10 pet peeves we look for when hiring employees for temp jobs

We can’t read your mind. But chances are the same employee behaviors that drive you crazy are pet peeves for us, too. So, before our temp staffing agency sends employees to your company, we screen them for a list of personal qualities that could make them difficult or impossible to work with.

Here is our list of the ten most irritating employee behaviors, gathered from our own staffing experts and peers in the staffing services industry. Do any sound familiar?

  1. Sharing too much personal information
  2. Talking about politics or inflammatory subjects
  3. Criticizing current and former co-workers
  4. Being distracted in meetings or conversation
  5. Not responding to calls or emails in a timely manner
  6. Running late for work or meetings
  7. Taking credit for fellow employees’ work
  8. Gossiping about co-workers
  9. Being unprepared for meetings or interviews
  10. Not dressing properly for work

We look for signs of these bad behaviors in interviews, phone calls, and email correspondence. Of course, we also screen for positive qualities in temps we hire, and we see several characteristics consistently in our best performers. Check out our blog post on the seven qualities of the best temp employees.
