    I have been working at Robert Half full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There simply aren't any pros. They have absolutely nothing to recommend them as regards a place of work.

    Cons

    Outrageously dull work. You just call people, ask them if they have any jobs they need people recruited for, and then you call people asking if they want a job. For 11 hellish hours a day... It is beyond terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you could stop being such aggressively boring people and minimise the rampant bullying culture at the company, that would help.

    I worked at Robert Half full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    slightly better basic salary than most of their competitors

    Cons

    too many to mention, KPI's that will make your eyes bleed, everyone hates everyone else. staff hate the managers, managers hate the directors, and everyone hates the MD. The directors want 200 calls a week but all they do is come in at 10.00, log onto their Ipad, online shop, then leave at 5pm. staff turnover is the highest in the industry, no one pass's probation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave.

    I worked at Robert Half

    Pros

    Good training if new in industry will give you a good base to go and find a new job in the industry after 6 Months

    Cons

    Hours, Management Autocratic.
    Should you have experience they try and brain wash you into doing it the Robert Half way?
    Staff who have longer service get away with what ever they want and new staff a treated very badly close to been bullied by senior staff and Management
    management have no vision and are always having to change what they implement as they do not do the research required when making changes (staff involvement Key)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up your staff make the money for the company you give guidence and support (Adolf Hitler died 60 years ago)
