    Pros

    I received my first assignment rather quickly and received good feedback. The pay was very good for my first assignment.

    Cons

    I have not had any work since the first assignment and do not know if I will be referred to any other positions. It seems good going in, but they must have a large pool of people to work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees become better recruiters by additional training and support. Give them the opportunity to help people fine tune their resumes if necessary.

    Pros

    haven't found any and its been a year i signed up for work with them.

    Cons

    never found work for me. just sent me as fillers for interviews for jobs that weren't suitable to me.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to people your recruiters take in , they take in a lot of people just to fill their quto, which is unfair to people.

    Pros

    If you are seeking accounting or finance entry level positions, this is not a bad place to start, especially if you can get a temp-to-perm position.

    Cons

    Low pay for temp workers. You are basically on your own when it comes to placement. Keep checking their website and try to apply for jobs on your own, don't expect staffing managers to call you otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more
