I worked at Randstad US as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Thorough application and on-boarding procedures, FCRA-compliant background investigations, prompt weekly direct deposit. Company promises small reward for successful referrals.

Cons

Got the distinct feeling Randstad were sticklers for getting time sheets approved on time mostly for their benefit and not the employee's. No communication at end of assignment which was very successfully completed and which resulted in another good accolade for Randstad.

Advice to Management

How about better reaching out to retain employees who did an exemplary job while in your employ? Or, is it just a bodies and numbers game when it comes to placements? (Wilmington, DE team)
