    Former Employee - Branch Manager in Boston, MA (US)

    Pros

    I had an opportunity to assist some talented, yet misdirected, temporary employees use their talents to find full time work. Personally learned the type of manager I want to be.

    Cons

    Endless hours, constant changes in management, receiving calls from temps at crazy hours because the call center thought it was appropriate to give out my cell phone number

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to find a sales strategy and stick with it, at least for 6 months to a year so they can really evaluate if it is a failure or success before changing the strategy again.

    Acknowledge that there is a difference in selling labor city to city. The way you sell in New England is completely different than the Midwest.

    Pros

    Easy to start working, lots of diverse jobs offered.

    Cons

    Mostly manual labor. When I worked here it required one to show up at 5:00am in the office and wait 0-4+ hours before being assigned a job. They also will ask you to give others rides to the job site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more courteous to your employees.
