I swung in to 42 to see if they could recover a bad cut I got at a chain salon at the recommendation of a friend. I was VERY happy with the results, which did NOT involve shaving my head. On top of that, they have free coffee!
PROS: Free coffee/drinks, great service, pro stylists!
CONS: Somewhat pricey... The coffee isn't really "free." :)
A lot of the lower-end IT staff agencies employ less-than-ethical tactics to try to get their consultants work. Though I never got a job through TSC, in meeting with them and talking to them on many occasions, they proved to me that they exemplify how a staff agency should be run.
PROS: Solid, dynamic staff.
CONS: Limited contracts.
I had to go to University Hospitals once for a problem that developed on the job and I was less than impressed. They didn't honor my requests that I not be seen by students and I really felt uncomfortable there. Go to CCF.
CONS: Why go here when CCF is a few blocks away?
Maranatha has a great selection of Christian books, magazine, icons and other related items. Always good service and their pricing is fair. I always enjoy when I get a chance to stop in and visit.
PROS: Good pricing, friendly staff.
PRAP is a great junk yard and they almost ALWAYS have what you're looking for. They're family owned and operated and they take the time to make sure you get what you're looking for and that it's exactly right. Open M-Sa, and worth the trip!
PROS: Good service and selection
This branch is a great resource if you're living or working in Independence. Their staff is warm and friendly and they always have a great selection on hand. Definitely worth a visit.
PROS: Good staff
Sapphire is, in my opinion, the best information technology staffing agency in the Cleveland area. They treat their consultants very well and make sure they are well-compensated, in good working conditions, and satisfied. This is the cream of the crop!
PROS: Great treatment of consultants AND clients.
It has been some time since my dealings with this agency and I still am annoyed at their business practices. Though I have been told the parties responsible have since left the office, many things don't work well when dealing with RHT... First, they will try to absolutely low-ball your salary. Second, they will attempt to have you apply for positions you're not really qualified for. Finally, they NEVER return phone calls. You have to call them EVERY DAY to get any results at all.
CONS: Unethical business practices and they really don't care about their people.
Fairview Hospital is one of the best hospital's in Northeast Ohio. They offer many VERY new and modern facilities, the one I am most impressed with being the Pediatric Emergency Room. It is set up with primary colors, cartoon art and staffed by a group of people who are dedicated to children in a way that is rare to find anymore. Beyond this, they also have the marvelous maternity ward, the Moll Cancer Center, and many other marvelous, top-notch facilites!
PROS: Best in the area, Cleveland Clinic Health System
If you get a call or letter from this firm, get your own attorney, FAST. Nothing said by them can be trusted. Find a pro who can help you and let them deal with each other. They're very good at manipulating the consumer to their own ends.
PROS: NONE! AVOID!`
CONS: Bloodthirst, ruthless and dedicated to their clients.
