Immature behavior by office staff 11/19/2009

Get everything in writing before they send you out for an assignment. My account manager gave me a job that she said would pay $16/hour, but when I received my paycheck it was only $15/hour. When I called, she wasn't there, so the receptionist forwarded me to another account manager who quickly got defensive without investigating first. She angrily told me ""I'm sorry you misunderstood the pay. If you heard wrong then there's nothing we can do about it."" Mind you, she did not research anything first-she just immediately accused me of misunderstanding. I didn't call to start a fight--I simply asked why the paycheck wasn't the amount they said it would be. Within a few hours, my original account manager called me back and said it was a data-entry error which they fixed, and they will cut me an extra check for the difference. She was very nice but did NOT apologize, and instead accused me of having a temper. Again, accusing me of something that was factually wrong without bothering to investigate what happened first. In fact, I never lost my temper but her coworker did. Yes, I understand that everyone makes mistakes, and even before calling them I had assumed that my pay was a simple mistake that they would easily fix. But instead of apologizing, everyone's first reaction at Headway was that I had heard wrong or I was trying to extract an extra $1/hour from them. Think about this if you're considering working for Headway. You wouldn't accept this kind of immature, defensive behavior from an employee----so why would you take it from an employer? Pros: they found me 3-week temp job Cons: read my review!! more

Avoid 8/30/2008

They had me at a perm job, I showed up three maybe four weeks later at 8am like I would everyday (and I was driving 22 miles everday for this job.) So yes commited to the company I was working they did not let me know that the cleint (Mekanna) did not want me to return until i was already in the parking lot if the client. Pros: They pay for parking Cons: They do not stand by there word more

Try To Avoid this Place 6/26/2008

When I first signed up with them, they seemed very nice and friendly. I told them that I was looking for a temp to perm job, and then they tried to pressure me into a temporary 2 week job that I wasn't able to accept, that was 20 miles away to boot. When I tried to tell the person that was helping me that wasn't what I was looking for, she became very aggressive and tried to push me into the position, and I politely kept declining since I am not looking for something temporary. Do not use this place unless you are looking for something really temporary. more

Manipulative and creepy 4/30/2008

I signed up to work as temp-to-hire, and even though all the associates were friendly and professional, it was obvious to me that they were only interested in placing me into whatever jobs they had available, not the ones that fit my resume (I'm an accountant). They also tried to guilt-trip me when I refused to drive 13 miles for $11/hour job, saying they couldn't use me anymore if I kept turning down jobs. With gas at almost $4/gallon, my earnings would be minimal after taxes--and I wouldn't be a very good accountant if I didn't figure this out. These people are manipulative & try to use high-pressure sales tactics to shove me into unwanted jobs. The only good thing about them is that they do validate for parking when you show up at the office for an interview. If you're an employee looking for a job, then look elsewhere first! Only come here if you're desperate & will take any job. Pros: Good location, validate for parking Cons: Manipulative, high-pressure salespeople more
