    I have been working at Randstad Holding full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The training is world-class and compensation is very competitive. Plus the opportunity for bonuses helps to keep income even higher.

    Cons

    Randstad has a sales-focused and profit-driven environment. Pretty much all of the quarterly calls and conversations with management center around the question of how your business is going to grow or continue growing. It tends to contribute to a feeling that nothing you do is good enough, but if you can look past that and realize that in the big picture of the staffing industry, competition is fierce, you'll understand why the company needs that directive.

    I worked at Randstad Holding full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I didn't see any, they use you and only are concerned for what is in it for themselves. You better ask a lot of questions before working for them.

    Cons

    no benefits, low pay and lied to. They are like robots with no empathy or compassion for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get real about people trying to earn a living.

    Pros

    decent earning potential if you are willing to work extremely hard.

    Cons

    constant management changes. Extremely long hours. Terrible benefits. They pick favorites and give special treatment. They make you feel guilty for taking a lunch. Rules are in place but not followed.

    Advice to Management

    Take concerns of your employees seriously

    I worked at Randstad Holding full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Steady work. Decent pay (on market or slightly below). Good place to learn the basics

    Cons

    No one will notice your hard work. Opportunities for advancement usually require relocation. Somewhat cutthroat corporate culture.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with the stupid metrics for recruiters - all the connects, phone calls, reference check, etc. type metrics are falsified anyway. All the metrics do is keep recruiters from innovating. There was no time to innovate w/ social media because we were all busy trying to hit our metrics. Could have just been my office (it was poorly managed) but it seems archaic.

    I have been working at Randstad Holding full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    none, guards smoke while walking on duty, employees smoke pot across the street.

    Cons

    10.50 hour, rude staff, Interview was at 10:00 I waited 30 minutes with 30 people in a tiny room waiting on security. This company switches there name every year due to awful reviews from employees.

    Advice to Management

    This place is full of unprofessional recruiters, I would be embarrassed to work for this company.

    I worked at Randstad Holding part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They had me placed by a recruiter quickly and efficiently. They offered direct deposit. I was placed quickly and efficiently as well. They communicated with the company well. I wound up with a company that worked with me VERY whole heartedly when I needed something.

    Cons

    I had saw minor communications issues over my paychecks before my direct deposit kicked in. It was on occasion hard to get a hold of my recruiter.
