Accountemps agents do the legwork...and I landed in two companies that I loved working for.
Customer Service/Call Center (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 14, 2016
My niece was a traveling pediatric oncology nurse, I took a year and traveled with her in California and Texas. Robert Half provided me the services for temporary full time placement. Working as a executive assistant in Ventura, California during tax season. I ran the front office, and set up appointments for the president of the company. My boss was smart and funny, there were only 3 of us, and we got along great. I loved meeting the clients and getting to know them. The hardest part of the job was knowing I was going to move to Houston and had to leave. On arrival in Houston Robert Half staff had interviews awaiting me, and I was hired at Allied Waste/Republic Services for a 6 month full time placement. I learned everything there is to know about the waste industry...including riding on a garbage truck, and a roll off truck, going to a landfill...pretty stinky there in 110 degree Houston. The field trips were a great way to gain hands on knowledge for assisting customers with complaints and providing superior customer service. Best manager I ever worked for, the co-workers were a close knit group and welcoming to new employees. The hardest part of the job was dealing with irate customers who didn't want to pay for trash service, it is required by the city, and is not a choice. The most enjoyable part of the job was scheduling roll off trucks.
Full time employment for a limited time is great for traveling.
Make less money than if you work directly for the company.
