    Pros

    Company has specific training guidelines presented when you first start. Bonus opportunities if you are in certain roles. Contests to win extra money if you are in the right role.

    Cons

    Training based on position, bonuses based on position, contests based on position. How you are treated is determined by local manager and company as a whole. Only sales people are valued and rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include ALL internal employees in bonus opportunities, employee engagement surveys, and opportunities to advance. Not just sales people.

    Pros

    Randstad's found a job, but the job was 40 miles away

    Cons

    Randstad's found a job that was 40 miles away, this created a travel expense that was not equal to the part-time salary that was being offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would ask that even through job placements are successful, please work with your agents to ensure that they are placed in positions that allow their personal advancement. Otherwise, the agent will not be satisfied and look for other opportunities.

    Pros

    The managers I've met have a caring approach and don't micromanage. Compensation and benefits are very competitive. The company also has an in-house continuing education program.

    Cons

    The hiring process is very long with several interviews and multiple assessments.

    Former Employee - Branch Manager

    I worked at Randstad US full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Higher paying base salary but no bonus potential. Great technology and IT software to micromanage the branch staff. Incredible amount of conference calls.

    Cons

    Branch environment is extremely pressured, unappreciated, and company will continue to loose market share because there is no investment in customer relationships. Turnover is high and management continues to believe all will be fixed with new, younger faces in the branch. Customers disagree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and hire, retain and appreciate top talent. You are in the people business.
