    Pros

    This staffing company sends you on good assignments with good clients .

    Cons

    Very important that you take care allof your business before starting the assignment or else you will be in a serious crossroads and even in jeopardy of termination from the assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Trust only that if you see this company tied with your applicant they are skilled to do the Job.

    Pros

    The company helped me find a temp full time job within a few days. The staff was nice and I was impressed with their swiftness.

    Cons

    The office location that I went to was a bit confusing. However, there is not too much to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing! Perhaps you can offer tips on job interviews for new employees.

    Pros

    When you prove yourself there are endless growth opportunities. Fantastic learning and development department! Competitive base and bonus structure.

    Cons

    No work/life balance! Expectations are unrealistic from managers that haven't been in the "field" in years. Company is getting too big for their own good, different divisions are competing with each other rather than representing the Randstad brand as a whole.
    Great results are never good enough, always on to the next thing.

    Pros

    Great training, lots of work space, employee discount

    Cons

    Was let go without any warning. Wasn't able to take a normal break the first week because of learning the system.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure when doing these seasonal position, allow the employee to adjust to the job. If they are doing something wrong, let them know about it before they let you go. Now I have no job and the mortgage due.

    Pros

    Some time flexibility and nothing more.

    Cons

    They think a sweatshop is the best way. While trying to get more labor for the buck they actually get less accomplished due to mismanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Share some of your plans with the contributors. Giving orders for the next 4 hours is not the best way..

    Pros

    A decent set of clients in key areas of the city

    Cons

    Once you start an assignment, you're on your own. They never do quality calls to find out how you're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect for the people who make you commissions and call them to find out if they need anything.

    Pros

    Make sure you know how much you're willing to make hourly, they try to low ball you but you can talk yourself up to a higher rate. If you work onsite at a good company it can make everything better.

    Cons

    Easy to get in communication with. Everything is done online so filling out forms was convenient.

    Advice to Management

    Consider growth opportunities for current employees. Take level of education into account as well when giving salary rate.

    Pros

    Bonuses, awarded if top performer, well compensated if your hitting budget and metrics

    Cons

    Work life balance, not much of it, it is truly like running your own business (which could be a good thing if you have that dream)

    Advice to Management

    More shadowing, interface more with the team, engage internal employees more, they will perform for you if you recognize them!
