Initial phone screen from set questions to ascertain if potentially "placeable". If answers clearly & intelligently we schedule an interview.

Then they are interviewed; we review any current opennings that potentially match up.

Agency Policies and Priorities:

Distinctive aspects of the agency:
Honesty & Ethics above all with clients and candidates. We live by "Our reputation is our stock in trade" and work at "Partnering" with the candidate and the client.

Role of the temp agency:
We are a very underrated and under appreciated essential Bridge in the Labor Force.

The five most important characteristics for a temp:
Speech: Articulate, clear,no language comprehension barriers Personality: Honest,dependable,enthusiastic,flexible team player. Appearance:Neat, well groomed, dressed appropriately

Advice for prospective temps:
Do NOT judge all Temp agencies by another experience. Remember we are only able to truly make the right match if you are honest with us. Be detailed and do be persistant.

Aiding temps in finding permanent work:
Many of our placements are strictly Perm-Direct Hires. But many others are Temp to Perm. We know this up front and tell the candidates up front the approximate length.

Percentage of temps who found permanent work last year
(a) at client firms: 40%
(b) in other firms: 30%

Other comments:
I found your site because I am looking at competitors sites to revamp mine. This was purely an accident. I was highly disappointed reading the majority of these negative reviews. I see no recent postings so I guess few people know about your site. Too bad for the "good guys". As owner of a boutique staffing firm, whose main goal is to help people, I wish Temp agencies as a whole were better viewed. Companys who under-pay temps and thus charge clients "no fee"-like Essex should be run out of business. They truly ruin the industry for the rest of us.

Note that all reviews are individual contributions and do not represent the opinion of the site administrator. They have not been independently verified, so there is nothing to stop someone from posting a pack of lies. Some agencies with great reviews may be really bad, and some agencies with bad reviews may be really great. As with everything online, be careful and don't believe everything you read.
