When a client of mine needed a temp, I used these guys. They were very good at finding us a temp admin. They handle all the recruiting aspects, and the payment too. I would use them again for sure.

I have worked for this agency for 2 years . I must say that it is a excellent place to work if you have what it takes.The office staff is very friendly and reliable and they know their employees by name (if you say your first name you never have to say your last). They pay well if you know what you are worth. If you don't know to ask for more you don' t get it. They are just like every other temp agency , the pay is always negotiable! I highly recommend them!

Pros: High paying

Hi, I just registered with them and it was a good experience. They actually already pitched me a cool sounding gig during the interviewl. I'll see where it goes i guess... I am new to NY from the midwest where we put a lot of emphasis on courtesy and friendliness. Well all of them were. Also got to meet the whole team as previous reviews mentioned. Seems like standard procedure there. All in all it compared to some of the more well known places I've been to but felt a bit more personal.

Pros: very approachable and friendly reps

.

You are probably directed there because you see so many positive ratings online, however, when you actually call them, the secretary refuse to answer any questions regarding what the general procedure is. Whatever you ask, she'll just tell you to fax the resume and give you a fax number. She sounds like she doesn't want to talk to you because you are annoying.

.

The secretary needs attitude adjustment. She doesn't give people any respect and speaks as if she has no time to deal with you.

After meeting with Temp Ex, I couldn't wait to hop on citysearch (where I found them) and give my feedback. I'm actually very surprised about the post below. I have not, in a very long time, received more accomodating and friendly service as I did from the front desk rep there. In terms of their other associates, it's true that everyone is very friendly and eager to help. Their clients seemed interesting and they gave me a solid overview of the areas in which they specialize. I am looking forward to hearing from them but until then, I wanted to share the details of my interview because it was a markedly better experience than I've had at various other Temporary Agencies.

Pros: more hands on recruiters than at your average agency. pleasant personalities too.

Cons: true what they say about the loud office...

.

I must be the exception...I came across 3 people who seemed ready willing and able to help...the secretary is not nice at all...I won't say her name but she needs to a personality adjustment..you can tell when she's having a bad day...

Pros: some money

I started with Temp Excellence a few months ago. They placed me at MTV in Dec and I am now full time staff with benefits!!! I cannot thank them enough. I love my job and owe it all to them. They were always so helpful and accommodating to my schedule. They are very professional but also personable. I cannot thank them enough for this opportunity. I highly recommend them.

Pros: Professional, Personable, Variety of assignments

Temporary Excellence is a small agency but they have big contacts. I really admire all of Temporary Excellence recuiters such as Kevin and Jewel. They gave me a position at Columbia Presybertarian Hospital. Highly Recommended.

I highly recommend Temporary Excellence to anyone looking for work! After searching for temp work awhile ago, I found that they were unique in that they treated me like the capable college educated person that I am rather than just a number. Their staff is extremely helpful at placing you in a variety of positions. In the 5 months that I worked with them (before finding myself a permanent job), there was rarely an occasion when they couldn't fill my calendar with work-- mostly assisting executives in interesting departments at MTV in Times Square. Highly recommended!

Good people, good jobs. I have been to many agencies and TEI gave me the best vibe. They worked with me and I have a pretty good assignment now. I am excited to see where it leads. If you are looking for great advice, attention, and results, give them a shot.

Just saying thanks to a great group of folks who helped me out BIG TIME. Lets just say that within a week or two of my interview, I had a super job and I am now in the process of being hired perm. People don't realize that when you temp, it's your foot in the door at a lot of great places, minus the competition of applying online with thousands of others. Temp Excellence is a little different than many places. The are a bit more real, more thorough, dare I say honest. Don't make the mistake of thinking, you got your bachelors, you're too good to temp. Trust me, after a lot of tries on my own, they really helped.

Ok- -so I have been around the block with agencies. After college, I took some time to pursue creative interests. I'd been jerked around by a lot of places, til I finally found TempEx on the net. They placed me during some tough times, and never pressured me into stuff like some places tend to. They are honest. They'll tell you if the job flow is slow-and they don't do the typical razzle dazzle. It's obvious they respect you if you show them the same professionalism. And when I decided it was time to find something full time, the folks there snapped right into action and shopped my resume around. I am on a really great temp to perm where I am actually treated like a full fledged staff member, and I just wanted to take a minute to share my experience so that others know where to go for a good experience like mine.

I recently quit my job and was frustrated with the idea of going through the whole process of finding a new one. So I decided to try temping. With temping I could experience different industries without the long term commitment. I have been working with Temp Excellence for the past month and a half. I have had an assignment the whole time. I love my assignments and am now ready for them to send me out on a temp to perm assignment. The are all so nice and helpful in the office. I have been working mainly with Samantha and Peter and they always find an assignment for me that they know I will enjoy and get back to me right away when I have any questions or concerns. I have been really happy working with them and have recommended them to anyone going through the process of finding employment. I wholeheartedly recommend them.

Pros: Plenty of Jobs, Great Staff

.

