    I worked at GCR full-time

    Pros

    Personally, I think GCR is a great company to work for. As many know, its never easy to be in the staffing industry, there will always be a customer that is unhappy with their service. However, there were more customers that were more than happy with the jobs/pay and benefits GCR has to offer than those that are not. GCR cares about their employees and their customers, they are always willing to help someone who... is genuinely looking for work and actually care enough to check up on them after they are in the position, which most staffing agencies do not offer that kind of customer service. They also care about placing folks in the right positions, which again, many staffing companies could care less and just want the $. GCR is not like other agencies, they have a great team behind them that will bend over backwards for their customers.

    Cons

    There are always cons to every agency. They are sometimes a little behind tech wise but other than that there is no cons that necessarily stand out. I feel like all the people that wrote reviews before me probably were repeat-offenders/slackers and that's why they gave GCR one star. I feel like a lot of people that leave these terrible reviews are just angry people in general.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work - keep caring about your staff and employees, it shows.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at GCR

    Pros

    There are no pros for this place.

    Cons

    They are not up to the times with pay scale and they are loyal to there clients (only). The pay you a low wage and your worth is more than you know it. They have a 20-30% mark up on you and take a cut of your pay from you. They’re not up to times with technology as of recording your hours as like other companies are. Recruiting will cut you down on what you are really worth. This is how they market you to there... clients. They have a very bad reputation for not standing by their workers. You should look the other way with this unethical placement agency. They are all cons at this place

    Advice to Management

    Stop cheating people on a hourly wage and get back with the times. Treat people fare

    I have been working at GCR for less than a year

    Pros

    The recruiters have an established relationship with ASML hiring managers.

    Cons

    No relocation. No holiday pay. Poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Offer relocation for those contract employees traveling from out of state. Reimburse employees for their out of pocket travel expenses.

    I worked at GCR full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People were nice and sales manager was knowledgeable. When they paid for advertising, the leads were good.

    Cons

    Felt like you were lying to the client about how they got your number (they mostly thought they were reaching the government and not a private business). Business solely depends on the owners paying for advertising in order to get leads, otherwise you are calling on dead leads from 6 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    pay the money to advertise

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere depending on your Team Lead. Work your 40 hours and your supervisor is flexible with your daily work schedule.

    Speak the truth, even when it is not good news
