My experience at Job Pro was excellent. When i got called to interview I was the only one there unlike others may think. Everything was very professional. And I received an interview the next morning. And a new job the following week. Previous to them I had been at about 2 staffing agencies and never got a faster response then I did here. I would recommend it to anyone looking for employment or looking to hire. No doubt im extremely satisfied.

I was unemployed for 6 months earlier this year and was using several of these temp./placement agencies. After a few months of the other agencies sending me on wild goose chases and not really coming up with anything that was solid, a friend of mine suggested Jessica at Job Pro.

I was lucky enough to be in a position to take my time with my job search and wait for the right opportunity to come along. The other agencies all wanted to stick me with the first job that came along and were growing frustrated with me for turning down some offers because they weren't good enough. When I met with Jessica I voiced my frustrations, with the other agencies and the companies I had interviews with, and explained what I was looking for.

Jessica gave me some tough-talk regarding my resume and offered suggestions on how to make it more applicable for the positions I was looking for. I'm not going to lie, it stung a little because I was already dealing with the mental strain of the constant rejection. Initially I wasn't happy with this at all, but you know what? She was right. And after I thought about it a bit, I appreciated that she was giving it to me straight as opposed to the others who were only praising me to get me on board so that they could meet their quotas and start sending me to interviews that weren't even close to what I wanted.

Job Pro didn't call my very often with leads, but when they did call it was about a job that I was looking for and was excited to interview for. They really understood my situation and where I wanted to go. In the end, they had a great job for me which might have worked out if I hadn't been snatched up by my current employer mere hours before.

If I ever find myself unemployed again (*knock on wood*) I will be heading to Job Pro first. They are so much better than all the others that I've tried

There is NOTHING good that came out of my experience with JobPro in Glastonbury, CT.

After I had applied to JobPro, I received a phone call from them to come in for an interview at 10am the next day. Had I have known about the experience i was about to go through, i would have never even wasted my time!

First off, they had about 8 of us cramped into an area with 4 chairs. Let alone, they told me to arrive for an interview at 10:00am, but i never even spoke with the interviewee until 11:15am, and for only literally 3 min because she was having surgery the next day...!!! After the so-called "interview", they had me go into a small backroom and use the most grimy, unsanitary computer I have ever seen to do some elementary math exam. (3+2=?, 5-1=? and so on...) After that I spent 15min on another exam... How to read a ruler?!?!?

Did I mention that I have 2 degrees and some experience under my belt.....

I have been looking for a job for some time now, and have had no luck, so I figured I would at least persue any possibility I could grasp. The "interviewee" that I got stuck with could only find two jobs for me. One at a factory making $8/hr, or another about 40 min away making $10/hr. I agreed to visit the job the following day to see if it was something I was willing to do. Upon visiting the job, I found out that it was a mandatory 60hr a week. I was excited to work the extra overtime to help pay a few bills, but standing in one place folding the same pattern into a cardboard box at 10 hrs a day, 6 days a week was not something I had planned to do after graduating from business school. I called JobPro and told them that I was not interested in working there.

This is when it got worse.... While sitting through the painful interview process at JobPro, I heard many times that JobPro would never pressure you to take a job that you were not interested in. Just simply tell them that your not interested and they will begin looking for a new job. WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

After telling JobPro that I was not interested in taking that job and I would like them to help me in the search, I received three phone calls. Each one was from "Jen". She was curious as to why I was not interested in the job. The first two times I told "Jen" that I did not go to business school and obtain two business degrees to stand in a factory folding boxes at $8/hr for 60hrs a week. I thought that by this point "Jen" would have understood that i was not interested in working there. But, of course "Jen" called a third time the next day for no other reason than to harass me because I was not interested in taking the job. Jen said that I was "ethically against working for any company that requires employees to work overtime" and then she started laughing at the fact that I have been looking for a job for ovr 8 months! "Jen" was literally laughing.... I was floored when she put those words in my mouth, than furious when she started laughing at me. I told "Jen" that I did not appreicate her laughing at me, and that is when "Jen" went off the deep end. She became irrate screaming at me, telling me that I was "dumb for not taking the job" and that there are "plenty of people looking for jobs that JobPro would much rather help." All this because I told her that I did not find the situation funny.

To make a long story short..... DO NOT think JobPro is here to help you. They obviosly have a hidden agenda to make profits and not provde the service they promote.