Temporary Excellence is an excellent temp agency (pun not intended). I have dealt with a few other agencies in New York and none can rival TE's services: TE consistently provided me with challenging, substantive assignments at quality companies with great reputations.

I had hardly any lapse between assignments and TE's staff (particular Samantha) valued my abilities and always treated me with professionalism and respect.

I highly recommend Temporary Excellence.

Pros: Courteous, helpful, skilled staff

.

This is a great place. Temp excellence gave me very good on the job support once I was sent out, they even helped me through a tough time while on my temp job. At one point, I was fed up with the assignment because of some bad feelings between me and a perm person at my job. They counseled me and helped me weigh the pros and cons, but also told me they'd support me if I wanted to move on. This type of customer service is hard to find since most agencies are really interested in keeping you ON the job regardless of if you're miserable (since that's how they make money). I've been pressured by other agencies so their approach to my dilemma was really refreshing. In the end, the situation corrected itself and I am glad I stuck it out especially because I've now received a perm offer. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I am thankful that they handle people the way they do. This is the best way I could think of to thank them for their professionalism!

Temporary Excellence has great counselors and works with some exciting companies. They placed me temp at my present job and I was eventually hired for an awesome job doing Online Marketing. I am happy here and still am grateful to them. Most jobs are admin, but if you are willing to be a little flexible, you can get your foot in the door at some great companies.

I'm an actor and in between jobs I needed to find "survival" work. I have worked through other agencies who treated me like I was a dumb actor and just a number (in spite of the fact that I have a Bachelor's Degree from NYU!). I interviewed with Samantha who introduced me to everyone in the office. Within 2 days, they had me on a great assignment. They are fair and easy to deal with if you are reliable, honest, and intelligent. I would recommend this agency to anyone looking to be treated with respect.

Pros: friendly staff, helpful

Cons: they require you to take a computer skills test which is pretty annoying, but I understand why.

I heard about Temporary Excellence from a college friend who had been placed through them years ago. Because of her very positive experience, they were the first people I called when I was downsized from my job after eight years. I wasn't in the best state of mind when I came to meet them so I was mainly interested in making some fast money to tide me over with the rent. I was pleased that beyond just thinking of me as yet another temp, they were interested in knowing about my long term goals. They were also very positive and encouraging about my future, assuring me that my prospects were good and that I was a very marketable candidate--things I really needed to hear at that point!

Their jobs are primarily administrative and they are up front about that, but they seemed committed to finding me an environment and industry that would complement my professional background. It took them less than a week to place me on a long term spot in finance, and not only did it help me through a tough time, it ended up becoming a permanent position. I am very happy and I owe it to them. All the recruiters there are pretty warm and caring people. I would recommend them to any one seeking temp to perm work in office support.

They totally helped me out!! And my friends too! If you need to be staffed anywhere, as a temp worker, or you need employment that is not temporary, you can start off temp and see what happens. They are able to help you with staffing at many places in New York City. If you are in NYC and you need a job, go to Temporary Excellence and they will get you temporary staffing anywhere. They helped me and my friends out.

I've read other users reviews and I agree with most because I had a good experience with them. The key is to keep in close contact and be honest about what you want and can commit to. The staff is usually very supportive and understanding as long as you are straight up with them. I have liked most assignments and the pay is good. They don't do all the bait and switch moves you find at some other places.

I had heard a lot about Temporary Excellence from various friends over the years, so when I downsized from my last job, they were the first people I called. Right away, I had a good feeling when I met with them. After I was interviewed, my recruiter took me around to meet everybody there. I got the feeling that they really cared that I get to know them and respected my requirements for type of work and pay. I have worked for over 25 years, so these things were important to me. Within a week, they had contacted me with a few opportunities and were patient during my decision making process. I chose an assignment that I am still on and it pays pretty well. I would recommend this place to anyone, but definately if your are a medical secretary because they work with some good hospitals.

After signing with a handful of bigger places, a friend mentioned Temporary Excellence to me. Although they are not the fanciest agency, their people are all approachable, down to earth, and actually seemed interested in placing me in the in environment I wanted (entertainment). They made me feel at home during in the interview so I was able to relax and really get my point across about my career goals.
I worked for them at various companies for about a month, and then they called me with a great temp to hire job in my field. I recently been made a perm employee here and I am really happy they helped me get my foot in the door.

not the worst temop agency i've dealth with, but not the best either. if you are trying to find a job with these guys, don't put all your eggs in one basket. the best advice i have is to apply to about ten temp agencies, and follow up with numerous phone-calls and e-mails until you find someone who is truly willing to work with you.

This agency came highly recommended to me by a few different people when I told them I was seeking work. I was registered with other agencies, but not getting the results I really wanted. After registering with temporary excellence, it took a few weeks but they called me with a great temp-to-perm assignment that was a great match for my skill set and temperment as well as great pay. I called them every week to check in, and it didnt take long to score with them. Everyone I know that uses this agency are all working at jobs they love with good pay. So I will return the favor that was done to me, and recommend that you sign up with this agency!
