Randstad cares about their employees

Site Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Randstad Holding full-time for more than a year

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

ConsRandstad 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
