My experience was great, until my first temp job ended. I was told by both Palmer Group and the company I worked at that there was not as much work as they had expected therefore, the job was over. Two months went by and I wasn't being offered anything. When I finally, in desperation, asked if there was something I could do to make myself more marketable I was told that because the previous company let me go due to my unsatisfactory speed, it would be hard to place me.
I was shocked and astounded! I had purposely checked in with my supervisor every week to get feedback. I was never told I was too slow. It was suggested that with time I would get faster, but no other comments were ever made.
I told the person at Palmer Group that I would have to take a day or two to process this as I am not used to being lied to by a temp agency, nor a company I am working for!
In light of the dishonesty, I chose to stop working with Palmer Group. I was deeply disappointed as they had come with such high recommendations from others.
I will not work with them in the future because, sadly, I do not trust them.
I sincerely hope that this was some sort of a one-off, fluke as I would shudder to think this is just another day in the world of business at Palmer Group. I wish everyone great success with them should you choose to work with them. I, unfortunately, will not be.
Great tips on getting the job (what to say, etc.), seemed to be very caring, provided lunch for us a couple of times.
Found it necessary to lie to me. Unethical at best. Felt like I'd been thrown under the bus. Then, for all intents and purposes, they basically dropped me. I was still listed on their roster, but no interviews or other offers ever came.
