    I worked at Accountemps as a contractor

    Pros

    quick in placement, pay weekly

    Cons

    low salary, dishonest to candidates,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they cares only about comissions, low pay rate. they have the attitude they control your life, they require to let them know is you have interview with other agency (company).. ridiculous. Don't appreciate people making money for them .
    I would never recommend Accountems of RH!

    I have been working at Accountemps as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Do it for something quick.

    Cons

    Do it for something quick, then find something permanent on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Candidates are earning your revenues. But you treat us badly. Agents use intimidating tactics such as "or else" in a threatening tone (which I take it to mean do what they say or else you get blacklisted), are often hostile and make it clear candidates aren't valued. The attitude that the client is always right is terrible. Blunt refusal to handle any issues while on contract.

    I worked at Accountemps

    Pros

    I was never more that 1 day between jobs. I always felt that they were working really hard for me. They were very professional, yet comfortable to talk with.

    Cons

    I wish benefits could have been better? But something rather than nothing was a huge help!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving all benefit areas.

    I have been working at Accountemps full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Finds the job which means not too much searching- usually eager and helpful. They also negotiate the wage. After 1 year you could have benefits with RHI.

    Cons

    Major issue - some jobs do not become full time and someone will be left doing the temp. job for a long period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a person is a good worker at a particular company for a long period of time it the agency should increase their wages and give other benefits.

    Accountemps gave me an assignment over the summer to jump start my career and give life to my resume. Highly recommend working for them.

    I only had to wait five days to be placed on an assignment but some placements can take longer depending on requested position and the current job market.
