none (Former Employee) – Marlborough, MA – April 14, 2016
3 weeks went by and they told me to wait another week according to their client. 1 whole month passes by and I get a call seeing if id like to go in for an interview. Shows you the lack of professionalism they have. They didn't even call for updates. Very young and immature people representing the company. Very upset over the run around and never being completly honest.
staff is young and didnt no how to be honest. give you the run around.
A typical work day depends on your shift. At Freed's Bakery, I was part of the second shift that went from 4pm to midnight. We arrive about 15 to 30 minutes before start time, place lunch bags in fridges, chi chat with colleagues, relax and dress up appropriately some 5 minutes before start time, punch in and move into the production hall. At Freed's bakery, I learned everything involved in the process of cupcake production. The management did a good job meeting with workers and discussing innovations and proposing solution to problems. The work team was a melting pot of people from all areas. This created small sub groups during lunch and dinner but this in no way affected work or production. The hardest part of this job was that It was hard to have a social life since we of the second shift sleep during the day and work at night and the most enjoyable part was the recognition given for hard work and meritorious services.
Learning through the various stages involved in cupcake production.
Administrative (Former Employee) – Waterbury, CT – January 19, 2016
A typical work day there is like a drama film! Not easy being a classy team player in a small ghetto office. Dealt with a lot of belligerence. Job culture not the greatest and Office Politics by nature played a significant role in the fact that I was not a fit. Least to say the office had some raw intelligence , but poor thinking habits. The environment was stressful and degrading.

it is a very well organized work place friendly and helpful staffing willing to work with people to help find them jobs, the hardest part of the job was figuring out where certain places were in the warehouse, my most enjoyable part of the day was driving around doing things on the forklift
Temp Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – April 16, 2015
Not much to say about this company. I never fail them but I feel they discriminated against me because of my past/record. I had a good experience meeting other people/co-worker. I learn never to get discourage by others lack of judgement
Temp Service (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – November 19, 2015
It was a temporary agency so my duties were to pretty much fill in for whatever the task must've been that date. It was a very flexible company and it is very known. They are dependable and if one can't fill in for that day they are persistent to find somebody who will.
Good pay, never misplaced checks, very popular
Had to work in every opening, always asked for overtime
Laborer (Former Employee) – Stratford, CT – September 5, 2013
A typical day at work was quite an interesting one. In the process of completing my given task, I learned how to make beds. Management was fun to work with. They looked out for my best interest and were very much goal oriented. My previous co-workers were fun to work with. We got the job done efficiently and effectively. The hardest part of the job was taking on the challenge of a specific routine and not having much knowledge about it. The most enjoyable part of the job was the environment and the persons with whom I worked.
Monroe staffing has provided employment but doesn't offer steady work nor does it have room for advancement or benifits. I would like to work in an enviornment where I can utilize my training and experience as an electrician.
Presser (Former Employee) – Waterbury, CT – April 6, 2015
I was interviewed and was chosen as a candidate for a Plant in Torrington CT. The job orientation was a week before starting the hands on training. A typical day was arriving ten mins ahead putting your lunch away putting goggles on and smock before entering area, punching in via scanner and gathering for morning meeting before reporting to department you was assigned to. My Department was Sub Assembly which consisted of handling and placing material carefully as instructed on machine to fill with nickle pellets, tape sides properly and place on table properly afterwards always in a timely and safety manner. Besides this you have to first do a check off list of your work area before and after tasks is done for the day. I felt excited and happy working there.
Commute was smooth, Great overall orientation to prepare for the position being trained for and good team environment
I would get nerves when Manager would approach and watch me train, he was very strict
