A good temp agency to work for

Temporary Associate (Former Employee)
Bellevue, WA

I worked at Accountemps

ProsFlexibility with the type of work or position they can offer you. Chance to experience the life at different companies. Also offer online training courses in business & computer applications like the Microsoft Office Suite.

ConsNo benefits as in a full-time position. Need to purchase a benefits plan similiar to Cobra, which is expensive at over $300 a month. Also a limit on the amount of income you can make from a temp job. Accountemps does pay more than the average temp agency though, & they are good about letting you know about new opportunities that come up when you are not in an assignment.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo be more honest with employees on what type of work is actually available when they go in for their initial interviews to get jobs through Accountemps. No sense raising their hopes that they will get a position soon, but not calling them for weeks afterwards. Also, providing more training such as the online or computer courses is a great & low-cost idea to upgrade the employee's skills, which would make their employee roster look more attractive to companies.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
