    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

    Analyst / Accountant

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsVery good placement with Pacific Bell Analytical Section. Worked 60 to 70 hours a week for three months combining Accounts Payable equipment purchases for merging firms. Used Excel and Aces to form final results that we presented to the Board of Directors od Southern Bell. To maintain the hours needed Pacific Bell provided evening meals catered to reduce hours at installation.

    ConsOn assignments the regular employees are not very polite due to the merging of the firms may mean the loss of their jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management could have explained what we were doing to reduce resistance to our being there.

    A great bridge from college graduate to career professional.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey have many opportunities that can provide different experiences in the accounting field.They can range to small mom and pop shops to big Fortune 500 Companies. A huge stepping stone for those graduated with accounting major that have not found a position yet. Contracts can very well lead to permanent position.

    ConsContract work are temporary and duration can range.
