    I worked at Contemporaries, Inc. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Long lengthed temporary assignments, which is great at first.
    Easy interview process, and sort of a high turn around rate.

    Cons

    They do not do direct hire, which is absurd because one company wanted to hire me after my temporary assignment. And their temp-perm rules make no sense, ask them to explain it to you if you land an interview. They do not listen to your needs and sort of tell you what you want to hear even if its not true. They care more about their client connections/needs than yours. I have worked for several staffing agencies, they DO NOT pay above average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth. Incorporate direct-higher for your positions.

    I worked at Contemporaries, Inc.

    Pros

    Great place to work at, with involved and concerned management. Management was also very friendly. Hours were reasonable and the pay was good.

    Cons

    Work can be slightly inconsistent. Pay was good for a temporary agency or a job just out of school, but not necessarily to make a career on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really liked the management - they were very involved but never micromanaged too much. They were very friendly and easy to connect with - keep that!
