    Great Experience

    InterimController (Former Employee) Union, NJ

    ProsInterim Controller Experience was excellent. Work environment friendly. Staff was very knowledgeable. Robert Half kept in contact with me and also consulting company.

    ConsJob assignments are sporadic at best. It appears other recruiter don't want to share your information as they might share commissions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorp Website needs to navigate between opportunities easier. Recruiter need to share clients without penalties. More opportunities for all.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good starting company to learn basics of recruiting.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe compensation plan is higher than you will make at any other agency, they want you to succeed. Good intro to sales as well.

    ConsRobert Half is still very old school and change doesn't happen that often. There are not too many growth opportunities, just compensation opportunities.
