    I worked at Accountemps part-time

    Pros

    New experience and skills to add to my resume.

    Cons

    Low rate. I needed the position, or any position, so they offered me a part time role, for the time with the hopes of placing me in a full time contract when one became available. After asking repeatedly about positions that were posted on the Accountemps site, I was always told they were filled. My conclusion was that because the client I was assigned to was pleased with my work, Accountemps refused to pull me off the assignment. Needing full time hours was more important to me than keeping Accountemps happy.

    Pros

    I loved getting to know our candidates and finding them work. There are a lot of hard working employees out there!

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the local Monterey office only uses the parts of the program that lends commissions to the Managers. They treat new seasoned sales persons as secretaries & the rest of the employees follow suit. The Administrative Assistant basically runs the place for the Manager who is never there. I loved the work but this office was dysfunctional and I was very unhappy there.

    Advice to Management

    If the programs provided by the company where used by everyone the cut throat and a true "Team" atmosphere would prevail and sales would increase.

    Pros

    You learn a great deal about work ethic, being organized, and well planned. They pay well when you start earning bonuses, and you work with some good people.

    Cons

    Poor management. They could grow revenue by valuing employees instead of looking at profits over people. Placing people in jobs wasn't rewarding - it was to generate revenue and fee's above all else.

    Advice to Management

    Take a que from other markets across the U.S. that are growing by taking care of people. Turnover wouldn't be sky high if you valued people.
