    I worked at Adecco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    they found a position relatively easy

    Cons

    young hires were very unprofessional and played a lot but they seemed to keep their jobs and training was very unhelpful provided by the temps such as myself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give new temps more professional training than temps from the same agency as it was very unprofessional and they tend to be very rude and also unprofessional in training persons new to the position

    I have been working at Adecco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Adecco is full of clock watchers, so the pros are "No Overtime work"

    Cons

    Lack of career growth and poor compensation.

    Once pay is reasonable and fair, other things become important: recognition, respect, challenging work, opportunities for development… the feeling that a job is more than just a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See cons above, management skips over "providing a fair reasonable pay" and is willing to give recognition if it doesn't cost Adecco any money.

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

    Pros

    They have found me multiple jobs. After about a year of working for them I am getting paid holidays.

    Cons

    Pay could be better. It would be nice if I was given sick days instead of having to show up to work sick just so I don't risk losing my assignment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to offer paid vacation/sick time.

    Doesn't Get The Big Picture

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Adecco

    Pros

    They will talk to you when "they" need something.

    Cons

    Recruiters don't realize that overqualified candidates have the ability to learn just about anything. Total lack of professional courtesy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow your recruiters to see potential, not just quick fixes. Some of us could have used a hand up.

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

    Pros

    The jobs are easy to get so if you have no work experience it is easy to find a job. They have many different positions available based on skills.

    Cons

    Even after working for years full time you are still considered a temp, promotions are based on headcount so after being promoted you will be demoted considering the jobs a seasonal, pay is low compared to other companies with similar conditions. Your schedule will change constantly.
