I've been using Accountemps and Robert Half International for over 10 years. I've had issues in the past, but nothing that amounts to my recent encounters.
For over a year now I've been applying for jobs in the Canton and Akron locations. I've applied for jobs via the internet, email and phone...all of which went unanswered. But, just to humor me I would get calls about jobs miles away from home and hours of traveling. So, I informed them "AGAIN" that I don't have a car and would like to apply for a job in the local area. Finally, there was a break through in the job market after a long drought. I thought for sure I would get a descent paying job....finally. I went on an overhaul of apply for jobs and calling to be considered for the various positions.
I saw many jobs posted to the internet through various job posting sites. I've also called and emailed to apply for jobs almost every week for over a year now. The many voicemails I left went unnoticed and unreturned. There was a lack of professionalism at these two office locations, and I decided to make a complaint.
The same day...within the same hour...that I called corporate, I received a phone call....they had a job for me. I was told it was in my local area, but I would have to travel a distance for the interview...only.
I was offered the job right on the spot, but had to turn it down when I learned the job was located outside my local traveling area...(I guess Accountemps didn't expect them to offer me the job) and without a car I would have to walk 8 miles (2.5 hours) to get to work every morning and again in the evening to get home.
I later found out that the Accountemps representative falsified information because she had prior knowledge of where the job was located and only wanted to quite my complaint. Unfortunately, I called to complain about the sick scheme; however, corporate didn't resolve the issue. Instead, after many complaints I was told that they would not be a resource to me in helping me finding a job.
Long story short....the Accountemps offices in Akron/Canton, Ohio never wanted to find me a job....I'm not sure why, but I have reason to believe it's because I'm not from Ohio.
