Horrible
Adecco Contractor,Accounting (Former Employee), Austin Location- Accounting OfficeMay 7, 2014
Cons: too many to count
I left this job because of extreme harassment- all parties involved in the harassment were fired shortly thereafter.
HORRIBLE
Applied had opted to lay off a majority of its employees to refill those positions with contractors (me). (We) The contractors were hated/harassed to the point of physical violence which I've NEVER experienced in a work place.
I – more... was appalled that ANY company would ever allow such behavior for any amount of time towards innocent people who just wanted to work and make a living. – less
