    Pros

    Will put you in a position fairly quickly. They do a minimal interview with you before they place you and it can be on Skype rather than in an office interview.

    Cons

    Will place in about anything so that they get their cut. Will try to talk you into taking something that you really do not want because what they really care about is getting their money. If you turn down positions because you do not feel it is right for you, they will quit trying to place you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to help the employees and not just the clients.

    If you're looking for temp work, it's perfect. They pay well compared to other temp agencies I've been with. Occasionally have temp-to-hire positions.

    Cons

    Depending on the role they put you in, it might be mindless work.

    Pros

    They'll hire you in ten minutes (this should strike you as suspicious).

    Cons

    They trick you into accepting a lower pay than originally stated (for the same work). Their clients (for whom you work) are the bottom barrel garbage employers, such as New Hudson Facades, which has gone through at least 5 temps before me in just a few weeks. The people at Robert Half will show you a huge fake smile and fake friendly attitude as they scam you into a horrible job. When the client (job) is done using you, they'll make up a bunch of lies, so then the people at Accountemps will throw all these personal accusations against you for hurting their "relationship" with the client firm. Just to ice the cake, Accountemps will lose your initial hire documents, and blame you for it as an additional reason for firing you.

    Advice to Management

    Look yourselves in the mirror and be ashamed.
