    Communication

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey're a very strong company with good clientele and provide jobs that fit your criteria

    ConsCommunication between Randstad and myself hasn't felt very strong, sometimes it takes sending multiple emails to get a response

    They don't have their act together

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsWorking with them was easy, until they made a mistake, which then made it difficult.

    ConsI got a raise during my contract, but it took them 4 weeks to process it. Of course I got back pay, but it took them too long to make it happen. When my contract ended and I applied for unemployment benefits, they made a mistake and said I quit my contract, making me ineligible for unemployment. I didn't quit! The contract simply ended. Now I don't have an check and I probably won't get one for MONTHS, because I can't fix their mistake and at this point, neither can they. They also gave me a huge run-around when I tried to figure out why and how this happened. I can't work for them again; I don't trust them to get anything right.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't play with people. Your mistakes have a huge impact!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Their Wages Stink

    Testing Specialist (Former Employee) Hurst, TX

    ProsIt a job you have nothing else.

    ConsThe wages are ridiculous and you can live if you worked 12 hour days for 6 days a week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhat's wrong with a living wage guys?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Staffing Consultant Expectations

    Staffing Consultant (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat stable company. Sales metrics and leadership are very accessible. Depending on what area you recruit for there is a great work life balance. Great benefits. Work load can be challenging at times but rewarding.

    ConsMetrics can sometimes get in the way of growing your business. The position is more demanding than other staffing companies in that you are the go to person for everything. You seek out the new business, once you have the new business you fill the placements they have open. You find the candidate from job postings to direct recruiting, you are the payroll etc.. you are pretty much an all in one HR department along with being a sales person.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is fair. There are always GREAT managers and and micro managers. Lucky I have a great team. It about what you make of it.
