At first, I thought this agency had potential. That changed fast. They were just like the others. They got me a job the same day that I registered. They told me on the phone that they had a long term position available that I may be interested in. When I arrived they changed everything and said it was just a l month project. I guess they felt that I wouldnt take the job if I knew it was only a month long. Then it turned out it was only for two weeks. They are not organized at all! When I tell them to keep my check at the office and I will pick it up, they mail it to my house, and vice-versa. It is ridiculous!! They only think about theirselves, and really dont care about your welfare. I am currently on a job from them, and I told them to find out if this had permanent possibilities ( they know I want something permanent! ). They never followed up on that! I had to find out for myself! Then it turns out this position will be ending eventually. This sucks! After all this, I would recommend that anyone looking for a job should not count on temp agencies for guidance.
