Understaffed. Underpaid. Poor Management.Apr 21, 2021 - Team Leader in Cambridge, OHRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The only pro I can think of is the fact when we are fully staffed they actually do work well with scheduling.
-Understaffed. -Underpaid. -Poor management. -Work under an hour cap and get laid off once hours are fulfilled. -Supposed to be just a part-time job, yet they want you to work full-time hours with no benefits. -They don’t even help you to get hired on full-time for the company they are a temp service for. -Company pays Adecco a high amount for each temp yet they only want to give you minimum wage. -Claim to be an essential workplace, yet they do not pay hazard pay for their temps, the main company was actually nice enough to pay us an extra two dollars during the pandemic, once again NOT ADECCO. -Management is only worried about themselves and they don’t care about anybody else -Adecco is making a profit off of the temps.Continue reading

Easy to work with, helped me land a great job
Overall a good company. They pay by contract so if you are contracted to a well paying company you will make good money.

IT AdminDec 2, 2015 - IT Administrative in Saint Paul, MNRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Beneficial to get the experiences in applications/systems, work within the company you are "contracted" to gain corporate environment experiences, project migration and database system experiences, and quick hire process to fill in positions.
Have worked x amount of years and still haven't been officially hired onto the company that am 'contracted'... Little to no room to move up on positions. Benefits and pay needs to be worked on and they do not match the amount of work put in.Continue reading

Technical RecruiterFeb 29, 2016 - Technical RecruiterRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Pretty good office environment. At the beginning at least it feels like you're being brought onto the team. They provide a decent set of technology and tools to work with. Had one great coworker who had been there for years and was just a wonderful person to work with. I learned a heck of a lot just from being thrown to the wolves.
90% of the jobs I recruited for were completely unqualified. Spent weeks working to fill a mid-senior position only to have it finally downgraded to literally a temp office admin position, which was a total waste of time (this really hurts you when you're a recruiter, obviously). This sort of thing was the norm, not the exception. Corporate orders would come in for positions paying literally half of the going market rate. You can get people a little below market, but at half the market rate in this economy, it's just an impossible task. All training beyond first week basic 'this is how our computer system works' was through computer modules. No in-depth personal training was provided at all, no mentoring, no professional development (I had asked about all of this before leaving my previous job for this one and was sold a bill of goods). We didn't have an account exec in our office so there were few opportunities to make placements. Made a couple big permanent placements that brought in substantial fees and then let go before commission had to be paid out on them (thanks guys!). They're being merged with/into Modis, and I would stay away until that whole thing shakes out because Modis obviously has the upper hand. They also claim they take a 'consultative approach' and to be fair, it seemed that way at the beginning, but it the end it felt like a boiler room. The day before I was let go we were told explicitly to lie to candidates in order to pump them for information and nudge them into positions. I just don't believe that you have to do that to be successful as a recruiter or to be profitable as a branch, and it's a shame they're heading in that direction. I really liked the job itself and actually thought it was going fairly well when I got the ax, but overall I somewhat regret leaving my decent and stable job for what turned out to be a completely marginal opportunity.Continue reading

- The management and recruiters are stellar - Have many great assignments/posts in many great industries - Very engaged and care for their people - I personally enjoyed my time with Addecco
- Opportunities for professional growth are limited but with focused effort on your part it is not impossible - The pay is typically below industry average (Do not be timid in negotiating for what you're worth)Continue reading

Healthy environmentJul 1, 2021 - Intern in Hà NộiRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Flat organizational structure, very small work hierarchy -> employees can take ownership in their work
Quite low pay but if you manage to get commission on each deal you make then it would be great
