          Temporary Agencies’ Pros and Cons
In a struggling economy where people are eagerly seeking employment, signing on with         Special
                                                                                                    Points o
a temporary agency is a way to keep money coming in while seeking permanent employ-                          f
ment. Temporary work may also be suitable for students or retirees who do not need
for a full-time job. Working for a temporary agencies offers a variety of pros and             Tempor

No Searching (Pro)
Temporary agencies find the work assignments for you, which saves you the time and effort of having to
contact employers yourself. Typically, you will fill out an application at the agency as well as complete an inter-
view process that may include skills testing. When the agency receives a job that fits your skills, someone from
the agency will contact you.

Flexibility (Pro)
Working with a temporary agency allows for a good deal of flexibility. You are not obligated to accept an as-
signment, and the agency will likely work with you to find assignments that fit your schedule. For example, if
you're a student who takes classes in the morning, the agency will attempt to locate jobs for you that require
evening or weekend hours.

Permanent Employment (Pro)
If you're seeking a permanent job, a temporary position can serve as springboard to a new career. Some tempo-
rary jobs are "temp-to-hire," meaning that if the company likes your work they will offer you a full-time posi-
tion after a probationary period or when a position becomes available. You may also develop contacts on the
temporary job that can lead to a full-time position down the road

Dysfunctional Work Environment (Con)
Sometimes, a temporary position is a new position, designed to fill a short-term need, such as working on a spe-
cial project. As a result, the company may not provide adequate training or have the proper organizational
structure in place. The work environment may be chaotic, and supervision may be poor or non-existent. Tempo-
rary workers may not be treated with the same respect as permanent staff

Low Pay (Con)
Temporary positions may offer low pay, because the temporary agency takes a cut from the fee it receives
from the employer. In addition, benefits such as sick time, vacation and insurance are usually not available un-
less the employer decides to offer you a full-time position.

Short Notice (Con)
In some instances, temporary agencies give little notice as to the availability of a job. This means that if you
are unavailable due to a prior commitment, you may need to turn down an assignment at a time when you could
use the money. You may get a phone call very early in the morning, asking you to start an assignment that same
