I have had a great experience all around with this agency. I am surprised that the other reviews are talking about the same agency I have been working with!

The interview process: Pretty run of the mill stuff. Take responsibility for stating what you are there for clearly, and you shouldn't have any trouble.

The pay: They offered me what I consider to be a very reasonable rate of pay ~ slightly higher than my last permanent position (however, I was working in a smaller market before).

The assignment: Granted, it was originally billed as a "2-Day" assignment, but when another temp abruptly quit, I had made a good impression and was able to move into her "long-term temp" position. The brokers I supported were fabulous! The permanent employees I work with treated me with respect and I've made many friends here. I also worked with several other temps some from CORE and some from other agencies. All of us from CORE share the opinion that they have treated us well.

Problems: None. Initially, I had some trouble getting paid on time, but once I called and spoke with payroll, I clued into the fact that I was not following procedure. I suspect anyone having difficulty getting paid isn't following procedure correctly. It's not really that it's confusing or anything.

My counselor: A great person to work with ~ and so are the several other people I've spoken with when I've called in for one reason or another.

Would I recommend them: Yes, and I have. Both people I've recommended were placed shortly after their initial meeting with CORE and share my sentiments.

They have not been independently verified, so there is nothing to stop someone from posting a pack of lies. Some agencies with great reviews may be really bad, and some agencies with bad reviews may be really great. As with everything online, be careful and don't believe everything you read.
