    Temporary Assignments

    Temporary Worker (Former Employee) Lima, OH

    ProsI worked through Adecco in order to find temporary jobs. There was always a job available to go to. There was a wide range of types of jobs-assembly line in a factory, greeter at Verizon and shelf stocker at WalMart were a few that I had experience doing.

    ConsThe assignments usually only lasted 3-4 months with no opportunity to actually be hired in by the company you were temporarily working for. It was uncomfortable having to start all over at new places so often. They were all minimum wage positions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Your Just A Number!

    Level II Technical Support (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsThey are quick to return calls ..... only when they are under pressure from their clients to fill positions.

    ConsYour are just another number to them. Poor employee relations. Recruiters do not return calls. No plan on a long lasting plan to keep you employed. Benefits are very poor. Do not keep in touch while you are on assignment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart taking better care of the employees that are making you a ton of money!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My experience with Adecco has been mostly satisfactory.

    Receptionist (Former Employee) Bowling Green, KY

    ProsThe best and only reason anyone works for a temp/staffing service is because that is almost the only way to get a job where I live and so that is why I have worked through them.

    ConsLow pay, no benefits, no holiday pay

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to keep good workers you should pay them what they are worth including holiday pay.
