Switchboard/administrative support, Amsterdam, NY - November 23, 2011
This is a nice place to work, but they do all of the hiring through temporary agencies. I worked there just shy of six months in a temp to perm administrative position. I know there were other people hired in the same way for the same position. I don't believe they ever had any intention of hiring anyone permanently for this job, but I have no knowledge of their hiring policies for other positions. A general lack of communication and focus creates difficulties for employees. Tasks are often presented at or beyond the deadline for completion. Projects have multiple changes to be expected throughout; there is difficulty obtaining feedback after each. The new management is rarely in the office, which contributes to delays.
