    I have been working at Mack & Associates as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Woman-owned business, easy communication with multiple recruiters, non-judgmental responses to personal requests about company culture, pay, hours, dress code, etc.

    Cons

    Pay is often on the lower end, and jobs seem to be either long-term temp or daily. It can also be a minute before you hear back from a recruiter. Slow and steady definitely wins the race at Mack.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, and hire more awesome women.

    I have been working at Mack & Associates as a contractor

    Pros

    Mack & Associates has been very professional, polite, and responsive to work with. They have been great at providing interesting jobs, and I've worked in several interesting, temporary positions. They seem to have a variety of clients in different industries, so if you have a specific industry that you want to work in ~or discover a specific industry~ they can probably help you!

    Cons

    No cons as of yet.

    I have been working at Mack & Associates as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They really made me feel like they were working hard to find me work. They are just wonderful to work with and always found me great jobs. I've discontinued working with other agencies because Mack understood my needs more.

    Cons

    This isn't entirely their fault, but one of their clients. They called me last minute to fill in a position, however the call that I got was at 6am. The company was concerned when I didn't respond right away, as they like to give their fill in's enough time to get ready. Understandable, but 7 am for me would have been a more appropriate time to call, and that's something a client should know.

    I worked at Mack & Associates as a contractor

    Pros

    I had a very positive experience working with Mack. They worked tirelessly to help me find the right job. They did not push me into taking something permanently that I was not excited about. I really thought they had my best interest in mind.

    Cons

    I had a pretty bad temp experience and was not forced (but strongly encouraged) to stay with the company through the duration of the contract. This would have been a big problem if the contract was for more than a month.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job! Keep it up!

    Pros

    Mack & Associates makes it possible for you to get valuable, relevant work experience while you are in between jobs or unable to commit to a full-time position. Competitive wages. Great experience! Awesome, supportive staff.

    Cons

    Strong temp performance cannot be directly rewarded due to the nature of the work. It's definitely not a way to build a career or secure advancement opportunities- but it's the perfect solution for paying the bills while you're looking for something else.

    Advice to Management

    Extend your temp recruitment to college students more, as they often have greater technical skills and flexibility than older candidates.

    You are never not on the email list!
