Okay, *deep breath* this might be a little long but I depend on Yelp a lot, so I'd like to help others find reputable places as well...I left NYC for San Fran on Halloween and tried to figure out my next steps for a few days. I'd been a temp before on the East Coast, but I hated how inconsistent things were...I wasn't expecting much, but I still set up interviews with a couple of agencies right away. I met with Beverly and Tom (and was later introduced to Debra...she has SUCH a fun personality) and Tom tested my comp skills, while Beverly discussed my needs/wants in a position. They were all so laid back and pleasant...it's a small office and I don't think they take on just anyone as a candidate, they seem sort of particular (in a good way) since they tend to place at smaller companies.I randomly blurted out that I might like to try a law firm (my mother has been pushing law school since forever). I met with them on Tuesday, and was contacted with a placement at a law firm on Friday lol just my luck, I was over the moon. The firm was small and really felt like a family. Monroe Personnel/Temptime even checked on me regularly after I started to see if it was a good fit and ask if I needed anything. I believe they do a lot of placements within the Financial District/SoMa area, so that makes for a good commute if you're coming from the East Bay. I'd kinda lost all faith in temp agencies before Monroe/Temptime. They have a really great team and I'd refer them to any solid candidate/new transplant looking for work in a flash.Oh, the law office is like, less than a 10min walk from TempTime and Beverly brought over this wonderful chocolate, pretzel, caramel, Oreo cookie bar/brittle type stuff from Trader Joe's for Christmas. It's things like that that really set TempTime apart!
I’m a career-changer with an extensive resumé containing work experiences in various industries—from art gallery to academia. However, the last time I’d held an office job was in the era when the IBM Selectric typewriter and Rolodex was standard technology!Monroe/Temptime knew what to do! After a comprehensive interview with to determine my “transferable skills,” Monroe/Temptime sent me on assignment to one of their longterm client companies—with terrific success!Firstly, having sent many temp workers to this company over the years, Monroe understood the company culture. And then, having made a detailed study of my skills and experiences, the Monroe/Temptime people used their creativity—making my employer and myself very happy indeed!
