I have been working at TradeSTAR full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-They keep you working.(Job Security)
-Emphasis on Professionalism
-Provide initial training and reference for further training.
-Great for entry level Techs, or the completely inexperienced.
-Introduce you to different companies and people in the industry, (connections and references)
-Decent Pay, Decent Benefits
-Get you started on what can be a rewarding career path.

Cons

-Temp/Staffing Company (move you forward then hold you back)
-Variable Compensation (some experience seems discounted)
- Narrow Job Field (Commercial Construction only)
-As a temp you may feel disconnected from other workers
-Overcharge for crappy tools (optional)

Advice to Management

$10/hr is ok, but when I was told $11/hr its discouraging to make a little less. Also, expand your horizons slightly, the Audio/Video sector of this job field may not be as profitable or in demand as Voice/Data right now but it is growing and encompasses skills and technical details that only experience can provide, compensate accordingly.
