Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Accountemps as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

I can't think of a Pro at all.

Cons

Horrible assignments. Poor pay. Lying about everything they possible can. Everything is always temp to perm until you get to the assignment and they tell you, there is no way this is going permanent and you tell that to your evil recruiter and they act surprised. They are all obviously actors who never made it in Hollywood. Pathetic! No professionalism what so ever.

Advice to Management

Fire everyone and start again with some actual "Human Beings". I think all the recruiters are robots or some kind of cyborg/human hybrid.

    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
