They expect you to live for the job at a mediocre pay
Career Agent (Former Employee), Mattoon, ILOctober 1, 2012
Pros: the christmas party was fun
Cons: they dont expect you to have anything else that is more important than your job
Interview / hire people for short term assignments and temp to hire positions. Lying to the person you are hiring to get them to work is ok in their eyes, as long as the order is filled.

This is very true...they expect you to live there and have no life outside. If you are a family person, this is not the place to go. They are very good at lying to people for the "numbers".

I was there a short period of time, relocated.
Phone Consultant (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INSeptember 30, 2012
Pros: prizes could have been from a big screen tv down to coffee cups, it was just fun to win environment.
Cons: the insurance was the issue.
I answered phones , sold products, I learnt people can be so rude, Supervisor was great, co-workers liked me, hardest part of my job hearing people day in day out cursing you out for something they did, most enjoyable part of my job I loved the co-workers working with me to make me feel comfortable, they did not want me to leave when I left and relocated when I got married.

This place was a temp place and they hardly had any work. I learned how to short mail, put items on the machine for mail, and to load a box with any item to get ready for shipping.

Easy going and laid back
Telemarketer (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INMay 21, 2012
Pros: got to sit down, fourty hours a week or more, and commision
Cons: irate customers
I answered calls from customers that had our internet, t,v., land line, and cell phones. They called about high bills or outage of services. I made adjustments on some bills that were in good standing with us. I also set up the services we provided and sent out technicians if they needed one. I liked how it was fourty hour mandatory a week and we would have a chance to gain more if we wanted. My co-workers were funny. When our system went down on our computers we would just walk around going to each others cube talking and praying to give us at least an hour of free time. The hardest part was dealing with irate customers who wanted to talk to my supervisor but there was nothing he could do that I haven't already suggested. We also had challenges with who sold the most in the last month and we would win prizes like I won a PS2 and commision some times.

You don't get enough training to do the job.
customer service agent (Former Employee), Charleston,ILSeptember 23, 2011
Cons: very little training
They give you as little training as possible. The rest you have to figure out on your own or ask a co-worker. Then if you make a mistake, they write you up.

Pros: fellow workers were friendly
Cons: supervisors did not care about
Even tho this was a temp. to hire postion it was a sad place to work for.The temp agency was not friendly either.

It Sounds to me as if you were unhappy with the job you were doing...Not Innovative, they were the temp agency that placed you.
