"I started my career with Robert Half as a resourcer in London, focusing on recruitment in banking and capital markets. With hard work and support from management, I steadily advanced. I'm now a director and feel lucky to be in a position where I can help others reach their goals."

    I have been working at Robert Half Finance & Accounting as a contractor for less than a year


    Accountemps, a division of Robert Half offers the best diversity in opportunities in the Phoenix Valley. Because of them I have had a consistent working career in Mining and Construction. They are professional, efficient, and have the best reputation not only in the state but nationally across the states.


    I have no cons to come up with as RHI/Accountemps has always put me to work when I have asked them too. Couldn't ask for better than that!

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Robert Half Finance & Accounting in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter scheduled interview and was to meet with me prior to meeting me interviewing with her client. She was late to the meeting, zero prep time, she had time to tell me what position the client was most interested in that I held. He didn't ask me one question regarding that company. Epic fail all around.
