RECEPTIONIST/ASSISTANT (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – April 6, 2016
Pros: flexibile hours
Cons: can be hard to adjust to new environments quickly
I spent time working at Robert Half through OfficeTeam when I took a year off from university and had a great experience with them. There isn't really a "typical day" because you are often at one office for a day and another the next. But, in my experience I primarily worked in offices as an assistant or receptionist. These gigs were anywhere from 1 day to 2 months long and the pay was okay, typically $14-16/hour, but in some cases I recieved over-time pay which was great. They also pay you every week which is something I liked! If the recuiter calls you with a job that you are not interested in, they are typically fine with you turning it down (I did this for some opportunities that were only for a day) so it has flexibility. Overall, I would reccommend OfficeTeam to anyone who is in between jobs and wants to gain administrative experience!
Staffing Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – February 23, 2016
Pros: Vacation and Benefits, training
Cons: Difficult market
Calls in the morning meetings in the afternoon. Learned to conduct professional meetings and make cold-calls. Great mentoring but miscommunication from top to bottom of organization. Fantastic colleagues. Soliciting and filling jobs is challenging, very competitive and saturated market. Working together with colleague was very enjoyable.
Office Administrator (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – January 26, 2016
Pros: Learning different ways companies run
Cons: Not being a stable Job
I was a temp worker for this company for a about one year. In that time I work with different companies working administrative and data enter roles through out the city of Toronto. This was a stepping stone for my Administrative duties into Scotiabank. They gave me a lot of opportunity to learn on contract basis and with our them I would not have some of the skills that I have today.
Great opportunity and a great place to move forward in the business.

Staffing Manager (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MB – November 19, 2015
I enjoyed the position and the people I worked with. I learned a ton from this company. Management was supportive and let us have enough free reign to get our jobs done. I found compensation a little low and didn't agree with some of the strategic decisions that the management took.
Overall good place to work if you enjoy metric based work.
