    I have been working at ABBTECH Professional Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay rates
    Benefits including Medical, dental and 401K for contractors.
    Weekly Pay including my expenses
    Strong relationship with the major Government Contractors and in the Commercial Sector

    Cons

    After reading all the other reviews on this website, I'd like to use this "Cons" space to point out that most folks that write a review about something whether it's a product or a Company are writing a review because of a bad experience. Take this into consideration when reading all these reviews about ABBTECH. There are hundreds of folks out here that have had great experiences like I have, but I'm not naive to understand there are folks who have also had negative ones. My experience at ABBTECH has all been a positive one and I'd recommend them to anyone I know.

    No company is perfect, but then again, no Contractor is either.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at ABBTECH Professional Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office location. long history and steady supply of new employees

    Cons

    Lack of training. This is a family run firm that manages by gossip. If you are out, you will be fired with zero notice. The 'CEO" is never on site and is not part of the active running of the firm. The recruiters will only work to fill easy openings

    Advice to Management

    Run the firm in an honest manner. Quit with the gossip.

    I worked at ABBTECH Professional Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Access to job boards. Clean office. Friendly coworkers. Great help when asking for office supplies or help with computer problems.

    Cons

    Dark office. Must earn a window office. Must Punch in and out plus tell receptionist when coming and going. Medical benefits are Kaiser Permanent only and you pay. Low base salary. No vacation pay for a year. Looking for security clearance and certified candidates but can't pay them due to required company markup. Process to hire is slow. Too many steps. Disorganized and openings weak. Plenty of Competition that can offer better benefits, salary and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Change process. More open communication between recruiters and account executives. Rotate 200 openings among 10 recruiters and discuss results as a team. Offer better medical benefits for consultants. Offer attractive reasons of why to work for Abbtech other than they are family owned. Care more about communication and training than filling jobs will go a long way.
