Positive Outlook

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.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at TradeSTAR part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They will always find you work. Most of the staff is on point. Great people to talk to in person or on the phone.

    Cons

    Some of the clients will have you working a couple of days and that's it. Then TradeStar is back looking for another client for you to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Find companies that are looking for guys for bigger projects where technicians are at least working 6 mths. Or more. Not 2-3 days. Technicians need steady work.
