    I have been working at Randstad US full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Outstanding training, excellent career path, a company where you can build your own future through hard work. Our mission is to put people to work. It offers the opportunity to learn not just about staffing, but also about every local market industry.
    You start as a Staffing Consultant and move up the ranks. Randstad focuses on promoting from within. Most executives started in Consultant roles.

    Cons

    I'm not sure I can list any. Results and reliability can really get you anywhere you want in this company. Measure you own ambition and drive. If you are a high performer, Randstad is a great employer for you.

    Pros

    You will learn how to recruit and sell early in. Good culture for those right out of school. One of the largest of its kind. Lots of room for career advancement.

    It can be a factory. The services sold are a commodity and almost impossible to differentiate from your competitors. There are soooo many competitors.

    Advice to Management

    None
