This agency seemed to have a lot of work for me when temping was not too steady with other agencies. Everyone at this agency seemed to be pretty nice except for one. He is I believe the manager or supervisor or whatever there and if you could somehow not deal with him you'll be okay. If, however, you do unfortunately have to deal with him - BEWARE!!!! If your good he will expect you to work exclusively for Quantum. And if you dare to work for another agency He will be really nasty and obnoxious and tell you "never to call this agency again"!!!!! That's what happened to me. I think he had a lot of nerve to say that to me after all how many temps out there are stupid enough not to have more than one agency. In fact, you should have at least six you can use. From my experience, when I use an agency and they send me to a client and they like me they keep sending me to that same client. I like to have some variety especially if I don't like that particular client or if I am looking for a permanent job and want to shop around.
