    Pros

    Commitment to new hires, great training

    Cons

    Stressful and very fast paced. Get used to seeing coworkers let go because they are not meeting expectations. Management works with them to improve but eventually, it is not in either parties interest to continue working in a sales job if you are not making money.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Robert Half full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really liked working with Robert Half because they had a broader client base than most of the local companies. The assignments provided more opportunity to be exposed to different industries. The account managers were great to work with for preparing to interview with their clients so that I was prepared for interview.

    Cons

    Really had no issues to bring here
