Clerk II (Former Employee), Downtown Edmonton – February 18, 2014
Pros: flexible hours: 8 to 4 became 7:30 to 3:30 with 1/2 hour lunch
Cons: that i had to leave after 3 months
Originally, this was a 2-month temporary assignment with the City of Edmonton Law Branch, which got extended into 3 months (the maximum allowed by the union).
I learned how to enter data to open a file in iVos (data base) and modifying it as needed. Also created the physical files to match. Provided relief to receptionist as needed. Co-workers were – more... a great bunch to work with. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I was able to improve the condition of the files in Expropriation. I also like the project I did to organize all the information a lawyer had on the Downtown Arena.
The hardest part of the job was finding enough work to do, especially the first month. The second and the third month I started to work on the Expropriation files.
Part of the time, we had a rush job for photocopying 8 or 9 copies of documents. Other scanning and photocopying as needed. – less

hit or miss, jobs come jobs go. what I learned is to never give up there is always a job out there I just have to apply myself and go get it. management are some of the hardest working people some of the most dedicated to there employees, to help you find a job. the hardest part is not knowing if I'm going to work today. the most enjoyable is when I – more... do find a job. – less

Temp. Employee (Former Employee), Morristown, TN – January 14, 2014
They do try, but I think they could do a lot more with helping others. They should improve on there communication skills as well as when you call and ask for things, they always say they will mail it but have still yet to receive stuff as well as my last pay check.

Front Office Coordinator (Former Employee), Metairie, LA – January 13, 2014
A typical day at work wasn't to bad, learned a lot and meet a variety of different people. I learned how to do account receivables, management was poor, didn't pay enough for the job that I was given. Co-workers were amazing and still talk to them. The hardest part was leaving the job because i loved the people i dealth with on a daily basis. The most – more... enjoyable part of meeting new people. – less
Most unprofessional staffing agency I have ever come across. The last time I dealt with this agency, I had to wait 3 weeks to get all of my check. The staff is not sensitive or overtly concerned about the workers. In order to get my last check, I basically had to threaten them that I was going to report them to all them government agencies and complain. – more... Even with the threats, it still took them a while to do the right thing, aka give me my money for working. They lie to you, if you need help the lead manager is never in the office to "help". Not worth your time going with this agency for sure! – less
Temporary Worker (Current Employee), Racine, WI – January 13, 2014
Pros: work with you finding work
Cons: you never know if they will find anything.
I worked at Cree for a few months. They have been unable to find me a job since that met the criteria I gave them. Hardest part of the job is waiting for a call for work. They do their best to get you a job that will work in your time schedule and work type.
Front Office Coordinator (Former Employee), Gainesville, GA – January 10, 2014
Cons: catty co-workers, negativity
A typical day at work involved getting on the internet and recruiting people to come in and apply for jobs that we didn't have. I learned that staffing is a terrible environment to work in. The management at this company was non-existent. The "office manager" maybe showed her face at the office once a month. The coworkers were all very sassy, and they – more... all came to work with a terrible attitude. The hardest part of the job was staying upbeat when all you hear is negativity. The only enjoyable part of this job was when you put someone to work who was truly grateful for the opportunity. – less
