Senior Recruiting Manager
Hey everyone, i have 3.5 years of experience in executive search. Really strong history of success - achieved a promotion six months in at my first firm, rookie of the year for highest billing’s and presidents club qualifier. And I’m looking for a new gig. If it’s in the agency world is there such thing has only being responsible for the candidate side? If so, where can I find those roles. Also, how hard is it to get into some of the big names like randstad, Lhi, phaidon etc. Referrals?

Tried applying through Randstad. Chose to do an over the phone interview, and the guy didn't call. I e-mailed him, he apologized, told me to call a certain number back, and when I called this lady answered and asked for my social. I didn't give it to her, obviously. Is this a scam? The Randstad site seems to be legit, other than everything being in lowercase. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I started working as Sales Associate (Part-time) 2021 at Freedom Mobile while studying for HRM at Humber College. In Feb 2023 got promoted to Team Lead role. Currently, I’m looking to pivot in HR industry and trying to leverage my Co-op(2022) exp. from my time at Randstad to get a role in HR coordinator/ recruiter/ talent management space. I’ve been applying for almost 3-4 months now, any advice on how to go about this in the current market? Based in Toronto, I’m open to relocation.

- 4.0Dec 23, 2014Staffing ConsultantCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearSwedesboro, NJ
The company has an unbelievable bonus/commission structure compared to most. 80% of all open positions are promoted from within. They also provide great training for new employees and throughout your career to enhance your skill set. The company also operates well by providing great service to consultants and the temporary employees.
The benefits could be a little bit better and there needs to be a tier program for bonuses. The smaller branches that bring in half the revenue or less can earn the same amount in bonuses for the large branches that bring in the highest revenues for the company. They need to restructure that so the high volume branches are rewarded for growth that is much harder to earn than a newer lower volume branch with lots of market opportunity.1

I have been in the staffing industry a while and people commonly seek out the imperfections of their company and the easy target issues. When you work for a 22 billion dollar organization there will always be some flawed people and oversight you do not agree with. At the end of the day It comes down to the character of the leadership team and the directive they give their management. I can say with the utmost confidence that the RandstadUSA leadership team is sound and has ethics, culture, and employee growth/retention as the foundation of their vision/strategy. As long as the core team stays intact, you will see great things out of this company in the next 5 years.
Benefits could be better. I haven’t seen a competitors package that is significantly better though, so you have to chalk it up to the industry not the company. It would be great if they would be thought leaders and use better benefits as yet another differentiator.

Randstad has great people and management. The atmosphere is laid back with the option to wear jeans every day. Some teams also allow help desk technicians to work from home
The benefits at this employer are over 500 dollars a month for one employee per month. It is unfortunate. Most employees here find insurance elsewhere as this is unaffordable.

I was hired by Randstad on site for the Vanguard Group. Everyone was really helpful. I had some tax issues and the HR team was quick to fix them.
The benefits are not good and they did not offer any PTOs while I was there. You lost your entire pay for the day if you took any time off.1
- 2.0Oct 13, 2019Travel Nurse RecruiterFormer Employee, more than 1 yearAustin, TX
You gain a lot of experience as this job will test you in many ways. I was with RHC for 1 year, but it felt like several. The larger company, Randstad offers a lot of cool perks like paid Volunteer time and access to a lot of different professional networks. Not much beyond that, unfortunately.
-Extremely High Turnover rate. 7 recruiters and 2 managers leaving within 9 months along with a historic pattern of churning and burning recruiters (most don't make it past a year if that). -Have recently implemented a new process where new hires come on as a contractor for 6 months and are then offered a permanent position. Only 1 or 2 out of 10 new hires they bring on will obtain that, and it has a lot to do with who mentors them and what territory they end up recruiting for. Randstad Healthcare has little interest in training or investing in new hires (or tenured people at that), but rather testing to see who can swim in a sea of chaos, disorganization, and unpredictability that is Travel Nursing. - The training is a joke. You are trained by someone who was NEVER A RECRUITER and you are set up for failure from day 1. In addition, there is very little coaching and mentorship beyond that. I'd say their training teaches you how the car works but they don't teach you to drive so to speak. -Travel Nursing is a highly saturated space with Dozens of different Agencies all with access to the same jobs going after the same Nurses. With that, Randstad doesn't give you much to be able to distinguish yourself from the competition. (Randstad offers their travelers more expensive insurance that doesn't even start on day 1, along with fewer rewards, and lacks close relationships with facilities that offer competitive pay and more favorable working conditions.) - The Travel Nursing space is hard, to begin with. I personally did not enjoy working with many of these Nurses as they can be unprofessional, rude, and abusive to their recruiters (and they can get away with it because recruiters are really a dime in a dozen). -Complete disorganization in the ATS. - Honestly, if you want to work in the travel nursing space, you can find a better agency to work for that has better jobs, resources, training, coaching, mentorship, and benefits that can make you stand out from your competitors. -Not at all a mission drive organization like they claim to be, purely about the bottom line. Cares more about making new placements and getting more deals than providing resources and benefits for Talent who have been already working with us. A big part of ramping up in staffing is getting talent to redeploy/extend with you, and Randstad gives their active talent little incentive to take new contracts or extend through them.3Randstad US Response5y

Good benefits for Contractors Sales team will go to bat for you
Poor Communication When I gave notice, I was called by the DIRECTOR at my contract position immediatly after giving notice and was bashed, yelled at for not giving a full 2 week notice. Understandable why they were upset but I was offered Full Time Perm with Benefits and needed me quickly. The contract position was not fully up and running and they understood that I did not want them investing alot of their time in getting me set up. When dealing with payroll the gal was rude and short with me the entire time of my employment. Management then called and bashed me to the contractee. They were okay with everything and understood. Appreciated me giving the heads up as soon as possible.2

Company has many recruiter contracts. Fast to set up interviews and make offers
Health benefits are higher; benefits contact are difficult to reach (with questions).

Trust and empowerment. The management team has been trusting and empower since day 1.
The benefits may not be the best or competitive in the IT market compare to other companies.

No Pros. It is one of the worst company to work. They say project is for 3 years and recruit us but after one year they lay off with no proper response. Lay offs is more here. They don't even attend your calls when we ask for second project and they just lay off with no response.
worst company with no benefits to work with and they terminate employment with no reasons.1Randstad US Response7y
