No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Randstad US as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

open-ended assignments, starting pay is good (but don't expect raises)

Cons

Starting with Memorial Day 2013, Randstad will no longer pay its contract employees holiday pay. They made it nearly impossible for you to get holiday pay to begin with, having to work an average of 1000hrs in the past 26wks and an average of 35hrs in the past 4wks. The company I'm contracting for, had furlough weeks over Christmas. I've been on assignment for over 2yrs, no chance for being hired permanently, no raises, and have only been paid for TWO holidays in that time because the furlough weeks screwed up any chance for holiday pay I ever had. Now, nothing. That's an entire day of missed pay, essentially a bill going unpaid because Randstad is being greedy and not rewarding their employees.

Advice to Management

Employees work better when they're rewarded for their hard work. Take away the ONE thing they got rewarded for, and they'll look elsewhere. I am. I no longer want anything to do with Randstad. Ever.
