    Pros

    Quick to respond, had helpful tips on how to improve my resume, quick job placement.

    Cons

    Was not very clear on how long the "temp" part of "temp-to-hire" position will last. Gave the impression that it would be 2-3 months, but is actually closer to half a year.

    I have been working at Robert Half full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love a fast paced work environment. Currently, my manager is the best. Doesn't micromanage AT ALL. I'm sure that's not the case with every office.

    I also love sales because you are your own entrepreneur and you are responsible for building your book of business.

    Cons

    Pretty competitive (good thing) and can be frustrating for the first few months getting started.
