    Reckless placements leading to dissatisfied clients and candidates

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe only pro i can see is the online education piece they off there candidates.

    ConsPoor communication, tries to force the placement and ends up with candidates who arrive on a job only to be dismissed because the placement was rushed and the client did not get a true picture of the candidate's true skill level.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Accountemps has treated me fairly and professionally.

    Temporary Associate (Current Employee)
    Perrysburg, OH

    ProsThis temp agency has provided me with a work environment when I was laid off from another position. They worked with me when the client did not offer the position requested.

    ConsThe client requested way more than what they needed, Accountemps could not respond until several weeks into the assignment. Lost in translation is a good analogy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is sometimes difficult to ask questions for benefits or training questions.

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

    They do a good job of getting you to work quickly.

    Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee)

    ProsThey found me a job quickly, the pay was decent and I had all the skills they required. I get paid weekly. They do have benefits. Once you do a temp job for them you have a better chance at a temp to hire position when they come up.

    ConsIt is a temp job with no chance of being permanent.

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