Electronic Test Technician (Contract Employee) (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 15, 2016
As a contract employee for Honeywell, applied effort pays big dividends. Was very satisfied with the electronic test technician position. What impressed me the willingness of fellow team members giving me the support. Especially when days got challenging. Work section was in the negative balance upon hire. Was instrumental in delivering product full quota upon schedule.
Thorough on the job training, supportive team members, and complete documentation

IT Help Desk Tier 1 Specialist (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – March 20, 2016
A typical day at work consist of making sure the customers are satisfied, taking the time out to understand what is going on with the customers. There are so many things to learn daily, how to focus on what the problem is with or clients, and how to resolve this issue. Sometimes we just have people to call and thank the company for being so reliable. I took no more then 20 calls a day, the reason is because dealing with scanners, cv 61, cn 50 and ipads, they need a lot of attention and we could be on a call for 1 hour. Management is awesome, very understanding and they will never be down your back about anything, I guess that's because majority of my team are very proficient at the job. The hardest thing about my job is nothing I enjoy all the challenges, so nothing is to hard. I enjoy everyone, we all get alone and we all work together.

Technician (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – August 24, 2012
They seemed to work very had to place you with a company, I was very impressed by that compared to other placement outfits that were pretty much worthless. As time passes, however, their support to YOU seems to disappear. They do not return calls for what would seem to be simple questions, or they are unfriendly if they do answer. I've been with them for over a year & it would be nice if they offered at least one paid day off for the money they have made off of my good record at the company. No holidays, no vacation days, no sick days, no raises. What have you done for me lately? Temp/contract works both ways & I'll be happy to lay them off when the chance comes.
no pto. rediculous expensive health plan. no support.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Seattle – October 9, 2012
On the surface this seems to be a great place to work as a recruiter because Boeing is their #1 customer. Their competition must not be much better because PDS supplies the majority of contract resources to them. That's where it all starts to fall apart. They have a shotgun approach to recruiting, stressing quantity over quality. There are few business processes documented leading to redundant effort and mistakes by the staff. Pay is very lacking in comparison to other agencies and industry standards. It's really a shame that their bar is low and that they reward and retain mediocrity. Small office, small minds.
Systems and Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – May 4, 2016
Contract employees are held to high standards, as expected, but recruiters go above and beyond to find placement for employees. I had requested a high dollar amount per hour, believing I would have to negotiate down by about $2/hr. My recruiter actually negotiated with the client and I ended up receiving $4/hr. more than my original high dollar amount. In addition, my contract was extended twice and only ended when the project implemented. I would love to represent PDS Tech again.
