Rene 268x300 - Say 'Hello' to Rene B., Our Employee of the Month

After 6 years and 35 assignments, it is high time we recognized Rene B. for representing Philly Temps & Perm as well as each of the clients she has worked with, so well.

Rene is not only professional and eager to perform each task given to the best of her ability, she remains pleasant and upbeat under any circumstance. We can actually hear the smile in her voice when we call her for an assignment.

Our clients have shared nothing but praise for Rene, and we are proud to have her part of our Temp Family.

We recently had the chance to get to know Rene a little better.

Philly Temps (PT): How long have you lived in the Philadelphia, PA area?

Rene B (RB): I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA

PT: What was your work experience prior to working with Philly Temps?

RB: After graduating high school, I was employed in the banking industry and moved on to employment with Bell of Pennsylvania from 1970. My positions while employed at Bell of PA were clerical and I was promoted to a management position from which I retired in 1996.  After retirement, I worked in my church as well as a full-time Caregiver for Mother and Sister.

PT: How did you hear about Philly Temps?

RB: Learned of Philly Temps through internet while looking for temp agencies to supplement income while Caregiving.  Philly Temp allowed me to work around my schedule which was perfect for me at that time.

PT: Please share your most memorable experience working for Philly Temps.

RB: In May, 2017, I was assigned to LightFair International Trade Show & Conference held at the Philadelphia Convention Center.  My position was as Administrative Assistant to Vice President.  This was a fun but challenging assignment.  Over 600 exhibits were on display and my tasks were to help staff set up Show Office to receive exhibitors, guests and company upper management. This was a fast-paced assignment and much of my time was spent alone in the Show Office.  Knowing how to handle irate exhibitors, frustrated attendees who stopped into the Show Office with various problem situations, a staff who had requests and expected quick results were a big part of the day.    My previous experiences with Philly Temp prepared me to meet the challenge of this assignment with confidence that it would be a win-win.  Also working as a Registration Rep could also be demanding but enjoyable.  Presently, my position at Salus University, as an Administrative Assistant is very rewarding.

PT: What are your long-term career goals?

RB: My long-term career goals are to continue with Philly Temps with the great assignments.  As a retiree, I enjoy keeping in touch with the business world, meeting new people, learning new things and staying active technology.  Philly Temps allows me to do that.

PT: What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?

RB: I enjoy travel out of state and country.  I try to take one big trip each year.  I enjoy trail walking and bike riding.  My favorite music is Jazz – especially outdoor Jazz concerts.

PT: What advice can you give to prospective candidates that want to work with Philly Temps?

RB: Develop a strong positive work ethic.  Be consistently on time.  Command your present skills while learning new skills.  Dress professionally from head-to-toe.  Give respect to earn respect.  Own each assignment – as if it were your own personal business.  You want each day to be a successful day!!

Choosing one employee is never easy.

December 1st, 2016

Because Philly Temps Staff is the best in the city, selecting just one employee to showcase each month is a challenge, but we know that our Employee of the Month for December 2016, Josh P. is worthy of the distinction.

josh-p-eoe-1

Although Josh is one of our most reserved employees, don’t let the soft spoken tone fool you. His Diligence, Professionalism, Abilities and Customer Service Skills are easily understood.

From his assignments doing Data Entry, Reception and Mail Room to his time registering Convention Attendees and Greeting the Olympic Teams at the Airport, Josh has represented Philly Temps and our clients superbly.

Thank you for all of your hard work Josh, and thank you for answering the questions that help us to know you just a little better!

PhillyTemps (PT): How long have you lived in the Philadelphia, PA area?

Josh P. (JP): I first came to Philadelphia in 2011 to attend college. After a few years of splitting my time between the city and my hometown in Lancaster County, I finally settled in Philadelphia in 2014.

PT: How did you hear about Philly Temps?

JP: I was looking around for entry-level clerical work shortly after graduating from college. Some searching online led me to Philly Temps.

PT: What is your previous work experience?

JP: When I’m not working at events or in offices for Philly Temps, I’m an annotator at a linguistic research lab, which essentially means I’m doing much of the grunt work on research projects.

PT: What are your long term career goals?

JP: I intend to pursue a master’s degree in either library science or museum studies and eventually find work in, you guessed it, a library or a museum.

PT: What is your life like outside of work? What are your hobbies? Are you involved in your community?

JP: I play drums in a few bands and have a studio where my band-mates and I help singer-songwriters record their songs with a band behind them. I spend my “off” time writing and recording music and touring around the country.

PT: How has working as a temp been helpful to you?

JP: Working as a temp has given me some unique work experience, but has also allowed me to pursue other hobbies and interests that I don’t receive a paycheck for.

PT: Has working as a temp changed your mind about your long term career goals? Inspired you in any way? Motivated to achieve more?

JP: My temp work has mostly shown me that I’m capable of much more than I typically give myself credit for. I started working for Philly Temps with a very small comfort zone, and while that may not have grown substantially, I have learned that stepping outside of it is an exhilarating and fulfilling experience.

PT: Please share your most memorable experience working for Philly Temps.

JP: It’s going to be tough to top working for the Democratic National Convention. I met a lot of interesting people, did many things that I couldn’t have imagined myself doing before, and worked harder in that week than I had in a long time. At the end of it, I was thoroughly exhausted, but very proud of what I’d been able to accomplish.

Helping The University of Pennsylvania Freshmen Student Move-In!

August 24th, 2015

Philly Temps was proud to help the Incoming Freshman move into their dorms for the third year in a row.
Is it work? It sure is!! But it is all about the people, and we couldn’t be prouder of the staff this year! They GOT IT DONE!

Our event staff proved once again, that when you come together as a team, anything can be accomplished. It is also worth mentioning that not everyone can pull off Neon Yellow with such style.

Thank you University of Pennsylvania class of 2020 for giving us the privilege of helping you start your journey and thank you to the hardest working team of event staff out there today!

Use Philly Temps – To Quickly Fill Positions

March 13th, 2013

temp460 300x180 - Use Philly Temps - To Quickly Fill Positions

Frequently I am asked what the turn around is on the jobs I place. How long does it take? Well, that really depends on the job. A Receptionist that calls out sick? A matter of minutes, usually. A straight send for an open job? Less than an hour. A position that calls for resume review? Depends on the client’s timeline, anywhere from a matter of hours to a month. No matter what the length of the position, Philly Temps provides expedited, quality placements, picking up the phone to call our short list of temps right after getting off your phone call. And that fast turn around makes all the difference. Getting the right person into a vacancy aides in the overall quality of the temp experience for everyone involved, for our workers and your company. How are we able to make such lasting, swift placements? Let me tell you our staffing secret. Read the rest of this entry »
