    I worked at City Personnel full-time

    Pros

    City Personnel really pushed me to go into a career I'm currently loving. I was a little resistant at first but Dawn definitely knew what she was doing and helped me find a great job.

    Cons

    Honestly, just the fact that it's temporary to start. I fell in love with the company they placed me at that I wanted to be permanent right away.

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

    Pros

    City Personnel had better agents and better jobs than any of the other agencies in Providence that I worked with. They were thorough in getting to know me so that they could really understand what I was looking for and what I am capable of. They were respectful of my time, both in terms of sending me only on interviews that matched my requirements and in terms of communicating with me promptly and efficiently. When I suspended my job search, they circled back with me to let me know that an opportunity I was interested in had re-opened. Their advocacy and diligence contributed to my successful search for a great job!

    Cons

    I had a very positive experience at City Personnel. The only con I can think of was not being eligible to buy into any kind of health insurance while I was on temp assignment, but that is standard across the industry.

    I worked at City Personnel (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The one interview they had for me paid well

    Cons

    The owner went from super nice to get me in and after that was very unprofessional and dishonest. She said they would call me with jobs that fit, but even though they posted more jobs online, they NEVER called me. I called multiple times about posting they put up, but they never followed up with me. The ONE interview I got was when I resubmitted my resume. City Personnel said it was a great firm with a great reputation and nice people. When I started, I had an attorney yelling at me on my second day for a mistake she made. Come to find out that firm had been through 3 or 4 other people for that position, all who left. No one there was allowed to speak about why the other people left. When I asked City Personnel to please keep looking for more positions for me, because I wasn’t sure this would work out, SHE TOLD THE MANAGER! And I ended up losing that job before being able to find another. I had given up two other jobs (that I found on my own) to take this one, based on the information given by City Personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Just be professional and honest with people. Your supposed to be providing a service.
