Hi Toni,
I've heard of them, they are big company with offices around the country. Guess they have lots of positions open....

I'm afraid I will repeat myself but as I already said it depends on the recruiter himself not the agency. Try to establish a relationship with 2-3 reliable recruiters and you will find a job easier. Instead of sending your Resume to hundreds of job postings, the agents will look forward to selling you and get their commission. ;)

Adecco are well known especially in Asia. Another one will be Robert Walter.

What is the website of this "Robert Walter" agency? Do they have IT jobs?

Hi Guys,

I worked as Help Desk officer at Canada Post through Adecco. I donít find them bad, they negotiate very well the rate, they pay well for some position. The only thing I donít like with almost all agency (I donít know Adecco). They donít comply with Employment Standar Act. You know guys, we are qualified for holidays pay right away when you start any contract. I would say 99% of the agencies; they start paying you holidayís after 3 months of work. It happened to me with Manpawer, I requested my holiday pay, they even didnít get back to me about it. And some of the agencies donít pay at all holidays like Nisha Technologie. I will not recommend you Dynamic Personnel, I worked for them as Web developer for around 5 months get paid $15, they got paid $25 they were taking over %40 of the pay cheque and no Christmas or new year pay, what cheap agency.

I wish Adecco are not like them, I was getting $25 for help desk position and they did pay me holidays while I have been with them for over 3 months. Hope it helps.
