    They have contracts with many great companies. Kim Garstien is outstanding and a super hard-worker trying to place temp staff.

    Cons

    It is hard to be a temp for a long period of time.

  2. Quick in giving job opportunities that fit my schedule and are temporary

    Pros

    After meeting with a knowledgeable recruiter, they started to look for positions I would be a fit for. Keep in mind this process take time, at the same time I had a great opportunity working for a reputable company. Work ethic goes a long way.

    Cons

    Consistency of assignments, however that is the nature of the business.

    Pros

    The best reason to work as a temp for OfficeTeam is they will usually be able to find some work for you if you're between jobs.

    Cons

    The cons for working as a temp for OfficeTeam are:
    Low pay
    Few if any benefits
    Recruiters only care about the clients, they don't value their employees

    Pros

    While working as a contractor for them I have never gone more than 2 weeks before getting a new position.

    Cons

    Definitely has low compensation, which can be a bit of a deterrent at times.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better compensation for your contractors so that they feel like they are compensated for their full value as a worker. Moreover this would help with retaining quality employees.

    Pros

    Quick turn around in finding temporary employment for candidates. Recruiters were nice over the phone and typically all of them would place you for an assignment. Good way to make some fast cash.

    Cons

    No long term job opportunities. You will not get a permanent position because the client has to pay a fee which is typically 25% of your yearly salary. No employer needs to do this when they can place an add and high someone.

    Advice to Management

    Be more up front and honest with candidates.
