    Pros

    Great people that care about one another. Very nice facilities and incentive programs to earn awards. I had a blast while working at Randstad Engineering and I made wonderful life long friends.

    Cons

    I had no cons working at Randstad. My only con was personnel. I had a very long commute to work everyday crossing I-285 and I-75. Very stressful and very hard on vehicles.

    Advice to Management

    I've been gone too long to have any managerial advice. When I was there the managers worked well with subordinates and we got the job done.

  2. I currently work for Randstad Engineering and the culture and environment are fantastic.

    Pros

    Great team work and growth potential. The president of the company is in our office and makes it a point to be social with us. I am very happy to be working with a company that values its employees and helps me advance in my career.

    I do not have anything negative to say. Wish I would of started working here a long time ago.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Pay was always on time and if there were any discrepancies, they never hesitated to address the issue with the client they/I was representing as often the contracts varied and the client would make erroneous decisions without reviewing the contract of the individual.

    Cons

    None None None None None

    Advice to Management

    I felt that the Management / Client was not always there with the understanding and direction I would expect from that elevated position. This is not Randstad or the Ash Group, it was at the carrier level with whom the placement agency had secured my position.

    Pros

    Flex schedule - able to come in and leave a little bit early to beat the traffic
    Everyone here is really very great.

    I have been here for a little over a year. My expectations for a staffing company were not super high. I have really been blown away by how great the company is! You are helping people get jobs as well as getting the best qualified people for our clients. It's not just a "sit in your cube and talk on the phone" type job

    Everyone gets along really well

    10 days of paid vacation as well as floating holidays and paid sick leave. You are even able to roll over up to 5 days at the end of the year (which has been really great for me this year!)

    Management truly cares and invests in you. They are very transparent and it doesn't seem that any of them have "pets"

    Cons

    The work can get a little monotonous if you are in a bit of a rut, but it is like that with any job

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! You are enthusiastic about Randstad Engineering and its employees and it shows!

    Pros

    *some* of the people are fun to work with

    Cons

    -Three managers in the two years I've been there...
    -Terrible commission structure.
    -"Internal growth" ha! what a joke... being promoted is nearly impossible.
    -Benefits are way too expensive for such a big company.
    -Base salary is decent, but not for the type of hours they want you to work.
    -Unless you're a cute guy, don't expect things to go your way here, a lot of favoritism.
    -Encouraged to work weekends and very late hours
    -Software is terrible, you'll get to know IT very well and they won't be helpful at all...
    -This is a good started job for someone that is interested in recruiting, but get your experience and get out.

    Pros

    None
    Met a few cool coworkers, was able to find a better job while I worked here. That's about it

    Cons

    -Terrible pay, 35k base plus bad commission structure
    -Expensive insurance, I am single with no kids and was paying over $220 a month
    -Favortisim by management, I saw first hand multiple times when management would recruit and fill the position themselves then hand it off to a certain recruiter to help improve numbers. They claimed you must hit requirements to be promoted, however promoted certain individual without them being close to the requirments.
    -Backstabbing by management, they will screw your over in a heart beat.
    -They preach they promote from within, however every time a new promotion spot opened, it was filled from outside the company.
    -Recently changed KPI's and promotion requirments. Now very very difficult. To be promoted
    -No matter what hours you put in they are not happy, it is encouraged to come work on the weekends. Sorry but at 35k, I'm not working the weekends.
    -Terrible software, freezes and crashes multiple times a day.
    -Track all calls for KPI's however, many recruiters/AM's will call personal cell phones or fax numbers to boost call numbers. Nothing is done about this
    -Randstand is taco stand of a company

    Advice to Management

    Quit playing favorites, pay more, listen to your employees, practice what you preach

    Pros

    Good place to start for a recent college grad.

    Cons

    Daily focus meeting - exemplify micro management at its finest.
    Extremely long ramp up process - you will not see a commission check for at least 4 months as and account manager.
    I was asked to work on weekends in addition to my 40hr M-F with no additional incentives.

    Advice to Management

    You will continue to see high turnover rates if this continues.
