I was a Staffing Consultant at Adecco in Phoenix, Arizona, for over a year and a half, and if you are looking for work, do not waste your time with this company!
Adecco abides by a "policy" of bringing as many applicants in as possible in order to meet weekly production goals. They have no intention of ever placing you! The management is horrible, and even worse, there is no policy regarding provision of "Customer Service". Most of the recruiters will not take your calls, return messages, and are not on your side, only their client's side. In addition, these same recruiters will make up lies by saying they have "no jobs available that match your skill set".
One of the worst examples I can provide is in regards to my boyfriend, who I placed on an assignment with Charles Schwab. I will call him John.
John worked for Charles Schwab for almost a year, but still had not been hired on permanently as Schwab was in the midst of a hiring freeze. To give you some background information, however, on July 16, 2008, I was fired for allegedly falsifying a PDF file. Everyone knows Adobe Acrobat was created to protect documents, so as you are aware, it is impossible to alter any information. Keep in mind, my Branch Manager at the time hated me, because I believed in "quality, not quantity", and did not want to bring applicants in to waste their time, etcetera. When she fired me, she refused to show me this supposed falsified document as well.
Back to my example, one week later, my boyfriend was arriving to work and his badge didn't work. At that moment he received a call from the Onsite at Schwab stating he had been fired from Adecco for poor quality of work. POOR QUALITY OF WORK!?! John was the team lead in his department, and was the only employee who had security access to various programs at Schwab. In addition, his manager had given him promotions as well! Half way through the day, John's manager at Schwab asked several employees why John had not shown up to work.
HE HAD NO IDEA ADECCO FIRED HIM, because John's manager had NOT REQUESTED his employment be terminated. ADECCO FIRED JOHN BECAUSE OF ME!!!
In short, stay FAR, FAR AWAY from Adecco!!!
