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

    Pros

    I received a regular paycheck.

    Cons

    Taking payment for Cricket pay as you go phones, I and co-workers were open to full on verbal abuse over the phone by their customers. There is no vacation pay, every call is timed, every minute of every break is accounted for. I had to be open to work nights, weekends, holidays. It was like they wanted everything from me, but only wanted to pay almost minimum wage with no benefits. The customers are all very frustrated, because Cricket does not have any additional lines for customer service. Only this line to make a payment. So they are no able to get help with any problems they are having with their phones. The only way to communicate with Cricket is through Randstad to make a payment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay workers more, create regular schedules, more positive feedback.

    I have been working at Randstad US as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    • Decent pay
    • Engaging local managers
    • Friendly atmosphere
    • Proximity to customer

    I get paid pretty well and enjoy the work I do, so from most perspectives Randstad is a good place to work.

    Cons

    • Horrible 401 contribution
    • Minimum accountability
    • No performance reviews

    Not that this is unique to Randstad, but there is no sense of appreciation between employer and employees. Even as a self-motivated engineer, this atmosphere gets tiring.
