Pros

Pay for clerical positions is close to $17 an hour. There is a variety of work in different industries. There is a discount health/dental/vision plan that starts not long after you begin your assignment. The owner of the company is a woman. I like the owner's partnership with the local workforce project and the local community job center. The quality of the other temps I have met seems pretty high.

Cons

The temporary positions can end at any time and some end with virtually no warning. Some companies may drop you for less expensive temps from other agencies. Myself and other temps with this company have trouble getting calls and emails returned in a timely manner once our assignments have ended.

Advice to Management

Make sure the recruiters return calls and emails within 24 hours. Consider reviewing the rates you are charging companies if your candidates are never being reviewed by certain companies.

    Pros

    They USED to be a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Something has changed. they used to be a great outfit but all the staff, including the COO, are gone and they are under new management, too. Very weird vibe. (I heard thru the recruiter grapevine that the owner has taken over and is not up to speed on what matters.)

    Advice to Management

    Do something more/better to keep good people. Realize that your employees, including those of us in your temporary pool matter.
