Welcome to the Beware of TempWorks site.  Whether you found us researching recruiting software, staffing software, applicant tracking system, payroll services, factoring companies, invoice factoring or found us because you are  considering partnering with any of these TempWorks companies:


 I URGE you to read this site in its entirety prior to signing any contract or agreement!  ​

This site exists to give you the very thing so many of TempWorks' victims didn't have - the complete information upon which to make the best  decision for our businesses.  

My experience led me to research the TempWorks brand.  I was simply unprepared for what I learned.  This site is not merely my opinion!  Here you can read the court findings of Minnesota judges and Minnesota juries who have found TempWorks, TempWorks President & CEO and many other TempWorks Executives GUILTY of egregious acts toward their clients!

My Message to You

Are you considering opening your own staffing company or looking for software and/or funding?  I was, too.

Are you considering turning your dream over to TempWorks?  I did.

They said all the right things in the sales process.  Casey Kraus could not have been nicer and more supportive.  He turned me over to Bob Pugliano.  Although he gave my colleague the 'used car salesman' vibe, I thought he was nice.  He assured me that TempWorks had everything under control.   No problems.  They work with hundreds of agencies.  I was a little start-up.  Easy stuff.

I signed the contract.  I provided all of my financial information to them.  I on-boarded for months.  I set up my database.  I trained on the software.  I traveled to set up my satellite locations.  I had employees.  I had clients.  I was less than 6 business days away from realizing a dream that I had for over 10 years!  This was actually happening!


Then they couldn't print a certificate of insurance on Monday.  Still couldn't on Tuesday.  Still couldn't on Wednesday, but it was all being handled by Bob.  No big deal.  Minor oversight.  Thursday came and went with no resolution.  C'mon, all you have to do is put the client's name on it and email it to me.  The client has already been approved by Ashley Brace.  Friday morning Bob said Mari Kautzman handled it the night before.  Mauri Kautzman said Friday she was waiting for Bob to handle it.  David Dourgarian didn't have a clue about anything.  

And then I got this on Friday afternoon

I did call him with a question.  One question.  "Why are you not moving forward with me?"

His answer was that he had not been told.  One last lie to add to the list.  Pathetic. 

And that's the last time anyone from TempWorks ever spoke to me.  They wouldn't even give me an explanation.

Look at all the cases in the lawsuits page.  Read my story and the story of so many others.  Is this the best you can do for your dream?

Feel free to reach out to me.  I will be more than happy to answer any questions:
