I took my nephew to Elwood Staffing to fill out a job application. That lady was just as rude as rude can be. Others in there were rolling their eyes, saying they had been treated rudely also. Talked on the phone for 20 minutes to her friend instead of acknowledging my nephew, who just stood there eagerly waiting for her to respond. She can go straight to hell, on behalf of my nephew and other waiting for an interview. So many people needing a job and her in a position she can't handle. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before she gets some serious attitude from somebody. This ain't the time nor the place to be that rude to somebody trying to earn a living. I hope she reads this and knows I am REPORTING her to CORPORATE for her attitude with names, dates, and places. Don't go there looking for a job; all you will get is attitude.

These kind of body-shops are only good for adding experience to your resume, they are rarely "good" employment situations. I had one refuse to give me an application because I had my sleeping child over my shoulder. They had a strict no children rule and all I wanted to do was take an application so I could fill it out and bring it back. But noooooooooo, they had to be f ukers about it, so I walked out the door saying "F#CK YOU!"

However, I did not get the job either!

I went to another agency and got one. Go to a REAL agency like Addecco or Kelley. These local staffing agencies are just shell companies set up by the bigger businesses who want to pay the least for hard work. This you do NOT need.

Times are hard, but working for a a$$hole is its own kind of special hell. Avoid it and find another job if you're suck with one now.

Elwood is terrible. The people there all act like they'd rather be somewhere else. They dress like slobs and mumble a lot. And after you jump through all the hoops and tolerate being treated like doggy doo you will find out that the mandatory drug screening is to be paid for by you, not them. If they said this up front I could have saved a lot of time. It's a bait - and - switch. I offered to pay if I failed it but have them pay when I passed and I walked out when the declined that offer.
I have worked at a lot of day labor places and temp agencies and there is no excuse for their attitude. Maybe they all make minimum.

Fck Elwood....not only drug screen you have to pay for your own benefits too it comes out your check if you wish for benefits and to top it all off they say after the 90 day period you could be hired permanent but yet there's people working for Elwood for two years making same pay....the companies that get their temps from Elwood do this so they don't have to pay for the employees benefits A holes!

The most unprofessional group here in Farmington. The online application is a mess. Completely inoperable and makes them look like fools. There staffing for tech and they cannot afford a effective online application software?
Forget them.

They are incredibly unhelpful.
I worked through them for 4 months and in that time they "over" payed me for 4 weeks of work so their response was to take it out of my next check all at once. Which left me with very little.
They are downright thieves, because of this I was unable to pay my electric bill in the middle of the winter with money I had already worked for.
I informed them of my trouble with their actions and pleaded with them to take it out in smaller deductions but they refused saying I OWE them money for something that was out of my control... quite literally it was in theirs. My power was shut off and along with it my hot water since all my heating and cooling were electric.
I had to go into work an hour early everyday just to shower.
These people are nothing more then "Labor" owners making money of the hard work of others.
They had nothing more to do with my job at hachette other than getting me in the door and yet I had to put in 500 hours before the company I was actually doing the work for was ALLOWED to hire me per a contract with Elwood. Meaning as long as I held the job there until I got through my 500 they were literally getting paid for my work(All the while they themselves did nothing productive or useful).
