We feel terrible reading negative reviews about our business. We??re terribly sorry if people don??t have a good experience with us. Our goal is for everyone to walk out of our office feeling that coming here was worthwhile.

With that said, we ask that you read these reviews with an open mind. We expect to get more negative reviews, it??s a given in this business. Coming to an agency is not a guarantee of getting work, the same as with any other interview. We would love to place every person that walks through our doors; unfortunately that??s not possible. In this difficult economy we get fewer job orders. Simply put, we have more candidates then we do positions. It is a very competitive job market.

Doctors hire us with the specifics of what they are looking for. We don??t create any jobs. Even if we adore you and do everything we can to get you a job, it is our clients who make the final decision.

There are many reasons why we may not be able to someone a position. Even if a candidate is wonderful, we may not have something that is the right fit at the time. Sadly, sometimes we can??t place people not because we??re not doing our job, but because we are. We are paid to give extensive and thorough interviews and check references. Not everyone that comes here has the same background or level of experience. Sometimes people do not have great references, a good attitude or the right skill set for what positions we have open. We are looking for the best of the best.

Please know that it is common for us to pick up the phone during an interview. We apologize ahead of time and ask for your understanding. We do not want to be disrespectful of your time. Often times a Doctors office will call during an interview. They are our bosses and we work around their schedule. Temp work is time sensitive and we don??t have the luxury of calling clients back at a later time. Us being non-responsive to the call might actually lose us the job and then nobody gets work.

We thank you in advance for applying to our agency. We hope this helps explain what to expect when you come in.

I'm shocked to read the unhappy opinions! I've dealt with Nancy /Larkin Agency for several years. I went from temp to permanent to management with Nancy's help. She has solid experience and an understanding of what the Medical Field wants.

If it looks like a rat, if it acts like a rat, if it smells like a rat-it is a rat. This office is terribly disorganized, unprofessional, and a complete waste of time. How can anyone this disorganized be a recruiter and identify candidates to appropriate employers. Nancy is a bitter old lady who does not have the skills to properly assess a candidate. Her priority is making money on finding candidates who fit the cookie cutter image on paper, of what she imagines an employer wants. This office will give you the round about but I doubt after meeting with Nancy, that quality employers want anyone that is associated with this agency. Obviously, she caters to the lowest of the classes.

I had an excellent experience with Nancy while looking for a position this year. She was great at calling me back even when I wasn't expecting a call, asking me how things were going, if I'd heard from anyone, etc. She pushed people to grant me interviews, and at the end of the day, after applying for 30+ jobs, the two that gave me offers were ones that I had reached through Nancy.
She can be a bit rushed on the phone, but she's a busy person! Just be a little forward--ask her questions if you need to, don't just let her hang up.
She's really friendly and wonderful and has a great number of contacts and opportunities that she can hook you up with.
Good luck!

I have been going to the Larkin agency for personal and professional use.

Nancy doesnt want to waste either the employees or the employers time with a candidate who is not going to work well in that situation.

I can honestly say that Nancy has a real feel for matching employee and employer. I personally feel I cant work for someone who I dont get along with. This is very important and when I follow this line of thought: in my case, because of my strong points, I work best with someone who allows me to do my job without micromanaging me. I have always found Nancy to have the ability to really know me and find the best match for me.

I personally also, dont care what someone is wearing or how the employment offce - results are what I need and am looking for when going with an agency and since I have NEVER in 15 years, and a lot of my friends that I have recommended to the Larkin Agency have NEVER had a bad impression, I/we will continue to use them when we need to. Friends that have used Larkin include a cancer care RN, a male fertility office manager, a MT Sinai based grant writer.

This is an agency for Full Time employment- if you need temp work, you sould try another agency.

Last year I went to Larking because I had used them in the late 80's to early 90's and they were on top of their game. Again, I'm back searching for something part-time and decided to review them again; The reviews are what I experienced last year. The office was a mess the employees are unprofessional, I specified that I was looking for temp work on phone before going all the way downtown from Westchester and was told there were active jobs; get there they have nothing temp, only full-time! From what I was able to over-hear from 3 other prospective clients, Nancy didn't have that! Everyone was told to call the next day. 1 young lady came from Connecticut. Don't waste your time.

