Accountant (Ancien employé) – Mississauga, ON – 8 février 2018
Was hired on the fact that its a temporary placement with the potential of leading into a permanent. I quit a secure job I had and declined two interviews. Within the first 30 minutes of my first day in the new job I was told by the company I was assigned to work for that the position was actually offered to someone a week ago and they just need someone to cover until this person starts, maybe two days or one week at maximum. By the end of the day, I was called to the controller office to be told thank you for your service we don't need you anymore. People have families to support so be upfront from the beginning!
Senior Accountant / Interim Controller (Ancien employé) – Calgary, AB – 2 juin 2019
Working with Accountemps means that you'll likely be able to find something pretty quickly, but mostly for only the short term (a few weeks or months). The problem comes when a good company wants to keep you, but they are stuck as hiring you permanently would cost them substantially more than if they took their time to find another employee without an agency representing them. When economy is tougher, it is highly unlikely you'll end up serving the company for longer than a few months and then end up training a replacement they find for half the amount they pay the agency. The benefit though is that you can rely on pretty steady pay, just keep in mind that it shouldn't be a long term plan if you ever want benefits such as vacation time (paid out on each paycheck), medical plan, or rrsp matching.
Accounts Receivable Specialist (Employé actuel) – Vancouver, BC – 14 janvier 2019
I get to review my accounts receivable skills. They said to send email form time to time but they never reply. Maybe they are just busy. still thankful though. As a temporary employee you are not provided a secure benefit. Advisable for starters who would want to gain experience.
