Cons: prone to mistakes, can't admit fault
Has to be hands down one of the worst employment agencies to be assigned jobs by. I imagine the majority of positive reviews are ballot stuffers that work for peopleshare as recruiters.
If responding to an ad for them be prepared to drive thirty plus minutes away even though there may be an office right by you.
I responded to an ad through Craigslist – more... and I was called by a recruiter at one office (30 minutes away). When I got there the job was magically filled but he tried to put me in another job that was paying dramatically less.
I added my info to their database ensuring to disclose that I had a retail theft misdemeanor charge two years ago. He said that it wasn't a problem but some jobs won't accept me with it. I visually watched him add it to my record at which he informed me that all peopleshare have access to my information.
A few days later I get a call from Melanie from their Pottstown branch. She said she had a job for me in my area. I assumed she read through my file and already matched up my information with the prospective job client.
Long story short I traveled the 30 minutes out of the way to their office, took the drug test, spent three hours in a testing session all to have Melanie call me the day before I was supposed to start and say I couldn't work there because of my theft charge.
I was mildly annoyed since I wasted all this time when someone on their end dropped the ball on paying attention to details but I took the highroad and just said "we'll thank you for trying sorry it didn't work out its no problem."
She then becomes dismissive and begins to give me attitude. The audacity of someone who couldn't do her job right give me gruff about it.
She said it was a problem because the client was promised a worker the next day she then accused me of not disclosing the indie when she submitted a background check. (She never asked me about it and the form was a simple form there wasn't a spot to list it)
At this point I became increasingly annoyed and asked if she saw it on my file. She stammered and then made some excuses and the n finally admitted to seeing it but said there was no date and she thought it was over five years ago. (Which was a lie because if she had seen it it would of automatically dismissed me since the client would automatically refuse me on the grounds of the theft charge.)
Unprofessional, overloaded and not very efficient.
I'd seriously consider working through another agency. – less
