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

    Pros

    Randstad assured my contract salary requirements by communicating with the employer(s) and reviewing my hours on a weekly basis. They also provided other opportunities to fulfill my hours per week.

    Cons

    One would have to be clear on the contract length because they offer a 6 month employment term, if any prospective employee is concerned with the length of the term.

  8. "One of the best ever!"

    I have been working at Randstad US as a contractor

    Pros

    I've been a contractor for most of my career, and this is one of the best recruitment agencies I've ever been with. They are as interested in you after the contracts are signed as they were during recruitment. There are half a dozen of us at the current client's, and my rep gets us all together for lunch (Randstad's treat) every month to talk about the ups and downs. This contract is ending (a little sooner than expected) and they are all trying very hard to place each. of us elsewhere.

    Benefits are pretty good, too, and the costs are reasonable. And you even accrue sick/PTO time!

    Cons

    I'm not thrilled with any of the websites for timekeeping or benefits

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

    Pros

    They work hard to find a good situation for their contract employees.
    Provide excellent support and are easily accessible.
    Positive atmosphere, supportive & cheerful staff.
    Knowledgeable about the industry and area.

    Cons

    As a contractor, you have the option to get benefits but it may not be the most affordable option out there.

    Pros

    Randstad is much better than TekSystem in terms of their attention to their contract workers. There is dedication to finding continuous engagement and employment.
