    I have been working at Accountemps full-time

    Pros

    Sometimes find you work however it will have little to do with your skills and the steady stream of people before you leaves nothing but a mess. Don’t complain they don’t care.

    Cons

    The job is masked as accounting or accounting clerk and is not at all. If you tell them you aren’t happy they do nothing absolutely nothing. They don’t care.

    Advice to Management

    Try to match people and be truthful about the bottom of the barrel job you are sending them to.

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

    Pros

    Very professional service. Great way for new accountants to build their resume and start networking. As an SPS Consultant, you are paid even during the downtime in between contracts, which motivates Accountemps to find you new opportunities more quickly. Also you receive the appropriate benefits that come with a full-time position.

    Cons

    Generally, they expect an employee to work as an SPS Consultant for about 2 years before you start looking to get hired full-time at the companies you contract with. A firm wanted to hire me while I was 5 months in, which resulted in a lot of pushback from Robert Half. Eventually, the firm was able to come to an agreement with Robert Half to steal me away. Expect some tension if you find yourself in a similar situation.
