    Pros

    The staff works really hard to place people on job assignments. They are very professional in how they carry themselves. Received a thank you letter a week after joining the team.

    Cons

    You are not allowed to list any of the job assignments on your resume, you can only list yourself as an employee of TRAK Services

    Pros

    The recruiters are very nice and communicative. They're also very understanding, which is great because scheduling as a temp can be a little hectic.

    Cons

    The phone number always boots you back to the main desk, which can be annoying. Also, while they are very good about communicating, there are a lot of recruiters and it's hard to know if everyone is in the loop/on the same page. But that sort of comes with the territory, I think.

    I worked at Trak Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked with Heather Fowler on 2 different assignments in the past several years. She has always been supportive and keen on working towards my best interests. I got placed in a full-time position with one assignment and received a call back about a full-time on a previous assignment. She has done very well in finding an assignment that closely relates to my goals and interests and negotiating my terms. She represents TRAK very well and is the only reason I recommend TRAK to any friends looking for jobs. TRAK is also a great way to get exposure into companies/industries that you probably wouldn't have otherwise gotten an opportunity for.

    Cons

    For anyone looking for a full-time job, temp work doesn't always guarantee a permanent job. Sometimes you'll be called for last minute assignments and have to drop everything to make it.

    Advice to Management

    Promote Heather, she's great.

    I worked at Trak Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start a career as a Recruiter or Sales Professional. Fun, collaborative, and supportive environment. Great exposure to full-life cycle recruiting. Tons of autonomy even for those fresh out of school.

    Cons

    Limited room for career advancement, salary caps.

    Advice to Management

    Develop long-term career plans for entry and mid-level staff to retain top talent.

    I have been working at Trak Companies part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly staff that are helpful if you have any questions or need to talk to them. They are also very flexible with your schedule. Great location in DC and good pay since it's every week. Good way to keep active and they really place you in your areas of interest.

    Cons

    You had to constantly call and pressure them into finding you opportunities. It's one that you have to watch out for yourself since they have so many people that also want assignments.
    Testing on computers does not work well with Macs.

    I have been working at Trak Companies part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All of the staff at TRAK has been friendly through every step of the temp process and in answering questions I have at any time. They really try to understand what companies to place you at based on your interests.

    Cons

    I don't know. If you have to take the computer test at the office it will hurt your score, but in my experience they told me to do it at home. I've heard that they were not as nice to other applicants, but I've never experienced this.
