Contractor (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – October 10, 2012
While I was trying to find a job in the northern Virginia area based on my experience. I was contacted by this agency. It was nothing permanent but they tried to find you jobs within reason whether it be travel restrictions and location restrictions. Some of the jobs I went on mainly took a day or fewer but it was something to put on the books based on the skills you may obtained on performing the job. In addition some of the jobs required some training that they did pay you for doing so.
Warranty Claims Assessor (Current Employee) – Dearborn, MI – September 28, 2015
The management team were great. The company was very employee focused and they were genuinely concerned about work related stress. The position was fun and enjoyable. However, the advancement opportunities in that position are extremely limited.
Employee focused employer with good benefits
advancement opportunities are limited depending on position
Systems Analyst (Current Employee) – Dearborn, MI – October 29, 2015
Fair pay rate, but lacking in compensatory benefits. The past year they switched insurance carriers. The new carrier was not accepted at most of my family doctors, therefore I had to go on the open market for my dependents. Contact with account rep and recruiter are minimal at best.
Manager (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – October 5, 2015
The company has made great strides in developing a corporate vision and strategy. The leadership team from President to VP are pretty stellar, slow to take action, but definitely strong mentors.
Sadly, Advantage has attrition issues for those with less than 3 years at the company. The reason is that there are people who have been with the company their entire careers. This group of people have done very little to develop their craft. They are complacent, inflexible, entitled, and their skills are stale.
Work Autonomously, family focus culture, strong work/life balance
Constantly changing plans, performance issues are not addressed
Patient Account Representative (Current Employee) – Mobile, AL – April 5, 2016
I really enjoy working here. I love the people and the overall culture at the office. We all work really hard. You have to be a self starter to work here, because there is no one watching what you are doing. However, if you do not work hard it will show on the monthly report.
Thank you for taking the time to review Advantage. I am glad to see that you are having such a positive experience with us, and that you feel everyone on your team is working hard to meet your goals!
Job Work/Life Balance
Little to no room for advancement
Lifecycle Support Technician (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – April 21, 2015
I was a field service tech. While I had LAN/WAN management experience I was relegated to pushing 200lb printers up and down government hallways. I was always kept just outside the amount of hours that qualified me for any benefits. Not to mention the fact I incurred expenses like an independent contractor but was on a W2. Last but not least, I was setup for direct deposit but often got paper checks that most places wouldn't cash because the company had developed a rep for writing bad checks. If you are desperate for a check, then fine, enter at your own risk. Otherwise...do your best to find another company, or just contract yourself out.
Quick and easy assignments, competitive wages.
not a place to grow your career or develop new skills
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – June 1, 2016
Got placed on an assignment, things didn't work out. Anything goes wrong, they blame you. No matter what they tell you, anything goes wrong on that assignment, you are dismissed and never work for them again. It doesn't matter if you are a good worker, your skills don't matter, you simply don't matter. They got plenty more just like you waiting to replace you. You will never get a second chance. Sad but true.
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. I am disappointed to see that things did not go as you had hoped and that you feel you were blamed for things. If you would like to discuss your concerns further please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will be in touch with you.

Great experience, well organized
Payroll Coordinator/Recruiting Assistance (Former Employee) – Cranston, RI – March 14, 2016
Advantage Resourcing was a wonderful challenging environment. Although I was their Payroll Coordinator, I also learned about Recruiting and I became very interested in that also. I come from a diverse background, which allows me to experience numerous challenges, such as different software, the ability to learn quickly and the challenging and successful part of the position.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Advantage! I am so glad to see that you had such a positive experience! We work to make sure all of our employees are able to experience various areas of our business in order to broaden their skills and abilities. I am happy to see that you were able to learn so much during your time with us!
Job Work/Life Balance
Having an immediate position available for Temps
Fondu Temp/Mini Line Worker/Production Line Worker (Former Employee) – Leitchfield, KY – June 28, 2015
They were able to find work for some Temps with little or no wait for employment. Pay was ok, but the Temp Service took a good portion of employees salary. Being able to work longer hours was a plus, but wasn't always good when employees had prior engagements.
Being able to work immediately
Not knowing if you are being transfered somewhere else for employment
Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your time with Advantage. I am disappointed to see that your experience with our senior leadership team was not as positive as I would hope. However, I am glad to see that you felt well supported by our corporate staff. We work very hard to meet the needs of all of our employees. If you would like to discuss your concerns more in depth, please feel free to reach out to your Human Resources representative.
Basically a typical day of work would include removing pumps, valves using hand tools. You're working outside so you get to experience different weather conditions. You learn different techniques as to how measurements are taken, how certain machines run differently than others although they may look the exact same. Hardest part of job i would say is the pain it puts on your body having to climb in and out of small areas to check measurements. Most enjoyable was just being in the atmosphere with good people who care about safety and helping you get back home to your family.
its contract work so you're able to make a lot of money in short period of time
Assemble Technician for Intuitive Surgical (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – June 10, 2016
co-workers were not so friendly to me as a new employee. The hardest part of the job was taking over tables or other servers and waiting on big groups of tables that would want to have different tabs. I enjoyed learning the menu and talking with the customers.
