    I have been working at ACT-1 part-time

    I worked at ACT-1 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had some nice co-workers and a great manager (although I had four managers in two years). I landed a great client and was very busy. Regional Manager was a great guy!

    Cons

    So so so many. There were so many "Levels of Authority" that nothing ever got done. I was there for two years without even a one-cent raise. Vacation time accrued the first year couldn't be used until the second year. HR was impossible to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people and they will perform like professionals.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They have good info on their FB page and web site. They also have groups were one can learn valuable tools for successful job search.

    Cons

    They don't communicate well with their temps. I once was hired for a temp position as a fundraser or call center person for a Mayoral Candidate and I was fired for asking what time to report to the job site without explanation.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional

    I worked at ACT-1 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Weekly pay. Paid motel, some long term assignments.

    Cons

    They do not reimburse you for gas money when you travel over t0 miles (one way). They also did not reimburse me for my airfare to AS and the wages were not even close to the $17.00 ph AS advertised in the newspaper and verbally on the phone.

    Advice to Management

    It is only a matter of time until your business will fold. Had I been more financially secure, I would have sued your company for fraudulent activity.

    Pros

    They are normal contracting house, you do your hours at your placement and they will pay you each week. Easy to work with and super responsive

    Cons

    These are contracting jobs, they don't have a long term future or much career development options. Not the company's fault just part of being a contractor

    Positive company, they believe in you! Excellent training. Unending financial opportunities for Account Executives. Excellent benefits. Opportunity to qualify for yearly all inclusive trip. Opportunities for growth & advancement! You can write your own paycheck & manage your own career goals at this company. Supportive management.

    Cons

    Must be full-fledged multi-tasker, focused, & in it for the long haul to succeed here! Must be able to run a full desk & be thick-skinned. You will receive great support & training from management/corporate, but you must be willing/able to be self-motivated.
