This agency seemed o.k. when I interviewed and got tested. They gave me a 2 month assingment which was supposed to be an Admin position, however all I did was sort resumes all day long!!!! They also promised me $15 an hour, however the day before starting my assignment they reduced my salary to $14 an hour.

After beign there for 4 days and realizing that my only purpose in that small medical office was to sort out hundreds and hundreds of resumes, I decided I no longer wanted to continue my assignment. I called the agency and told my agent I no longer wanted the assignment and to my surprise she screamed at me and rudely hung up on me. When I tried calling back I asked to speak to my agent again I was transferred to another rep who told me to shut up and hung up on me. Can you believe it???

Finally I called again and asked to speak to an HR Rep and when I was transferred to the rep, the rep already knew who I was and began to insult me by saying I should not have quit my assignment and then she began to insult my education and work experience. Needless to say I was extremely mad!! All I wanted was to speak to someone to explain to them that I wanted to be paid for the days I worked and then be on my way.

This is the most unprofessional staff Ihave ever dealt with. Please do yourself the favor and don't ever go here. By the way I finally got paid two weeks later after I threatened to file a law suit.!!!
