    Pros

    Get paid weekly. The money goes straight into my bank account. Online courses are available to improve your knowledge of your field.

    Cons

    The benefits package is not that great. The company needs to come up with a better medical insurance package. Can find a better one online.

    Pros

    It's a great way to keep your resume active while looking for a job. If you are new to an area, it also helps you learn how to navigate the streets, traffic, and rush hour bottle necks to avoid.

    Cons

    the pay is often lower than what you would get for a permanent job.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Accountemps is flexibility on location. The team works closely with you to find the right position within your requested area.

    Cons

    I've not found any cons for working with Accountemps. They are like any other employer, except that have more access to great shot term positions.

    Pros

    *By culling the references of candidates they have a wide network of hiring managers to harrass for assignments *Can keep you working if you ignore their shadiness and need $ fast

    Cons

    *You are probably being paid 45-55% of what they charge their clients *Pay rates go back an forth- not based on your qualifications but based on what they think the client will pay *High turn-over on their staff with a sales mentality

    Advice to Management

    Have some integrity

    I worked at Accountemps

    Pros

    Flexible Ok in a pinch when you just get out of school and you need something fast. Actually worked to find me a position that would become full time eventually.

    Cons

    If you fine a full time position outside of their purview and you work for ascension health they let you go at the end of the week after you give notice.
