Stay FAR AWAY from this agency if you are looking for a job that pays a penny more than minimum wage. I have been dealing with this agency for almost two years. Don't bother giving them your resume or personal information, because it always (scary) disappears. (i.e. the representatives that you work with take it with them when they leave).
A note to employers... This agency is THE WORST. The owner has no idea what is going on, because she is almost never there. Their business model is to blanket the employer with as many "bodies" as possibly. They don't care about the qualifications. Just the fact that they have a heartbeat.
STAY AWAY FROM LORELEI STAFFING. Don't make the same mistake as I did.

By far the worst agency I've ever been to. Was called and told there was a job opening in my field (recruiter went into specifics and we discussed my qualifications and background). After the interview, I was told that they would be in touch. Two weeks, nothing; but sometimes this happens. Upon calling to inquire about the position, received no response or was told the recruiter was out of the office. Finally I received an email with my resume, which was for some reason rearranged and had their logo "Lorelei Personnel" on the top....several individuals were attending the "open interview"...just a prospective company for the agency to do business with? I among others were simply being used as an advertisement pool? Could be.
I was told in plain English that there was a job opening, when in reality they were just looking for people to present to prospective companies for possible future business with their agency. Not a staffing agency in the classic sense at all. Finally, never gave my consent for my resume to be tampered with. Never went to the interview.

The worst staffing agency I've ever been to. Where most staffing agencies employ agents who are motivated (and financially incentivized) to place candidates, Lorelei responded to my application as if I was bothering them at home.

I'm an experienced professional in a very competitive field, with a lot of in-demand skills that can be applied to any number of positions outside of that field, and I signed up with a friend who has years of high-level experience applicable to one of the positions they were hiring for.

The agent looked at me as if I had just handed her a resume written in crayon, talked to me for a minute with a clear inability to comprehend what it is I even do, and then said she'd call the next day. She understood my friend's work experience better, but told her the same thing. She did not call, she did not return calls. Not only that, but later follow-ups revealed that she had actually thrown out our applications! Other agents, while more professional, likewise seemed unmotivated to find work for us, unresponsive, and never returned calls. Awful.

I visited another staffing agency recently and they were terrific, immediately lit up with a diverse array of possible placements, and got back to me very quickly. It was the exact opposite of my experience with Lorelei.

This place is a SCAM.

My friend had a stable $20/hr job. He needed more work however, as he was not getting enough hours. So he came to Lorelei to look for some part-time work.

They immediately found him a job as a pharmacy assistant, and told him he'd start in 3 days, and to quit his other job. He quit, and 2 days later they told him that there was a delay and he would start in a few more days. a few days goes by without any contact from the company of when he would start, and eventually, after he called and e-mailed MULTIPLE times to check in, they said that the position was no longer available.

That was 3 months ago. He is still unemployed due to this company.

On a side note, I attempted to find a job through them, and they never so much as gave me a single call or e-mail.

I was looking for a new job after recently graduating college, and came across Lorelei Personnel while I was online searching through an employment database. I was interested in a few positions they had posted, so I sent my resume in. They promplty called me back and wanted to bring me in to talk with me. When I went in for my appointment, I was greeted by a very friendly staff. They promptly met with me and we discussed what type of jobs I was looking for. I then was tested on various computer skills. The tests had very good and detailed directions on what I needed to do, and I was not interrupted during any of the tests. Afterwards, they were able to match me up with a couple of places that they thought would be interested in interviewing me. The next day I received a phone call from them that someone was interested in interviewing me. They helped me to coordinate the date and time of the interview. I ended up getting the job, which I was very happy about. However, in between interviewing for that job and getting it, Lorelei Personnel called me up several times in between and were able to find more places for me be interviewed at. I was very impressed by their dedication to help me and was very happy with the end results!

While trying to find employment for the summer months out of college, I went to at least 6 or 7 temp agencies in this area. The only agency that was able to find me a data entry/typing job was Lorelei. Once you sign up with them and take a computer skills test, they'll assign you to one of their temp specialists, who will get you started.

The first temp job I got from this agency was strictly data entry for a large pharmaceutical firm located in Somerset which turned out to be a great experience. The hourly pay rate was fairly decent at $11/hr. However, this will vary greatly as the next job I took after this was basically putting stickers on boxes for $8.50/hr. Anyway, I highly recommend this agency if you're a high school student or college student looking to do something over the summer.

Lorelei goes foward where other companies stop. They will search high and low to find you a job. More importantly they will find you a job that you want to work for and a position that meets your standards. The staff here understands the frustration of trying to find employment and will always strive to find the perfect match. The only suggestion is to have an outline of what you would want to do before you stop in.

It is a free service to hand in your resume. The staffing personnel then gives you a computer test--to see how well you know the cmputer. They then interview you, actually giving you jobs that are available. I would definitely recommend this agency to an unemployed friend! A few hours later, I alredy have job interviews lined up!
