    I would give employee goals to move up with in the company, schedule regular skip 1 meetings with employees. Appreciate your employees a little more.

    Pros

    The recruiter I worked with was very friendly and worked closely with me to find a company that would be a great match. She responded to emails in a acceptable time and always answered my questions.

    Cons

    If you are a temp do not sign up for the health insurance. It seems like a great idea but the company will pay the bare minimum for ER visits and when you call corporate they mock you for signing up for it.

    I worked at Randstad US as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, comparable to other staffing agencies in the area

    Cons

    Extremely poor communication. Terrible followup, if they are trying to fill a position they are all over you but once you are in a position they don't care if you need to talk to them. The health insurance they offer is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Providence office used to be well run. I worked with them a few years ago and they were fantastic. I worked with them recently and it was like night and day (see Cons above). I don't know what happened but they need to fix things FAST if they want to get and keep good people. My recent bad experience was not the only one, unfortunately for them. There were 3 other temps where I was and they all had the same experience. Their reputation in RI with temp workers and clients is going south fast.

    I enjoyed the working as a team, getting the job assignments completed for the day! Different job stations every few days!

    I liked that I had insurance after I just started!
