    I worked at Randstad US full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They're fast about processing to get you out on your first assignment. Turn around for me was less than one week.

    Cons

    -Under paid.
    - Gives you horrible highly unprofessional assignments.
    - complain about harassment or anything that is just completely wrong, they say they will handle it and contact the company and nothing ever comes from it.
    - the ladies of that location were very hard to get ahold of. they were also supposed to submit my papers for relocation to Virginia and never did and was unable to get ahold of them.
    - no benefits.
    - no negotiation of pay.
    - they promised another role until I relocated and that never happened.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be better communication and the agents there need to stop ignoring people out on assignments.

    After the training wheels come off, you're a number on an excel sheet.

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

    Pros

    The recruiter I worked with was very friendly and worked closely with me to find a company that would be a great match. She responded to emails in a acceptable time and always answered my questions.

    Cons

    If you are a temp do not sign up for the health insurance. It seems like a great idea but the company will pay the bare minimum for ER visits and when you call corporate they mock you for signing up for it.

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

    Pros

    They provide vast resources to be competitive in a tough market. Management of the branch I work in along with the region is very supportive, open-minded, and appreciative. There is a lot of opportunity to be successful but it does take a lot of work and determination.

    Training is good, if you enjoy sales or look to purse sales as a career, Randstad is a great company to get experience and get comfortable with your own skill set when dealing with clients.

    Cons

    Depending on the branch & manager, things could be great and the team works together or very hard with every man/women for themselves (so I've heard). It is sales & recruiting, high turnover is expected, so the industry and job is not for those who have minimal drive, assertion, and aggressiveness to succeed in a competitive environment.

    Advice to Management

    More do-diligence in hiring to limit turnover for recent grads.
