    Cons

    Spouses aren't included in certain company events.

    Pros

    I absolutely love this job, it is not for everyone. The environment is constantly changing and you can never get bored. As a Staffing Manager I am able to Market, Recruit, and place candidates. Although I wouldn't consider myself a sales person, I look at my candidates as my inventory and being able to market their backgrounds to clients is the sales aspect. We recruit to our matrix to have a strategic mix of business and conduct over 20 interviews a week. The fact that Robert Half is so specialized and an ethics forward company, it makes it easy to stand behind the brand and promote candidates of Robert Half.

    Cons

    The one and only con as a Staffing Manager at Robert Half to note are the long hours, we work from 8am-6pm Monday through Friday, but this is to cater to the needs of our candidates, we are available to speak with them about any issues on assignment and check in with them to ensure satisfaction without interfering with their work hours. The company culture of Robert Half is very go, go, go and is not for slackers so anyone with a non-competitive or timid personality would most likely not be a good fit for this environment. For those of us "go-getters" it's the perfect environment!

    Advice to Management

    If we are able to create a staggered schedule so that the 8-6 coverage is still intact

    Pros

    Great compensation, solid work/life balance, good PTO, decent benefits. The best thing about Robert Half is easily the people. Be a part of a motivated team of both sales folks and recruiters that all want to succeed because the bonus structure is great once you've got some tenure. Excellent support from upper management, who either work in your branch or frequently come onsite to local branches to assist with business/team development.

    Cons

    RH is definitely a numbers driven company, be prepared to put in the work early on and build a solid book of business. Management does hold you accountable to daily goals, but not at all a micro-management type of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros
