    Pros

    I can't think of any, I was treated like a temperary employee with no chance of being hired thruogh there employment service.

    Cons

    Was lied to right from the begining, offered one job, and sent to a different assignment, told one salary then paid a smaller one. Nothing I was told ever happened they way they said it would. Then I have mild stroke have to go on unemployment for the first time in my life, and they refuse to pay my claim. That's the kind of company they are.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like real people, no like some number on a computer screen. If if was'nt for them none of you woukld have a job.

  2. Very frustrating, due to age discrimination.

    Pros

    Access to excellent companies central locations.

    Cons

    Does not fairly distribute assignments, based on age, work history.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to employ only people on welfare or other forms of public assistance(social services). It isn't fair to those of us who have bothered to get college degrees.

  3. Do not work for this company

    Pros

    You got access to the Google cafeteria.

    Cons

    Worst company ever. I should have known what I was getting myself into since I was hired on the phone within less than three minutes of the interview. Also, if you want to be move up, prepared to be sexually harassed by gross, married men.

    Pros

    Honestly, no pros that I can recall.And that's a SHAME!

    Cons

    I don't have enough time or space for this category. Straight to the point, avoid dealing with the Cobb county branch all together. Unprofessional on ALL levels of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Please refer to the previous information provided in the Pros and Cons sections.

    Pros

    Ability to work with the largest staffing agency in the US and the world. This affords many positive opportunities. Solid organization which has done a nice job of cutting out the red tape. Organization is committed to their employees from a training and development perspective, in partcular Recruiters, on-sites and branch managers.

    Cons

    The company is going the wrong direction!!! Very apparent to see the organization, which once had a nice balance, is now ONLY about finding a way to making more money!!! Some examples are the closing of the Melville location, not replacing individuals in key positions/segments and making foolish career decisions on solid producers. The company values of cool head, warm heart and working hands needs to be replaced with GROW THE RETURN ON SALES OR ELSE!! Senior leadership is running scared!!! Lastly salaries for branch staff is excessively low!!

    Advice to Management

    Profit is highly important and necessary but dragging bodies behind to accomplish it at all costs is not what made Adecco the largest in the world

  11. The racist temporary agency

    Pros

    There are best reason if your Hispanic then your good, any other race they lie an do unnecessary things to hardworking individuals that makes it hard to get a true review.

    Cons

    The challenges are the lies and the dishonesty they give African Americans.

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to stop the hate crimes because it will determine your future and karma is an existing factor.
