Low salaries compared to market and no good benefits. Job security is poor, people get fired left and right. The only good thing is work from home, otherwise it’s not great

Good place to work

Great place to start your career. Training is minimal but you can learn on the job. Lots of exposure to different projects can lead to quick advancement.

Good place to work

The interview process was fairly simple, go in and fill out some forms and then complete an interview with one of the staffing coordinators. They were able to find me suitable employment within less than a week which was great. Hoping to be hired fulltime but in the meantime have had no issues with Advantage

Unfortunately they have big turn over in the Staffing Coordinator position

A heavy workload for the Staffing Coordinator.Review all resumes, to see who is qualified for open positions. Print all resumes, call potential candidates, screening questions; then schedule into the office for registration.Scan all documents, add new employees, and input all information into Computer. Our initial Manager was fantastic, I loved her management style. Unfortunately, the manager left the company before we were fully trained.The hardest part of the job was the amount of daily workload. Many times I came into the office early and also worked late. As well the goals for the office to meet was unrealistic.I don't know how they think someone else can fill all orders with qualified candidates when no qualified candidates apply?


Only 2 employees working in office, we were hired together and thus learned together.


High expectations on Staffing Coordinator, to fill all open orders when no qualified canadines applied, even Companies had job ads and they were not being filled.

One of the worst places I've ever worked.

This was one of the worst places I have ever worked. First of all, management LOVES to micro-manage - insisting you cc them on every single email you send. Secondly, there is an unwritten rule that you will work through your lunch break, which is only 30 minutes in a 9 hour work day. You are expected to be on call at all hours of the day/ night - there is NO work-life balance. For the amount of effort you're expected to put in, you receive very little pay and the benefit package was also terrible. If this is the type of job you'd like to build your career on, strongly consider working for another company.

It is sometimes unfortunate that these comments are posted without context or lack of reference to overall performance. We appreciate your view of the role, however there are some great inaccuracies. We hope that you are in a better place for you at this time, and wish you all the best.

Communicative, kind, professional

Very communicative staff, you are never left in the dark throughout the process. Multiple jobs, good pay. Was able to find a placement for me quick. Enjoying working with them.

Thank you for the comments we appreciate it. It is a tough market right now, and we try to do our very best for candidates and our clients.

Professional staff and efficient process

I worked with Alternative Human Resources which is part of the group. The staff were professional and the process was efficient. I was hired on before my 3 month probationary period because the company I work for wanted to hire me. There is some initial paperwork that needs to be filled out and an in person interview but overall seamless process. Thanks!


Efficient, Professional, Hired on quick

Thanks for the comments and overview of your experience with our company, and our AHR office in Burlington, Ontario. We hope you are doing well, take care.

Quick turnaround, good work, fair pay

I worked with Advantage Personnel and am writing this review 2 months after I stopped working with them as I got hired by their client full-time. It was a quick turnaround time from the initial interview to starting work, and I ended up getting hired on before the typical probationary period. The work is good and the pay is fair and on par with other companies in the area. I would recommend Advantage to anyone who's looking for work. I had a great experience.


Got hired before 3 months full-time by client, fair pay

Awesome company

I've worked with Advantage Personnel for just over a year now at one of their clients. The onboarding process was seamless and although there is some paperwork to fill out in the beginning, it is not any more than any other employer. I'm just in the process of being transferred over as a full-time employee and am very thankful for Advantage!

Needed work, limited assignments

They were able to provide limited work from time to time, lots of dry spells which was not beneficial for me. Lots of promises not fulfilled. My main placement location would like to hire me, but can’t as they don’t want to pay Advantage their recruitment fee. Would not recommend working for this agency.

Unprofessional and time consuming.

Very unprofessional to work with. The Saint John office does not pay what they advertise. They take a lot of time to get back to you even after you have gone in and filled out piles of paperwork.
