Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – October 24, 2013
I worked on recruiting programs for temporary employees and loved it. I worked in the Sales and Marketing Department as a Marketing Coordinator. We would have an annual President's Club trip with the 500 highest achieving Sales representatives which would be a huge undertaking for the Marketing department. We would plan the entire event.
I spoke daily with Olsten sales representatives daily from all over the country which I really enjoyed. The hardest and most stressful part of this position was that you need to stay extremely organized
Production worker at various agencies (Former Employee) – Dillon, SC – November 29, 2016
When I am at work, I ensure I am on time always . Be at my work station online and doing what I am supports to do. Move around a lot to location to location, where ever I am needed. Go far beyond than just ordinary duties. Coming back from my breaks on time way before the bell rings. Selected to train new employees and take on new assignments. One of the very few ones also selected to stay and help the next shift out, to get them caught up because they fell behind the previous that they work.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Timmonsville, SC – August 15, 2016
it was a very nice job I loved it. I've learned to unload and load trucks. to pull orders according to the date and order sheet. Manger was great .co-workers was very helpful. The pace sometimes to keep the line running at first. Was to run my department with no help and succeed at it. Making it look very easy and the look on the managers face when the job was done correctly.

CLERICAL (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – April 16, 2016
Olsten Staffing has a nice group of employees to work with, problem is Olsten Staffing with take work from anyone and will not stand behind you, as an employee if they send you on a position with a company who's management is less than professional. You are stuck at that job, if you quit they will deny you unemployment, even when you have asked to be placed on another assignment. Sometimes it is months between assignments.

Senior Engineering/Manufacturing Recruiter (Former Employee) – Milwaukee WI – March 31, 2016
If the owner was still the owner, I would be a lifer, as someone once told me. This job was the best of the best. The owner cared deeply about each and every person that worked for them and instilled in them the priority of being ethical and honest in the temporary staffing world. Treat your customers and candidates with respect and care and they will give it back.
Packer (Former Employee) – Mullins, SC – May 21, 2016
You will get great work experience n production also you get to know a lot of people you will learn how to work in a fast paste environment and how to do paper work. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting the experience meeting new people and the pay.
Circuitry Inspector (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – February 17, 2016
Having worked with circuit design many years ago,I found it to be very interesting work. I especially liked finding engineering errors in a circuit design which was important before the process went any further thus costing the company money and time.
Pay/Bill Specialist (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – January 4, 2016
It was a busy place and I learned I could do a lot more than I thought I could. The most enjoyable part of this job was after establishing a system of complicated billing, putting it down on paper. The hardest part was leaving due to a low salary.
I love the job that I have, and there is great stability. However, I would love it more if they could offer jobs that would eventually turn into hired-on positions. The pay is competitive compared to other temp positions, but considering the fact that there are no benefits/paid time off/paid holidays, the pay should have been higher.
Stability and full-time work schedulle
Pay rate may not be enough to cover days that you do not work, healthcare, and other things that life may bring.
