    I worked at Accountemps

    Pros

    I was never more that 1 day between jobs. I always felt that they were working really hard for me. They were very professional, yet comfortable to talk with.

    Cons

    I wish benefits could have been better? But something rather than nothing was a huge help!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving all benefit areas.

    I have been working at Accountemps full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Accountemps gave me an assignment over the summer to jump start my career and give life to my resume. Highly recommend working for them.

    Cons

    I only had to wait five days to be placed on an assignment but some placements can take longer depending on requested position and the current job market.

    Don't believe them when they say temp to hire

    I worked at Accountemps full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The on-line training is helpful.

    Cons

    The reason that you should not believe them when they say temp-to-hire, is on their contract with the employer it has a fee if the employer hires you, unlike most temp agencies which usually have a 1,000.00 fee (Kelley Services, etc.), Accountemps fee is 35% of your annual salary. Of course any company would be crazy to pay that fee, so just know when you get an assignment that it is only a long term temp position, because of this demand more money upfront, because once they hire you they will never raise your salary. Also unlike other temp agencies (K-force, etc.), once you are in an assignment, even if you are unhappy, they will not transfer you, you will just stay there until you quit or the assignment ends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually care about your employees, and pay them a living wage.
