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

    Pros

    Great way to gain experience. RHI gets you working ASAP (more billing for them = more work for you)

    Cons

    Contracts tend to be on the longer side, so don't expect to move around a whole lot. Office team tends to be most in touch when trying to move you between contracts. The rest of the time they tend to ignore you.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The benefits and salary i guess!

    Cons

    Yes benefits and salary are nice, but at what cost to your dignity? Turnover rate at this company is extremely high and the strife you go through there is just not worth it in the end. People are always backstabbing each other and gossiping and just being extremely unprofessional overall. Think you can talk to management about this? guess again! the managers are the ones acting this way! You get ahead in this company by playing politics and favorites. If you aren't a favorite then prepare to be the whipping boy for all problems that arise. I have seen the worst salespeople be given the best opportunity to get ahead not by hard work, but by being best friends with management. They are not looking for hard workers, they are looking for members for a 2nd rate sorority hence the title! When things get tough watch your back because everyone will try to steal credit from you including the manager. Another issue, upper management has no idea what direction they are going to take ever! Your role can change often to the point that you don't know what you are even doing! Everyone there talks like a valley girl and they take much pride in having a vain existence. If you are a true professional and you are hoping to collaborate with other true professionals then i would pass on this opportunity. I wish I had. Before I accepted this role, I was told this very thing by another employer that I had an offer from, but I decided not to heed the warning due to medical benefits being extended from accountemps. In the end, it wasn't worth all the drama and i probably missed out on a great long term opportunity with great people elsewhere. The whole experience was very demoralizing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and politics. Be true leaders if you wish to motivate your employees!

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

    Pros

    My first Temp to Hire position with this company. - The Representatives are super nice on the phone. - They are very sympathetic and mentoring when I had concerns about the position I was placed in. - Great for someone just looking for work, or fresh out of college.

    Cons

    - Don't return phone calls in a timely manner, if at all. - Pay rate is low for Temporary placements. - Not eager to find you another position if you are not satisfied with the one you are in is not working out. - It appeared as though as long as you were bring in revenue they dodged your appeals.

    Advice to Management

    Solidify your staff management team. Be more responsive to your placements. Consider a lower commission for your company so that you can increase the pay of your placements.
