Recruiter (Former Employee), Duluth, GA – August 28, 2014
Pros: nothing that comes to mind
Cons: wasted 10 months of my life/career there.
A typical day at work consisted of being the only recruiter in the office. The branch manager was never there so I was left in the branch to do a lot to work by myself. I had never worked in a "full desk" staffing environment so I was new to the fact that I had to do everything by myself and work 50+ hours a week including nights, weekends and holidays. – more... In the 10 months I was there, I saw the company as a revolving door. Several recruiters from other branches quit and the District Manager was demoted, therefore bringing in a new DM with no staffing or management experience. The branch manager at the location I worked at, hired me in the hopes I would take her place so she could take a job working from home. She never told me that until I found through another employee that worked in HR. Very unprofessional company, very unprofessional work ethics. – less
HP Support Technician (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CA – July 26, 2014
The management staff, I met are nice compare to some unfortunate employees in this company. I guess it depends on who you meet. The jobs in this company can be met with that it can offer day by day jobs or regular contracts.
Recruiter (Current Employee), Longview, Texas – July 13, 2014
Greeting customers, entering payroll, I meet new people everyday. Help associates in placing them into a career and help clients with placing in the correct associates with them. Sales are the hardest part. Everyone I work with are there to help.

Technical Recruiter (Former Employee), Bloomfield Hills, MI – May 15, 2014
My typical day at work was making calls to those seeking a job opportunity in the Automotive Industry. I reviewed resumes and conducted a lot of interviews; face-to-face interviews but mostly phone screens. I made bids when submitting a candidate and negotiated markups with our clients. I also had to discuss Advantage Technical Resourcing's benefits – more... to our candidates and how they work.
I was able to learn a lot about the recruiting business; how it works in the job market, the advantages and disadvantages, etc. The biggest learning experience for me is understanding employment authorization in the US. I learned how Visas worked in the US including the cost, how to get a Visa, how long they last, what makes you qualified, etc.
Most of my managers were Recruiters who would be classified as the Lead Recruiter. Other Managers would be known as Account Managers, handling business with our clients and discussing the billing of each position we try to fill. They are extremely talented in what they do and know how to coach their colleagues.
My co-workers had a competetive side to filling more positions than others but we were all helping one another too. We wanted to increase the hires for the company as much as possible, while trying to keep our numbers higher than the other recruiter. Everyone believes in how much teamwork is necessary in the recruiting business and we all had fun.
The hardest part of the job is filling the positions before your competitors do. Time was always against you and it was more difficult to find someone with a specific talent that's hard to find.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the team I worked with. I stayed as long as I did, looking for an HR opportunity, because of my co-workers. They made my job fun and we all pushed eachother to work harder. I couldn't have asked for a better team at my time at Advantage. – less
veterinary technician (Former Employee), Norcross, ga – April 26, 2014
Pros: the work and pay
Cons: veterinary director and does not talk to employees about issues
Working for intuitive is great the company itself treats its employees well but the Head Veterinary is very passive aggressive and defames people's characters without thinking about what she's doing and does not believe in talking to employee's when she does not like something. My coworkers were great fun loving and team players. The best part of the – more... job was the work and my fellow contract workers in Atlanta. Advantage staffing is truly unprofessional and does care about the employees they hire. The veterinary director is truly unprofessional and has not concept of professionalism and common courtesy especially when she is rarely around but makes assumptions without finding out the truth. – less
I feel like Advantage has a lot of room to make improvments
Clerical Associate (Former Employee), Donelson, TN – April 3, 2014
Pros: working with the public, hours
A typical day at work was traveling to Cerqa to check in new start employees or do DNR's at the request of the managers. Going back to the office and doing what was requested of me. I learned how to speak more professionally, use microsoft outlook, and helped people acquire the job position that they fit best. Management was poorly constructed, bad – more... attitudes all around with my co-workers. Hardest part of the job was overlooking co-workers attitudes towards the people that came through the company looking for jobs. Most enjoyable part of the job was helping the different types of people with many backgrounds find the right jobs for them. The most important thing to me was getting the people a position they were skilled in and would enjoy. – less
