    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.

    "Where is the Zero Star?"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Family owned business with zero accountability with the actions of upper management because they are "family". No real HR in place things get swept under the rug 100% of the time. No room to advance unless you are part of their family. They churn and burn staff believe all the negative reviews. Managers set you up for failure and start gossip and rumors for their own amusement.
