As Temp Agencies go, it’s better than most..
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – July 3, 2018
Working for Office Team wasn’t always a bad experience, most of the jobs were informative and kept you busy. However most of the clients hiring through Office Team do not follow through with temp-to-hire positions and often use any excuse to end the assignment. Office Team regularly over hires employees leaving little to no assignments available for current employees going off assignments. Average wait time between placement was 2-3 months with a week or less assignment in between. Average compensation was between 10.50-13$ an hour. Well under their advertised 14-16$ rate.
Dealing with Corporate (Robert Half) was often confusing and frustrating as they are unaware of State Laws outside of their home state, California.
I wouldn’t recommend Office Team or Robert Half if you’re looking for long term assignments, but if you’re looking to build a knowledge base of Administrative positions, and do not need to rely on them for regular employment, I’d say give them a try.
