Started working: June 1992

Stopped working: October 1992

Types of Jobs: Secreterial

Was this Typical: Yes.

Clients: Banks, communications companies, not-for-profits

Salary: $12-15 (not bad in '92)

Benefits: Comments: I had four or five short-term assignments from Leafstone, plus one that lasted about 5 months and could have become full-time if I'd been interested in staying on (I wasn't).

The short-term jobs were pretty standard (answer phones, type letters, etc). I did get to spend a day at VH1, which was pretty cool, and one day at the United Nations (not so cool).

The long-term assignment was great. It was a small not-for profit religious organization (they probably sent me because I was wearing a Star of David) and the people were wonderful. I was treated like a member of the team, not a temp. When I left (to take a fulltime job) they gave me a small party and a nice gift as a thank-you.

Overall, I think Leafstone is a much classier outfit than most temp places. I always recommend Leafstone to friends who are looking for temp work.
