Jobs Roundup: Finding work through Adecco Staffing

Mona Whitley is Regional Operations Manager of Adecco Staffing.

Wading through a job search can be a time-consuming experience. You may want a partner that can help you hone in on jobs that match your skillset. One such local company is Adecco Staffing. Adecco can link you with a variety of general staffing positions throughout the Tampa Bay region, either online or through branch offices in Tampa, Pinellas Park, Sarasota and Lakeland.
 
“What we really focus on is making sure we are making the right match,” says Regional Operations Manager Mona Whitley. “The success rate is going to depend on that particular candidate, on what they are bringing to the table.”
 
Whitley says “hot jobs” in St. Petersburg, Pinellas Park and Tampa, are: customer service at entry-level call centers, entry-level human relations positions helping recruiters and generalists, fork lift operators, assembly and data entry or analyst positions.
 
Candidates, who do not pay a fee, can be hired directly by one of Adecco’s clients, or work for Adecco at a contract job. Although the contract jobs are for a set period of time, they may eventually lead to full-time employment. If not, Adecco tries to place the worker with another client.
 
“We offer the traditional benefits and services,” Whitley continues. “This gives them the opportunity to test the waters and make sure that is something that they want to do.”
 
Here are some current openings:
 
Call Center Agents – Temple Terrace
This contract/temporary job paying $12 to $14 an hour requires six months of customer service experience; call center experience is a plus but is not required. The successful candidate will interact with customers by telephone, answering questions about services, and use a computer to track, gather information and troubleshoot. 
 
HR Coordinator – Odessa
This job is a contract/temporary position requiring a high school/GED education, but a bachelor’s degree and 2 - 4+ years of related experience is preferred. Pay is $22.14 an hour. The contract is for at least one year, with the possibility of an extension. 

Assembler – St. Petersburg
This long-term contract/temp-to-hire job requires one year of related industrial/mechanical experience and/or training. Pay is $10.10 an hour. 

Data Entry Clerk – Tampa
This contract/temporary position requires one year of office/clerical experience in data entry, filing and indexing. Testing is required.
 
If you are already employed, and are unsure if it is time to make a move, you may want to know it’s a “job seekers market,” according to Whitley. “The candidate has the ability to pick and chose their jobs right now,” she says.
 
Adecco Staffing also is able to refer candidates to sister companies that provide help with other careers.
