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

    Pros

    Company culture is positive. They have your back and treat employees like family!
    Professional atmosphere. They have decent hours and excellent benefits. I have seen a lot of promoting within.

    Cons

    Little guidance or training when you are new to the company. You really need to be self sufficient to make it.

    Advice to Management

    Have more training. First month should be all about learning the computer system and company, so the second month you can take off full force!

    Pros

    Teri is a joy to work with--quick turn around, courteous, warm, patient. The other people in the Beaverton office are hard-working and pleasant. A lot of good humor in that office every time you come in! The website for Adecco proper has tons of online classes and how-to pages, fast sign up process if your documents are in order, and quick placement if you have relevant skills. When placed, Adecco gives full benefits and health insurance and takes care of HR issues for you, not necessarily the company whom you perform work for.

    If you are aware that Adecco's clients are companies who need workers, not you, and you are aware you must be a good "product" with skills for Adecco to place, negative reviews here make a lot more sense. You cannot be mad at Adecco that you did not get the job you want or you did not perform well at the job you got or you're not getting bites because the company did not want you--spiff up your resume and look up Adecco's classes on interviewing. Adecco's job is to align you to companies you might not have known were interviewing.

    Cons

    Lengthy paperwork via a website, would have preferred to do that at home via email but I think I hadn't made myself clear before face-to-face. Mea culpa.
