    I worked at Accountemps part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Always offering work. I was offered a job within a day of being with the company. Even when I quit to move out of state, I was contacted twice the next day with other schedulers who had not known yet that I had left.
    - It's a great resume booster because you are using and learning many skills.
    - Very flexible with scheduling. If you have to turn down a job here and there, there are plenty of people to take the job after you.
    - Great for college students with a flexible schedule. If you only have class in the evenings or a few days a week this works out really well.
    - You do not need a ton of accounting experience. I only had a little from college but they match you with people that can use you. Most of what I did was clerical but IN a finance office.

    Cons

    - Not really a con but just remember to respond quickly to an offer! If you don't respond soon enough, it will go to someone else.

    I worked at Accountemps full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Professional interaction with clients and candidates.
    Good skills testing technology.
    Great CRM system for contacting and maintaining client contact.

    Cons

    Highly competitive among co-workers, even when the company emphasizes "Teamwork".
    Micromanaged, even when production was high, and I brought in job orders.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the hard workers, and give them the respect and freedom they deserve to generate even more business!

    I have been working at Accountemps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get placed in a position.

    Cons

    Lousy placements, poor job information, but here is my real beef... Forget about any kind of holiday pay. With their new holiday pay process, you will never, ever reach the required time plus the revolving 52 weeks. So, after working for 2240 consecutive hours over a revolving 52 weeks, they not only told me I wasn't eligible, but to make matters more irritating, I was told that because they drop off a week, you will always be at 51. In other words, you will never, ever be eligible for any holiday pay. Be warned.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your holiday pay policy. It is not competitive. It is just a big, giant middle finger to all of us who bust our butts to make them money.

    To hire professional team.

    Pros

    Job assignment locations (clients) vary so that there is always something different to do.

    Cons

    Accountemps does not always have a job assignment ready when the current job I am working at ends. No paid holidays or vacation time for several months.
