    I worked at TemPositions part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to work in the field I had my degree in, just in a different capacity
    I was able to make my own schedule
    I had an experience through temp work that I never would have had otherwise

    Cons

    Not really a "counselor" position
    You are given the clients that no one else wants to deal with due to behavioral problems-- becomes a little intimidating

    I have been working at TemPositions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. You can set your own hours and change your availability though your online account at any point during the day.

    Cons

    There is a low tolerance for lateness. Three lateness are grounds for termination. When you're going to a new location daily it can be hard to adhere to that policy.

    Advice to Management

    They should make it abundantly clear to new employees that they are a means to an end. They are only a platform to find permanent work else where.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Good daily pay
    -Plenty of jobs
    -If you are working extra hours for planning let TemPositions know so you can get paid fairly

    Cons

    -While it claims to offer benefits you would have to work everyday to qualify
    -If a company you are temping with wants to hire you away they have to pay a very hefty fee to TemPositions which might persuade them to go with another candidate
    -5:30AM/ 6:00AM calls
    -Many of the schools have huge discipline issues and not just because you are a substitute
