Recruiter

Recruiter (Former Employee)
Remote, OR

I worked at Adecco full-time for more than a year

ProsGood opportunity to work in multiple industries, flexible location, full time

ConsI left for a better opportunity but saw many managers and colleagues being eliminated shortly after to save a buck. Replaced with entry level making 12 dollars an hour. They seem to be moving toward cheap inexperienced labor and it's resulting in losing contracts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros of working Contract Assignments

Data Entry (Current Employee)
Belleville, MI

I have been working at Adecco as a contractor for less than a year

ProsI was fully tested to find out where I would be best suited and placed where another temp agency refused to consider placing me. Their office staff were very considerate of the time of their potential/current employees, and were patient with mistakes I made in the online filling out of their time sheets. I would work for them again in a heartbeat as they treated me as they would an investor in their company - with value, intelligence and integrity.

ConsSome of the assignments are too short.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue valuing your employees as you do and you will have no end of willing and able staff to draw on for your assignments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
