Cable Technician (Current Employee) – Vienna, VA – February 15, 2017
The work you get is never in your control. One week I was working in a hotel and the next thing I know I'm waiting a month for the next job. The recruiters are unreliable and at the whims of larger companies they hire to.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Bay Area, CA – July 14, 2018
I had the displeasure of "working" with outsource, I was informed that I was going for a "working interview" for a project managers position. The job site I was been sent to was a 5 hour round trip using public transport so I had the cost of renting a car for the day, I contacted the "company" that I was being sent to do the "working interview" the night before who informed me it was not a working interview, I told him I would discuss it with him the next day. The guy I met was actually the owner of the company who was on his tools so I doubt whether an owner of a company on his tools would have much call for a PM, he informed me that he was looking for a PM, that this was not a working interview and that he needed a technician as he was 4 weeks behind on his workload. I contacted Outsource immediately to inform them of this who instructed me to keep working, the job we were there to do could not be completed as the guy didn't arrange for his IT guy to be available that day so we could not get the CCTV camera working, HE told me to go home.
Having had the expense of renting a car and providing all my own PPE gear which I had to buy for this specific site, get up at 05:30am and returning home at 13:00 Outsource paid me a grand total of $68 !!
I would class Outsource as a cowboy outfit, if you take no pride in your work or you've been chased off all the sites in the Bay Area and can't get work, try Outsource, if you are a professional and take pride in your work stay well clear of Outsource
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 10, 2018
I was a full desk recruiter. I worked from home. Typical day; look at planner and complete what wasn't finished from the day before. Follow up with clients and candidates. Make around 20-30 calls a day. Hardest part of the job was generating business for myself. Most enjoyable was being able to work from home.
Low Voltage Technician (Current Employee) – Los Angeles County, CA – June 21, 2018
If you're between jobs and need something flexible, this is a good place to work. Pay is not commensurate with the cost of living in Los Angeles, however. If you want to stick with this line of work, go Union.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – June 14, 2018
Culture is very relaxed and everyone gets along. Metrics are a factor but if you make money on your commission or considered top recruiters, then people leave you alone. Difficulty may be doing 3 peoples jobs in 1 with a fast paced work environment.
AV FIELD TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 27, 2018
A typical work week is working for a variety of companies that need the extra help outside of their own company or company's that interviewed you and wanted to test and see if you would be a good fit for their company. Workplace culture was fast paced. Hardest part of the job is being sent home early due to too many workers and finishing the scoop of work early. The most enjoyable part of this company is being able to work with a variety of companies.
health, dental, vision benefits after 90 days, and competitive pay
SECURITY SYSTEM TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – March 19, 2018
I received my work orders a day or two in advance. They were complete and the addressed easy to location. The time reporting system was easy to use. I was paid on time. What more could a technician ask for.
Cable Puller / Cable Technician / Computer Tech (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 22, 2018
everything you'd expect at a temp agency. I learned a lot working various jobs. the most enjoyable part of the work is when you get placed with different companies and leads. Some are memorable, and some are just you wish you never worked for.
Journeyman Electrician (Former Employee) – Bay Area, CA – January 12, 2018
They put me on a project with a company who was overworking their electricians with low pay and unsafe work conditions. The arrogance of some of the workers there was ridiculous. I then decided I would not deal with outsource and continued unemployment. My unemployment was denied because they told EDD that I refused a job offer. This eventually suspended my EDD benefits but did not matter because I was already back at my Local.
Cable Technician/Installer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 7, 2018
This company is good at moments but the work isn't stable or long term if your lucky you get two months of work but then you have to wait for days or weeks for another job and sometimes you might get a job that isn't your job title at all
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 2, 2018
