"Adecco is a fairly decent staffing agency. I enjoyed my time with the company for the most part. I feel communication is definitely something that needs to improve. My main complaint on that topic is the fact that when the company that I was on assignment for decided to end my contract, I was never notified. I went to work as normal and found that I apparently didn't have access to the building. I went to security to ask why, where I was handed a box of my belongings and nothing else. HOURS later, I was finally contacted by my recruiter who actually asked me if I was at work. Definitely not very professional in my opinion."

"Adecco is a good organization to get your foot in the door and progress as a recruiter. They value loyalty. I say this because the compensation is lower for a more experienced recruiter. Other than that, they are a company who gives you the tools you need to do your job."

"I worked for Adecco for a short period of time but I managed to be very close to their employees for years. Certain locations vary but I would say my location was a decent one to work for. They did handle things with urgency if there were any issues with pay or hours. They had a very decent training process that wasn't too hard to understand as long as you paid attention. Overall, a wonderful company to work for."

"Adecco overall has a fantastic work culture and provides a fair amount of benefits to employees. The work is straightforward and not much room for error or questioning how something should be done. What Adecco lacks is fair compensation based on the current market in comparable roles in other companies."

"The job was good. I had the privilege to learn how to operate a forklift and a scissor-lift. I got along with my coworkers just fine and helped my supervisor solved problems. I had 2 breaks and a lunch and my day was done. The con was the distance of the job."

"Working for the company that I was placed in through Adecco has been a blast, I've learned so much and I love the people I work with. However, Adecco themselves seem to treat their employees more like robots and not humans. No raise, no paid PTO, no paid holidays, it's upsetting."

"They don't even get 1 star, and get 0 stars from me, being these people are a total FRAUD and technically should be looked into for discrimination. They do not complete any real background checks, I was advised of this by the "Bay Area Regional Operations Manager." I was given an offer by a company of which I will leave undisclosed, because they are great, and have been since I interviewed, it's just unfortunate that they are dependent on an agency to hire and handle their payroll and Adecco isn't even honest upfront, being that they advise the companies that they do complete a background check and that would be a lie based on the info I have since obtained after waiting for clearance to begin the job I was given an offer for. They said they will not be able to hire me until 2018 and my case is currently 5 yrs old and so far in my past, and has nothing to do with the type of work involved, and basically, they don't do any actual background check and I found this out as I moved forward onto pursuing my legal rights in regards to being employed and having a criminal background now. So I asked for a copy of my report and the screening agencies info to reference shall I have a dispute, and since they were pretty much rescinding the offer I had been given by the company direct. The response was they don't go through any third party, they specifically go off the details we state in the questionnaire, and the whole time I and the company itself is waiting under the impression that they are running a background check... and only to say at the end of the day, why be honest with a company that has trick questions for you, like the need for a job is a joke, and for several days when the company is ready for you to start and only to go off of the information I put, making sure I was honest and the details matched."

Consultant
in Horsham, PA

"I worked as a Consultant for Adecco for the last year and seven months. I never received any raise during that time, today I asked for a small raise for the last few months of my contract, they told me NO raise. They already made a huge amount of money off my labor during my contract by taking 30% of what they were billing me out as. They are as greedy and heartless as they come, stay away. They offer HORRIBLE health insurance and don't give you any paid time off, they also have a bonus plan which is impossible to achieve unless you work 8 hours everyday for a year, good luck with that!"

"Want to have some fun? Ask them if you are qualified for the service bonus as promised in the employee handbook. They promise a service bonus but don't deliver. I have never worked for a contracting company with such poor treatment of employees (in 30 + years)."
