    Ok to work for, poor recruiter support. I had two assignments in 3 yrs even though I called weekly.

    Pros

    Very friendly and professional-looking. They portray a caring attitude.

    Cons

    Lazy staffing agents, only worried about numbers. It took 2 yrs being on the available list (being reassured I'd be called for a suitable assignment) and 2 - 3 staffers to finally call to see what was going on. By that time I had moved to another state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to check your availability list. Don't just play favorites. You should review your availability lists at least every 3 months to check the status of those on it; if they aren't working for you, find out why. There is nothing more insulting than to get a job or assignment on your own or through another agency only to find out that half the temps came through your agency when you've been on the available list for months and wasn't called for the position.

    I have been working at Ajilon Staffing as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was placed quickly with hours and I liked. Pay was ok

    Cons

    I was told I'd make $15 an hour, before I accepted the assignment. It changed to $14.50 an hour but when I got my paycheck it was $14.00 an hour. It took 3 paychecks before the $14.50 was paid. I'm still waiting for the back pay. Plus I signed up for direct deposit and it's been 5 weeks or 4th pay check and I still do not have direct deposit. The not mentioning when I started they said I should have my time card information by Friday. Well on Monday it still was not there. This is the worst it's been for me. I have been temping for 3 years, never has this happened to me. I will not recommend Ajilon to my friends look for employment nor any friends who are looking to hire a staffing company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you should hire the number of people needed in HR or Payroll who set up just the new recruits so that they get set up to be paid quickly and correctly. Even if you have to mail payroll checks they should still come on Fridays not Saturday because technically that is not getting paid on Fridays. Most banks close at noon or if you're blessed 2pm. and that seems to be the day of the week the USPS delivers late.

    Pros

    Friendly office staff. Good pay and good outline of work environment.

    Cons

    It was a temporary job that didn't convert to full-time. One Senior staff member did not go to bat when things got a little out of hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continual contact for feedback in temp roles.

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

    Pros

    Great work, life balance. I feel like our team is an extension of my family. Great office culture. There are great opportunities to make a lot of money with this company. Although it is a competitive environment it does not feel cut throat. While KPI's are important at the end of they day production is what is important.

    Cons

    With any defined culture there are always "family feuds". However they are generally resolved with little negative outcome.
    Again the culture is VERY defined and while my colleagues and I thrive in this culture it isn't a culture that everyone can thrive in.

    Pros

    Placement specialists listen to your preferences and keep you up to date on available positions, many temp to hire.

    Cons

    Contract work is remote so you deal with your agent on phone and email- but it isn't really a con because it is more efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't think of anything to advise upon at this time.

    I worked at Ajilon Staffing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They were really supportive and made sure we were fitting and growing at our position. I never felt "cut loose".

    Cons

    I think contracting generally sucks, knowing that Ajilon was taking about half of what the company I contracted to was paying out. The company paid $50/hr for my services, of which I received $25. I know they paid benefits and all, but I'd much rather have the money that my work is worth and find my own benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it would be more fair to give contractors a much larger percentage in return for forgoing any benefits.
