    I worked at Adecco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are best reason if your Hispanic then your good, any other race they lie an do unnecessary things to hardworking individuals that makes it hard to get a true review.

    The challenges are the lies and the dishonesty they give African Americans.

    I worked at Adecco as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid weekly, (as long as their systems were working properly), little stress

    Cons

    My experience was one of poor-communication, frequently paid late because of 'technical problems', bad culture and just an overall bad experience.

    Advice to Management

    Up your standards. The recruiters had terrible communication once staff were on the team. Very poor communication and low standards of work.

    Pros

    quick at processing remuneration and pay. "testing" reinforces to the applicant that they are competent and are able to easily do the job.

    Cons

    pays half what the going rate in the area is, an unbelievable amount of "testing" required

    Advice to Management

    stop paying minimum wage for contracts especially with government contracts, pay the going rate in the area for the job
