I’m a career-changer with an extensive resumé containing work experiences in various industries—from art gallery to academia. However, the last time I’d held an office job was in the era when the IBM Selectric typewriter and Rolodex was standard technology!
Monroe/Temptime knew what to do! After a comprehensive interview with to determine my “transferable skills,” Monroe/Temptime sent me on assignment to one of their longterm client companies—with terrific success!
Firstly, having sent many temp workers to this company over the years, Monroe understood the company culture. And then, having made a detailed study of my skills and experiences, the Monroe/Temptime people used their creativity—making my employer and myself very happy indeed!

I've had such a great experience with this business. Debra and the team set me up with great positions and are flexible when things come up. Monroe is always very reasonable and sticks up for temps when they are not treated fairly. Even if you've had not so great experiences with temp agencies, give Monroe a call. Employers; Monroe's work is backed by their warranty for quality.

I have been with the agency a while now. Debra and her team are a delight to work with. They listen to your needs, and try their best to find a suitable position. Debra and her new team are WONDERFUL, and really care about what they do. This is a great agency to work for.

Okay, *deep breath* this might be a little long but I depend on Yelp a lot, so I'd like to help others find reputable places as well...
I left NYC for San Fran on Halloween and tried to figure out my next steps for a few days. I'd been a temp before on the East Coast, but I hated how inconsistent things were...I wasn't expecting much, but I still set up interviews with a couple of agencies right away. I met with Beverly and Tom (and was later introduced to Debra...she has SUCH a fun personality) and Tom tested my comp skills, while Beverly discussed my needs/wants in a position. They were all so laid back and pleasant...it's a small office and I don't think they take on just anyone as a candidate, they seem sort of particular (in a good way) since they tend to place at smaller companies.
I randomly blurted out that I might like to try a law firm (my mother has been pushing law school since forever). I met with them on Tuesday, and was contacted with a placement at a law firm on Friday lol just my luck, I was over the moon. The firm was small and really felt like a family. Monroe Personnel/Temptime even checked on me regularly after I started to see if it was a good fit and ask if I needed anything. I believe they do a lot of placements within the Financial District/SoMa area, so that makes for a good commute if you're coming from the East Bay. I'd kinda lost all faith in temp agencies before Monroe/Temptime. They have a really great team and I'd refer them to any solid candidate/new transplant looking for work in a flash.
Oh, the law office is like, less than a 10min walk from TempTime and Beverly brought over this wonderful chocolate, pretzel, caramel, Oreo cookie bar/brittle type stuff from Trader Joe's for Christmas. It's things like that that really set TempTime apart!

I absolutely adore this agency! I applied to Monroe Personnel/Temp Time because I had become so sick of working retail jobs for very little money and way too much stress. I wanted to get my foot in the door of a professional job and a Temp Agency seemed like my best bet.
Not only did they accept my application within 24 hours, but Debra personally helped me re-write my resume and landed me the most amazing (and professional) gig. I have been working for the same outstanding company for a year now all because she believed in me and gave me a chance. I am not kidding when I say this job has been a dream come true and opened many doors for me.
Thanks to Monroe Personnel I can now proudly work in any office with the support and credentials to back me up.

A friend recommended Monroe Personnel Service (Temptime) to me over 10 years ago. This is a small agency with big integrity. They've always set me up with great assignments (as a temp) and with great temps (as an employer). Give them a call, they'll do good by you.

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.
