    I worked at Accounting Principals full-time

    Pros

    Great communication. Lots of exposure to potential employers. They listen to the specifics of your personality, skill set, wants and needs.

    Cons

    Starting out with one recruiter and going through 10 others, while trying to build a personable relationship with each is hard.

    Advice to Management

    I know there are a lot of "recruiters" working in one office, each of whom might get more than one opportunity for me-the employee. While this is great exposure, it made things a little confusing for me in the beginning. I thought I would be working with person A, and before I knew it I was working with person B, C and D. This is not a problem, but for someone such as myself who has never worked with a staffing agency before AP it can be confusing. Other than that, great job! I had a great experience partnering with AP and would definitely recommend to others.

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

    Pros

    Great Manager during my tenure. Now I heard she is gone.

    Cons

    Worked along side only one Staffing Manager who would just stare at her computer like she was a "deer in the headlights". Manager would try to get her motivated and submit candidates for positions that I was trying to fill for my clients, but she was slow and gave push back. Everyone thought she was out of it.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps additional screening of potential employees when you extend an offer. Had she done her job I would have stayed and done well under my Manager.

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

    Pros

    They don't just do Accounting Jobs.
    I've worked with Psychologist, Paralegals, hotel management, and many other majors.
    All should apply if you're struggling, but find a career while working if you can.

    Cons

    Temp to Hire is rare with them.
    They don't just do Accounting Jobs. I was reeled in with an opportunity to assist on 401k advising.
    Little did I know, I would be advising people on how to use this company's "enhanced" system upgrade.
    No holiday pay unless you worked with them for a year or so.
    There is a conversion fee that will prevent most from hiring you full time.
    they make a ridiculous amount from you. usually they get 2/5ths of your pay. it varies per person but that is average.

    Advice to Management

    Quit with the false claims of "they will hire you", "you've been there for so long, any moment now".
    I know the longer the Temps work, the more money you make. Hopefully something sticks before it leaves your other ear.

    Pros

    The people there are great. Great communication, they listen to you needs and work hard to get you a position that fits your needs. They try to keep you busy until a permanent position opens up

    Cons

    Some temporary positions but great while you're there

    Pros

    Management is great! Most of the work team are awesome to work with!

    Cons

    Long hours to be successful (just like any "sales type job").

    Advice to Management

    Develop other key matrix besides dials.

    Pros

    Having some of the best upper management in the business to report to makes this company great! They are knowledgeable, fair, like to promote from within and really listen to the field's opinions and recommendations.

    Cons

    There are no cons that i can think of in the overall company. All companies/families have their little issues, but overall this company is just great.
