Last fall, there was practically NO work available-and the tiny amount that was seemed parcelled out by some unbelievably rude/malfunctioning temp agents.

But walking into BonTemps was another world. Larry (who no longer works there) engaged me in the most rollicking, irreverant, hilarious conversation that would have sustained me even if they hadn't been able to offer me work. (I mean, that guy needs to be in the movies). But they did, find me work that is, and I ended up with a great assignment that stretched into months and enabled me to stay in NY right when I had totally run out of money. ANYWAYS, Larry is not there anymore, as I said...and none of the other people are in any way nutty like him-but everyone who works there is still great. Jamie, Dave, and Lynn(?) are just very responsible, reliable, trustworthy, GOOD people. You will NOT be dehumanized working for Bon Temps, and even if they don't have work immediately because they are not a big, branched-out corporation they are highly recommended by me.
