After my last child was born, my husband was working a night shift. At this time in my life, it was a good idea to stay home with my children as this might be my last chance to spend so much time with them. I decided to temp for a couple of years so as not to lose touch with changing technology.

The staff treated me with respect and let me know that they appreciated my skills and hard work. If someone I temped for thought I was a good worker, they let me know. If I had a bad experience, they would say, “Remember you don’t work for them, you work for us and we know what kind of work you do”.
If I had the means to temp and didn’t need to work full time, I would work for them. I heard they had permanent placement now, so I will keep them in mind for a full time job.
