    Pros

    Unlike most of the recruiters in town, these guys truly care about the candidate and making the right placement. They seek out a quality fit, the right fit for the candidate and have strong relationships with many firms and in-house legal departments in the area. I have never had a bad experience with these guys! Will and the rest of the team know their stuff and will guide you in the right direction.

    Cons

    I've never had a negative experience so nothing comes to mind.

    I have been working at Law Dawgs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked with Law Dawgs for the last eight years. Everyone on their recruiting team is very helpful. They really care about their candidates and clients, always trying to place you in positions that will afford both you and their client with the best possible fit. Their goal for candidates is to place you in a position that will help you grow professionally. While their goal for clients is to place people that will succeed and flourish in their new position within the firm. Whether your a candidate or client, I highly recommend using their services.

    Cons

    Sorry, no cons at the moment.


  3. Law Dawgs is the best!

    Pros

    The personnel at Law Dawgs, especially Will, are well versed in the Seattle legal community. They give candidates reasonable expectations for salaries and working conditions and work very hard to place candidates in situations where they are comfortable and a good fit. They take into account personalities in the prospective employer's work place as well as the personality of the candidate. They also are very adept at matching the skill level of the candidate with the skill level required by the employer. Unlike many placement firms they do not try to place the candidate just anywhere to get the referral fee - a lot of skill and thought go into their placements.

    Cons

    I didn't have any negative experiences with Law Dogs.

    If you don't have a position for your contract staff , please keep in touch with them to let them know that you are still looking for them.

    I have been working at Law Dawgs as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NONE!!! There is NOTHING good about this company, period!!

    Cons

    If I could have given a NEGATIVE rating, I would!!! Unprofessional! BAD customer service to the client! HORRID employment practices! Don't dare to stand up for yourself, you will be retaliated against in ways you would NEVER think anyone who spent more than 5 minutes in a law class would partake in! The self-proclaimed "General Counsel" (which in itself is a joke) and the director will bully you and punish you until you pander to them! They do not even visit the sites they are sending candidates to! They do not even know the structure of their own company -- they can't keep who is in one position straight... one minute one person is the director, the next it is someone else, then its back to being the first person. They are a STAFFING firm that doesn't even know EMPLOYMENT law... they have to consult admin agencies to find out how to properly act as employers... that in itself tells you what a joke this place is. RUN THE OTHER WAY! There are TONS of legal staffing agencies in Seattle. Save yourself A LOT of hardship, distress, and upset.....GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

    Advice to Management

    Get an HR department and a competent attorney to oversee employment related matters. As it stands, you are practically begging for a lawsuit!

    They do as good of a job as anyone to not oversell the assignments you are interviewing for.

    Pros

    Friendly hiring manager Weekly paycheck delivered to site No timesheets

    Cons

    Uncertain nature of assignment length No benefits Pay is a little substandard compared to other document review opportunities in the area

    Advice to Management

    Please do not oversell the length of time the assignments may last, and be up-front with employees about previous assignment shut-downs if you know of them.
