I registered with this agency early 2003. They had lots of glowing ads in the newspaper and when I met with Liz Crochitto I got an overall positive impression. The receptionist and rest of the staff was very helpful. I kept calling weekly, religiously, for over 3 months then was assigned to Alix Bier as Liz was no longer there. I stopped calling as they didn't ahve any work. Alix called me about April and gave me a pep talk, telling me about how great my test results were and that my references checked out very well.

I called the next week to give her my status and she acted like she didn't know me from Adam and kept asking me to refresh her memory. I called several more times and she was frazzled, harried and rushed.

I was continually put on hold and waited for her to come back each time and I had to repeat my status and what I was looking for.

They were slow she kept telling me. OK, so much for the pep talk.

My rating is neutral. They are probably as negatively affected as other agencies during this recession of 2003.

But the overall rushing when I called left me feeling like this was useless and I gave up calling them. After a point it doesn't mean anything and the pep talk sounds hollow in retrospect.
