    Pros

    They are a contracting Company, my handlers are easy to talk with, Pay is Weekly and on time.

    Cons

    You do have to sign a non compete with them and will not be able to be hired by the company you are on contract with for 6 months after your contract ends. This is pretty typical for a contract company and I can't complain. Their Medical plan is expensive and I opted out of it. Once they get you in the door they will try to keep you at the same pay rate for successive contracts that really should pay higher.

    Advice to Management

    Your people should check their own database before cold calling someone who is already working with another staff member and already on contract with Randstadt.

    Pros

    Randstad is a company that rewards hard workers / strong performers. The company prepares you for success & supports you in every capacity. My top 3 reasons for loving this company: 1.) Excellent Leadership, starting with our CEO, President, Executives, Senior Management & Field Management. 2.) Excellent training programs & learning opportunities at each level in the organization. 3.) Unlimited advancement opportunities (I've had 5 promotions in 5.5 years).

    Cons

    This company is not for people that just want a paycheck. This company is for people that want to be very successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Our executives do everything possible to ensure that the field is successful & continuously innovating to make our jobs easier.

    Company has a lot of nice perks, lunch and incentives for meeting goals
    Busy during the day so time goes by fast.
    Many paths for career growth

    Cons

    Metrics are set up so that you sometime fell like you are stalking your potential clients/customers
    Your numbers can be up but if the branch is down you may not get bonus.
    Every office is slightly different so you need to make sure your personality matches your office co-worker.

    Pros

    Sometimes last-minute assignments are available

    Cons

    Sometimes assignments are ONLY at last minute

    Advice to Management

    Have your staffing personnel keep searching for positions for ALL registered folks, rather than just the ones who've been used regularly.

    Pros

    I have been with Randstad for over 4 ½ years now and have loved my experience! I began my career with Randstad shortly after college. I had given the outside sales role a try in the telecomm industry and it just wasn’t for me. I was attracted to Randstad for three main reasons: the continuous learning and growth potential, the stability and ability to assist professionals in their job search was rewarding to me.
    If you are looking for an organization that offers a competitive sales environment, rewarding return on your investment, room to rapidly grow with a company into management and a lucrative compensation plan then I would suggest giving Randstad a try.

    Cons

    The job is one that is one that is very fast paced and at times can be difficult if you are one that struggles with time management.
