Staff were friendly and there were many placements available. I was able to expand upon my resume and develop future employment contacts through these placements.


Friendly staff many placements

Bad Management, very micromanaged.

Good starting point for a HR grad, but you will burn out quickly. On call 24/7 and are expecting to answer if its 3am. Low pay for the stress and constant pressure from management.

Withholds vacation pay

Doesn't pay out vacation pay on each pay cheque. Requires you to directly contact them to collect your 4% accumulated vacation pay. Extremely shady practiceThey have never contacted me after obtaining a placement to check in on how things are going


Doesn't pay vacation pay. Doesn't contact you for updates

Good personnel

You are busy with email, faxes and calls for product knowledge, sales quotes and orders. Work with shipping to determine shipping costs, work with production for scheduling jobs. They are a placement agency so I did not actually work there.

Never a dull moment.

My placement was in a manufacturing plant. I worked in customer service. The people were amazing. They went out of their way to teach me. Nice balance of mental and physical activities.


I can prioritize my duties


most of my work came in the afternoon.

They fired an employee for having a doctors note for mental health illness !!! Lawsuit going their way!! Not acceptable at all.. and the lady that was dealing with the employee was very rude no compassion at all.. just rude.. and newsflash you can not fire someone with a doctors note especially no a days with mental health issues!! Can’t wait too see the outcome of this

General labor

depending on where you are sent, the intensity of labor depends. Most jobs included lifting over 50 pounds. The pay varies at each job, sometimes its good other times its not. Best thing about this job is you can choose what days you want to work and ones you choose not to. Weekly pay was nice too.

Great Place To Start

A good opportunity if you are looking out for a jumping off point in a recruitment career. The company preaches a team-oriented culture across the board, although on the branch level you may find yourself in limited company. Structured training is limited. Be prepared to hit the ground running.

Needs serious improvement

First things first, the pay is absolutely pathetic with this company - both internally and as a temp. Second, they want you to be available 24/7, 365 days a year, literally no work-life balance. They treat their employees terribly and they cannot keep Staffing Coordinators because of it. Only pro was the co-workers (NOT managers) were super nice, but this is the kinda company you get bad vibes from right away.


Colleagues are awesome


Low pay, no work-life balance, managers are terrible

Terrible Place

This "company" has no compassion what so ever! I was fired from my role as a staffing coordinator in ottawa after taking too many "sick days" when I was cremating my child, they even deducted hundreds off my salary because of these days, wont even give me my severance package, absolutely unorganized and waste of time they barely actually put anyone to work.

Badly managed. Falsifying ROE

While working for the company , they didn’t not return phone calls or emails most days. They tell you there is a lot of work but you sit for weeks and months. When there is no work and You ask for an ROE , they tell you you are not entitled to one because there is so much work. They submit an ROE saying you quit when you were laid off.


Weekly pay


Bad management. They do not return calls or emails. Submit incorrect ROE’s

Poor management

The Saint John branch has No loyalty to their clients., This company has a tendency to tell you they have lots of work, but they have you sit home and wait for weeks on end. Asking for an ROE they will refuse, do to them having to much work, and yet your still sitting home. If your lucky/not so lucky, to get an ROE from them it will say qut not shortage of work.this isn't me venting, this is an experience I've been witness too. Eight weeks of not working is ridiculous, was the work Advantage If there's so much!?! i will be writing a letter to the editor as well.




Dishonest, no loyalty, bad placement, mismanagement, etc...
