Weak compensation for industry standard, try to keep people in the role by promising a "upswing" in the staffing market

I worked at Randstad Holding

Pros

Friendly and approachable Executive Team, recruits young "green" professionals right out of undergrad, offers part time work for working mothers

Cons

Weak compensation, many many hours for return, every aspect of your position is micro-managed and scrutinized, Senior Management is removed from the actual happenings on the sales floor and is thus slow to implement strategies to address staffing trends

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The pay imbalance between the sales floor and the senior leaders presents a rift in working for a management who feels very removed and disinterested in understanding the feedback of the rest of the company. I would suggest empowering their employees (in benefits and package) as a way to turn around in a bad economy

    Pros

    The first time I looked for temp work they found me a job almost immediately.

    No drug testing

    Pay weekly

    Cons

    After a year long assignment ended they won't even return my calls... They made a lot of money off of me and still no response.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your temps with the respect they deserve, and work harder to make the temps who pay your salary happy.
