Adecco is a temp agency. Through them, I worked at a Target Warehouse performing manual labor 10 hours a day for 4 days a week.
Warehouse Floor Team Member (Former Employee), Wilton, NY – June 15, 2015
Pros: Decent pay for temp work
Cons: Very short breaks, occasional bad/mean coworkers
A typical day at work is a 10 hour shift that included one 15 minute break and one 30 minute break. During this time, temps worked in one of three areas and the area I mostly worked in was called Feeding, where I took boxes off of carts, opened them up, and placed them on a conveyor to be sent to a packer that would process the contents. The work was very fast paced since there were usually 3 feeders and 18 to 20 conveyors open, giving every feeder 6 or 7 lines. Packers would pack fast, so feeders would have to be as quick as humanly possible. It required the feeders to have strong teamwork and communication skills so that none of the lines ran "dry". I did not learn anything new at this job, since it was simple hard labor, but it did strongly reinforce my teamwork and communication skills.
Because I worked through Adecco, the management I directly reported to was easy to contact and was very understanding and easy to talk with. My coworkers were friendly and helpful as well. However, the non-temp packers did have a stereotype where they treated their feeders poorly, and I did run into a couple of these packers.
The job wasn't difficult at all once I got used to it. Since it was simple hard labor, I didn't need to mentally strain myself, but because Target management really pushes all of its workers, the job was physically demanding and took a few weeks to get used to it. The job itself wasn't really enjoyable, but because the work was essentially good exercise and tended to go by quickly, it was a decent job.

Car Attendant (Former Employee), Melbourne, FL – June 15, 2015
Pros: You got to watch the shuttle launches and air shows and got paid for it.
Cons: Getting sun burn
A typical day would be getting ready for 500+ spectators per special event (shuttle launches and air shows). I have fun watching people watch history in the making. Management and co-workers were easy to get a long with. The hardest part of the job was standing about 6 hours. The most part of the job I enjoyed was watching history in the making and getting paid for it.
Assembler (Current Employee), Hobart, IN – June 14, 2015
Pros: Not having to stand the entire shift.
Cons: Short breaks, hiring in rate is longer, low insenive.
The job assignment I'm currently on has some challenges starting out at times. My typical day starts with job orders that need to be completed in a timely manner. At times we may run out of parts but my co-workers and I manage to get the orders out. I've learned a lot about some of my co-workers's team-readiness and personalities. The managers at times seems unorganized at times we it comes to getting orders out to their clients but they tend to jump back on the same page as everyone else that's on the project.The hardest part of the the job is not having the parts needed to finish the project.The most enjoyable part of the job is when you can finish all job orders ahead of schedule.

I would work in a factory packing choclate and i would wash cars and clean the inside as well to get the car ready for the state auction. The hardest part is making sure you used the right tools while cleaning the car and packaging chocolatwe in the right box.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Newark, NJ – June 11, 2015
Management was great, respectful & understanding. Staff was extremely helpful when I first started working for them. Hardest part of the job was dealing with large transactions like depositing large amounts of cash or withdrawing large amounts
Electronics Technician (Former Employee), Cranberry, PA – June 11, 2015
Pros: Good facilities
Cons: Quirky atmosphere
Adecco was great, professional and involved. Client was not so much; quirky culture, vague, uneven communications, disconnected managers & supervisors, unsatisfied coworkers who gossiped a great deal. Uncompetitive compensation vs work expectations.
Many rubber band fights, gossips sessions, personality conflicts. No music permitted; shades not allowed to be open. Work itself was OK, documentation & procedures often changed. Workspace was cramped but plans for expansion were in place. Nice lunchroom, toilet facilities, lighting.

Pros: get paid every week
Cons: Short breaks
The first company to have a pool table in the lunch room , a long with some video games and pc to surf the web. I also like the fact that you get paid every week. On of the big cons are the short breaks, a 30 min lunch break is to short.