Pros: they interview you the same or next day

Cons: however, its a waste of time

I applied for a job I saw on Craigslist. I knew it was an agency so I did not expect much. Nancy seemed very helpful when I interviewed. She told me that there were over 75 applicants for the job and that I was the last one. She told me to follow up the next week. When I did she gave me some phoney baloney about there being "interest in my resume" and that the hiring manager for the job was on vacation. She told me it would take time. That was more than a month ago and today I see the same job I applied for:back on craigs!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME PEOPLE!!!! Nancy will rush you out out of that dirty little office and off the phone so fast it will make our head spin. I do not believe they have any jobs at all, they just want resumes.

I have never seen any office as disgusting as Larkin.So unprofessional.I was expecting so much but when I went there I saw a dirty,small and dark office.The employees were dressed like they just got back from the gym. The worst though are the owners who acted like they own you and the world.
That is not even the worse,If you can get over their unprofessionalism, they never found me or anyone I know any kind a job.What a waste of time.
PLEASE SAVE YOUR SELF TIME AND DO NOT MEET THIS UNPROFESSIONAL PEOPLE.

If you are looking for a Dental job I recommend Craigslist. Larkin jerked me around for many weeks and could not get me any jobs. The manager avoids talking to you as much as possible after meeting with you the first time. Plus, I personally didn't like her and the jobs she sent me to. So far I have found a great job at Craigslist and have been very happy since.

If you are looking to be placed in the medical field, I feel Larkin Agency is the best place to register with. I am confident Nancy and the rest of the staff at the agency will do an excellent job in providing placement opportunities. I recommend this agency far above Winston Staffing any day. The staff at Larkin is professional and they do their job.

I recommend the Larkin Agency. Nancy is straight forward with you and lets you know how to dress and act when you go to the interview. She also helped me with my resume because I had a lot of experience but I did not know how to word it correctly. I told her I was looking for a part time position, and she was able to place me. At the Time I was in school and was looking for a part- time job and she found me a spot on the days I needed in a great Hospital in the city. I am very pleased with the services from the larkin agency, and my supervisors and managers will not accept any temps unless they come from that agency because she only takes the best. So if you gave her a bad review it?s probably because you where no good enough!!!!!!

This agency contacted me about a job they had posted on Craigslist, and asked me to interview. After the interview I was told there may be a job available for me, not the one I applied to, but another. I was asked by Nancy, my interviewer, to call back on the following day. When I called she said that nothing was available right now, and I should call back again on the day after, without even mentioning the position that was proposed previously. I only wish I had not wasted my time to visit their office. Thank God I did not pay for their "service".

Complete waste of time! My experience post interview was just horrible. Nancy comes off as being very supportive at first but the previous review was correct: she is always too busy to talk to you after she insists that you call back. And when I did call, I felt as if I was an annoying her. Basically, I wouldn't recommend this agency.

Larkin Agency has been a place where I can turn to in my carrier of dentistry for over 15 years. The staff is wonderful and caring but best of all they will try their best to place you where your qualifications are best met. I highly recommend them to anyone in the Medical or Dental Field.

At first I was very hopeful. Nancy seems like a really nice lady who wants to help, but at the end of the day, it's a business and she doesn't really care. She just wants to get paid from the employers she's working for. She can care less about you and finding you a job. As long as someone is hired for one of the jobs she represents, she's happy. She takes on more than she can handle. She kept telling me to call back, but when I did, she was always too busy to talk to me. She'll tell you that she has the perfect position for you, and won't follow through on it. I just felt like it was a complete waste of my time. Such a waste of time. If you want to find a job within the medical field, it's better if you go to the places yourself. See if they are hiring or maybe go to some other agency. NOT LARKIN!

I sent my resume to Larkin Medical Agency and was contacted the next day for an interview. At my interview, we discussed my long-term and short-term career goals and I was scheduled for an interview right then, and another one the next day. I was offered the perfect job on my first interview. I have never had a placement agency match my needs so closely and promptly. I highly recommend Larkin Medical Agency.
