    Pros

    The office is nice and is in a great location.

    Cons

    I worked, internally, for Ruthi Postow Staffing and it was a horrible experience. One of the manager is in the office but incredibly flakey. She comes into the office everyone once and awhile and stomp arounds and gets upset because every doesn't have things properly clipped into their binders. She is obsessed with doing things in file folders and hand written documents and hardly knows what a computer is. The other manager teleworks and lectures everyone, every morning on the phone while most of the staff roll their eyes. There is incredible turn over on the internal staff. Please look at other staffing firms with more developer, built out training programs!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsource your training for internal hires, especially for business development.

    Pros

    Great location, some truly amazing people worked there, happy hours often happen. You get to work with some really cool clients and employees.

    Cons

    Management is very fickle. They have a churn and burn mentality and people either leave or get fired really quickly. Don't be fooled by all of the "great" perks...they come with a price. The salary is very low to start with, although you do earn commission, it takes a while.

    I have been working at Ruthi Postow Staffing full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is extremely positive and cohesive, which is clear from the high ratings on other websites, and from the constant feedback I receive from clients and candidates. I can't say enough great things about this organization. Management is hands off, resulting in higher employee innovation, and opportunity to design and implement projects. I would highly, and proudly recommend this organization to anyone job seeking in the DC-Area. Due to their small-boutique nature they give you the one-on-one attention that you deserve, if they don't have a position for you, they'll be straight forward, unlike other staffing companies that are focused on numbers.

    Cons

    I can't think of a single change I would make.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing a great job, I wouldn't request a single thing.

    I have been working at Ruthi Postow Staffing

    Pros

    * Results. I came to Ruthi Postow after having been struggling to find even a minimum wage jobs, despite a degree from a respected university and a resume full of nationally competitive internships. In less than a week they found me a job in my field, with a guarantee of at least two months, in a gorgeous office, with generous pay.
    * Energy and passion. Everyone on the staff clearly wants to help you. I have worked for temp agencies that treated me like dirt -- as if they were doing me a favor I didn't deserve. The people at RPS were clearly excited to learn what I was really interested in, and within minutes we were brainstorming possible positions they could find for me. Whenever you call or drop by the office, it's never a burden on them (or if it is they're such pros they don't let it show!).

    Cons

    * I am hard-pressed to think of negatives. As with any staffing agency, your experience may differ wildly depending on your skills and what their clients are looking for. And there are the usual restrictions regarding employment arranged by the agency. But this has been so negligible, in my experience, as to almost not warrant mention.

    I have been working at Ruthi Postow Staffing

    Pros

    They placed me more than five years ago in a 70K job- I was laid off earlier this year but my salary had risen to over 90K. I called the same recruiter that placed me and she had me come right in. (Unbelievably nice people). She sat me down and let me vent about how upsetting it is having to start from scratch again. I was interviewed later in the week by the CEO of a mid sized investment firm and we really hit it off. I was hired the following Monday at 105K base with a significant signing bonus and the best benefits I've ever had. These guys have been my saviors...twice. Also, they have the most gorgeous offices!!!

    Cons

    I have to say- I absolutely hate computer testing. They made me retest even though I went through the process last time. The software has been updated to 2007 from 2003 so I understand but at my level there is so much more than computer skills. The second negative point, if I had to choose, is the time it takes. Ruthi Postow Staffing is a smaller to mid-sized agency. They have the very high level positions but it can take a while for them to pinpoint the right one for you. It will cost the candidate a lot of time but it is very much worth it in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had two very good experiences with Ruthi Postow Staffing. My advice would be to keep away from redundant testing for particular candidates but keep the intense interviewing process.
