    I worked at Accountemps as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Many jobs, nationwide, known name

    Cons

    Low pay, no benefits, if you get stuck with a dud of a recruiter you are stuck until they leave the company, you are just a number not a person

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for consultants to change recruiters. Invest in your consultants. Quantify and clarify the needs of your consultants AND clients. Stop just throwing bodies at jobs without matching skills. Become more competitive with pay and benefits.

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

    Pros

    Even though you barely see or hear from the people that interviewed you. They place you in a really great work environment. If you don't like it then they will find another.

    Cons

    They cannot guarantee a full time position. They will tell you, what they were told, but the final decision is not there's.

    I have been working at Accountemps as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    They are very attentive to your needs when you are being placed and on assignment. They not only want to be sure the client is happy but that you are satisfied as well. They have an easy time card approval process and you are paid quickly after the approval process.

    Cons

    The only cons I have found is when an assignment is coming to a close I don't feel that there is enough follow up to try to place you in another assignment at the end of that one. I also feel that because you are on assignment for them with one company that they are not looking at you as much for long term to perm positions that come available during that shorter term assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it would be good if you have candidates that are looking for perm work that even if you have them in one assignment that you contact them about other possible assignments that come up that they may be a good fit for.

    I have been working at Accountemps

    Pros

    1. got me a interview with a client company real quick( 2 days after my meeting with the recruiter).
    2. there are some online training courses

    Cons

    1. the staffing managers dont reply to my emails on time. One said he would call back me back the second he received my call but never actually returned my call.
    2. little time for you to consider wether to take the job or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please put more effort in training the staffing managers and really pay the contractors what they are worth.

    I have been working at Accountemps

    Pros

    None! None! None! None! None!

    Cons

    Hello, the 80's want their wages back! A period of unemployment does not equate to low-ball hourly rates. Even worse, your recruiters justifying the low wage by taking cheap-shots at 28 yrs. of skills and experience. Paid less than a high school / college intern. I know what my client is paying Accountemps and they are making a ton of money off my back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop exploiting the temporary contractors. And when I call off, don't contact my emergency contacts! This is the greediest agency I have ever worked for, and once I'm finished with this contract-- never again! Medical benefit is horrible.

    Salary is an issue

    I have been working at Accountemps

    Pros

    Working for Accountemps is great as far as the people being there to support you but the salary is insulting. In these poor economic times, people have no choice and I believe the temp agencies know it.

    Cons

    Again, the compensation is actually insulting to me. I do believe people are being taken advantage of in these economic times. If you are offered something, anything, you have to take it.
