Ok so I was out of work for a little while and decided to go through an Employment agency to get a job. I went through Adecco Employment Services in Sterling Virginia. They had me come in and take pre-employment tests (ie, typing tests, math, and word solving tests). Anyway I finished everything and they had put me on an assignment that day, working with Verizon Wireless. So I started going to work the following week. Nothing was wrong then. So I worked under Adecco for about two months and everything was fine and dandy. In the third month I was working for them they started to get more and more distant with talking to me about every week and I started not being able to get in touch with anyone. Joanna was my employment seeker. So one day I got online to log my hours into their database so I could get paid, like I have done for the past couple of months. I would log on but I couldn't log my hours in. I just thought it was a mistake and it would work it self out. So I continued to work on the schedule that Verizon put me on for an entire week without logging my hours online. Fortunatly I had them written down in a ledger at my house for a backup. I finally got fed up with not being able to log my hours in and I called AGAIN for the 30th time that week and finally getting intouch with Joanna. She told me I was taken off the assignment a full week ago and had failed to contact me to tell me. So basically I was working for free. They had said that I had lied on my application and said I said NO to any felonys. I have only been convicted of minor traffic infractions which were taken care of and dismissed through court. Anyway I remember vividly that the application had only said felony's NO misdemeanors were anywhere on the application. So they had let me go without telling me anything. I even went in with court papers stating that the infractions were dismissed. They came up with this "false" application where they "changed" the question. I had the original document stating the Felony only question. So they had wrongfully terminated me for no reason. They are a HORRIBLE company to go through. I was very close to getting a lawyer and pressing charges on them for wrongful termination. I finally threatened them by getting a lawyer and they finally paid me for the hours that I couldn't log in for.
I advise DO NOT go through this company, they are scammers!!! They lure you in and then lie to you, so they don't have to pay you!
