Low interaction and mainly a middlemanJan 28, 2018 - Research Coordinator in San Bruno, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
2.5 stars. This doesn't reflect the company I contracted for, and I'm not reviewing the typical 'tech contract culture' that many people try to review. I only found out Adecco was my official employer after getting the job offer directly via the company I worked at. Interacting with Adecco was about 5% of my total 2 year experience. When payroll issues arose (i.e. needed to take sick pay or request a wage increase) I was assisted by a friendly and singular person so there was some accountability. Their payroll website, while buggy, was actually helpful, as long as you are able to log in (several times couldn't due to Chrome incompatibility).
Usually got a run-around when trying to deal with problems and never aware who did what for me. I didn't get paid for my last week until I brought it to attention (bureaucracy-itis?). d During my first year I had to follow up because my approved wage increase wasn't showing on my paycheck. The errors usually stemmed from poor communication with the company I was placed at, which should not be so flakey when this is in literally their main function, to pay people.Continue reading

At the the tipping point of going off the edgeAug 9, 2018 - Recruiter in Columbus, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I gained good experience and was able to move on to a position paying the market value. Salaried position from the get go, so unlike other competitors you don't have to prove yourself.
Stressful and Inept Management from the Top Down. Low pay - two other nationwide staffing competitors offer a salary (once you hit your goals) that is 8-10k more than Adecco's and a bonus structure that is MUCH more competitive. Horrible systems that do not talk to each other. Your job title is recruiter, but you are responsible for so much more from payroll to selling new business to workers compensation and so on. This makes it hard to do any one thing right. Turnover is astonishing at all levels of the organization. Pay is the lowest for comparable positions. Training is sink or swim. The direction from top corporate executives is hazy besides, "we all need to work a little harder", but unfortunately everyone is maxed out.Continue reading

Don't be fooled by the big nameJul 9, 2021 - Branch Recruiter in Houston, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
They will pay you a good salary to start and make you feel supported for the first 2-3 months.
The resources and training are very hard to navigate or receive. They are VERY numbers driving but will tell you they are about their people. Training is complete trash and up to you to figure out on your own. They have a very high turnover rate and only a few top performers will stay past 1-2 years. Work-life balance is horrendous.Continue reading

Great , but there are a few consDec 28, 2016 - Anonymous Employee in London, EnglandRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The company itself pays attention to its staff in regards to training and development which is extremely important in any position. They have quite a few incentives and uncapped commission. There's top talent trips for top performers within the company and monthly conferences so you can review your progress over the months.
Micro management, very cut throat (Which is expected as it is a sales based position). The company could spend some money on a refurbishment. Sometimes you can feel like the management team are never satisfied.Continue reading

Good Pay and hoursJun 21, 2020 - Fulfillment Associate in Luton, East of England, EnglandRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good Pay and work hours that help you to make decent pay for the week. The management is experienced and there is good coaching if needed. It keeps you fit as it is physical job.
Due to the low work flow I had to go, only few months of work

Decent Temp Job AgencyJul 27, 2016 - Customer Service- Call Center Representative in Melbourne, FLRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Working for Adecco is great because you can learn SO many new professional techniques that can really have a positive impact on your work life. The pay rate through Adecco is pretty decent and it goes up once you advanced through positions. All in all this is a very laid back agency and is willing to care and help you at all times.
Generally, speaking they can be a little unorganized and slow at times. Sometimes the staff members have bitter attitudes as but you have to stride pass their misery. Most times the hours giving can be a little outrageous! most of all i hate the 15% that is taken out on every check! watch out for that folks!Continue reading

These guys are great!Aug 9, 2018 - Anonymous Employee in Portland, ORRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Adecco gets you to work quickly. They also matched my skills with the highest paying position they had available and it was close to home. They are always available if you have questions and being so large they have lots of jobs and good online tools to help with paycheck info etc.
It is a temp position and everyone would rather be a regular employee I think. They do offer health insurance after you have been here a little bit.Continue reading

It is a paycheckAug 30, 2013 - Software Engineer in Albany, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I am a part time contractor (Engineering/Software) for GE (Which for this position is very satisfactory). They merely function as a pay-rolling agent and money is always direct deposited. They really have little to nothing to do with my actual work or performance. As long as the client pays them and is happy with you I guess they are happy! I was first contacted by the client. These arrangements exist for business reasons and various regulations. Pay is not spectacular but decent and mostly a function of the company you contract for. You could negotiate when you get the position for various parameters, flexibility etc. Probably more depends on the client. Adecco required a few hours of filling out awkward PDFS and a drug test before getting hired. You can search online for their benefits PDF. They offer very spartan tuition reimbursement for full timers and everyone gets free access to 'SKILLS USA,' a training website with pretty decent courses at all levels. I found that site valuable, and learned some great sales and business skills.
I am not eligible for any benefits (I believe you have to work at least 30 hours /wk). I found them a bit hard to talk to when I was first hired and discussed benefits, but they verbally gave me prices and details. No time off or sick leave for part timers.The health benefits look like high deductible plans (I heard even GE is moving to those). There are no raises or performance reviews from Adecco, these arrangements leave the employee scratching their head so they probably stay at the hired rate for a long time.
