    I worked at ALTRES full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Fun office environment. Fun line of work to be in. Great job to have in Hilo.

    Cons

    Hired as a temp, treated like one. They took too long to try to hire on permanent. Didn't offer paid holidays or sick leave.

    Advice to Management

    Don't spend so long waiting to permanently hire on your temp workers, you'll lose them

    Awful workers. no communication. Fires ppl when they know they are wrong. Liars!!! Liars!!!

    Advice to Management

    Man up and talk to your customers /clients. Don't hide and say it was the client/customers fault. Then show up at site and fire them cause you think you have the authority

    I worked at ALTRES full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a temp and only needing work for 6 months Altres was very organized and I could ensure I would have consistent work.

    Cons

    There really weren't any cons dealing with Altres. They were straight forward, organized, honest, and reliable.

    Advice to Management

    Find more companies to be temps for! I really wanted to work for some NGO's and sustainable businesses.

    I worked at ALTRES full-time

    Pros

    Mostly great people to work with. They are huge on team building and have multiple activities as well as celebrating birthdays, Haloween, Christmas etc.

    Cons

    My position was crazy busy. They have head sets to answer the phone hands free so that we can multi task and walk around, making copies while we talk. Understaffed and the pay is not great.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff where work load is a lot. And please be mindful when you walk around talking story and eating snacks when others are glued to their desk and barely have time to even go to the bathroom.

    Pros

    It didn't take me long to register, receive a call back and start working.

    Cons

    They don't place everyone that registers. But that's not on them, it's clearly the companies whom they represent. I think more people should understand the relationship of a staffing firm.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have backward reviews from the bottom up.

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

    Pros

    Not only was the focus on customer service and making both applicants and clients comfortable, they take care of their employees with many fun activities and functions throughout the year, as well as the amazing benefits they provide. This included St. Patricks Day breakfast, Thanksgiving lunch, Halloween bash, scholarships for employee's children, an amazing health and fitness program, and so many more! We did many events throughout the year to raise money for various charities and raised thousands of dollars. I miss it terribly.

    Cons

    I worked on the staffing side in the clerical department. At times it could get pretty intense and competitive between the managers when trying to place applicants, but I feel that is very normal in this industry. I just happen to be EXTREMELY non confrontational so it would raise my anxiety at times. Overall I had no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. I admire each of you and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to work for such an amazing family.

    Pros

    If you need work, or would like exposure to a field that you can't get into otherwise, they might be able to help

    Cons

    low pay is pretty much the only con

    Advice to Management

    be nice to the people in placement, and they will be nice to you
