I have had Monroe Personnel help me in my home on personal short-term projects several times. On one occasion the agency sent me someone to help me format a manual I was working on. On other occasions two of their temps helped me with a massive and complicated filing project that I never would have gotten to if I had not delegated the work. Each time Debra Monroe accurately assessed my needs and sent over just the right person. I truly enjoy working with Monroe Personnel and plan to hire them again.

We have worked with Temptime now for a number of different open positions and I have been impressed with Debra and Mark's responsiveness. They take the time and effort to get to know their clients and are eager for feedback. I would recommend them.

After having sent out my weekly notification to recruiters that I am available, Temptime answered! They had a position open with a technology company needing someone to come and review their financial statements. I am impressed with their communication, friendliness, and effort in trying to get me employed.

Never before--and perhaps, never again--has a Temp Agency performed for me, and succeeded in accomplishing the ultimate mission of positively transforming my outlook on LIFE, the way Monroe Personnel & Temptime has.
Sounds a tad dramatic right? Well for a non-profit styled gal who usually gets the heebie-geebies just thinking about ""Corporate Culture"", Monroe has taught me that staffing services can still be communicative, open, honest, and supportive.
OK, now I'm being mushy...What I'm telling YOU is:
If you want an Agency with a ""Feminine Touch"",
One that Empowers womyn & MEN alike,
That includes Women-Owned Businesses in their staffing,
And actually LISTENS TO YOUR NEEDS,
THEN GOOOO MONROE!

We rely on TempTime when we extra staff or assistance with specific projects. We have been thoroughly impressed by the calibre of staff they send us. Everyone we have worked with has been professional and reliable. Debra and Ana take extra care to make sure they find someone with the right skills for the specifc project or assignment. They always check in to make sure things are going well
TempTime is a lifesaver for us and we highly recommend them for temporary personnel.

Monroe Personnel is the best temp agency I have worked with. After moving to San Francisco from Austin, TX I decided to try temping to learn about the area and the job market. Monroe Personnel was one of several agencies I signed up with. They have kept me so busy that I haven't been able to go on any assignments for any other agency. They were also the friendliest agency I have dealt with. Debra, Ana and Mindy definitely make you feel like they care and appreciate the work you do. I highly recommend that anyone who is looking to sign up with an agency in the area submit their resume to Monroe.

Working with Temptime has been a great experience. Their office is friendly and everyone involved is there to help you find nice jobs that fit your schedule. I have temped at interesting places and Debra even found me a great temp-to-hire position.
I would recommend Temptime to anyone who may be nervous about trying temping for the first time. Debra and her crew helped answer all my questions right away and are fun, friendly, and easy to talk to.

I've been with the agency for about a year and a half, with a break in between, and my experience has been great. Debra e-mails me and likes to ask how I'm doing and has always let me know that if I'm not satisfied with my job or have any other issues, to please let her know. I've never felt like I couldn't talk to Debra about anything, and because of that, I'm appreciative and am in a good working environment. Debra found a job that fit my schedule, which is hard to do when you're a graduate student, and now I'm happy where I'm at. Temptime is an agency that cares about people, so if you're looking for employment from a reputable and caring agency, then this place is it!

This was my first time using a temp agency and I was very impressed. Debra had a job idea for me the same day I interviewed and had a job within the week. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. After only a month I had an offer for a full time job. If you're new to San Francisco and needing work, I recommend Temptime above all else. They take into consideration your skills, personal interests, and location (She knew that I used public transportation so she didn't offer my jobs waaaay on the other side of the city).
Overall a great experience!

I came to Temptime looking for some casual work while I got things together. I didn't go in expecting to find anything permanent, but on only my second assignment I was paired with a wonderful opportunity that I would have never even thought to pursue on my own, and it was at a higher pay rate than I had even dared to ask for.
My experience with Temptime, and Deborah in particular, was always smooth. Communication was the best I've ever had with a temp agency. Check-ins went beyond mere formalities. Deborah was genuinely more concerned with my opinion than she was with a bottom line.
If you are looking for temp work, and you are able to connect with Temptime, it will be an incredibly positive experience in your life.

Temp agencies aren't exactly known for their warmth. More often than not, I feel farmed out to a drab, corporate cell block with my WPM and GPA pasted to my forehead.
Remember when Dorothy enters Oz for the first time, and it's absolutely magical - we find COLORS, warmth, and wonderful things?
Well, in this analogy, Temptime is Oz, and owner Debra Monroe is Glinda. That's the highest of compliments.
Never before have I felt so valued as an employee and welcomed into a family - she's personally invested in your happiness and well-being, not just your MSOffice score.
Debra continues to send truly terrific jobs my way, and I'm eternally grateful for her uncanny intuition when it comes to finding gigs that match my needs and really engage and challenge me.
Above all, she scores major admirability points for her constant quest to involve herself in her community and keep her business the best in the market - she's innovative, enthusiastic, curious, and just plain fantastic.
I have been temping with Monroe Personnel Services for about 5 months. I contacted Monroe a month after I moved here from New York City. Enrolled as a full time student at Golden Gate University I needed flexible part-time work. Having just gotten here, I also felt that I needed to familiarize myself with the new and different company cultures of San Francisco. I did not mind working with small or large companies, but I did want them to be reputable, forward thinking ones with a staff of great work ethic. I have been fortunate enough to continue achieving those goals with every new assignment from Monroe Personnel. When I do complete my BA in management at the end of this year, I will be well prepared to enter the San Francisco workplace.
Temptime was my first experience with temping and I thought Debra and the rest of the Temptime staff were very friendly and professional. Debra has a warm personality which makes the temping process less intimidating for first-timers. Debra really takes the applicant's interests and background into consideration when selecting jobs. Although I only needed temp work for about a month, Temptime found me a number of great assignments, two of which offered me full-time positions. If you are unsure of what you want to do and just want to explore different careers, I think Temptime is a great resource. Debra is also very attentive to both her clients and her temps; she will regularly touch bases with them to make sure everything is going smoothly. If I ever need to temp again, I would definitely go back.

Cold......I happen to be in the area yesterday 1/29/07 for another interview. I was quite surprised when I walked into Monroe?s office. The receptionist made me feel as if I was interrupting her day even though I did apologize for coming in without having an appointment.
I informed the receptionist that I was looking for temporary work and asked how to start the process. She informed me that typically a resume is submitted via the internet or fax and they would set up an interview after receiving it.
I politely told her that I thought maybe they had my resume on file because I had submitted it already. She checked her computer and did find it. She said they had received it on 1/16/07. She informed me she would print it out and give it to the owner (???).
I have not heard anything since.....
It was a very cold atmosphere, though I did meet some great professional people at other agencies nearby.

I like them because they REALLY care! They really take my working experience and skill into consideration and do their best to match me. Every job I've been placed so far has been very friendly and helpful. They also listen if there are any problems and work things out. Best of all, they've been keeping me busy once I signed up.

While I find temping to be one of the greatest ways to explore new jobs and get some money coming in between them, let's face it often at temp companies you can feel like a piece of meat. After shuttling around offices all over San Francisco I was so happy to be received by the pleasant friendly and accessible staff at Temptime. They had a range of interesting jobs for me, and it was clear from day one that they really wanted to match me with a job that I wanted, which they did! I told them I like to travel and I like to write, and they placed me at a job where I write multi-cultural comic books. The one down side of being hired permanently at this new job? I don't get to stop in on Wednesdays to pick up my check and say hi to everyone in the Temptime office!
Truly, this temp veterans top pick!
