    Pros

    Very professional and helpful recruiters. Weekly pay with direct deposit.

    Cons

    Sometimes you were convinced to be placed in a position that was clearly not exactly right for you. When inquiring about a posted job that I was interested in, that job was always no longer available but had not been removed yet from website.

    Advice to Management

    Update job postings on website more often.

    Pros

    Great position if you like a change of pace; pay is decent; get to work independently and gain experience in a variety of industries. Paid hourly and rarely have overtime so it’s a wonderful job if work/life balance is important to you.

    Cons

    Assignments are not always good ones. Upside is that none of them are permanent. It’s also very hard to leave the good assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the program

    I have been working at Accountemps full-time

    Pros

    The person I am working with is very nice

    Cons

    There is no follow through. They ask me if I want to do this job or that job and I say yes and then I never hear from them again either way.

    Advice to Management

    Get and use a "tickle" list. Your clients are your bread and butter. Keep them informed. You have a reputation for lack of delivery of employment.
