Horrible Temp Company to work with!

I worked at Accountemps as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

I can't think of a Pro at all.

Cons

Horrible assignments. Poor pay. Lying about everything they possible can. Everything is always temp to perm until you get to the assignment and they tell you, there is no way this is going permanent and you tell that to your evil recruiter and they act surprised. They are all obviously actors who never made it in Hollywood. Pathetic! No professionalism what so ever.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire everyone and start again with some actual "Human Beings". I think all the recruiters are robots or some kind of cyborg/human hybrid.

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

    Pros

    They have connection with various employers.

    Cons

    • They don’t really care about employees, they are pretty much like used car salesmen
    • Hardly any communication with employees
    • Getting a job from them might still take a long period of time, and you end up with a job that nobody wants (such as bad employer or low pay)
    • Underpay because Accountemps gets large share of your paid
    • Working for them, many times I felt deceived. I would recommend that employee keeps all email correspondences with Accountemps as well as his/ her employers to protect yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps need new management

    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
