I agree with this review. And I don't see any positive recent positive reviews. The good reviews are dated 2007-2008. :(
After submitting my resume to Integra, they called me in for an interview.
I wound up meeting with a girl in their sister company (Bankston) that specializes in staffing financial positions (which I have no background or particular interest in). The girl chatted with me for about 15 minutes, took my paperwork and said she'd run a background check.
The following week she called me back to discuss a temp job that seemed &quot;perfect&quot; for me and asked me to come in that same day to speak with the account manager.
I arrived professionally dressed and on time. I was kept waiting 20 minutes even though there was no one else in the waiting room and I didn't hear the phones ringing or see anyone leaving - very quiet! So, I doubt there was a good reason for them to keep me waiting.
The end result was a waste of my time and gas driving there.
A guy mumbled lame questions about my past history based on my resume that I already answered the previous week and barely mentioned the position that I came about and made vague references to other positions.
On my way out, the girl that called me in said that if I don't hear from her in two weeks, to call her! Of course, I never did but I waited about a week and then registered a complaint with her alleged supervisor.
I learned that she had only been working there a couple of months and was fresh from college and had no background in recruiting or H.R. She is a wannabe news reporter! I doubt she'll be working there in another six months and is useless.
I didn't bother to get the name of the annoying account manager that couldn't speak a full sentence without mumbling but he was equally unimpressive.
With open positions being few and far between one would think Staffing agencies would use this time to prequalify all people looking for employment. There are many unemployed workers who have lots of experience that cannot justifibly be listed on 1-2 pages. If Integra is waiting for a postion request they may loose the business due to waiting on the right candidate. Prequalification allows you to fill the postions instantly. Maybe Integra has more business than they need. Good for them.
Great people, but after I went to go interview for a job. I never received any response for the temp service if it was good or bad. I think I should have gotten some kind of call back or something, they never call or said anything. Think you people could do a little bit better with your call backs.

I was impressed when I walked in the office and saw all the awards on the wall but even more impressed when I found a great position with a Mortgage company. I had several years of experience and was layed off in the industry, lucky for me they were able to place me with a National Company. I just started my training a few weeks ago but I can already tell I'm going to love it. Thank you for everything.

Its nice to know that there is a company you can go to in Charlotte that really takes the time to listen to your needs. When meeting with the recruiter she went over my resume with a fine tooth comb, at first I was taken back by the amount of detail she was asking me for, However after I interviewed with the company she sent me to, it all made sense. I moved here from NY and had beed to a few agencies, all very nice but none as good as this one. Within three days I was sent on the interview and made an offer the next day. The company was similiar to the company I came from but with opportunity for tremendous growth. I'm happy I've found charlotte and them. It looks like one person is upset over background, at least I know they dot all i's and cross all t's.

The people there were the most un friendly and un helpful I have ever seen. The front desk clerk was too busy to or too good to talk to the little people looking for a job (BIG EGO)!! My appointment was at 10 and was there 15 mins. early and still waited 45 minutes. And I was the only one there!! I had to try to reschedule before someone finally came to see me and then was treated like I wasnt good enough for them to do anything for me. I already had the job lined up and going through Integra was just a formality! I still didnt get the job!!!! Something was said about my background check from 17 years ago that they didnt like( A Misdemeanor thing!) MY GOD!!! I even passed the P test! My history was good enough for Dept. of Homeland Security as well as the NC Insurance Commissioner but not INTEGRA. I have had a stable work history with the same job for over 19 years and have more experience then most employed with Integra but apparently they are too good to hire honest, hardworking Americans that have served their country. Maybe if they would get off the phone and stop all the gossiping at the front desk and actually work! Maybe they could be considered to be a serious place for people looking for work to come! After all, if it weren't for people like me working for them, they would be out of a job! Think about that Intergra! next time you treat people like dirt!

I read the other reviews and felt I should comment on Integra. THey told me in the interivew they really don't do ""temp staffing"" but mainly direct hire and temp to hire....So i'm surprised by the comment regarding a couple of day assignment, sounds like the person just didnt do a good job....I met with a recruiter on Tuesday and by Friday I was placed after interviewing again with one of their clients. I'm a college grad with a two years of experience in admin but really wanted to use my international business degree. I've been to so many agencies that just didnt listen to me...I'm happy where I am but would like to work with a company with international business lines.....Most services called me back offering me interviews in customer service, admin like I'm doing now or something off the wall that was not remotely the career path I was looking for...it was such a time waster....I'm glad I found them and they found me the perfect position....Thank you very much and thank you to my recruiter!!

I sent my resume into Integra and was surprised by the fact I received a call from them within 24 hours and went in to interview. From the second I was greeted to the interview and testing etc. I felt like I was working with a true team of professionals. I was called on that Friday and they arranged an interview for me the following week with a ""dream company"" that I've always wanted to work for but could never get their attention. I received the position and now I've worked there almost six months and love it.....With my previous experience with other staffing companies I was leary about going through an agency...but now I don't know why...Integra has all the positions with the best companies that everyone wants to work for...!!

I hadn't ever used staffing before, but when I moved to Charlotte from Virginia, I opened up to other options. It took a little while, but the recruiter I was working with, regularly updated me on possible opportunities. I had 2 assignments through Integra...the first was a temporary assignment, and the other started as contract and then they hired me on full time! While I still looked for other jobs on job boards, etc... Integra remained positive in helping me in my search. I never realized how many people look for employment through staffing agencies! I happened to be one of the lucky ones...they found a job for me that was a great fit!! I would recommed any of the recruiters at Integra! They all listened to what I wanted in a career: the environment, the location, and most importantly, the compensation. When or if I ever decide to change companies...I'll definitely give them a call!

If your are searching for a job, please do not rely on Integra Staffing to help with job placement. They are very good at sending you on assignments that last 2 or days and will not call you for any other assignments. You will have to call them. If you do call, please make sure you aren't driving to an assignment and then have them call you 5 minutes before you arrive and tell you that the company is having system problems and they won't need to you start that day. It happened to me! Please find your own job. You would be better off. I rate this company as a ""0"".

I've never used a staffing agency before to find a position however I had one of their headhuters call me about something extremely interesting in my field of work. Not only did I end up meeting with this company, I landed my dream job and was able to raise my pay by 25%. I'm not sure how they found me but I'm very greatful for the experience!

Just like with many other temp agencies, Integra fails to supply employment opportunities to folks on the waiting list. I have been waiting for months and my recuiter still has not found me anything. If I were you, I would simply ignore any staffing agencies that claim they have employment opportunities at a specific company. All that they are doing is trying to set a quota of recruitees they can obtain in a certain period of time. You are better off finding a permenant job on your own.
