    Great Agency

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsRandstad recruiters have kept me employed for the past year, finding exactly what I was looking for as an Administrative Assistant. The only thing not available has been permanent employment.

    ConsSince the jobs are temporary, there are no PTO, sick days, or vacation days.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to provide some paid time off so we don't lose income when we need to see a doctor or dentist.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    This was a pleasant company to work with.

    Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee)

    ProsThe best part of being talent for randstad was the ability to view all the employee stats online, which included benefits management and paycheck validation.

    ConsSometimes, it seemed very hands off for an employee. At times, it was as if each employee was just another number, but that's probably the case anyway.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCheck on employee satisfaction and fit more often. Extend benefits that match competitors.
