The Red Guide to Temp Agencies

Review Form

If you get work with one of these agencies, or any other, please send me a review. Even if you feel you have nothing to add to a review, it would be helpful for statistical purposes. I eventually hope to publish a list of the ten best-liked and ten least-liked agencies, and I'll need as many responses as possible to make sure that it's fair. It will help if you use the following form in your review.
