Former Freelancer - Temp says"Got tinnitus at their site, L&S Sweeteners, because they didn't tell me to wear earplugs. White guys are much more susceptible to it according to medical studies, and I was the only white guy there besides two other guys. I can hear the ringing as I write this, and it is over a year since I worked there. They made me stack nearly every day. I developed a nervous system issue in my back and shoulders such that they ache a lot from disuse following intensive use, but they ached non-stop for several months after working at L&S. It is standard for temp agencies in Lancaster to make you do repetitive motions, typically while standing and doing something with a box, but this was the second worst of 7 I have had. However, the others didn't leave lasting pain. Before L&S they sent me to Maple Logistics which paid me $9/hr and offered no breaks. I complained about it to the one lady, who tried to get me in trouble with the boss and then started to nag me until I told her to stop doing so. I was trying to advocate for her and my interests in having a break, and she fought against it! Avoid Tempstar. They'll send you to horrible places. If you confront the guy who runs it about the awful sites, he will say it was your fault for choosing to do business with Tempstar and accepting the sites, and meanwhile, they don't tell you how they'll be ahead of time--at least not whether you get breaks. If you confront them about bad things they do, they will try to manipulate you into thinking they like you or that they have done nothing wrong or cannot control what their clients do, but if they were more principled and moral they wouldn't mind missing the business of bad clients. They want the money though. I would say to try every other temp agency and use Tempstar only if you are desparate, and even then if something seems bad about the site, leave it ASAP. You don't owe it to Tempstar to put yourself in a bad situation."

Highly don’t recommend this one go try out express employment! Cons: Low pay, rude"

General Laborer/Warehouse (Former Employee) says"Well whenever I was able to get to a job assignment they were decent.. there were times I was given an assignments address and it was the wrong address. So I ended up either late or not arriving at all. Not due my carelessness. Other times they would say an assignment was long term and i'd show up the next day just to be told it wasn't and be sent home without a job. Cons: Not to relible"
STAFFING SPECIALIST (Current Employee) says"Tempstar has taught me a lot about the industrial field. It usually is a hectic day. The hardest part is firing people at the end of each day. A company will contact us and let us know which employee needs to be let go. It's our job to call them and handle it with care. It's hard when someone starts crying because they lost their entire income to support their family. Cons: Rude co workers."

Staffing Coordinator and Receptionist (Former Employee) says"Laid off from company due to downsizing. I staffed the clerical end of the business which was in half of the building. Company decided to combine clerical and industrial office. I enjoyed assisting co-workers Cons: I was laid off"
