I was decieved into starting immediately to fulfill a position that’s was in need of a full time employee but was asked to go through an agency as a temp. I agreed to begin and was lead to believe this was a foot in the door. Actually, it was like a mat on the doorstep. Laid outside, not getting in.

It all depends on your health. The Medical department in Maplewood will find something wrong with a healthy person. So make sure your healthy for the physical and if so 4/5 weeks max. If you're not healthy and they find something wrong with you, be prepared to be running back and forth between doctors and YOU'RE responsible for any medical bills.. good luck!!

I was hired as a temp at the Maplewood location and then was transferred to the corporate headquarters in Newark, with the understanding that I would eventually be brought on permanently. I was there for a little over a year and was never offered a Full-time role. I was however initially hired immediately for the temp role. In my experience and in discussion with colleagues who are also temps, the company often retains the use of temps in their roles for extended periods of time vs hiring them as full time permanent employees.
