    I worked at Accountemps part-time

    Pros

    there are several recruiters that can offer you different positions.

    Cons

    The person who pitched the job called me a few days later because the company wanted me to go back for a second interview. Instead, they offered me another position without even letting me know the hourly rate. I later found out the position that was initially offered to me was given to another person for less than what was offered to me. I also found out that the recruiters takes 50% of our paychecks.

    I have been working at Accountemps part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They try to be as professional as much as they can, but not really. If you have been looking for a job like crazy they will find one for you, but they will under-pay you and assign you to jobs that you are over-qualify to perform. They get 50% of your actual wage. I was making 13.50/hr, but they were charging $27 for every hour I worked to my employer. No benefits at all unless you work a million hours for them first.

    Cons

    The HR people that assign you to jobs will always under-pay you and their excuse is " it will be a great experience for your resume". However, this location as many others have placed their relatives in great positions. Accontemps spends lots of money in advertising trying to look good, that is why you wont find the truth about this company in other places (Thanks Glassdoor) There are no more good jobs for companies like Accountemps that under-pay their workers and use them to make easy money. I actually think is not ethical to do this, using peoples work, underpaying them and on top of it, if you happen to dislike your job they wont assign you to another position again. In Fresno area I will suggest for you to look for another agency or really keep hunting for a job on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    is it ethical what you are doing? it is like exploiting people and paying them nothing.

    Rep totally screwed me over which made me lose tbs temp job. Thanks a lot. Go back on word, pressure on the temp to choose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to let your candidates that are here for help choose jibs they wAnt to take rather than pressuring them.
