Temporary customer service representative (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – December 13, 2018
This position was a temporary position while another employee was on maternity leave. I only worked here for approximately three months. I enjoyed the position with Albaugh while I was there. The company is small and close-knit.
Employment Verification Specialist (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – December 13, 2018
Loved working for this company. I only had 1 job the whole time I worked for them and only left because the company wanted me to become a permanent employee and I did not feel it was the right fit for me.
It took them over 3 months to get back my personal items Because my manager had "lost" them
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – November 20, 2018
Could hardly get a call back much less get my personal belongings. 3 months AFTER my last assignment with them I was called in to collect my personal belongings that they FINALLY obtained. Was less then impressed with the company I temped for and even less with Palmer
Fun company to work for,relaxed and very understanding of contract employees.
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Ames, IA – September 7, 2018
Palmer Group placed me in one of the best companies in Ames area and I was offered a full time position by the company after 6 months. Palmer was very understanding and always checked on me to see how I was fairing at my job. I would totally recommend Palmer Group to anyone especially recent college engineering students.
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – August 30, 2018
I worked for Palmer Group for a short time while I was between jobs. The management was flexible with my class schedule and allowed me to increase and decrease hours as needed. When I found permanent employment, it was very easy to terminate my contract with Palmer Group. I still receive follow-up calls, checking in with me at my new position and asking if I know of anyone needing a job. Overall I am very pleased with my experience.
Palmer Group prides itself on helping others. It is a fun work atmosphere with leaders that care.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – August 27, 2018
I have worked at Palmer Group for over 2 years now and have no plans of leaving anytime soon. Hard work is rewarded here. Palmer Group offers a variety of company events that make working here awesome.
Production Seed Tech (Former Employee) – Slater, IA – August 24, 2018
I have had a couple of temporary positions through Palmer Group. I felt that they matched me well with the jobs where I was placed. I received enough communication from them to be helpful, yet not so much as to be bothersome.
Very helpful employees.
Not quite as many matches to temp jobs as I would like.
Marketing Assistant (Current Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – August 8, 2018
The company is made up of individuals who are committed to making lives better through every role and responsibility. I have supportive and encouraging coworkers that make the company culture so welcoming. I love coming into work everyday!
Banking/Mortgage Recruiter (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – June 25, 2018
Palmer Group is a great place to work both directly with the company as well as with there placement services. Leadership is great and you can trust that when they make decisions they are doing so with the employees and company's best interests in mind.
Palmer Group was the first time I dealt with a hiring agency and why I will never work with one again. I took time out of my day to meet with them, did all the assessments, and never heard from them again. I was told I would hear back within a week with results and potential jobs. When I didn't, I made multiple calls and sent multiple emails with no response. This is not an agency that I would recommend to anyone. I'm guessing they dont like when someone wants direct hire and they don't like if you know you don't want temporary data entry work. They only want you if you're willing to do terrible contract work so they get the most profit.
Claims Call Center Representative (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – May 20, 2018
I was extremely disappointed when I worked a contract through Palmer group. When I was told my contract was ending early by the company I was working for Palmer group had no idea and my staffing recruiter assigned to me apparently wasn’t my recruiter anymore and I wasn’t told that. They told me they would call me and set me up with a new recruiter and job and they never called. Never got calls asking how the job was going. It was honestly terrible and that unfortunate due to me knowing the company and people for 10+ years.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – May 7, 2018
Whether Palmer is placing you in your next career or you work for them, you can tell they sincerely care about their employees. Very fun and collaborative environment. Palmer's employees make every effort to ensure they are putting you in a position to succeed. I would definitely recommend utilizing their services.
Data Entry (Former Employee) – Urbandale, IA – March 5, 2018
Sign in, build and update Excel spreadsheets, update websites, work with HTML, eat breakfast and/or lunch in the cafe, and get to know awesome coworkers. Management is friendly and easy to get along with. Diverse culture, lots of work with charities, and a health/wellness group. The hardest, and most enjoyable part of this job was learning HTML.
Free coffee, fun programs, volunteer work, fun colleagues
