    I worked at Townsend & Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were no positives to working here at all, I am just writing in here to fit the minimum word requirements.

    Cons

    Horrible management, training and overall moral. Convinced me to leave my full time employer for a "great opportunity". Was let go because was not meeting standards (this was handled very poorly) but was still in a training period.... then went to file for unemployment and was told the company never even registered me as an employee, so they basically screwed me over.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new career cause you are not good at your job...

    Pros

    At least I got one job to put on my resume. Other than that, nothing.

    Cons

    Low pay; no holiday pay - no chance to ever earn any. No communication; after signing up, I got one short stint that went well and then never heard from them again, despite emailing and calling to let them know I am available. In fact, I saw several jobs on their website that looked perfect for me; I submitted my resume to each, and still never heard back. You can do better finding jobs on your own, with no middleman.

    Advice to Management

    Open a McDonald's franchise.

    Pros

    They gave me the opportunity to get my foot in the door and they have good communication.

    Cons

    To start, we get paid much less than the other contractors with different agencies. Also, they give you no chance to earn any vacation time at all. Every other agency at minimum has it where if you work a certain amount of hours, you earn a day off. Not townsend; you don't work, you dont get paid. Lastly, there's no paid holidays. Some other contractors that I work with, who are with different agencies, get paid holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your contractors like normal full time workers. It's a little ridicululous to not be able to earn even one vacation day after working a year.
