    Pros

    Company draws assignments from strong employer pool, matching job seekers with appropriate workplaces. Many assignments are temp to hire and well paying.

    Some employers put out assignments before finalizing details such as equipment and password permission. I have had the experience of reporting for work and not having the badges or passwords to do the job.

    Inform candidates of workplace idiosyncrasies.
