    I worked at Adecco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The office I worked in had a great time that cared about the people who worked for us. Everyone I worked with was very passionate about their role.

    Cons

    There were many times that clients would need last minute hires. Finding people for this type of positions was a disaster as well as very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more organized system of finding employees that involved better communication across all roles in the company. Create more incentives across the board.

    I worked at Adecco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They were able to place me right away.

    Cons

    They don't really care if the employee has an issue, they are really working for the company they place you at.

    Advice to Management

    The people doing the jobs are you actual employees, you should try to work with them on any issues, not just blow off any concerns they may have.

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

    Pros

    - Overtime is usually available when you want it
    - Most of the people I worked with were cool
    - When they made you work overtime during holidays they would buy pizza (but it was cold and tasted disgusting)

    Cons

    - Salary (the pay is not commensurate with what is expected)
    - Training is inconsistent with what really takes place on the floor
    - Mandatory scheduled overtime (they choose it for you)
    - They would cancel breaks when calls were high (even if people had been working 6+ hours without a break).
    - Serious lack of communication
    - Inconsistent policies and procedures

    Supervisors are present to oversee the floor, guide/instruct phone agents in unfamiliar situations, etc. but a lot of the time they would tell you to do things you have already done, pawn off the calls to someone else or make you take the call even if the customer has already stated, requested or screamed for a supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your agents more, keep things consistent (if you train your employees a certain way then keep those procedures the same once they are on the floor), help out and do your job instead of reading emails or conversing with one another while ignoring people who need help.

    I have been working at Adecco part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best thing I can best describe to work at this kind of facility is that it is very easy and not so much of a hard job like most temp jobs.

    Cons

    The people who stir up to much drama and snitching on people , which they don't pay enough for that kind of easy work in the faculty


  6. "Decent place to start to get experience as a contractor with another company"

    I have been working at Adecco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A professional staffing company, fairly fast to respond, paid on time weekly

    Cons

    no real relationship with the company, they basically just act as the middle man and your "HR." They don't seem to have a vested interest in you and your career, even though they are making money off of you. Overall not super helpful really in finding worthwhile jobs, mainly just basic temp positions it seems

    Pros

    You are in charge of your own destiny! Potential to make good money. Get to meet a lot of people.

    Cons

    Non-compete is a little brutal. If your BDM is bad and can't pull job orders, then it can be very difficult as the recruiter to get any placements. Strict hours and dress code.
