sniper (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 October 2017
working at adecco in TO is the worst. The supervisors Are fake say hi and smile to you while they let you go of the job the next day. I got moved into a different department and asked if I’m staying in the new spot or am I moving back upstairs where there is work!!!, because there was nothing to do downstairs?!¿ and the supervisor said permanently downstairs and I said ok. and here’s a tip, if the supervisors put u in a place where there’s no work they will fire you because you’re no use of you working at adecco anymore. They won’t even tell you that you’re being let go and if you ask why they have no reason, it’s sad that a few people got let go during the holidays as well.
Great place to work if you're looking for temporary work
Data Entry/Customer Service & Supervisor (Current Employee) – Saint John, NB – 4 October 2017
I love working for Adecco, but not that it's not a great place if you're looking for permanent placement without relocating for the job. However, the people in the office are really nice & will answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Great people to work with
You don't know until pretty much the last moment when your contract will end.
Dishwasher/Kitchen Helper (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 October 2017
I haven't done much work with the company, but from the work I have done I learned two things. First is that the service from Adecco to their employees can be exemplary. My contact was answering emails I sent well after midnight within fifteen minutes of them being sent. She was open, communicative, and helpful. Second is that the groups hiring Adecco are not necessarily as enjoyable. The group to which I was assigned was threatening my employment within the first three days in retaliation for voicing concerns about labour standards. It went downhill from there. However, I feel that this should hardly be considered damning towards Adecco themselves. Overall, they are a fine company. I think I just got unlucky.

I think the training session I had while working for Adecco was superb. They taught me both technical and managerial skills. The supervisors were very kind and supportive. I think working there opened a new window in fornt of me
Amazon Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – MAN 1 – 15 September 2017
Meeting targets was hard,sometimes near impossible when stowing due to full pods & people cherry picking smaller items.
Picking is much easier & after a few nights doing it you can easily meet your targets.
Moneys good on nightshift,but job security is not the best,especially over the Christmas period when at anypoint during the night your manager could come & tell you you`ve lost your job,something that thankfully never happened to me
Decent Money on nights, only working 4 nights out of 7, no rotating shifts
Clean Room Operator (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 September 2017
Adecco were very good at finding me jobs that were temporary, seasonal type jobs. As I took on more jobs, the caliber of the job offers increased. My last posting with Adecco turned out to be a two year placement.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 30 August 2017
I worked as reception/clerical through a temp agency that would send me to offices that needed help when someone got sick or took holiday ---- I worked many years in this capacity - as office fill in, some were contract jobs that I was asked to return to, others were short 3 day to 1 week placements. Doing everything from making coffee to photocopy and collate 30 page presentations, to answering phones and taking messages, booking appointments, sending and receiving mail and deliveries, typing, filing, faxing.... Smiling and pleasantly greeting customers
Administration, Clerical and Reception (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 26 August 2017
My first contact was incredible. They were calling me consistently with many opportunities then they left the company and my new contact doesn't call at all. I am finding I need to check-in to find any opportunities. Very frustrating.
