Pros: good breaks, and lunches and personal friendships
Cons: some days were just stressful
Most days were fast-paced, sometimes eventful but controlled. I learned team work in a big way. Management was great and always helpful. Co-workers were wonderful and we always worked together as a team. It was hardest to see people sick but it was most enjoyable to meet new people and have conversation with them.

Assembler for Phillips Lifeline (Former Employee), Murrysville, PA – August 25, 2014
Working as a temp at Adecco for Phillips was very difficult because the full time employees thought that they were better then you and they would try to make your day difficult. They weren't very good with explaining what needed done and would turn you in to the management if you werent going fast enough or if you were going to fast.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Columbia, MD – August 25, 2014
Pros: gain experience doing different jobs, learn new things.
Cons: they know when your assignments end they don't tell you until that friday when you clock out.
I learned many new things working with Adecco Temp Agency. My recruiter was the best and then she left. Things at my branch haven't been the same since. Management is not all together as they should be. Clients can most times treat you not so good considering your a "temp". That gets thrown around a lot. If you speak up for yourself, your let go immediately. – more... Best thing is to do your job and say nothing. Then they put a negative review in your file which leads to not being employable. You don't know this but yet you faithfully call in each week your availability only to not get assigned. I ended up switching branches and I like the staff at the new branch. Very well organized. Most assignments you can become permanent. – less
Laborer (Former Employee), Greensboro, NC – August 24, 2014
It is a temp service the only people they are helping is themselves and the companies they pimp you out too. At least they are the ones who gain the most for your servitude. I learned that if the company doesn't need new people they wont hire you full time. They will use you until your services are no longer required and you feel abused if you work – more... really hard to get on with that company. – less
Temporary Assisgnments (Current Employee), Miami, FL – August 22, 2014
Pros: very culturally diverse environment.
I enjoyed my assignments. In the interim of the different assignments, I've learned something about IT, software, phone etiquette, perseverance in a different environment. The management at Adecco is very competent and responsible. They are careful to match you up with the correct information before sending you out to the interview. It is quite enjoyable – more... to work with Adecco. – less
Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee), Nashville, TN – August 22, 2014
Pros: great jobs
Cons: poor customer service
Adecco, is a great staffing agency with very good temp assignments. However, the staff can be somewhat rude and short tempered concerning how they interact with you. People just need to make money and be able to find work that is satisfying and that they can expect to be able to depend on. This shouldn't be lost on a staff person or ignored because – more... a staff person is concerned about their quotas or perhaps they just don't have a good personality fit for the position they were in. Either way, no one should be made to feel like they are bothering someone because they ask about job opportunities. – less

Data entry and what ever they might need you for (Former Employee), Naples, fl – August 19, 2014
Pros: most likely will get a monday to friday 8 to 5pm assignment
Cons: unprofessional environment, people and bad business
I was called last minute noticed at 11:30am when I was supposed to be at work at 10:30 am same day. They scheduled me for an assignment that was canceled (also last minute) and never notified me. Got at assignment place and nobody knew where to send me. Contractor lied to their customers about our employment (they told customer that we where from their – more... company instead as sub-contractor) when they started to question our expertise because we did not know how to answer questions. We were trained for 5 minutes before starting to work with customers. I applied for a data entry position as I was sent to help with traffic telling people where to go down the hall. They randomly called who ever was available that day instead of looking into their profile, profession or knowledge. Very unprofessional environment, people and business. Wont work for them again even if I am desperately. Very bad first impression. – less
