Prior to working with Access, had you worked with other staffing agencies in
the past? If so, what was your experience with them? Yes, I worked
with others briefly and found them unimpressive. Because you’re sort of the quick
replaceable "body in the chair" with most agencies. They’re not really looking to
build a relationship; they're just looking to fill spots.
What was your employment situation at the time you began working with Access
Staffing? I had just left a position, and the Access Creative recruiter
solicited me because she had my resume from a ways back.
How did you first come to work with us? A couple years ago, a different
Access recruiter had worked with me, and I had made it to the final round of some
interviews. I had reached out to you guys over the years, especially as the economy
started to go south. And when the creative recruiter rang me up, the position she
was looking to fill was a nice fit with where I am in my career.
Can you describe the process you went through at Access, and what the time frame
was from when you first spoke with us to the time you were placed?
It was a really quick turnaround. The recruiter called me on a Tuesday. I had a
screening call with the client the following Saturday morning, and they made an
agreement the following week. All over, it was less than a ten-day turnaround.
What do you think were the benefits of securing a position through Access Staffing?
You have insight into the clients. I like that. I also think that you guys
seem to be looking to build relationships with your contractors. You’re focused
on the fit for the client as well the contractor.
Would you recommend us to others? Definitely, lots of agencies
are completely tactical. But if you’re looking for a relationship with an agency
you can rely on, I think Access would be a good fit for that.
Well, thanks, and best of luck to you on the assignment! You, too!
It's going great so far!
