Not the best Staffing Agency
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – June 27, 2016
I worked with Office Team (2) two years at a very hostile vehicle impound. (My last and only assignment) The job wasn't hard, the training was good, but the pay was not worth the daily ridicule you face with customers', not mention I had to threaten to quit before a raise was issued. Also the assignment was a 24/7 facility, which they milk the heck out of OT. This is good for extra pay but bad if your commuting by public trans. Walking-in any inner city streets is dangerous at certain hours.
However, my co-workers were AWESOME and so was the previous manager before he even QUIT.
Office Team spews lies about the assignments being a temp-to-hire and then after 3-6 months, you can barely get a hold of your assignment mentor for hiring questions.
Payment was always on time which kept me as long as it did and it's weekly w/ benefits. That's one thing I can say they've got right.
I have an extensive admin background plus I have a business degree in which they acted like they couldn't find a match-up for a higher paying assignment. I somewhat feel discriminated against as well, due to their positions offered. I have seen others offered better pay and business environments. It's like they put you in the least pleasant jobs if you are of color. Trust me, I rarely pull the race card but you can only give credit where it's due.
If you need something for meantime in between time, then this company can help. If you are looking for a steady direct hire job, I suggest to either find it independently or search other staffing agencies.
payment was never late
fighting for a raise, lies about direct hiring, delays new assignments, agency is not committed to finding new jobs
