Though this agency was "cleaner" than others I have encountered, the office was a mess in regards to organization. When I arrived, I was asked to fill out a few forms and be seated. I was also told that the computers were down. Anyhow, I sat there for about 45 minutes before an "agent" actually spoke with me. There were also about 5 people waiting there and they seemed equally frustrated at the amount of time spent waiting. I realize that waiting is often an inescapabale circumstance, but there were only 5 other people there, not 500. Also, the receptionist was in a world of her own and often answered the phone in a very rude and unprofessional manner. At any rate, upon meeting the agent, I was basically asked what I was looking for. There was no in-depth interview. After being told of a possible temp-to-perm position, I ended up spending an entire week calling the agency at least three times a day to get follow-up information. Even after I would leave a message, I still had to continue calling because the agency would not return my call. This seems to be another one of those agencies that somehow manages through thrive while trating their prospective temps as lepers.
