    Salary is an issue

    I have been working at Accountemps

    Pros

    Working for Accountemps is great as far as the people being there to support you but the salary is insulting. In these poor economic times, people have no choice and I believe the temp agencies know it.

    Cons

    Again, the compensation is actually insulting to me. I do believe people are being taken advantage of in these economic times. If you are offered something, anything, you have to take it.

    I worked at Accountemps full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, offering a professional service that is value-driven and easy to sell.

    Cons

    10.5 hour days with no lunch while we sell "work/life balance" to clients. Base pay is so low (with no commission guarantee) that true professionals and family people (anyone other than a recent college grad) can't afford to take it. It takes over a year to make real money. Hence there is a ton of turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some type of commission guarantee for the first 9-12 months so you can get high-end people who will stay.
