Was a temp agency
Laborer (Former Employee), Ontario, CANovember 4, 2014
Pros: it was a temporary fix and a pay check
Cons: everything
The place was very mismanaged, fortunately I only went to the office once a week to pick up a check, now the job assignment they sent me on was okay, was just a lot of hard work digging trenches and spraying pesticides.

Extra Busy, No attention to Employees, Misleading
Demo (Former Employee), Bakersfield ,CaliforniaJune 10, 2014
Pros: daily pay
Cons: go in to the office, an tell me what you think....
Went in applied for work with this company, While I'm sitting there I hear other workers for "Pirate" explain to others that completed their application before me what they needed to do to be placed on the work list (in full detail)... I finish my application turns it in all I'm told."ok we start calling tomorrow for jobs" I'm like uhhhh ok.... kind of threw me off, I was ready for the whole "We text jobs, what kind of work are you seeking open availability speech" that didn't happen, so the following day I called to see if there was work available. Immediately I'm told they place people in jobs – more... that they are familiar with so keep calling in until they get familiar with me. I was like huh..?????? So I received a text concerning a job. I called in to accept the job, the individual said "do you mind working in the heat" (No) "do you have a clean background "yes" steel toe boots "yes" she asked for my telephone number an said, I'm putting you down for the job, but let me call you back, I'm the only one here in the office an the phones are gonna go Crazy, I got cha down an I'll call you back to let you kno where to go. Ok good enough, So I'm amped up. I go buy newer steel toe boots and some work things I would need while I'm working in the sun, I get up this morning called to see where I needed to meet. An was told the positions was filled "Huh" so I explained to the Person over the phone what was discussed prior an all she could say is Okay, an ended the phone call.
Pretty rude unprofessional attitude.... After I was told I had the job... I was just calling to see where do I go for work.... (Shrugs) – less

Great place to experience different occupations very quickly
Temporary Worker (Former Employee), San Diego, CADecember 26, 2013
Pros: get to experience different work environments and people. i get to build skills in different fields.
Cons: work is never consistent. the pay is very low, since they are temporary employement aganecies. no growth.
I am currently an employee at two temporary agencies. Throughout my duration of being employed by them, I have to do everything from shipping and receiving at warehouses, doing general labor, to security work. For me to have successfully completed assignments in these fields, I have to be highly adaptable in the workforce, which I already am.
