Clerical (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 27, 2017
Donovan and Watkins was a great temporary agency that I have used over the years. My latest assignment was for the Data Services department of Western Geophysical. Duties included answering phones; typing; filing; and other office duties as assigned. Donovan and Watkins management team provided great assignments with the possibility of becoming permanent. The hardest part was not having steady work or income. The most enjoyable was working with different companies and industries.
Senior Data Analyst (Fraud Waste and Abuse) (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – February 14, 2017
This is a contract position, so I have limited contact with the Donovan and Watkins staff. However, the position in which I am placed is terrific. The job is interesting and the co-workers and management are fantastic. As a contract position, it is not intended to provide upward mobility. There are various opportunities to engage and learn new skills, and management is supportive of this undertaking.
Management fosters a fantastic work/life balance and many co-workers have become friends. There are numerous social gatherings and charitable causes undertaken by the entire group.
I could not have asked for a better environment, both professionally, and personally.
Benefits Specialist (Former Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – August 13, 2015
Company seems to always care for your needs and would do it's absolute best to make sure that you are place with a company that fits you and not your resume. A very productive staff, it has been a pleasure working with them.
Keep records of customer interactions or transactions, recording details of inquiries. Prepare invoices, shipping documents, and contracts. Verify customer and order information for correctness, checking it against previously obtained information as necessary.
The company never had any money on hand to pay for the payroll taxes so therefore I would have to wait to pay payroll taxes for up to 3 weeks; in which the company had to accrue for penalities and fines from the states and the IRS.
Work is on a temporary basis depending on size of projects. I review corporate documents and client emails for litigation purposes. The best part of the job are the people i work with. The worst part is the in-house politics.
Oil and gas and waste management assignments were typical accounting assignments. They were basic general accounting jobs checking the accuracy of the financial reports and preparing journal entries. I had plenty time to study during these assignments. The people on assignment were nice.
My recruiter is wonderful for placing me with the right skill set and pay grade. I'd recommend her to anyone looking to work right away and gain experience. She's always looking out for a good opportunity and she's very pleasant to work for. She always has a positive outlook on any assignment she offers and she is very supportive!
