All Talk No Action
Applicant (Former Employee), Downtown Los Angeles, CADecember 30, 2013
Pros: friendly talkers
Cons: talk gets old
So many times over the years, they post positions that suit me. Every time, I need to remind them at the downtown Los Angeles office of my interest and qualifications, even though I already check in with the same people that posted those jobs, regularly. Highly doubt their integrity.

Pretty much the most worthless temp agency ever.
Office administration (Former Employee), FresnoAugust 10, 2013
Pros: friendly staff
Cons: fake job postings, inaccurate salary/hours.
Well what can I say that is positive about ACT 1? The staff is friendly, however friendly doesn't pay the bills or help you get a job. I have attempted to have Act 1 assist me twice over the last 3 years and both times I was disappointed. The last time I noticed a job and I should have given up when I saw that their job postings were vague regarding – more... possible salary "Up to $35,000, full time, etc." When I called regarding the job they said it was part time, $8.00 a hour, very different.
Did I mention that I had to do all of the work regarding this job? I had to track down the potential employer for a pre screening phone interview and then call Act 1 back to set up the face to face interview? Unfortunately they dropped the ball and never contacted the potential employer.
I found Act 1 to be a waste of time. A temp agency is useless if they are not able to even attempt to find you a job. – less

Bad Experience
none (Former Employee), SoCalMarch 20, 2013
Cons: many
As usual, another recruiting company that tells you had great you are and as soon as you're off the phone, you never hear from them again and they get offended when you have the nerve to ask why they haven't returned your calls?

Sound familiar? Most agencies are full of the same people that don't have any idea of how to promote their candidates. Like – more... a cattle call, their mission is to amass huge numbers of resumes instead of focusing in on an individuals talents and why they may be a good fit.

AVOID THESE COMPANIES AT ALL COSTS!!! – less

UNPROFESIONAL
na (Former Employee), naApril 9, 2013
Cons: everything
These people are the worst job agency's to work with. They never return calls or emails no communication what so ever! I usually dontrdont rate business unless I have only good things to say but this time I had to let everyone who is considering to seek employment through them. RUN and dont look back you are better off finding employment on your own!
