June of 2013, I went to Burnett to apply for temp to perm work. I filled out a lot of paperwork and spoke to Jillian. Every week I would call her and e-mail her to let her know I was still available and to find out if she had found anything for me.

Alcon is the worse place to work at. you get a contract of 1 year and six months to get hired . within that time you'll never get approved and or hired until that whole 18 months is up and even then you still have a very slim chance of getting hired. Plus whats worst is that the place is not really, clean room material, people sweating over the product, sneezing on it, nose drippings on product, and Hygiene is unbele... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse

Isn't it Ironic That the positive reviews about Burnett Staffing were written between 12/9/2009-12/16/2009? I guess the receptionists didn't have much to do around Christmas time.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse

Burnett Staffing was able to place me in a job in a couple weeks after a 5 -6 month search with no luck. I've worked with several recruting firms, and I would definitely recommend Burnett to anyone. They were efficient, incredibly helpful, and they helped me find a job that turned out to be great fit!!Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse

I initially came to Burnett when I too lost my job and had been unemployed. Since I had worked as an employee of a staffing agency as well as a marketing/sales and PR associate, I had a good handle on who I didn't want to have represent me.

That the positive reviews about Burnett Staffing were written between 12/9/2009-12/16/2009? I guess the receptionists didn't have much to do around Christmas time. I wouldn't recommend Burnett Staffing simply because you can't expect returned phone calls or emails when you are searching for employment. I've experienced much better staffing agencies with a more personal touch.Was this review helpful?Yes(2) No|Flag Abuse
I Don't find this to be a very respectful place when it comes to getting a job from this staffing agency they do not give you what you want and they have some very mean people. I was yelled at and I was not only yelled at but I was lied to also. They make no sense whenever It comes to giving people a chance at an entry level position. I would not recommend this place to anyone who is in the market looking for a job a... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes(4) No|Flag Abuse
