Placement within different industries exposed me to new programs, processes and procedures which have been valuable in expanding my skills. The cons are that some assignments are farther from home than I prefer and little say in not accepting assignments.

All the HR there works like sales person and we are their products for sale. We work completely independently without instructions. You need to be super self-disciplined and self-motivated person to do well in this company

Each division stands on its own merit. NYC/Orlando extremely good. However, Tampa is more concerned about sealing the deal so they couldn't care wether you and the client are a match or not. Questionable clientele base.

Working as a Salaried Professional, is like going to temporary jobs but having the financial security of a permanent job. I started with a 3 month assignment then went a few weeks later to a one month assignment. If you don't like to feel like part of a group, this is a great position for you. I decided it really isn't the environment I like because I like to feel part of the company and like to have a little input as far as recommending procedures that can improve the job. Also, it is hard to be good at a job within a short period of time - not much time to show how productive you can be. I thought I might like going into a company to help them out in a crisis, but I really never "fit" in, because they knew I was a temp. It's fun to be challenged and meet new people, but it really made me feel like I didn't /couldn't be part of the team in the end. The management at Robert Half ALWAYS are looking out for your best interests. They offer great benefits and the pay is about average.

They are a nice resource for when you're between jobs. They don't have a lot in my area; mostly positions within the city. I don't have an accounting degree but they can find something in the accounting/finance area where my skills are needed. Who wants to pay an accountant with a degree when an accountant without a degree can do the same work for way less?

My hours were flexible and for the most part the work environment was satisfactory. I enjoyed working with most of the team members although the job task was not explained properly from the beginning.

I was placed in assignments where the skills the company needed matched my own. Good caring people that had your best interests in mind. The hardest part of the job was switching companies after a few weeks.

During my time with Robert Half, I could not have ask to work for a better company while on assignment. However, Robert Half is the company I am reviewing, and my experience with them is limited to the hiring process, ongoing support, benefits/pay, and the resignation process.

So, let's break those down below:


Hiring Process:

Very nice, a lot more professional and respectful than most temp agencies. Very responsive to needs, and interviewed with a position within the week. Also received an assignment within two weeks. No hassle with any necessary documents, and the process was straightforward.


Ongoing Support:

Well, this can vary by each case manager, but I would say that there pretty much is none. You're the product, after all. Expect them to do no more than their legal obligation.


Benefits/Pay:

Great pay for my area, even on the lower end of the spectrum. It was a great way to get my first real start in the industry.


Holidays are unpaid unless you work 2100 hours in the year prior (for full time workers), salary may have different requirements. Please note, in the average work year of 40 hours a week for 52 weeks, a worker will only work 2080 hours. Overtime is frowned upon and is never really approved.


Resignation Process:

Once again, you're the product. They don't care, and will likely speak to your manager before acknowledging your resignation.
Pros
You're employed for a moderately fair wage.
Cons
No job security, not much respect. Do not depend on this company!

Have worked for them for a number of years. Pay is decent and they offer limited benefits. Your contact at the agency checks up with you while on assignment to review the position. Have an ongoing issue with payroll that has not be resolved after 6 months. But I recommend them if you aren’t proficient at networking.

Helped me to obtain temporary employment. Not all jobs that they recommended were a good fit. The last temporary position I took turned into permanent employment.

Placement councilors do not care about the temps & treat them like animals. Don't dare ask to be removed from an abusive client, because they will not placed you again.

They keep me pretty busy. They are good at pulling and filling between clients with their own candidates. They know how to match people and assignments for a good fit. They also try to accommodate candidate’s personal interests where possible.
