I have been working at Accountemps

Pros

Great for recent grads who were not fortunate enough to receive a full time offer after school.
My experience with Accountemps was great - a stepping stone to better opportunities
Know that this is a temp place, and hard work will be recognized

Cons

Pay is awful if you don't have relevant experience, but this is the cost of getting your foot in the door.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep finding opportunities for eager employees

    I worked at Accountemps full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I did get some experience. It was better than just sitting around until I found a job myself.

    Cons

    I was only $$ to them. They did not care. They did not listen, I was often deceived. I was on assignment for 9 months and never got paid a single holiday! Lousy compensation! You have to have 1150 hours to get holiday pay!!! You have to work there for 2000+ hours which comes out to over a year to get a bonus! They make all this money off of you and you get paid next to nothing!

    Right before I finally took an assignment I stupidly told them I had an interview with "X Company" and within in a few hours my interview was mysteriously cancelled. Coincidence? I think not.

    When I told them that my hours were cut and that I needed more hours, they took FOREVER to finally find me something. I had to constantly repeat my qualifications when they had it right there in front of them! I was told that a position that I was assigned an interview for was direct hire. When I went to the interview I found out that it was temp to hire.
