Temp Worker (Former Employee) – Connecticut – April 2, 2018
Have found over the years that Excel has currently lost what made it special: personal knowledge of requirements and challenges for jobs, time to talk to work out surprises. Need to be more careful detailing true job requirements and expectations. The personal, advocate touch is gone.
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – April 3, 2017
Excel Partners was an agency that would send you out to various companies. The company I was sent to was a very fast paced environment. Must be able to multitask. Must be able to seek information. The company was not information generous. It seemed as though you had to be in the "click" to be successful at the job.
You had a steady income.
Prepare to be stressed out for 4 hour shifts at a time.
Everyone work well together. Great communication. Hardest part dealing with different personalities and some co-workers that are not team players. But you have to continue to be the team player help the best way you know how and move on to the next tass.
Operations Assistant (Former Employee) – Purchase, NY – January 24, 2017
Professional organization with knowledgeable staff, good communication. Firm handles job searches for top companies in Fairfield and Westchester counties. They do a great job representing their clients.
They make it seem like you're going to get a job doing various Administrative work, but it's really a customer service representative job for Comcast. The training isn't as thorough as it should be. The tutorials should more be interactive. They push you into the job before you're actually ready. The turnover rate is really high for a reason. There's stick rules for pretty much everything. Never met anyone who was actually in charge.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – March 7, 2016
I worked at a call center for a local cable company. I learned how to be more patient than what I already was prior to working for the company. The hardest part of the job was answering the phones and listening to customers either yelling or crying about their service.
Breaks were by state law
Need to train a little more prior to going on the floor.
Recruiting companies don't often listen to their recruits before they're sent off to act as temp workers for the companies they are hired on the behalf of, but my experience with Excel has only been positive.
Though the company I am now working at on behalf of Excel has its own issues, my contact at Excel has been very helpful in helping me navigate my time while hired.
