I have been working at Randstad US full-time (More than a year)
Payment on time. Fair benefits. Pay overtime if client is ready to pay if you are full time. Do NOT pay 1.5 times for week ends - Just the usual pay. Excellent recruiter one on one relationship. Wonderful, meticulous, extremely fast Immigration and Green Card processing with a dedicated immigration and green card processing specialist. Trust me. I was amazed by their promptness. They were just on top of it.They took care of everything on time and I never had to follow up.
If on H1B, bench pay of only 4 weeks after assignments. You will be fired if you don't find a project by then. They do NOT do Corp to Corp. Unless you are in top notch technology, it will be very difficult for re-deployments They don't agree for a lower bill rate for re-deployments even if you agree to be paid less. So, be aware and better go for a low to medium pay and don't be greedy and face the bite during re-deployments. They never do anything beyond company policy for the sake of employee even if they have earned hefty during your first assignment. I think that type of business model is unethical. So, be aware of that before you step into. Some projects, even if you submit the resume, you never get a call because they don't have direct hiring manager relationships with all the clients. Some clients, they work only through a vendor portal of the client with no human interaction. All these are BIG problems when it comes to re-deployments. If you are so specific about location, redeployment chances are extremely thin unless you are in NY, LA etc
Advice to Management
Please use the facility of accounting of paying the base LCA salary as salary component and paying the extra billing as a project bonus every month. So, this will make you flexible to re-deploy people if the employee agrees for a lower pay where you will still pay the proper LCA salary for the location but the project bonus will be lower and it is okay. As many are on H1B, they wont go out of status. Getting out of status in the middle of green card process is ridiculously cumbersome. Please don't use the employees to just make profits and throw them unethically like trash as you do now.It is very difficult if we go out of status on H1B and finding an employer to transfer H1B within those 4 weeks of bench pay is extremely difficult. Lots of employees are sole bread winners of their families and they get to the road because of a stupid company policy. It would be great if it is re-thought and re-designed.
