When I had an interview with a recruiter from Insource, she told me that I would be working full time (and expected to work overtime during peak seasons) and she told me I would receive a performance pay. When I asked about the performance pay, she said that I would have a base pay ($9 p/ hour) and depending on my work performance, I can earn anywhere from $0.25 to $3.00 extra. Even though I was hesitant about $9 a hour, I happily took the position because I had been looking for work for almost 2 years. On my first day, other Insource employees warned me not to get too excited about the performance pay because it was rarely awarded. After a solid month of working with Insource, I see why other employees were saying this. Within 30 days, I was making (on average) $12.15 an hour and I can run circles around a lot of the other employees. I quickly noticed that the employees who were complaining were the slow ones who wanted to talk with their buddy all the time! A manager is not always breathing down your back and I took advantage of the situation by being a productive worker. Others would find opportunities to hop on their phones when managers were not around and they were not being productive (your productivity is tracked on a computer). After a month of working with Insource, they certified me on a forklift and taught me how to drive one. I still managed to keep my performance up and then after roughly 2 months of working, Insource promoted me to a safety coordinator. Also, when peak season began to slow down and hours had to be cut, my hours stayed the same (except overtime). I thought it was hilarious that the unproductive/lazy workers complained and threatened management when they went from 48 hours a week to 15 (gee, I wonder why?). They should of considered themselves lucky because from previous experience with other labor companies, they don't cut your hours when times slow. They simply cut you and replace you with another person when peak season returns a year later. I do not look at Insource as a temporary labor agency. From past experience working with Aerotek, regardless of how good you are, they will not hesitate to let you go. At Insource, if you do what is expected from you and do it well, they recognize it with higher pay and promotions (forklift and safety coordinator). I have now been with the company for 7 months and my supervisor told me that I am going to be promoted to a lead. Yes, the work is very difficult at times but also rewarding. Just with my forklift certification, I could leave Insource and go work for a company on a forklift for $13 an hour (after I get more experience). I am not going to do this to Insource because of the opportunities they have given me, but my point is that if you are willing to work hard, you can slowly climb the ladder at Insource and add more positive/leadership experience to your resume.

Dealing with a fire claim is a difficult experience. Dealing with an irrational client makes that experience even more difficult and this was the case in our experience with the Holley family. WorldClaim was contacted by the Holleys to assist them with their claim through a mutual friend who recommended our services based on past experiences. We did not seek out the Holleys, they sought us out. WorldClaim sent a full team of people to meet with the insurance company’s representatives and agreed on the scope of work on both the building and contents portions of the claim and submitted estimates and inventories which accounted for the damage that we assessed. During the process we maintained a complete dialog with the Holleys and apprised them of the status of the claim and the insurance company’s offer. Through WorldClaim’s effort we nearly doubled the initial offer from State Farm. During the claim we also assisted the Holleys in dealing with their mortgage company. This service, which we provide for no fee but as a courtesy to our clients as it is a complex process, became even more complex because the Holleys were in arrears on payments to their mortgage company and the mortgage company would not deal with us directly until the mortgage company was brought current. It was this issue that caused the delay in negotiating the insurance checks, not WorldClaim’s staffs’ negligence. To the contrary, we provided accurate information to the Holleys on the status of their mortgage and worked with them and their mortgage company on an agreement to bring the mortgage current so that the settlement check could be negotiated. In my last meeting with the insurance company’s representative we had the insurance company amend the damage to the building even further. Immediately following that meeting I met with Mr. Holley to advise him of the changes to be expected in the scope of work and he was extremely happy. Upon return to my office I found that Mr. Holley terminated our services with the rationale that he was not going to pay us for the increase in his settlement that we made as a result of the last meeting. WorldClaim is currently in litigation with the Holleys over an unpaid fee which we fully expect to collect based on the services rendered and the dramatic increases we have negotiated in their settlement.
Diana is totally right about the insurance. yes, it is available day one but you have to apply for it and they do not tell you that in all the paperwork you do. When I did get my card, It was followed with a letter from BCBS of GA telling me about the PE clause which renders the insurance useless for 12 months unless you have an emergency.I had to fax COCC from my prior two employers to get "immediate" coverage and get my prescriptions filled. On another totally different note, my recruiter, Annette , is great as are the office people. I had a contract Cx after 4 weeks and that very day I had phone interviews set up. The housing folks really work with their travelers to find safe, comfortable housing. Hard these days to find someplace non smoking and pet friendly !!
I met with Tara today, who was very personable and seemed to know alot about the company that I was applying for. When I walked into the office I was greeted immediately by the secretary who was nice and professional. The office was clean and orderly which is another attribute that I look for in an office setting. The interview went well, even though it was very brief, but Tara and I had a great conversation, and she was quite easy to talk to. From the experience that I personally had, I would recommeend Aerotek to others in a heartbeat.
After spending 16 years in out side sales, working in different markets,when I found my self looking for employment I was pleasantly surprised that my recruiter Justin took the time to make sure he placed me in a job where my skill sets would be better utilized,so that it made sense for my employer as well as myself. I have never been through staffing agency but can say the job I'm currently working for is exactly what I have been looking for my entire career.
