    I have been working at Accounting Principals as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The temp service is very professional and treated me like I was a valuable asset to their company. They have been available to me whenever I needed anything but not intrusive to me in any way. They made the whole process very easy and stress free.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any cons other than the mandatory 600 hours of work required before the company can hire me directly. It seems like a longer than normal time frame for me to have to stay a temporary employee for the company, even though I know that I will be able to stay on permanent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that they are doing a great job just may need to take into consideration the 600 hour limit. This time frame limits a temps opportunities as a direct hire and prolongs their hire on date and with it their benefits including earning paid time off.

    Pros

    You get paid weekly. Someone is always there if you need to talk to them about something. They are very friendly most of the time unless they get someone new in and they don't know what they are doing. I've had some very rude employees as well.

    Cons

    I don't really have any challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all employees are nice and friendly.

    Pros

    Great income potential if you work hard and work smart.

    Cons

    Office can tend to loose itself in drama and unprofessionalism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall clean it up - and let your tenured employees make you money instead of hindering them with your entry level metrics.

    No phone calls in the areas that I would like. Also they have the jobs I am qualified for, but no calls. Recruiters do not call you back when you phone them.

    Pros

    N/A - I cannot think of anything positive - The people I interacted with are so fake and sales orientated that it made me sick to my stomach.

    Cons

    The Recruiters all the way to the top are nothing but LIARS! They have zero interest in placing you in a position that is in line with your skills and background. They will say anything to convince you to take the job at hand. While placed in a position far from anything that was described, except that it was expected to be temp-to-hire. when I called to tell AP I was being treated miserably by the company's staff, they only asked that I give it more time. Clearly no regard for me they only focus on making their commission. It had already been a month and it was the worst working experience ever. Ultimately, I had to leave without providing two weeks notice to the company (yes it was that bad and uncomfortable). After which I received no further communication from AP. I guess this is a blessing, since temporary workers seemed to be treated like garbage and given no respect anyway by this agency.
    Regarding the company I was assigned at, I can only determine the reason they don't hire directly, is that they are such a miserable and oppressive company/group, they would spend too much money to on-board employees who would run screaming shortly after anyway. The management is nice on the surface, but their heads are so buried in the sand, they do not even care that the "trainer" they have in charge is EVIL, RACIST, UNPROFESSIONAL AND her GHETTO attitude is unacceptable and of course will scare away many future good people!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to the candidates and don't assume everyone is so desperate that they will settle for anything.
    Realize you are actually affecting the lives of the candidates (people) and treat them with the respect you would want for yourself.

    Sucker Punched after one bad assignment

    I have been working at Accounting Principals full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good call back time. decent pay.

    Cons

    will place you in a job they know you are over qualified for in order to meet their quota, receive their commission. I was placed at a sub-par, vermin ridden company that paid about what I would be making if I were a teenager working part time after school. They didn't listen to my complaints of bug bites or poor management at the site and fired me indefinitely, rather unprofessionally, once I resigned from the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't place higher qualified candidates at low paying, shabby job sites. Do ensure that your professionals don't lie or mislead their candidates and make sure they listen to candidate complaints about disgusting work conditions.
