perfect place with great helpers. If you are looking to work in the medical field, Larkin Agency is the best place! I wish there are other places like LARKIN.

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/5/2013

How can anyone rate this agency as less than EXCELLENT? \r \r I was contacted by Larkin. I found them to be professional, caring and extremely interested in promoting my background and finding me a position.\r \r I met with Nancy. She is precise, professional and totally professional. She had a lot of great suggestions, ideas and was not afraid to sit and talk and share. You walk away feeling respected and in totally good hands.\r \r The other office personnel were equally friendly, polite and very professional.\r \r If you are a SERIOUS applicant looking for a professional position then you MUST give Larkin a try. I truly look forward to finding a great position.\r \r Nancy - you're the best!!!!! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/16/2012

I'll never forget my experience with Larkin Employment Agency. The staff there were very pleasant and polite. Amy was very accommodating, she goes above and beyond the call of duty to find you exactly what you are looking for. But what really impressed me most was the honesty that is given with this agency. If employment hasn't been found for you it isn't because their not trying its just the luck of the draw. I would go as far to say that Larkin's will not let you walk away unhappy. I would definitely recommend this agency to anyone who's looking for employment. more

Had a very good experience here. 3/23/2012

I also read some of the bad reviews here and was not expecting much on my way to the agency. I had never been to an employment agency before and I really did not know what to expect -- my worst fear was that I'd be scammed into something. When I got to the office I was greeted kindly by a nice receptionist and asked to fill out some forms. So far, so good. As I sat and wrote, I overheard staff in other rooms placing various applicants into jobs -- I heard that so-and-so was just placed into a job and that XYZ office wanted to hire someone. All talk was about various people's resumes, references, and job prospects. Another good sign. Maybe I'm not about to be scammed after all. When I finally met with Nancy I found that she was kind and wanted to do everything she could to help me promote my career. She said she thought I was smart and capable, and immediately called two prospective employers and gave me glowing reviews. I got an interview the very next day. Unfortunately it turned out that I could not accept the offer, but I felt so grateful for the recommendation and for Nancy's work in getting me the interview in the first place. I suspect that some of the people who gave bad reviews may not have been very strong applicants, and that's why they did not get placed. It's true that the agency does not place temporary positions. But if you are an educated, well-spoken, presentable applicant with relevant experience and can make the time commitment, speak to Nancy and she will do her best to help you. more

Positive Experience 11/11/2011

I read the negative reviews here before I visited this agency and was a little skeptical but had nothing to lose but time. I found this office to be the total opposite of the negative reviews. I got there early to see what the atmosphere was like. I didn't see or hear anything that appeared disorganized. Calls came in, I heard conversations and never were any of the staff unprofessional. more

Pleasant and Effective 11/16/2010

I recently had the pleasure of meeting the staff at Larkin Employment Agency. I found them to be professional, courteous, and thorough. If you are seeking employment in these tough economic times, this is the agency you need to be affiliated with. Nancy was very attentive and found me a position that best suited my qualifications. She is the best! more

Reconsider 11/10/2010

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. She's bottom line so just have your information together when you speak with her. Be clear on what you're looking for and just let her know. She knows how to create a good match for you and your next employer. more

Worst Headhunter in the City 11/10/2010

This employment agency is beyond inefficient. It is outdated, poorly taken care of, poorly staffed, and truly disappointing. It is family run (enough said) and its employees are truly incapable of delivering good customer service. I was there not long ago and had to deal with the rudest woman and her even ruder daughter. I would not recommend this hellhole to the worst of my enemies...don't bother. And if you do decide to go, get used to the following as Nancy's reply to everything: ""They are still reviewing resumes. Give me a couple of days..."" Pft. more

Relaxed environment but effective placement 10/20/2010

I've been to a few placement agencies and Larkin is certainly not the worst. It is true you can tell that it's a family run business but that also leaves space for the kind of attention you might not find at a larger firm. As far as Nancy being bitter and difficult all i can say is that this statement does not at all reflect my experience. She was willing to work with me even though I was recently out of school with not a ton of professional experience. It's true that times are hard and that jobs might not be plentiful but in my experience the Larkin Agency was at the very least supportive. more

One of the worst temp and placement agencies 8/21/2010

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. more

To provide a more balanced view... 6/30/2010

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! Pros: very helpful in following up with you, lots of contacts Cons: a little rushed on the phone more

I dont know what everyone else is taking about... 11/18/2009

I have been going to the Larkin agency for personal and professional use. Pros: Best Head Hunter in town Cons: It may take a while to place a good candidate more

Don't Bother 9/2/2009

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 more

Big waste of time!!!! 8/6/2009

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. Cons: they do not help jobseekers more

The Worst 8/2/2009

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. Cons: So many more

BIG waste of my time 5/11/2009

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. Pros: They are friendly and helpful at first Cons: Neglective after interviews, unrealistical clients more

Worth registering with 5/10/2009

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. Pros: Professional, courteous staff Cons: Small Office more

Very, very, very, good Agency 2/2/2009

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!!!!!! Pros: she has back to back interviews lined up for you Cons: small office more
