    Pros

    Opportunity to grow, location, upcapped commission

    Cons

    No real quarterly events or holiday parties, can't work from home, very numbers driven, most approvals need to go three levels above your direct manager, schedules conference calls to have conference calls, no raises


  5. "Best Job I've Ever Had"

    I have been working at Randstad US full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Work Environment: The most fun I've ever been in and very positive
    -Good base salary
    -Good benefits
    -Great training program and mentorship

    Cons

    -Inconsistent with respect to rewarding and providing resources to successful branches and company divisions.
    -No base remote options

    Advice to Management

    -Keep your successful branches happy and address their needs. Less-successful branches should never have resources and perks that their counterparts don't.

    -Offer some moderate remote options to newer employees if they're performing well. It is reasonable to allow one remote day a week (even to new employees) if they are performing well.

    I worked at Randstad US part-time

    Pros

    Employment is great, but when I moved it created a problem going to work on a bus route that wasn't easily accessible for me.

    Cons

    Retrieving W2 information is a huge problem.

    Advice to Management

    To employee's add up all of your paystubs gross, federal withholding, social security and the last deduction separately.
    You should have gross, federal withholding, and the two other tiers of withholding separate of each other. I found the ein from a prior years tax return.
