Great Temp Service
Camp Counselor (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Ithaca, NYAugust 22, 2017
I learned that children look up to many people. The hardest part of this job, it trying to quiet a little argument. The most enjoyable part of this job was the children, and how energized they would be.

Rewarding and challenging.
Resource Center Assistant (Current Employee) –  DalladJune 19, 2017
Rewarding and challenging work environment. Constantly busy and
thinking of creative ways to assist clients. I especially enjoyed assisting clients make e-mails for themselves and develop their resumes, job search and applying for jobs. I always tried to be encouraging as many unemployed individual sometime become disappointed during their job search. Most rewarding when a client
gained employment.
Pros
always busy
Cons
no real breaks

Rewarding career opportunity to mentor veterans and military spouses
Client Services Manager (Current Employee) –  El Paso, TXMay 29, 2017
it is nice to give back and be part of something much larger than myself in a values based organization. Working for a non profit charity is an amazing experience and I've been fortunate to meet the CIO and CFO of a Fortune 50 corporation as well as very senior executives at the Director and VP Level.

Unprofessional, not worth it
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 24, 2017
Main reason I took the job was because it paid for school. Mentor flat out refused to give further instruction regarding paying for tuition, unprofessional work environment, supervisors found any reason to dock your pay. Offered little to no flexibility with balancing school and work. If you have a good mentor assigned to you, view this job as a stepping stone to get to where you need to be, and get out of there fast.
Pros
Offers to pay for school
Cons
Unprofessional, sketchy mentors

Mission of WOS is a noble.
Client Service Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 9, 2017
For the amount of personal time you invest in your veteran consultants success in securing full time employment, you are held responsible for all issues good and bad and WOS will hold the bad issues against you. In my opinion the company needs to stop being reactive to situations and more proactive. They are a young non-profit but have more to learn on how a true non-profit organization is run. It is a good place to get client service experience and help veterans and young adults get acclimated back into the corporate environment.
Pros
Company paid single insurance.
Cons
10 accrued days for vacation, sick, and personal time. Lack of leadership.

Great for job advancement
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Morristown, NJOctober 19, 2016
They really do what they can to help you advance your career by starting you as a consultant and then getting your foot in the door to the job you want. The benefits are not that great but I think the fact that they get your foot in the door to a career will outweigh that con. It can be annoying with their policies regarding the company your consulting with and the manager they assign to you but overall it is a great company to get started with.
Pros
Get your foot in the door to a career

IT Help Desk Technician (Former Employee) –  New York, New YorkJuly 8, 2015
A typical day at Workforce Opportunity Services (W.O.S) consist of helping users with their computer issues. I learned that in the information technology (IT) field there are always new products and services that premier daily. In this field you will never stop learning. I had a great IT team with tremendous knowledge of hardware and software that are a pleasure to work with. The most difficult part of a help desk technician is telling the user you don't have an answer. When a tech doesn't have an answer, it is their responsibility to find it, and if the issue is to complex escalate it to a second or third-level
tier teammate. The best part of the job is the satisfaction you feel when you helped some one seeking your knowledge.
Pros
Free medical insurance.
Cons
37 1/2 work weeks
