I used this agency while I was in between jobs. The representative I was assinged to was really friendly and gave me some great tips. I got a few interviews through them. Though none of the interviews worked out for me, I still appreciated the information and networking opportunities I got through them.
This is a nice office located in a bank which is very close to major businesses and retail outlets. The staff is very proficient at finding jobs. There are always wide ranges of jobs that fits the staff accountant, AP/AR, to analysts. The pay rate is very fair. On their website, they also have lists of what positions are available, pay rates and term period. This is a good office to find something fast, considering Oak Brook is the center for a lot of major/solid companies offering positions.
PROS: Many jobs, quick responses and the salary is good
My partner and I have been trusting JonLyn and Associates with our taxes and business finances for the past four years. We have found them to be very organized and professional. JonLyn is a small business which we have liked because they know us by name when we call or come in and they care about us as people, not just clients.
While browsing for something else, I came accross the spring & summer course offering in computer assembly at skillsoft. I was very impressed with their course descriptions regarding their depth, price, and the duration. I registered for this course right away and started taking classes in March. It was wonderful. Teachers are experienced and skilled (not soft at skill at all), and I learn a lot about assembly language.
PROS: Classes are good
I believe this is the last salon i have been to in evanston. This one is located on orrington avenue, close to steven paparonage salon, but their service is not as good. They gave nice haircuts and they are fast. You do not have to stay there for more than half an hour. They also have good magazines there for you to read when you are waiting, though you do not get to read for long.
PROS: Fantastic service and great styling!
Comfort Keepers is an excellent company to turn to if you need any type of HVAC work done, especially for the service or installation of heating and air conditioning systems. I was glad I turned to them when I was having problems with my AC. Their technicians are very skilled and knowledgeable and they completely explained the situation and the options available to me. Keep them in mind for this type of work.
PROS: Friendly Service
These are the people I went to to get daughters pictures taken. They did a very nice job and took their time. They let you do a lot of different poses and outfits. Both dressier and more casual. All of the people I know that used them were happy with the way their picstures turned out. I know I plan on using them again when it is time for my daughters pictures to be taken again.
PROS: Professional and great quality
Little Fort Media offers extensive design, photo, video, and copying services. They have reasonable rates and their work is very professionally done. I particularly like their video services in which they can transfer any older format to a new format. Their transfer to DVD service is a little pricier than some of their other services but the results are worth it.
The Evanston Art Center is a great place to learn to paint, make jewelry, learn to sculpt, create pottery, and many other artistic expressions. There are classes for both teens and adults, as well as one-day workshops for beginners and those trying to learn a more difficult technique. The Art Center features gallery shows and an outstanding Christmas show, perfect for finding just the right gift that you can't find in any store. The emphasis here is on fine art, and this is a great local resource for all art lovers, whether you're a practitioner or just like to buy.
PROS: Classes and shows are outstanding
Davis Flowers is a good, but not great, neighborhood florist. They have a good selection of fresh flowers and arrangements with a helpful staff, which is nice. However, the last time I was there, I just couldn't quite find an arrangement that really stood out and ended up half-heartedly ordering something that I eventually called back to cancel. They're worth a try though if you're in the area.
PROS: Selection (most of the time)
