A good temp service to find permanent employement
Laborer (Temp) (Former Employee), Independence, OHOctober 20, 2014
Pros: competitive start off wages and getting paid weekly
Cons: not guarenteed employment in company, weather conditions
A typical day working for Callos would consist of you shadowing a grounds crew member and working side by side to learn and understand the nature of the job and what the work expectations were. I learned how to landscape, prune plants and trees, planting trees and flowers,laying and fixing irrigations lines.The hardest part of the job was with standing the elements at times. The most enjoyable part of the job is the knowledge you require and the people you work for.

They will find you a job and forget you...
Marketing Specialist (Former Employee), PittsburghSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: no communication, lack of staff, terrible pay roll
I was contacted by this company for a Temporary position. I interviewed for the position and was offered a temp position. During my position I really enjoyed the company they put me in and the pay was good, but that's it.

The Callos companies forgot my pay twice (I had to contact them). And after my placement, I asked what would happen next. They said they would be in contact and try and find me another position. I never heard from them again.

Temp Work
Floater (Former Employee), Fox Chapel, PAApril 23, 2014
Pros: early hours
Cons: travel
The Callos Companies is a temp agency that offers full or part time employment. During my employment with them I worked at the Giant Eagles grocery store food chain head quarters. A typical work day was maintaining file room folders for in/out going employees, assisting in the mail room with sorting in coming mail and packages and assisting in other departments as needed. Each department head was professional in addition to the co-workers. The most enjoyable part of my job was having the opportunity to help out in the other departments and learning more about the company.

Terrible placement
Hospital worker (Former Employee), Downtown Pgh.March 12, 2014
Cons: no work
I filled out the application and interviewed with a counselor. I am qualified for many positions. But to this day they seem to forget about you. So if you are depending on them to find you work forget it! Worked for them years ago and they were professional. I really don't know what changed?
