A few friends work through ASA and I needed work so I decided to give them a try. I've worked in the offices of two other New York temp agencies so I know the protocol.. Although, I can honestly say that I have NEVER been treated so unprofessionally by anyone in my entire life as I was by the employees at the front desk. They were rude, obnoxious, far from helpful and the worst was that they simply let me sit there for a total of about 2 hours doing basically nothing. experience. I put myself on their typing tests after being told to "go over there and take some tests" by a sneering receptionist. Then, as I was taking my tests, Miriam came over and told me that she was leaving and that I would have to come back tomorrow. When I asked what time, she just said.." doesn't matter", and at that moment I decided that there was absolutely no way I was going to waste another moment in that ridiculous and unhelpful environment.
