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

Pros

- Great learning experience for recent grads
- Provided opportunities to get foot in the door of great companies
- If you perform well, companies that you are assigned to WILL offer full time jobs.

I performed 4 contracts during my time at Accountemps, in varying accounting functions within both public and private companies, in a variety of industries.

Cons

- Compensation isn't competitive enough to retain employees.
- Recruiters can be high pressure.

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

    Pros

    They have connection with various employers.

    Cons

    • They don’t really care about employees, they are pretty much like used car salesmen
    • Hardly any communication with employees
    • Getting a job from them might still take a long period of time, and you end up with a job that nobody wants (such as bad employer or low pay)
    • Underpay because Accountemps gets large share of your paid
    • Working for them, many times I felt deceived. I would recommend that employee keeps all email correspondences with Accountemps as well as his/ her employers to protect yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps need new management

    Pros

    Great for recent grads who were not fortunate enough to receive a full time offer after school.
    My experience with Accountemps was great - a stepping stone to better opportunities
    Know that this is a temp place, and hard work will be recognized

    Cons

    Pay is awful if you don't have relevant experience, but this is the cost of getting your foot in the door.

    Advice to Management

    Keep finding opportunities for eager employees
