Westaff Employee

"I was placed in a factory, where I wasn't getting 40 hrs. I called Westaff and told them I wanted to move to a different job where I'd be able to get 50+ hrs. I already had one in mind that was in fact hiring thru Westaff. I contacted that other job, and they wanted me. Westaff told me they wouldn't move me from that job assignment. I then specifically asked them, "If I quit this job, will you place me in a different one?" They told me yes... so I quit. At that point, they told me because I quit that job, they aren't going to employ me anymore. They are liars and misleading... I will NEVER work for them again, or would I recommend anyone else to."

IT Technician

"WeStaff NOLA is a temporary staffing agency that has a division in Audio Visual and IT installations. Our labour coordinator is amazing at her job and tries (rarely fails) to get her skilled technicians as much work as possible and ensures fair professional practice from both client and tech team. I only mark average on most of the query because the only downfall is that the temp work doesn't really allow time to absorb the lessons on the the job so whatever is learned may be quickly forgotten."
