    Pros

    The Bartech Group appears to have relationships with well-established companies across the United States. This is a plus for employees/candidates who wish to relocate to other areas. The Employee Care Representatives are usually good about responding to your inquiries, favorably or not.

    Cons

    The Bartech Group seems unwilling to negotiate rate increases, so it would behoove employees to negotiate their working rate upfront. Another unfortunate thing that I discovered is that The Bartech Group's loyalty appears to be to the Client and not their direct W2 workers. Please read ALL of the fine print in your contract(s) before signing. Please also be knowledgeable regarding Department of Labor laws and other statutory employment requirements, as Bartech representatives do not appear to know them or how they apply.

    Advice to Management

    Please do a better job of protecting your employees from discriminate employment practices of large corporations. Be more protective of your employees, both in terms of financial management and legal protection.

    Very efficient and nice pay rates.

    Once your assignment ends, I don't feel that they try hard enough to find you other opportunities.

    Pros

    Recruiters work very hard to place you and make you feel important. I have truly enjoyed both my assignments with Bartech. However, I have done well at both OEM's because I worked hard.

    Cons

    Bartech's leadership is lacking. I have worked on this current assignment for three years. I have had more contacts at Bartech that left than have stayed. Be prepared to FIGHT for raises and follow through throughout.

  9. It was only a job that paid the bills...they went through senior managers every 6-8 months

    Pros

    Poorly managed, very little opportunity for growth and no work life balance

    Cons

    No perks, compensation was less than cost of living increases, unrealistic goals, poorly managed, and seem to only consider those located in their Detroit headquarters.

  10. It could be a lot better.

    Pros

    Large fortune 500 client base.

    Cons

    Difficult working environment especially for workers not sitting in a site with direct management. With no on site management it seems to create a feeling of disconnect and distrust with the team. There is also very little training for new employees with no set guidelines on servicing the accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some type of career road map for employees. It feels like there is no chance to learn new skills or be promoted into a new role. There needs to be a standardized training program implemented. A lot of the training was either incomplete or provided the incorrect information.

  11. Poor response. Company personnel never call back

    Pros

    The person at Bartech called me once for a position but never followed up.

    Cons

    None of the personnel call you back. I even called the head office to inquire about the job and was transferred to another recruiter who was responsible for supplying personnel at Verizon. Neither the new recruiter nor the previous one ever called back, despite leaving 4 phone messages. Most recruiting companies are only allowed to submit 2 candidates for a position. When they fill these spots, the recruiter will not call you back, especially this one. Bartech fears you will compete, therefore ignores you. Were Bartech to tell you outright, you might go with another agency. This agency lies when it says the hiring company has set a range on how much it will pay. Actually, the hiring company sets an upper limit for the position. Recruiting agencies factor this into what they are willing to pay. Be upfront and truthful.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay more attention to "customers" otherwise people will find other recruiting agencies to fill the same position.
