General (Former Employee), Chicago Suburbs, IllinoisApril 3, 2014
This was a staffing company that always set me out on assignments. They looked out for me and I am hard working and dedicated. Then things slowed down and this company had to close its doors. I was sad to see them go.

Very Unpleasant Experience
Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 26, 2012
This firm is inefficient and poorly managed. There are fatal problems at every level and, as a rule, they are more interested in making money than in getting things done well or meeting requirements. There is no positive feedback or incentives for staff. Extremely stressful with a very high turnover rate.

Temporary agency for people who are in love with fine dining
cook/temporary assignments (Former Employee), Chicago, Illinois northwest sideApril 22, 2012
Pros: free lunch, learn more about restaurant industry
Cons: carrying heavy items that may weigh too heavy
The hardest part of the job as a cook was to keep up the pace as a professional in the culinary industry in Chicago.

A typical day is arriving at work in uniform, expecting to feed up to 375 or 275 people at an event. At the beginning hor doerves are done and then salads. Desserts are decorated and so on.

To stay in the industry it is expected to – more... have a food and sanitation license and culinary degree. – less

Overall, a filth-ridden pigsty that can't even keep itself together. I have nothing positive to say about it.
Temporary General Day Labour (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABFebruary 17, 2014
A typical day here had any Temp sitting on their rear, waiting for the managers to give them some work to do for that particular day, usually waiting for up to 10 hours to even be called up to get a work slip. Half the time, there was only enough work for 6-20 people, while the other half, there was work enough for three times the number Temps that – more... worked for Prime, which usually cause a mad dash as everybody tried to get the job they wanted.

I learned how to demolish a building, and that i can't be trusted with any tools except a hammer while trying to fix/build something.

Management was poor, barely organized, and 2/3 of the time over half the staff were missing. Payment was rarely on time, if it was even there at all, staff charged Temps three times the price of rented equipment, even if one hadn't rented anything, apparently believing us to be unable to read the fine print in the pamphlets. (Example: Helmet, gloves, steel-toed boots, safety glasses - $10.35 including tax, in updated pamphlet. When speaking to the front desk - $31.15 plus tax.)

The co-workers were extremely rude people who would constantly try to cause each other to have 'accidents' on-site, so they could get paid more for doing a better job.

The hardest part of the job was actually the weather, as most of the jobs were outside, and the employers. Many times, Temps caught hypothermia, or heat stroke from the harsh weather, because the employers cared more about the job getting done, and less about the fact that we could no longer stand up due to severe dehydration or extended exposure to sub-zero temperatures. (Example: 40 degrees celsius and above, or -35 and lower.)

The most enjoyable part of the job, was the snack vendor at the Prime building. He was pleasant, cheerful, and informative, when asked about what was going on in the news. – less

Cash Daily!!!
General Labourer (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 2, 2014
Pros: you are not forced to work daily, cash daily
Cons: its an undignified place to work
Sure you get paid on a daily bassis but theres a price to pay. Most of the jobs are physically demanding and not your typical heavy lifting im talking about heavy lifting multiplied by excessive bending and being treated as a minority. But hey it pays the bills. and puts that colorfull money in my pocket.

cash paid daily labourer work.
Labourer (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABOctober 26, 2012
Pros: no free lunches
Cons: not always 8 hr days
well when i get to the cite all work gear must be on and you have to be ready to go right away, your team leader or work boss meets you and takes you to where you will be working. Then he tells you when your breaks are and how long they will be then he tells you what you are going to be doing for the day.after that your basicly doing that for 8 hrs – more... until home time then you will go back to the office and get paid for how many hours you did and what you got from your work slip like food charged or new gloves and safety glasses and the rides to and from work all come off your pay at the end of the day. – less
