Productive and fun working enviorment
Intake Clerk/Administration Assistant (Former Employee), Roanoke, VAOctober 28, 2013
Pros: 1 hour lunch break and being able to lunch when you want to between 11 am and 2 pm
Cons: no breaks
The typical work day going to work getting there 30 minutes early to get set up so I can be ready for my clients and prepared to start on time. I have to get my computer ready, my printer on and the fax up and running. I would prepare to pull all files needed for the day and have access to the file rooom to pull additional files as need be. I have help – more... right next door to me if I need her, and the specialist in the back offices if I need them. The hardest part of the day was just trying to get people to come in and do there family obligations. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to help people truly in need. – less

Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee), Melville, NYOctober 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 – more... 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 – less

I wouldn't recommend them to anyone unless you are on your last straw!
Packager (Former Employee), Mullins, SCSeptember 30, 2013
Cons: they lay you off without notice and take their time placing you some place else.
The pay rate is very low and the jobs aren't guaranteed! They over work you if placed at Sopacko. There is no room for advancement and if a job becomes available, you better hope that they call you. Also, they always say over the phone that they don't have any positions available when online it says that they do.

Clerical Assistant (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WISeptember 20, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: long lunches
Typical days at work were busy. You learned how to be prompt. The management was very open, meaning you could speak about anything. The Co-workers were team players. The hardest parts of the different jobs were working at slower paces at times. The most enjoyable part was experiencing working at different companies.

Olsten Staffing
Line Operator (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNAugust 15, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: dangerous and wreckless work place
The coworkers at each company that Olsten staffs were friendly and hard working, the manageent could be better if they really understood what the eployees went through when we work. I picked up the experiance of quality control and assembly of products. The easiest part of each work day was break and none of it was enjoyable, the work places were dangerous – more... and was not kept clean. – less
