This was one of the worst places I went to. When I went and I wallked in they we're really helpful, ( I worked with a nicole) and I got sent out on an assignment within the first few days, the first assignment was alright and it lasted two days.

The second one was for the same company, but the guy I worked (Steve D'Allesandro) for was terrible. I had never met someone so anal in my life, but I put up with it, finally got to the point where he expected me to know software he didn't even know (some construction software) anyhow he called Nicole and told her my computer skills we're light (A lie... I know Quark, Illustrator, Photoshop, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, Go Live Cyber Studio, Claris Works and File Maker Pro) not that I had to use these for this assignment I don't do graphics professionally so I don't go to DTP assignments. But he lied on me, and than had the nerve to tell me that he was getting rid of me, after he started interviewing others. I told him I was a temp worker and it was cool.

The bad part is that Nicole never gave me another assignment, though I called her quite a few times.

Sign up with A.T. Temps they're alot more helpful and cooperative.
