Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Things went well at first but now they are doing a poor job keeping me busy. The first company they farmed me out to used me as a workhorse and then dismissed me without even so much as a thank you.

Pros

The pay is fair

Cons

Not a stable income to support a family on.

Opportunity of a Lifetime

It has been the opportunity of a lifetime. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and I feel blessed to work with such a great group of people. To have leaders, mentors, and co-workers of this caliber is exceedingly rare, at least from my personal experience after over four decades in the workforce. Best of all, I get great satisfaction from my job. Helping people find work, start or continue a career, it adds something existential to the job. It isn't just a job... I get to help people too. I started out in the work force as an entry level construction laborer and, with no college degree, four decades later I have the kind of job I never dreamed was possible for someone like me. I get to help people see that possibility for themselves as well. There is more than one way to the corner office. All paths don't require a college degree and crushing student debt. I hope to have a very long career here and would recommend the company to anyone.

Pros

Career Opportunity, Commission based, Unlimited Earnings Potential, Continuing Education

They keep you busy

The only company that had work for me during covid and kept me busy. They made sure I had work even when another company laid all the temps off. The ladies in the office checked up on me to see how everything was going

Pros

Stayed working

Cons

No benefits

Unknowledgeable account managers

The account managers are overly casual until there's an issue. Most are young women who have never worked the industry they serve and will not comprehend the average tech issues that due arise and will likely place you to blame, so they won't lose customer relations. The worst part is while waiting for job placement you won't hear anything back from them for days and calling them will end with an attitude as if you're bothering that person. Unprofessional and emotionally driven responses. Come here if you are in need but don't expect the pay you deserve.

Pros

A job

Cons

The people

Job seekers rely on your experience.

Every work experience is unique. Let people know your thoughts on previous employers.

Very knowledgeable team that promotes success

I've worked with a lot of good technicians that TradeSTAR has hired and placed. I started with TradeSTAR in the field and was hired by the first company I worked for. They were always helpful and went above and beyond for their employees. I ended up becoming a client of TradeSTAR and still hire good technicians from them that want to learn a career. I owe my career to them and I'm glad they are helping our industry.

Pros

Training and good benefits.

Cons

Never had any issues with them.

It’s okay

Working here at TradeSTAR has been an experience. Very process driven and it’s difficult at times to grasp all of the working duties while having a million other things going on. Fun for now! Pay is good but the rest kind of sucks at time.

Decent company

Only good if you don't have anything else going on and need work. But if it's in the 4Q of the year so companies tend not to hire until 1Q of the year so have at it main goal if your at a company they laced you at that you like try to get on.

Takes forever to get thru interview process

It takes forever to get through the interview process. They are more concern about figuring out why they don't want you then want to hire you. I would recommend working with other temp agencies.

Better off finding something else.

Great if you like 1-2 week jobs and being changed out like socks. Not enough big companies trust Tradestar, so with little work going around they tend to send out their favorite temps. Pretty tough to land something steady, I never saw a temp to hire position come around. They make money by keeping you around and sending you out everywhere

Great if you need work between jobs.

TradeSTAR is great for if you're between jobs or have a hard time getting past turning your application in. Once they find a company for you to work for (whether it be a temporary or long-term job), they send you in for a formal interview. If you make a good impression, you get to work. Hopefully while you're there you'll make a good enough impression that the company will want to hire you directly. If not, or if it was just a temporary position and they weren't looking to hire in the first place, you finish the job then wait for TradeSTAR to set you up with another interview.

False Advertisement

They low ball you on the hourly rate it is not $18-23 hourly more like $17 or less if they could. Please stay away. I repeat don’t waste your gas.. like I did mines and my time. They advertise $18-23 to lure you in. There located off the feeder road near memorial city mall

Typical Temp agency

It's just your typical temp agency. They can get you work at a reasonable pace sometimes, but not all the time. The best part of working here is meeting new people and learning new things, but since being a temp, you can be let go from your current contract anytime

Pros

new learning expierences

Cons

Temp work
