    Time sheet process could a bit of tweaking. The online entry is perfect. could use online approval and submitting instead of faxing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the friendly, caring approach. A lot of people I know would like to be part of an agency that doesn't treat it's staff like cattle.

  8. They usually find jobs in the field you are qualified in - training for personal growth is excellent

    Pros

    Finds the job which means not too much searching- usually eager and helpful. They also negotiate the wage. After 1 year you could have benefits with RHI.

    Cons

    Major issue - some jobs do not become full time and someone will be left doing the temp. job for a long period of time.

    Advice to Management

    If a person is a good worker at a particular company for a long period of time it the agency should increase their wages and give other benefits.
