    Pros

    I enjoyed working for B&B as a Branch Manager. It's a growing company and each office has a lot of latitude to get the job done. The company was recently acquired by a national staffing brand, so there will likely be some structural changes forthcoming, but the people are good to work with.

    Cons

    If "lean and mean" isn't an intentional strategy it can feel a little scatter-shot. Some work to tighten up organizational structures would be helpful, but in no way should this deter anyone from working there.

    Pros

    Sorry, but none come to mind.

    Cons

    In several years of being a registered client, never once did they call me with a job lead, nor was there ever a lead when I called to inquire. However, I responded to a recent indeed.com ad for a recruiter, and received an interview, in which I was rudely criticized on the spot about "not showing a good energy level". The interviewer and I had been engaged in lively and articulate conversation, and yet, he came out with that statement. I responded assertively and immediately, knowing at that point that I had lost any opportunity from the moment I walked in, professionally dressed, well-spoken, and with gray-white neatly groomed hair. I had noticed years ago, that everyone ever working in that office or elsewhere is under the age of 32. So think twice before you waste your time-this is an employment agency that blatantly utilizes ageism in their office staffing. You're far better off making your own luck.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your whole entire company and acquire some integrity.

    Pros

    There are no pros.. Waste of 3 years..

    Cons

    Poor staffing agency.. The only positive reviews on here are from internal managers who have to post on here to make the reviews look better.. Treated internal employees poorly. Under paid.. On call every day of the week.. Recruiters do the job of their managers and never get credit..dramatic work environment. Do yourself a favor and go to a reputable staffing company.. You will regret it years later if you don't..

    Advice to Management

    Close the business and find a new hobby
